M12 fuel 4ah battery, does it suitaible for this saw kit?

Asked by Ved August 5, 2020
3
Answers

Yes the Larger M12 batteries can be used on this but it really only effects the run time which will be longer, not so much the power, at least I haven't seen much difference, your milage may vary!

Will this work for an exterior drain pipe?

Asked by 808DIYer June 1, 2020

Answers

No!

Is the motor brushless? "Fuel" is brushless. Advertised professional use. Battery life and maintenance intervals matter.

I don’t believe its FUEL but it has surprising power and run time. Even on small batteries. Hope this helps.

I've had this tool about a year now and I really like it's cutting ability & small size. This little hackzall is really quite the beast, you put on the right blade for the job and it'll work just like it's big brother for many jobs! I now go to it first and I'm always amazed how well it cuts! I only wish they would put the slide lock/unlock switch somewhere else, maybe even just a little higher, as it gets hit by accident all the time by my hand and I have to stop what I'm doing to push it back to unlock, the same issue goes for their drill & drivers too for that matter. I've use this tool with attachments as well like scraping blades & metal brushes for paint prep (see pic) and it does a good job with those attachments too. I've even thrown on a tree limb cutting blade to trim my trees & bushes, it's so much, easier, faster, cleaner & safer than a chain saw. If you found this review helpful please click on the thumbs up. Thanks!

I'm Just diy-er who loves quality tools. I used it and bought it cause I had to get into a confined space. To cut some drainpipe. It did the job. Took too long. I should of got a corded saw or a m18 for my application. I just bought the wrong tool... I believe this to be a good tool. It was my fault for using something not designed for the job.

I manage a small casual restaurant, so I'm basically an on-call plumber whenever one of our drains need unclogging. Bought the M12 Cordless Snake Drain to replace a cheap drain auger w/drill attachment that got kinked very badly and was a pain to use. I've used the Milwaukee for two drains already and it has been easy to use and cleared the clogs with ease. Cordless means quicker setup and no power cords running across the floor that could be a tripping hazard in the kitchen. Battery life is good (did two drains and only went down 1 LED light out of 4 LEDs, had plenty of power to snake more drains). The outer casing that covers the drum protects it from rubbing and slapping against drain pipes and parts of your body. The locking mechanism is easy to use (pull in to lock and pull out to unlock). The cable is a bit thicker which resists kinking and helps it fight through tough clogs. Best feature of this Snake Drain is how easily you can clean the cable and drum. You remove 4 screws and out pops the drum and cable together. Drum has a wide enough opening to pour hot water in to clean out all the drain sediment that could cause rust and corrosion on the cable. Quick, easy, and not too messy. Then you let it dry and spray some lubricant on the cable to prevent it from rusting. Should last awhile if the cable and drum are cleaned and maintained properly. Rather than going through one or two cheaper drain snakes every year in our kitchen, the Milwaukee Snake Drain will definitely lasts us for years.

I've had my Hackzall for over a year now and its been through some hard work. I mostly use it for cutting 1/2' conduit but it has gone through 2' before. from angle Iron to 2x4 wood this really takes on the smaller job that you don't want to break the big saw out for. However mine finally died on me. I for sure got my money worth. I looked into sending it in for repair and its $80+ to send it in. I'll probably just upgrade to the Fuel instead of sending it in. I buy a lot of Milwaukee and it's been the first tool yet to quit on me.

Clogs have met their match!
One of the many great aspects of the Milwaukee cordless line is that not only do they offer all of the standard tools that you'd expect - a ton of them, I might add - but also so many specialized ones, such as this drain snake, offering convenient solutions to specific tasks, for both the tradesman and homeowner alike. I didn't have any clogs that needed snaking right away, but I did let my plumbing buddy try it on a couple of service calls. He said that he found it to have plenty of power, and was really happy that he didn't have to worry about running an extension cord out across the floor in someone's nice home. He liked it so much, ran out and bought one shortly afterward. Odd to say, but I'm actually looking forward to having a clog at home here!

Never using a hand snake again
It's rare for me to get a powertool I don't think I'll use regularly. However, with a bad arm and fighting tough clogs with a hand snake I grabbed this the moment I saw it. The kit comes with everything you need to fight a tough clog. The unit itself, a float charger to keep the battery ready to go and a bucket to catch the extra water draining off the line when you're done. I charged it up and wasn't sure what to expect from the tool. Dropped the battery in, pulled the trigger and WOW it's torquey. It was hard to keep the thing from rotating! Speeds were selectable as with any drill and speed is selectable based on how hard you pull the trigger. To unlock the reel you push the plastic sleeve forward which lets you manually feed out the cord. When you find resistance, you pull it back to lock it in place and run the tool. Lucky for me, unfortunately for the review, I haven't had the need to use it yet. No family or friends have needed it and our plumbing is still clog free. However, when I do get the chance I have no doubts this will cut through the clogs with ease

Ez Twist Change Blade and Comfortable Grip Hackzall
I've a hope chest of 3rd generation old tools. Receiving this modern version of a Reciprocating saw was a blast! I've spent hours looking for the right tool to put a blade on an old reciprocating saw. I'm having fun just using a couple of fingers to twist a knob with the Quik-Lok blade clamp. The grip is small enough for a woman, with rubber to make it easy to control. This isn't a tool I've used often. I've never had one I could grip and control. I'm looking forward to learning new things to do with it besides basic wood cutting. This Hackzall can be bought as an add on to the 12 Volt Red Lithium Ion Tools with Battery Kits, like the Brushless Drill. They come with an extra battery so both tools can be used in one project. Lastly, if you didn't notice in the specs, this has a 5, Five year warranty!
