General Pipe Cleaners' Rodrunner Sectional Drain Cleaner


The Rodrunner® sectional drain cleaner from General Pipe Cleaners offers great features contractors like – light weight, high speed cable rotation, and short quick-coupling cables. 
 
Best of all, General’s versatile machine can handle the toughest clogs in 3”-10” lines – as far as 200 feet away. And it can be used in almost any location!
 
In tight spots, Rodrunner can be placed close to the drain opening. The guide hose safely contains cable to prevent damage to people and property. 
 
On jobs with working room, save your back! Simply slide the cable into the chuck – and lock the jaws into place. Then walk Rodrunner, “lawn-mover” fashion, towards the drain – one cable section at a time. 
 
A heavy-duty 3/4 hp motor with capacitor and overload protection spins the cable at 700 rpm – the ideal speed for self-feeding cables into lines and protecting against sudden torque build-ups. For additional safety, Rodrunner includes an adjustable slip clutch. 
 
Sectional cables snap together in seconds – and disassemble quickly with a coupling wrench or coupling key. The open cable coils automatically screw into lines, helping clear stubborn stoppages with less effort. 
 
Cables are also available in a variety of lengths and connectors for General and competing brands. With the recently developed “G” connector, no torque is put on the locking pin when running the machine in reverse, making it a more durable coupling.
