Drain cleaning machines offering portability and power are highly sought after by cleaners looking to clear 1 1/4- to 6-inch drainlines. The M18 FUEL Sectional Machine for 5/8- and 7/8-inch cable from Milwaukee Tool is designed to hit those marks, delivering the power to clear heavy roots up to 150 feet out.

“As the lightest weight and most compact machine in its class, this sectional machine can seamlessly transition between outdoor use and the tightest indoor applications,” according to a spokesperson from Milwaukee Tool. The unit also includes a carry strap for hands-free transportation onto rooftop jobs.

The M18 FUEL Sectional Machine for 5/8- and 7/8-inch cable combines three Milwaukee-branded innovations: a POWERSTATE brushless motor, REDLINK PLUS intelligence and a REDLITHIUM battery pack. The POWERSTATE brushless motor provides a high level of clearing power for tough root clogs. Whether the clog is only 15 feet down the line or 150 feet out, users can be confident they have the power they need to get the job done.

“This machine’s power exceeds many corded options, and remains consistent throughout the job, allowing users to maintain power when they hit clogs rather than experiencing heavy bog-down,” according to Milwaukee Tool. Additionally, most sectional machines for 5/8- and 7/8-inch cable available are only rated to clear up to 4-inch lines, while the M18 FUEL Sectional Machine is capable of clearing up to 6-inch lines.

REDLINK PLUS Intelligence enables full-circle communication between the tool and battery, ensuring maximum performance under load. When these motor and intelligence technologies are combined with an M18 REDLITHIUM HIGH OUTPUT 12.0 battery, this sectional machine tackles multiple jobs on one charge, regularly completing a full day’s work without the need to stop to recharge or swap batteries. “In addition, the elimination of cords means users won’t have to search for outlets or extension cords and enhances safety due to the reduction of trip hazards or cords near standing water,” according to Milwaukee Tool.

This machine also features ONE-KEY inventory management capability so it can be wirelessly tracked, managed and secured. The unit is fully compatible with the entire M18 battery-powered line, offering more than 200 power tool products. 800-729-3878;
