With an August launch date, Milwaukee Tool will grow its MX FUEL line to include a new solution that simplifies sewer calls for sewer and drain maintenance professionals – the MX FUEL Sewer Drum Machine with POWERTREDZ.
Part of the new MX FUEL Equipment System, this machine is built with POWERTREDZ Lift Assist technology which makes it easier for one person to transport the machine up and down stairs, as well as in and out of service vans. In addition, the machine has the power to clear roots 200 ft out while containing the mess with a fully enclosed drum.
“Imagine the strain of hauling a 200 lb. sewer machine up an entire flight of stairs or pulling it up into a van. Unfortunately, this is a daily situation for many professionals on sewer calls – and in order to avoid throwing out their backs (or worse) they’ll often have to bring an extra person just to help with transportation of the machine,” said Kathleen Keegan, product manager for Milwaukee Tool. “The MX FUEL Sewer Drum Machine is the first solution that allows for one-person transportation of these heavy sewer lateral machines through the implementation of our POWERTREDZ Lift Assist technology, reducing the strain of lifting a 200 lb. machine and improving overall productivity and safety for users.”
While mobility is one of the largest frustrations with these jobs, every aspect of the MX FUEL Sewer Drum Machine is designed around increasing productivity from the moment the user arrives on-site, until the job is complete and the machine is loaded back into the van.
The POWERSTATE Brushless Motor provides full power at the maximum capacity of the machine, allowing users to clear roots up to 200 ft out in 3- to 8-in. sewer lateral lines. REDLINK PLUS Intelligence improves control with an integrated drum brake, and the MX FUEL REDLITHIUM battery pack powers through multiple jobs on a single charge, delivering the easiest setup and transport. In addition, the elimination of extension cords enhances user safety due to trip hazards or cords near standing water.
The CABLE DRIVE Automatic Feed and Retract reduces user fatigue by eliminating the need to manually pull back the heavy cable from pipes. The RAPID STOP button quickly releases the CABLE DRIVE bearings to help prevent the cable from binding. The fully enclosed drum eliminates contact between the user and the spinning drum, and contains the mess coming back through the pipe.
As an added benefit, ONE-KEY provides the ability to track the machine with community tracking and alerts, complete inventory management, and industry leading smart-equipment technology to secure the user’s investment.
