Electric Eel eCAM Ace pipeline inspection camera
Two new standard features were added to Electric Eel’s Ace inspection camera. A battery cradle installed on the hub of the reel will accept a Milwaukee Tool M18 or equivalent battery (battery not included). This allows for operation in remote locations or anywhere electricity is not available. The Ace camera can run six to seven hours on battery power. Also, 6-inch wheels are now built into the frame for easy transport of the unit. 800-833-1212;  

Milwaukee Tool Cable Drive assembly
Milwaukee Tool’s new accessory, Cable Drive, for the M18 Fuel Switch Pack Sectional Drum System, provides the ability to automatically feed and retract cables through 1 1/4- to 4-inch lines at up to 15 to 20 feet per minute. The assembly quickly attaches to any Switch Pack drum with the mounting plate installed. A twist lock feature allows the Cable Drive to be easily swapped between drums, meaning only one Cable Drive is needed for all the Switch Pack Drums. A ratcheting lever automatically adjusts for Milwaukee 5/16-, 3/8- and 1/2-inch inner core drain cleaning cables and 5/8-inch open wind cables. The assembly is equipped with a Rapid Stop button that releases the steel bearings to provide a quick way to release the cable once a blockage is reached, preventing the cable from binding. 800-729-3878;
