General Pipe Cleaners
The Easy Rooter from General Pipe Cleaners is now easier to use. The redesigned frame features a built-in brake that holds the machine securely on the job or in a customer's car going to and from the job. Capable of clearing 3- to 10-inch drain lines clogged with roots and other severe stoppages, the Easy Rooter cage holds 100 feet of 3/4-inch or 5/8-inch Flexicore cable. Other features include a powder-coated square-tube steel frame with special roll bars to protect the motor; roller bearings in the zinc-plated steel cage for longer life and greater motor efficiency; 10-inch ball bearing wheels; a zinc-plated folding handle that takes less room in the customer's car trunk; and a 1/3-hp motor with capacitor, thermal overload protection and reverse switch. An air actuated foot pedal, ground fault circuit interrupter and safety slip clutch are all standard safety features.

The CT is also available with a 2-way auto cable feed that keeps hands off rotating cable as it advances and retrieves cable with the push of a lever.

MTA Distributors offers TEC-Chem LLC's Drain Clean Enzymatic one gallon BX/4.
