Milwaukee M12 TrapSnakes 6-foot Toilet Auger Review
The Milwaukee M12 trap snake augers are manufactured by Milwaukee Snake Company. They have been around since 1882. Their products include air snakes, water snakes, and sewer snakes. These augers are made from steel with a chrome finish.
The Milwaukee M12 trap snake augers come in two sizes: 4 feet (1.2 m) and 6 feet (1.8 m).
These are the most popular type of Milwaukee M12 trap snake augers due to their affordability and ease of use. Air snakes are designed to capture small rodents such as mice, rats, gerbils, hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits and other small animals like lizards or birds. There are several brands of air snakes available. Some of them include:
M10, M11, M13, M14, M15, M16, M17
Water snakes are similar to air snakes except they catch larger prey such as fish and frogs.
As their name suggests, sewer snakes are made for clearing blockages in septic tanks, sewers and other drains. These snakes do not have the capacity to hold live animals. They just contain a solid rod that can break up clogs or conduct electricity to break up grease and oil.
These comes in four sizes: 4 feet (1.2 m), 6 feet (1.8 m), 8 feet (2.4 m) and 12 feet (3.7 m).
The 4-foot (1.2 m) size is for rodents such as rats, gerbils, hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits and other small animals like lizards or birds.
The 6-foot (1.8 m) size can handle squirrels, chipmunks, opossums, woodchuck and similar sized animals
The 8-foot (2.4 m) size handles raccoons, armadillos and similar sized animals
The 12-foot (3.7 m) size can handle beavers, wild hogs and similar sized animals
These come with a rechargeable battery pack that provides up to 40 hours of use on a single charge. The battery will allow you to clear clogs from 100 feet of pipe.
These also come equipped with an automatic feeder that loads a new trap as the previous one is fired. These are capable of being linked together, so less manual loading is required.
These also come with bright LEDs to help you see what you’re doing inside the snake.
The automatic trigger means that you don’t have to touch the animal at all. The trapdoor will close automatically and then fire when it detects movement.
