New M12™ AIRSNAKE™ Drain Clearing Air Gun is the First Machine to Use Powered Air to Clear Through Drain Covers & Traps

MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Tool announces a new-to-world solution that will provide the easiest way for drain cleaning professionals to clear grease clogs, slow drains, and other non-retrieval-type clogs. The M12™ AIRSNAKE™ Drain Clearing Air Gun is the only cordless solution on the market that uses compressed air to flush away clogs and build up. Capable of instantly reaching clogs 50’ out, the new tool is the ideal first line of defense to clear pipe walls without the hassle of removing drain covers and traps.

            “One of the most time-consuming parts of the drain cleaning process is the preparation to start the job, which often includes the tedious step of disassembling the fixture to access the clog,” said Jacqueline Beierle, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “The M12™ AIRSNAKE™ gives users the ability to clear a clog without disassembling a trap or struggling through tight bends with a cable, providing a new level of productivity to drain cleaning professionals.”

            The M12™ AIRSNAKE™ uses an onboard compressor  to provide a burst of air with just the pull of the trigger that can maintain power past vent stacks and tees to reach clogs up to 50’ out instantly. It comes equipped with attachments optimized for sinks, toilets, and floor drains ranging from 1”- 4” and a 10” extension allowing users to work in up to 20” of water. A variable pressure dial gives users the ability to select the right amount of powered air for the most delicate pipe systems.

The REDLITHIUM™ battery pack powers through multiple jobs on a single charge, delivering cordless power, mobility, and safety to the drain cleaning industry. The new M12™ AIRSNAKE™ Drain Clearing Air Gun is compatible with the M12™ cordless system, now offering more than 80+ power tool products.

Milwaukee Tool is committed to providing drain cleaning professionals with the most portable and versatile drain cleaning solutions. The company is dedicated to continuing investments in technology to build solutions from the ground-up that provide these users with an easier way to get on and off the job, with less mess, so they can service more calls. By the end of 2017, Milwaukee will offer the only completely portable drain cleaning lineup for drains within buildings, as well as a premium line of corrosion-resistant cables.
