Milwaukee® Introduces TRAPSNAKE™: The First Interchangeable, Powered Porcelain Auger System

M12 Urinal Auger

Milwaukee Tool delivers a game-changing new solution for unclogging toilets, urinals, and floor traps for service plumbers and facility maintenance professionals with the new TRAPSNAKE™ Porcelain Auger System. By offering multiple auger attachments that can be unified on a single power source, TRAPSNAKE™ delivers versatility and capabilities never seen before in a closet auger.

The heart of the system is the M12™ TRAPSNAKE™ Driver. The first powered unit optimized for the challenges of porcelain fixtures, the M12™ TRAPSNAKE™ Driver delivers power and speed to work through tough clogs in tight traps, while protecting the delicate fixture from damage. With optimized electronics that deliver low RPM and low torque, the user is able to feel when engaged with a blockage to retrieve it with control.

“Plumbers and maintenance technicians have always received plenty of service calls for clogged toilets and urinals, but these jobs are becoming more frequent and often a bigger problem with the industry trending towards low-flow fixtures,” said Corey Dickert, Vice President of Product Management for Milwaukee Tool. “With this trend, it is clear there’s a need for a product that is better at navigating tight turns and breaking down clogs that are tougher than ever before.”

Extending from the M12™ TRAPSNAKE™ Driver, users can choose between a 6’ Toilet Auger and 4’ Urinal Auger extension for the work at hand. All TRAPSNAKE™ Auger attachments feature a number of industry firsts including a telescoping cable lock which holds the cable in place for easy telescoping extension, a fixed rubber boot for maximum porcelain protection, and replaceable cables to maximize the longevity of the tool.

“Aside from the fundamental challenges of the job, there’s a number of upgrades needed to improve protection, ease of use, and the durability of these tools,” Said Dickert. “We’re excited to solve these user frustrations with industry-firsts that truly make this system a game-changing solution.”

With the industry’s first cable locking mechanism, all TRAPSNAKE™ Augers hold the cable in place for easy telescoping extension and retraction, allowing users to utilize additional cable when they need to reach beyond the fixture. When the cable becomes unusable, users can simply replace them versus throwing away the entire auger, as they are accustomed to today. This provides users more cost savings over time, more productivity, and increases the overall longevity of their tool.

For professionals that prefer the traditional hand tool method, the system is also available with the TRAPSNAKE™ Auger Handle, which can be interchanged with the M12 TRAPSNAKE™ Driver for maximum versatility.

Milwaukee® is committed to improving productivity for plumbers and maintenance contractors by offering them the ability to perform an entire job on one battery system. The M12™ TRAPSNAKE™ 6’ Toilet Auger and M12™ TRAPSNAKE™ 4’ Urinal Auger are compatible with the entire M12™ System, now offering over 70 cordless Lithium-Ion products – including the recently launched M12™ Drain Snake. The M12™ platform is the largest sub-compact system in the industry, offering innovative portable solutions.
