Milwaukee has come out with a new M12 Stick Transfer Pump, model 2579, for removing water from trenches, storm drains, water meter boxes, and other such types of difficult-to-access areas.
The new Milwaukee cordless stick pump has a 36-inch submersible aluminum barrel for easier reach.
Milwaukee says that the M12 stick pump eliminates the repetitive strain that’s associated with traditional manual pumps, which also require two hands to use.
The M12 pump can be used with one hand, which frees up users’ second hand to redirect the outlet hose.
Milwaukee says their new HydroPass filter tech maximizes water flow in heavy debris to effortlessly pump up to nine gallons of water per minute (when equipped with an XC 4.0Ah).
The inlet is described as having a 360° filter design to help reduce clogging.
The male-threaded outlet is compatible with standard 3/4″ garden hoses.
With a 15-foot max head height, the transfer pump is said to deliver the power to push water out of pits, basins, and over walls.
The pump features an on/off switch for one-handed operation, as well as a 4-LED battery fuel gauge.
