Milwaukee has launched a new M12 TrapSnake urinal auger, model 3574, which looks to be an update to the original 2574 model that was introduced in 2017.
The new Milwaukee M12 TrapSnake is part of a modular system, allowing users to select between manual and powered drivers and different auger attachments depending on the application.
Milwaukee boasts that the TrapSnake delivers “versatility and capabilities never seen before in a urinal auger.”
The TrapSnake system is designed for clearing clogs in toilers, urinals, floor traps, sinks, bathtubs, and showers.
The auger features a patented cable lock, for holding the cable in place during extension and retraction, and a fixed rubber boot to help prevent porcelain scratches.
This particular configuration, with a 3/8″ x 4′ urinal auger configuration, is recommended for use in drains 1-1/4″ to 2″ wide. Common applications includes clearing out clogged urinals and floor traps.
If you need something different, the TrapSnake 25′ auger has a 1/4″ x 25′ cable for use in sinks, bathtubs, and showers, and the TrapSnake toiler auger has a 1/2″ x 6′ cable for use in toilers and floor traps.
The new TrapSnake looks to have all the same features as the previous model.
The original model also featured a modular driver, cable lock, rubber boot, and replaceable auger cable.
Price: $159 for the kit with charger and 1.5Ah battery
Following is a demo video for the original model. Much of what’s said and shown about that model looks to be carried over to this new one.
