Versatility for Sink Lines to Sewer Lines! Milwaukee® Unveils the Lightest, Most Portable Sectional Machine for 5/8” and 7/8” Cable

MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Tool is proud to unveil the most portable and powerful sectional machine for 5/8” and 7/8” cable. The M18 FUEL™ Sectional Machine for 5/8” & 7/8” Cable delivers the power to clear heavy roots up to 150 ft out, providing over 50% more power than corded even at its maximum capacity. 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. It also includes a carry strap for hands-free transportation onto rooftop jobs.

The new M18 FUEL™* Sectional Machine for 5/8” & 7/8” Cable combines three Milwaukee®-exclusive innovations - the POWERSTATE™ brushless motor, and REDLINK PLUS™ intelligence, and REDLITHIUM™ battery pack.

The POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor provides more clearing power for the toughest root clogs. Whether the clog is only 15’ down the line or 150’ out, users can be confident they have the power they need to get the job done. This machine’s power exceeds the most popular corded options on the market and remains consistent throughout the job, allowing users to maintain power when they hit clogs rather than experiencing heavy bog-down. Additionally, most sectionals for 5/8” and 7/8” cable available today are only rated to clear up to 4” lines; this new M18 FUEL™ Sectional Machine is capable of clearing up to 6” 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. 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.

This machine also features ONE-KEY™** so it can be wirelessly tracked, managed, and secured.

The new M18 FUEL™ Sectional Machine for 5/8” & 7/8” Cable is fully compatible with the entire M18™ line, now offering more than 200 power tool products.
