As you know, Milwaukee Tool has the largest 12V line with their M12 line. Well now you can add one more tool to their line up. They just announced the Milwaukee Drain Snake. So now cleaning drain lines should be much easier. The new tool provides benefits of both handheld and floor-mounted drain cleaning machines. With this new drain snake, you can clean drains up to 25′ long.
According to Milwaukee Tool this is the only handheld unit with a fixed drum shield to protect the fixture and user from the spinning drum. With the snake drain weighing 10 lbs., it's one of the lightest 2-1/2” drain snakes on the market. For easier cable feed, users can rest the tool on its flat base, freeing up a hand which is typically used to hold the tool. This makes it great for overhead, below the waist and confined spaces. In addition, the cables’ solid polymer core will not rust.
