Drain Cleaner Can Boost Productivity


6/29/2018

With the versatility to handle 1-1/4” to 4” drain lines, General Pipe Cleaners' Root 66 is three machines in one.

Designed to clear practically any inside or rooftop drain, the Root 66 sectional cable power drain cleaner uses 5/8" or 7/8" sections interchangeably. There's no need for adapters or tools to switch from one cable size to the other. 

Need to clear sinks and other small drain lines? Get the optional drum with smaller 1/4", 5/16” or 3/8” Flexicore cables. Just slide onto the back of Root 66, and you’re ready to go.

A General exclusive, optional 7/8" Proflex sectional cables (15R10-P) sport an inner spring. It gives the cable greater strength to transfer extra torque down the line for additional cutting power.

Operating Root 66 is easy, too. Depress the drive handle for plenty of cable torque from the 1/2 hp capacitor motor. Release the drive handle and the cable immediately stops rotating – for no additional torque build-up. A wide, four-point base adds greater stability, and an optional dolly offers easy transport over long distances.

Other accessories include cable carriers, the optional drum for small drain work, and a toolbox. Standard equipment includes a ground fault circuit interrupter, double palm leather gloves, rear guide hose, and General’s tradition of quality, performance and reliability.
