As you can see in the image above, the new trapsnake auger is a standalone unit with a drum that houses a 25 foot auger cable. This auger can be powered by hand with the flip out tab handle in the rear of the drum or by motor when paired with the M12 Trapsnake driver. Milwaukee designed this new trapsnake 25′ auger with cable drive for removing blockages in sinks, bathtubs, and shower drains.
When a user presses on the front grip lever, it activates the auto feeding and retracting of the cable. Milwaukee markets this as “Cable Drive.” The cable lock holds the cable in place which is said to give the user maximum control while they work to clear the clog.
I do like that this auger is both manual powered and can be motor powered with the M12 Trapsnake driver and the auger cable can be replaced to extend the life of the tool.
