Milwaukee® M18™ Drum Machine Has More Power Than Corded Units

MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Tool continues to expand their sewer and drain maintenance solutions with the introduction of the M18™ Drum Machine for 3/8”-½" Cables. With the ability to tackle tough clogs such as grease, scale, and buildup, the drum machine allows drain cleaning professionals to clear drains confidently with instant setup, all-day run-time and easier transportation.

Providing more power than corded machines for maximum performance under load, the M18™ Drum Machine delivers up to 40% more torque at max capacity in 1-½"-4” drain lines and can clear up to 100’ with 3/8” cable and up to 75’ with ½" cable. The drum machine can clear clogs in sinks, bathtubs, and floor drains, completing a full day of work on a single battery charge*. With cordless convenience, users have the ability to power their machine anywhere without the hassles and trip hazards of extension cords. The user-driven, lightweight design features an enclosed drum that provides protection against the mess during transportation on and off the job and an inner drum helps to prevent cable bind ups.

The Inner Core Drum Cables are made of industrial steel springs, and the solid polymer inner core delivers the best mix of strength and flexibility. The M18™ Drum Machine is compatible with Milwaukee’s CABLE DRIVE™ Assembly. Available as an add-on accessory, this attachment allows users to automatically feed and retract the cable up to 20-feet per minute.

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. Milwaukee offers the only complete lineup of cordless drain cleaning and inspection solutions for fixtures to sewer lateral lines.
