Milwaukee M18 FUEL Compact Sectional Machines


Milwaukee M18 FUEL Compact Sectional Machine

The Milwaukee M18 FUEL compact sewer machine was designed to meet the needs of the city’s growing population. They were manufactured from 1894 until 1936. There are three models: the first model was called “M” (for medium) and had a capacity of 100 cubic feet per minute; the second model was called “F” (for full) and had a capacity of 200 cubic feet per minute; the third model was called “S” (for special) and had a capacity of 300 cubic feet per minute.

In addition to its use as a sewer disposal system, they could also be used as sanitary sewers. In some cases, they were installed in private homes or businesses to eliminate unsanitary conditions in these areas. They could even be connected into existing water mains for distribution throughout the city.
