Milwaukee® Introduces the First Drain Cleaner with a Brushless Motor and CABLE-DRIVE Locking Feed System

By harnessing the power, performance and run time delivered through M18 FUEL technology*, Milwaukee introduces the M18 FUEL Drain Cleaner with CABLE-DRIVE  Locking Feed System.

The new solution represents the next level in performance for handheld machines. Offering corded performance with cordless convenience, it boasts a maximum power to clear 15 m down the line, and features the CABLE-DRIVE™ Locking Feed System – the only automatic feed system that allows users to select and maintain a desired feed speed.

 “When we first made our introduction into the drain cleaning industry with the M12 Drain Cleaner, we set out to identify and solve frequent frustrations plumbers and facility maintenance crews have had with other tools that have dominated the market in years past. The simple cordless setup of the M12 Drain Cleaner freed these users from wrestling with cords, searching for outlets, and gave peace of mind from not having to drag an electric cord across free-standing water – providing them with tremendous productivity to tackle more service calls,” said Bela Berecz, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “Building off the success of this M12 unit, we’re now setting the bar even higher with our revolutionary M18 FUEL technology to put even more power and control into the hands of users who encounter the toughest clogs.

The new M18 FUEL Drain Cleaner with CABLE-DRIVE combines three exclusive innovations - the POWERSTATE brushless motor, REDLINK PLUS intelligence and REDLITHIUM-ION battery pack. The POWERSTATE brushless motor provides equal or more clearing power than corded competitors for jobs through 75mm drain lines, and offers exceptional run time. REDLINK PLUS intelligence ensures maximum performance under load and improves control throughout the entire process. The REDLITHIUM-ION battery pack powers through multiple jobs on a single charge, delivering cordless power, mobility and safety to the drain cleaning industry.

With the only automatic feed system that allows users unparalleled feed speed control, the CABLE-DRIVE locking feed system maintains the selected feed speed, and its twist lock design auto-adjusts to all compatible cable sizes for the best cable grip when feeding and working the clog. A fully enclosed drum ensures the best protection and containment of the mess.

Milwaukee®’s POWERSTATE brushless motor also improves the motor life of the tool by up to 10X*. A combination of no wearable components and superior durability means users will have to service their tool less, translating to a much lower cost of ownership.

The new M18 FUEL Drain Cleaner with CABLE-DRIVE Locking Feed System is fully compatible with the entire M18 line, now offering more than 120 power tool products.

Milwaukee Tool is committed to providing drain cleaning professionals with the most portable and versatile drain cleaning solutions. The company is dedicated to continuing investments in technology to build solutions from the ground-up that provide these users with an easier way to get on and off the job, with less mess, so they can service more calls.

* M18 FUEL is engineered for the most demanding tradesmen in the world. Delivering ultimate performance, all M18 FUEL products feature three Milwaukee®-exclusive innovations—The POWERSTATE brushless motor, REDLITHIUM-ION battery pack and REDLINK PLUS intelligence hardware and software - that deliver extreme power, run time and durability on the jobsite.
