What is Flexible-Shaft Technology?

Flexible-shaft technology is the next big thing in our industry. Flexible-shaft machines utilize a swiftly rotating wire coil, much like a speedometer cable. The rod is safely protected inside a sheath so it’s easy to handle – no spinning drums.

Flexible-shaft technology is faster and more thorough than traditional drain cleaners. The flexible rod spins more than 10 times faster than drum machines. At speeds of 2000 RPM or more, the chain cutters quickly grind up stoppages and scour the walls of the pipe. And you can use your camera system to give it pinpoint accuracy.
