Product Overview

The MILWAUKEE M18 FUEL SWITCH PACK Sectional Drum System 1/2" Kit is the first drain cleaning solution that combines the benefits of sectional and drum machines, creating the single most versatile and mobile machine on the market. The SWITCH PACK System utilizes a modular design with backpack straps allowing users to easily transport it to any roof, drain, crawl space or cleanout. The tool-free drum connection enables users to quickly switch between cable sizes or add a second drum, allowing them to reach 100' down the line. All SWITCH PACK drain cleaning drums are fully enclosed providing users with the best protection against job site mess. The POWERSTATE Brushless Motor provides users with more clearing power than corded units for tough jobs in up to 4" drain lines. Built-in REDLINK PLUS Intelligence improves user control, slowing the machine up to 5X faster than competitor drums. Milwaukee's M18 REDLITHIUM battery pack powers through multiple jobs on a single charge, providing cordless mobility, safety, and power supply to the drain cleaning industry. The 1/2" cable is best for use on 3" - 4" drain lines. Other cable sizes also available. The SWITCH PACK is also compatible with the CABLE DRIVE Assembly (47-53-2774) that allows users to automatically feed and retract cable up to 15-20 feet per minute. The CABLE DRIVE assembly quickly attaches to and swaps between any Milwaukee SWITCH PACK Drum with the Mounting Plate (47-53-2773) installed.

I'm comfortable to say how amazing this cordless drain cleaning swith pack drum system works with ease. I've done several drain cleaning jobs on the roof and front/rear clean outs. Such a smooth backpack carry with sectional drums with a handle for easy carry. The kit comes with a backpack, 2 switch pack drums that is a complete 100 foot line, charger, 2 battery packs, foot pedal, 4 head attachments and 1 pin key. Make sure to read the operator's manual for complete instructions on the proper use. I'm very happy on how easy, convenient, compact and cordless this kit is. Its easy to clean while the drum covers is one latch from opening. The pin key makes it easy to easily remove the head attachments. Another great feature is the ease of adding the secondary switch pack drum to extend the cable line. I will say again this cordless drain cleaner makes it so much easier and fast without having to deal with any extension cords. Please make certain that your battery packs are fully charged prior to any work. Oh yes!!! be sure to use the kickstand while having the drum in use. This kit comes with everything you need and the design makes the task much faster and I have used the commercial size drain cleaners and understand how heavier, bothering with the electrical cords and its not very light to carry onto the roof of a house or industrial buildings.

This M18 FUEL SWITCH PACK Sectional Drum System has been designed for drain cleaning professionals. It is a brand new system and offers solutions to many of the difficulties faced using conventional methods of drain cleaning. This system offers portability. It is a back pack and so can be carried hands free to wherever the stoppage is located. It is HEAVY so it will take a strong back and shoulders to pack it around. The other benefits include: a tool free drum connection so different cable sizes can be interchanged, fully enclosed drums for mess containment, accepts other brand cables and lots more. We have a septic system and have had the problem of a certain area of pipe freezing when it gets super cold. Hopefully with this system the problem can be handled at the first sign of slowed drainage. No more digging up frozen ground. We are not professionals, the access to the pipe is out in the open and we are old so this wonderful system will be packed around on a hand truck. Another excellent Milwaukee product.

