The M18 FUEL™ Sewer Sectional Machine with CABLE-DRIVE™ from Milwaukee Tool is a drain cleaning solution. This cordless machine allows users to clear tough blockages in 2″ to 8″ sewer lateral lines. It also delivers the power to clear roots up to 200′ out, providing full power at the maximum capacity of the machine. In addition, it features a CABLE-DRIVE™ Automatic Feed and Retract which reduces user fatigue by eliminating the need to manually pull back the heavy cable from pipes.
“Since we first introduced our drain cleaning lineup just two years ago, we’ve been able to put an end to years of stagnant product innovation in the drain cleaning industry by delivering solutions that can be instantly set up, minimize the mess, and have the performance needed to clear the toughest clogs quickly. This attention to user needs has led us to offer the only completely portable drain cleaning offering for fixtures and main lines within buildings. Now we’re taking this drain cleaning innovation out to the sewer lateral lines,” said Kathleen Keegan, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “The M18 FUEL Sewer Sectional Machine with CABLE-DRIVE is our first sectional machine solution, delivering on the promises of safety, mobility, and mess containment that users have come to rely on from Milwaukee drain cleaning solutions.”
The new M18 FUEL Sewer Sectional Machine with CABLE-DRIVE combines three Milwaukee-exclusive innovations—the POWERSTATE™ brushless motor, REDLINK PLUS™ intelligence, and REDLITHIUM™ battery pack. The POWERSTATE Brushless Motor provides the clearing power for tough root clogs, REDLINK PLUS Intelligence ensures maximum performance under load, and the REDLITHIUM battery pack powers through multiple jobs on a single charge, delivering easy setup and transport. In addition, the elimination of cords enhances user safety due to trip hazards or cords near standing water.
The CABLE-DRIVE System reduces user fatigue by eliminating the need to manually pull back the heavy cable from pipes. An enclosed cable carrier ensures the best protection and containment of the mess during transportation of the cables, which have a spin speed of 700 RPM. Each of these cable carriers can also be stacked for easier storage. This machine features ONE-KEY™ so it can be wirelessly tracked, managed, and secured.
