The Easy Rooter from General Pipe Cleaners features a redesigned frame with a built-in brake that holds the machine securely on the job or in a customer's car going to and from the jobsite. The Easy Rooter is capable of clearing 3- to 10-inch drain lines clogged with roots and other severe stoppages. The cage holds 100 feet of ¾- or 5/8-inch Flexicore cable.
“The Easy Rooter is a popular drain-cleaning machine in the rental industry due to the durability of the product and specifically the cable,” says Marty Silverman, vice president for General Pipe Cleaners. “The cable does all of the work. It's made of heavy-gauge wire coiled tightly around a 49-strand aircraft-type wire rope and is heat treated.”
Other features include roller bearings in the zinc-plated steel cage for longer life and greater motor efficiency, 10-inch ball bearing wheels, and a 1/3-hp motor with capacitor, thermal overload protection and reverse switch. The folding handle and 10-inch heavy-duty wheels make it easier to get to and from the job. Roll bars protect the motor as the machine is lifted in and out of the trunk of a car. An air-actuated foot pedal, ground fault circuit interrupter and safety slip clutch are all standard safety features. The Easy Rooter includes an instructional DVD in three languages: English, Spanish and French.