A convenient and customizable drain cleaning system for both the professional and the DIYer. Milwaukee sells this system in a variety of configurations. This particular configuration 2775C-222 includes the following: 1 - SWITCH PACK powered base (2775-20) 2 - SWITCH PACK drums with anchor cable (47-53-2775) 2 - 1/2 in. x 50 in. inner core coupling cable with rust guard plating (48-53-2774) 4 - Cable head attachments with RUST GUARD plating and pin key (48-53-2790) • Medium Funnel Head Attachment w/ RUST GUARD™ Plating (48-53-2786) • Medium Drop Head Attachment w/ RUST GUARD™ Plating (48-53-2787) • 1-1/2" Spade Bit Attachment w/ RUST GUARD™ Plating (48-53-2788) • 1-1/2" C-Cutter Attachment w/ RUST GUARD™ Plating (48-53-2789) • Pin Key 2 - M18 REDLITHIUM XC5.0 extended capacity battery packs (48-11-1850) 1 - M18 and M12 multi-voltage charger (48-59-1812) The Powered Base accepts M18 batteries on one side and the foot switch on the other. It features backpack style straps for easy transportation to the job site. A switch on top allows selection of Forward, Reverse and Off. The foot pedal can ne conveniently stored in the top of the Power Base. The system electronically slows and stops the drum when pressure is released from the foot pedal. Milwaukee claims this is 5x faster than other manufacturers. The system spins the cable at 250 RPM. A maximum of 100 feet of cable is supported. The Switch Pack Drums can be fitted with a variety of cables (75 ft. x 5/16 in. inner core cable; 50 ft. x 3/8 in. and 1/2 in. inner core cable; 50 ft. x 5/8 in. open wind cable). In this particular system it came with the 50 ft. x 1/2 in. inner core cable. The drums will also accept cables from other manufacturers. The drum itself is metal as is the guide pipe but the outer shell is a polymer to reduce weight. The drum drops into and latches on to the Powered Base. A belt in the Powered Base presses against a pulley on the drum to spin the cable via the brushless motor. The cables feature a proprietary rust guard coating which Milwaukee claims provides 3x longer life and 20x rust resistance. A unique cable wind geometry provides stronger pull force and sustains shape. The connectors are as small as the cable to ensure no snagging. Connection between cables and and attachments is very secure and requires the pin key to separate them. There is no concern of the attachments separating while in the pipe. Carrying the product to the job site is easy by strapping on the backpack powered base and carrying one or two drums by hand. This setup also makes it easy to climb up a ladder with the equipment to clean from the vent pipe. My first use of the product was to clear a 4 inch landscape line that was clogged with dirt. While I wanted to use the spade bit, I was unable to make the initial sharp bend in the pipe so I switched to the drop head attachment which was able to spin into the turn and down the pipe. I ran out almost 50 feet of cable and broke through the dirt/mud allowing water to finally pass through the drains. This is an outstanding product and will be welcomed by many professional plumbers. The only thing missing with this system is an auto feed mechanism.

This newly released Milwaukee cordless combination drum and sectional drain cleaning snake has just replaced my K400 main line drum drain snake and I finally have the best of both worlds. This dual purpose (sectional and drum) drain cleaner not only is portable for use if you occasionally need to snake going "towards the house" where electrical outlets are either inconvenient or non-existent. A cordless drain snake is long overdue and Milwaukee has put meticulous thought into this professional hybrid plumbers tool. Cables are conveniently housed in their own individual swappable drums so you can either swap out alternative diameter cables or even extend cable runs. Various diameter sized cables up to and including 5/8-inch open wind cables make this perfect for home main lines This is my very first "sectional" drain cleaning system and it already has save my old aching back from having to simultaneously haul horribly heavy 1/2-inch inner core 100 foot runs of cable weighing over 35+ pounds alongside the actual "attached" drain cleaner. Being a 2 piece system (motorized drain cleaner and integral drum housing the actual cable) it is not only safer but easier to "individually" transport and navigate especially if you plan on snaking from multi-storied roof vents. Increasing cable lengths are a joy to perform as all that is required are the additional runs of cable each housed in their own drip-free drum canisters. Drum stops coasting as you let off the pedal allowing this new drain machine to come to a halt immediately unlike corded drain cleaners which take time to eventually stop spinning. This actual Switch Pack drain cleaning system comes with its own attached backpack type straps allows easy transportability to the more difficult to access cleanouts. After each drain clog session you no longer risk offending your spouse/clients dripping foul smelling stain-inducing drips as you exit the work area. No more tracking up home flooring and carpets with wheeled cart tracks which are also notoriously difficult navigating stairs and tight turns. Work areas are now as clean prior to you performing work as each cable canister is designed with "container within container" making it virtually impossible of flinging foul smelling sewer droplets on floors, walls and carpeted areas I can also reuse the old K400 accessories and cables thereby minimizing upgrade costs. This Milwaukee drain cleaning kit comes with two (2) M18 5AmpH lithium-ion batteries along with a dual purpose M12/M18 charger. Same charger will also charge Milwaukee M12 batteries making it a very features rich and cost effective kit with room to expand to all current Milwaukee M12/M18 tools. I've always been extremely cautious using corded drain cleaners since we are always exposed to wet floors and running water. I always use full flow garden hoses during a normal snaking session to help clear clogged main lines and as we all know water and electricity never ever mix very well. Cordless now resolves this dangerous concern. Power on this drain cleaner is supplied by Milwaukee's M18 brushless motor which not only minimizes battery drain issues but enables a already generous extended run time. If you are a professional plumber this Milwaukee drain cleaner is a very cost effective all-in-one drain cleaning system for both main lines, bathroom and kitchen drains. The addition of the newest Milwaukee 9AmpH battery should also eliminate battery recharging for weeks at a time.

very poor design and it fails on each and every use.
wow, it looks like i am up against some certified professional reviewers for home depot. by home depot badges, you can see how many reviews they have given on products. this is my only review. i have had the milwaukie switchpack 18v drain snake for two years. we tried to use it the first 6 months because, if it worked, it would help the plumbing company clear drains with one person, not two. on the first job the snake wound up in the drum, second, third, fourth, fifth,........the drums had to be taken apart full of sewage to untangle the cables. very embarrassing to us on the jobs. we left it on the shop floor for the next 6 months and used the giant heavy machines again. we got busy doing drains for awhile and decided to get the milwaukie going. we ordered two new packs and four new cables, all different sizes. upon use, and at any resistance at all, the cables all bound up in the drum. we called milwaukie and asked what we were doing wrong. in two separate calls, a rep said she was sending us all newly designed drums and cable replacements. other reps said they new of nothing faulty. we are still waiting for the five drums and 9 ruined cables. we can bind these cables by holding them with our hands.

