Default Milwaukee sectional

Anyone see the new Milwaukee 18v sectional machine? Just saw a picture on Instagram from the nps19 show.

Looks like it would be good for those roof jobs or when you're far from a plug.

Looks like could definitely be handy to have, but I don’t think it will handle a large root masses.

It's surprising what they're able to get out of 18v motors these days but I think you're right. I would probably only use it on known lines or branch line clogs. I guess it depends on the specs. I'll wait for more information to come out.

What I've really wanted is a heavier duty version of the Ridgid flex shaft. One that can go 100 feet.

Iíve used the Milwaukee fuel hole hog to mix cement in a pinch before.

It looks bigger than the K-1500. Way too cumbersome for a basement in a house (I think).

Running on batteries is a nice feature but you'll be spending to buy a bunch of them and buy some more when they wear out. Spend your evenings recharging them and forgetting them at your house of shop.

That's a humongous handle!

Anyone see in the first 2 videos an accident waiting to happen? They have a guest necklace tag dangling over the spinning cable.

A little choking action!


Then is it me it looks like it has a hard time cutting the zip ties? Seems the cutter stalls on impact. Gotta wait till full speed and shove it? Wouldn't it get tangled if there's a root ball and wipes?
