2 // General Pipe Cleaners Flexi-Rooter 100 drain cleaner

General Pipe Cleaners’ new Flexi-Rooter 100 offers a stronger flexible shaft with the strength to cut through roots in 4-inch lines, yet is flexible enough to negotiate 2-inch lines. An integral variable-speed motor with foot pedal allows for the use of both hands to safely guide the flexible shaft into the line. A two-part cleaning array combines unique ClogChopper cutters with carbide chain cutters for a formidable combination. The shaft spins more than 10 times faster than drum machines. At speeds up to 2,200 rpm, cutters quickly grind up stoppages and scour pipe walls clean. The shaft is safely protected inside a sheath so it’s easy to handle, as there are no spinning drums. Flexi-Rooter 100’s durable metal frame includes 10-inch wheels and a folding handle to facilitate transport to and from jobs. A safety slip clutch helps protects the field-repairable flexible shaft. 800-245-6200;

The PRO hose reel from Vac-Con offers 16 feet of traversing motion across the front of the machine and 180-degree articulation for 69.6-square-feet of working coverage. With 115% more coverage than the standard Vac-Con articulating hose reel, this flexibility allows operators access to manhole and lift station locations without having to park the unit precisely over the job site. A front-mounted camera system and companion ARC visual screen provides 180 degrees of visibility to the driver in the cab with a generous range to park the unit and still have access to the manhole. Adjustable motions allow for any operator to comfortably use the system. The control panel features 4 rotational positions, an 8-inch vertical adjustment and an arm rest at the joystick. The PRO Reel can accommodate up to 850 feet of 1-inch hose. 904-284-4200;
