Milwaukee® Grows Their Interchangeable, Powered Auger System

MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Tool continues to build on their interchangeable powered auger system promise: One System for Toilets, Urinals, and Floor Traps, by adding Sinks, Tubs, and Showers, with the new TRAPSNAKE™ 25’ Auger w/ CABLE DRIVE™. Compatible with the M12™ TRAPSNAKE™ driver, this latest addition to the Porcelain Auger System is the most versatile auger, featuring CABLE DRIVE™ automatic feed and retract to quickly reach and remove blockages in sink, bathtub, and shower drain lines.

“We introduced the TRAPSNAKE™ system in 2017, and it showcased a number of industry firsts including a telescoping cable lock, a fixed rubber boot to protect porcelain fixtures, and replaceable cables to increase longevity of the tools,” said Kathleen Keegan, Senior Product Manager. “We saw an opportunity to expand this system by adding another solution to further cement Milwaukee as a brand for drain cleaning and service professionals. With its inline, compact design, our TRAPSNAKE™ 25’ Auger w/ CABLE DRIVE™ gives users the first line of defense to access tight, confined spaces such as sinks, bathtubs, and showers.”

The auger’s in-line design allows for easy access to drain lines through the fixture. Equipped with CABLE DRIVE™, the auger automatically feeds and retracts the cable to quickly navigate tight traps to reach and remove blockages. Cable lock holds the cable in place to give maximum control while working to clear the clog.

As part of Milwaukee’s interchangeable, powered auger system, the TRAPSNAKE™ 25’ Auger w/ CABLE DRIVE™ is compatible with the M12™ TRAPSNAKE™ Driver. This driver is also compatible with their 6’ toilet and 4’ urinal augers and delivers the power and speed to work through tough clogs in tight traps. It is the first powered unit with optimized electronics that protects delicate porcelain fixtures and allows the user to feel when engaged with a blockage.

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