    This cordless drain cleaning system is pretty dang amazing! It's probably overkill for our needs but my fiancé had so much fun using it and telling me how awesome it is! Pretty much you will never have to call Roto Rooter again! This kit powers through clogs and what we think might have been some tree roots in our pipes. All I know is we have drainage like we never had before after just one use. This M18 FUEL SWITCH PACK Sectional Drum System packs the convenience of a backpack carrying pack for hauling everything you need right to the job. It comes with everything you need to tackle your clog issue. 1 qty SWITCH PACK powered base, 2 qty SWITCH PACK drum with anchor cable, 2 qty 1/2 in. x 50 in. inner core coupling cable with rust guard plating, 4 qty cable head attachments with RUST GUARD plating and pin key, 2 qty M18 Lithium extended capacity battery pack, 1 qty Electronic foot pedal, 1qty M18 and M12 multi-voltage charger. If you need a longer reach you can easily add another cable or even a different size. Really easy to use. Battery seems to hold a long charge after 30 minutes it was still strong. Expensive system but worth the money if you will use it often for yourself and all your friends and neighbors or if you are a professional drain person this would definitely do the job!

    am not a professional plumber. I’m a hardcore DIY, however, and a certified tool snob. I was given the chance to review Milwaukee’s new drum kit drain auger system with several sized cables. These cables have a slide-in coupling design that attaches the end of the cable to a stud that’s mounted in the drum. The coupling is a clever design but changing cables is not the most pleasant experience and really requires two people, IMO. You really want a drum dedicated for each length of cable you have. Like all my Milwaukee tools, this kit is excellent. It’s rugged, with well-fitting parts. Nothing flimsy that looks like it might be a problem down the road. With a drum, it’s quite heavy. The drums easily lift out for instant exchange or easier carrying. Once on site, just find a place near the drain, feed the cable into the drain to get started and, while feeding it in, operate the foot peddle for the auger action. The foot peddle is one direction, which is how the cable is designed to operate (coils direction) but if it gets bound there is a switch on the backpack for reverse direction. The backpack has a simple but clever storage system for the attachments and an included pin tool is used to change them. Love the sliding coupling system this uses. Two 5AH batteries are a great fit for something that needs this much power. As for available cable sizes … I find Milwaukee’s product descriptions for these cables to be confusing. I’m going to go on a tangent here because if you’re studying their line of cables this will be helpful. I spent almost an hour on the phone with their support and that’s how long it took us to figure out what the deal is with the line of cables offered and their compatibility with the drum kit. They advertise a 5/16” kit, which is the backpack and drum (all kits use the same drum), but their website doesn’t mention the 5/16” cable part number (48-53-2772). Some of their literature calls this cable a drop head, but it’s really a fixed bulb head, incapable of using the attachments. Even worse, the 5/16” cable that I received does not have the required slide coupling so I can’t use it (it’s not the just-mentioned part number). Also, of the attachments that come with the drum kit, only one of them is a drop head. The others slide on with the coupling, but they are fixed and don’t hang. I haven’t seen the 3/8” cable (48-53-2773), but it looks as if it does accept the attachments. There are actual several lengths of this dia cable. Be sure it’s a “coupling” cable, though. The ½” cable is (48-53-2774) and finally the 5/8” dia version is (48-53-2775). These cables are well-built and flow nicely in and out of the drum. They have a noticeable film on them that reminds me of a product that I use called T-9. I’m sure it will help for a while, but it’s impossible to know how they will hold up after years of use. While the auger does support counter-clockwise, we’re cautioned to use that sparingly, as it goes against the coils’ windings. Obviously, the ability to navigate a 90 degree bend requires more of a radius with each progressively larger diameter cable. This is where the pipe diameter comes in, which dictates the inside area. With the ½” cable the first 2 inches or so are inflexible, to give you an idea. If you have a fixed attachment on the cable it’s even worse. Both ends have the coupling compression fitted inside the coil windings. Another point they make in the instructions is that we are to attempt to clean the retracting cable as it’s being brought back into the drum.
