Product Overview


The M12 Drain Snake is the ultimate service plumbing solution for clearing tough clogs in drain lines up to 2-1/2 in. 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.

I purchased this to clean the kitchen drain and had it done in less than 5 minutes. It is easy to use has a comfortable grip and the light works great. This is a must have if you own a house or clean drains. I liked that it came with a bucket to store it in and it has room to store other tools or supplies you might need if used at another location.

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.

Back to the drawing board with this one
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.
