Milwaukee is known for their M12 line of power tools. In fact, they have the largest line of 12V power tools. One great thing about Milwaukee is they are not afraid to design a power tool that is a niche product. Speaking of niche, Milwaukee just created a new product for the plumbers, so sit back and check out our Milwaukee Trapsnake Auger review.
Milwaukee Trapsnake Auger Review – Overview
This new M12 line is designed not only for the plumber but maintenance crews and more. These tools are created to work in toilets (6′ auger), urinals (4′ auger), and floor traps. They are designed to offer protection when working with porcelain.
Milwaukee Trapsnake Auger Review – Features
You can get a couple different versions. You can either power this tool by using an M12 battery or if you decide you need some arm workouts, you can manually power the tool.
On the auger, it features a curved rubber boot which will prevent damage to your porcelain toilet.
The Auger cable is replaceable which will be a welcome to many plumbers in the field.
There is an integrated locking mechanism which holds the cable in place. This makes it easy to use the telescoping extension.
Milwaukee Trapsnake Auger Review – Performance
The auger works great. It’s very easy to set up and get to work. Once you start the cleaning process, it’s only a matter of time before that stubborn drain is unclogged.
Having the power of an M12 battery will not only speed up the job but save you from the manual labor and save your back, arms and shoulders.
One item to note is that even though there is a rubber boot, you still have to be careful using the auger as it can still mark up the toilet when first starting or taking out the auger.
