Product Overview


The M12 Drain Snake (Bare Tool) is the ultimate service plumbing solution for tough jobs through 2-1/2 in. drain lines. Weighing only 10 lbs., it's the lightest professional drain cleaner on the market. Its unique, hybrid design provides the benefits of both handheld and floor based drain cleaners in one machine. The tool's fixed drum shield with flat base protects users and fixtures while providing maximum tool support for easy cable feed. Plumbers, facility maintenance, and property managers will eliminate setup time when they switch from their corded drain cleaning machines to the M12 Drain Snake.
Powered by a REDLITHIUM battery pack (sold separately), this unit is capable of delivering more work per charge and more work over pack life than the competitors. REDLINK Intelligence provides optimized performance and overload protection against abusive situations.

Cordless Wonder
I'm not one for writing reviews but this tool is great. Only had it a week, my coworkers and I have used it on 8 clogged drains and it did fail once. Everyone who has use it claim that they are going to get one. It's a nice addition to my collection of cordless Milwaukee tools.

Don't buy it. This is a waste of time & money. You would think that the snake would feed out of this thing automatically. No! You have to push and retract the snake manually. What good is that for an electric snake? You might as well buy an ordinary snake and attach it to a drill & save your money. I'm returning this one.
