M18 FUEL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Drain Cleaning 5/16 in. Switch Pack Sectional Drum System Kit OMSID: 303171509 Unbelievable Cordless Machine I was fully prepared to be underwhelmed by this cordless sectional drum cleaner from Milwaukee. How could it compare in terms of power and functionality with the 120v drum cleaner I was used to wheeling into place for tough drain cleaning jobs? Well let me say I was blown away by this unit across the board. Right from the get go you notice that Milwaukee thought through how this actually gets used. Gone are the wheels and the large handle found on traditional units and instead the power unit has backpack straps (a nice handle too) and the sectional drum units separate for easy carrying. The whole thing is liquid-tight and so as you're moving this in to and out of the house you're not dripping or rolling tires across your carpets and other living spaces. There's even a nice storage area for your cable heads so everything is contained. When it comes to fire the unit up the foot pedal provides great on-off control and the electric brake means that it stops much quicker than traditional units. That's great if you catch something and the cable starts to whip. The brushless motor provided plenty of power and after about 45 minutes of running the unit to clean out a house's 3" and 4" lines over 50' with a 1/2" cable the battery still read 4 bars. This is awesome as it means you're not thinking about battery life and getting stranded mid-job. And the cordless functionality means you're not worrying about finding an outlet or electrocuting yourself during usage. I'm also super impressed with the ability to quickly swap in different cables, each with their own containment drum. Switching takes seconds and it means this unit can be used for both the big 3" and 4" residential main drains as well as the smaller drains under sinks and in bathrooms. Noise level is a moderate drone and it's below where you'd worry about hearing protection. Who is this for: Everyone from the homeowner who knows they're going to need to call in a plumber from time to time (or splits this across a neighborhood) to the pro who's using it to make money. I think this would be especially great for a building manager or someone who has several rental properties so they can tackle drain cleanouts without the expense of calling in a plumber. Who isn't this for: It would probably be hard to justify the cost of this setup for someone who doesn't plan to use it several times. Though at the emergency cost of a plumber visit adds up quickly. Other Thoughts: I struggled to come up with improvements. I think the only two things that I came up with were 1) it would be nice to have markings on the cable to indicate how much has been spooled out and 2) a cap over the cable end would be a nice touch that helped prevent scuffing walls as you carry it around (or damaging anything it bumps into in the truck.) Conclusion: While not for everyone, if you're someone who somewhat regularly needs to clean out drains this tool has so many great innovations packed into a durable package that I think this is an awesome new option.

`Professional Tool, With a ton of POWER !!!! This is a super powerful tool that anyone from beginner to pro will like to use. Quickly becoming your main go to tool for drain clogs after the plunger. It is a completely self contained unit that can be easily carried to your job with the attached backpack straps. Once you put it down, slide out the stabilizer bar and connect the foot petal control. (I now leave mine connected) Open your access cover and your ready to go. will handle 1-1/4 - 4 inch drains easily Spins at 250 PM easily tearing thru all clogs yet not so fast that it cuts thru pipes like some of the pro machines, this machine would easily be handled by a novice and not have to worry about damaging pipes, and with 75 feet of cable you can clear most sewer lines right out to the street. You can also buy additional drums and go even farther. Has a forward/reverse switch which makes putting out snake easy and winding up is easy as well, thee snake is also coated to prevent rust, When I rewind mine I wrap a rag around the cable to wipe it down. It will accept other brand cables as well so if you already have a long snake you can use it with this one,, the foot petal also makes it easy yo use keeping both hands free for the snake, Great for novice or pro and though it is expensive for a homeowner if you think about it, it pays for itself after 4 or 5 uses compared to calling a sewer service

Milwaukee has come out with a new line of cordless drain cleaning tools. The M18 Fuel 5/16 inch Switch Pack Sectional Drum System is perfect for cleaning and removing clogs in 1-1/4 inch to 4 inch drain lines. I like the modular drum design, which allows switching out multiple packs for different size lines. After testing the Milwaukee Switch Pack Sectional Drum on several different size drain lines, I am very pleased with its features and performance. The Milwaukee Switch Pack Sectional Drum System comes with two major pieces; a motor and controller section, and a drum section. It includes 75 feet of 5/16 inch steel cable which spins at a speed of 250 rpm. The motor is a brushless design which provides superior durability and run times over brushed motor designs. It also includes a 5 amp-hour battery, charger, and electronic pedal switch. The motor section includes an integral drum brake, padded backpack for transport, and pull-out support stand to prevent the unit from tipping over. Setup of the Switch Pack Sectional Drum System is quick and easy to use. The tools is quite heavy and is designed to be transported in two pieces. It’s also an expensive tool, and is best suited for the professional contractor. It comes with a 5-year Tool Warranty and 2-year warranty on the cable.

      I have an old house built in the 60's with cast iron pipes and am constantly have problems with my drains getting clogged. The last time I had a plumber come out I got completely ripped off and said enough was enough. My kitchen sink had backed up and was hardly draining at all. This auger set comes with an 18V rechargeable battery, charging station, the backpack unit, and a self contained removable drum with the snake inside. This makes it so if you want to purchase other drums with different diameter snakes you can easily swap out the whole drum unit without having to remove the snake line itself from the drum. After the battery charges the unit is basically ready to go. The foot pedal connector is removable from the unit. Another nice feature is that the backpack straps have buttons that secure them out of the way when the unit is not in use. After removing my traps and CPVC piping I started snaking. It took a few hours for the whole operation but when I retrieved the snake, the was a big clump of hair stuck to part of the line. My sink is now working great again. This auger worked great, saved me the time for waiting for a plumber to be able to get out to my house (which can take a few days sometimes), and will pay for itself with one more use. The unit is heavy, but portable and easy to use. It was powerful enough to get around bends that I couldn't get around with a manual auger. If you have seen this done by a pro before and have an intermediate level of DIY experience this auger is fantastic. It will save you time and money in the long run. Make sure to use gloves and go slow and be very patient. I can't recommend this auger enough if you have occasional plumbing issues.
