General Pipe Cleaners Power Feed Floor Machine, 100'x5/8" & 50'x5/8" Cables & Cutter Set
The Maxi-Rooter combines root cutting power and big capacity in a surprisingly portable machine. A heavy-duty 3/4 hp motor with capacitor start and over-load protection drives a drum that can hold 125 ft. of 3/4" cable or 150 ft. of 5/8" cable. The frame is a tough aluminum alloy. Look at the portability that goes with that power and capacity. The Maxi-Rooter rolls on 10" ball-bearing semi-pneumatic wheels and has V-belt stair climbers for easier transport up and down stairs. A truck loading wheel mounted on the handle is almost like having another person helping you when you lift the machine into a truck. In addition, we've made it easy for you to remove the drum if you should want to transport the Maxi-Rooter in two parts. Maxi-Rooter's power cable feed not only drives the cable into the line but has the pulling power to retract it, even on long, tough runs. Without reversing the cable rotation, you instantly can alter feeding speed to match the resistance in the line. Chew into stoppages as slowly as one inch per minute and retract the cable as quickly as twenty feet per minute.The Maxi-Rooter has a surprisingly slim 23" profile that lets you work in some very tight spots. You can get the machine through just about any door you're likely to run into, with room to spare. Another important help to you is a see-through inner drum cage so you can tell how much cable is in the drum. For electrical safety, the foot pedal is air actuated, eliminating electrical contact between pedal and motor. Equally important, a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter senses current leakage and will shut down the machine before an operator suffers an electric shock.
