Default Milwaukee drain cleanin

Our shop is getting a demo and seem pretty hung up on buying this new milwakee cordless eel ( the bigger one 2-8 pipes)
Im not quite sold on milwaukee drain cleaning products, their new to the market, its all plastic.
I told them id rather demo the ridgid 5208.
Any one run this milwaukee eel yet any thoughts?

Sounds to me like you need to take a dump twice a day in the shop toilet and use wet wipes each time. Then when they show up you can try it on a real clog.


Eat your wheaties!!!!

I thought it's an interesting design but makes you dependent on a battery system and is really big. However that auto retrieve is genius. I really think Milwaukee is going to the company to take over the drain cleaning world in the near future.
