Milwaukee® Adds the Most Compact and Lightweight Reel to their Pipeline Inspection System

MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Tool continues to expand their Modular Pipeline Inspection System, now including the 100’ Flexible Pipeline Inspection Reel. As the first flexible reel added to the system, it is engineered to navigate tight bends and traps, joining the 120’ Mid-Stiff, 200’ Mid-Stiff, 200’ Stiff, and 325’ Stiff reels to provide the size offerings needed to fit any situation. For unmatched system versatility, all reels are powered by the M18™ 500GB Control Hub with One-Key™, designed with modular capabilities for easy swaps between reel sizes. With the industry’s clearest image and easiest inspections, the pipeline inspection system makes it possible to see more in drain lines than ever before.

Providing the best maneuverability in small lines, the 100’ Flexible Pipeline Inspection Reel has a flexible push cable built to navigate tight bends and traps in 1.5” – 4” lines, up to 100 feet. The compact and lightweight design is optimized for high traffic or confined areas and offers unmatched portability for easy storage and transport on and off the jobsite. Compatible with either the carry strap or removable backpack straps for hands-free carrying and best transportation when accessing roofs. The high resolution 25mm 1080p self-leveling HD Milwaukee pipeline inspection camera head captures the industry’s clearest image during live streaming, picture, and video. With the ability to digitally zoom up to 4X and optimize light output inside of pipes, technicians can see more in drain lines than ever before.

Powered by M18™ REDLITHIUM™ batteries, the M18™ 500GB Control Hub powers the reels, stores recordings, and easily swaps between reel sizes delivering unmatched system versatility. Capture, create, and share custom photos and videos from the M18™ Wireless Monitor or directly from a tablet or mobile device for faster sharing of findings. This Milwaukee sewer camera is equipped with ONE-KEY™ Technology*, the industry’s largest Bluetooth® community tracking network. Users can track, manage, and secure the pipeline inspection system from their mobile device, and if ever lost or stolen, ONE-KEY™ provides the ability to prevent tampering with remote lockout capability.
