D-25 Handy™ - General Pipe Cleaners

Redesigned D-25 Handy Hand-Held Drain Cleaner
With Tough New Container & Rugged New Chuck

The redesigned D-25 Handy hand-held drain cleaner now sports a durable new plastic container and a rugged new Quick-Grip™ chuck for maximum performance, flexibility, and reliability.

Designed to take the toughest field abuse, General’s sturdy new plastic container has been drop tested from 8 feet – fully loaded – without damage. That’s more than twice the height of a standard test.


  • Turn by hand or remove handle and attach to a drill.
  • Patented Quick-Grip™ chuck tightens firmly on cable with just a quarter turn.
  • Durable container with comfortable turning sleeve.
  • Holds up to 50 ft. of 1/4″ or 5/16″ cables.
  • Made in U.S.A.

The new Quick-Grip™ chuck tightens firmly on the cable with just a quarter turn. Three chuck jaws securely hold 1/4″, 5/16″ and 3/8″ Flexicore® cable for a wide range of small-line jobs.

Operate the D-25 Handy as a hand tool – or a power tool! Simply remove the turning handle and attach a 3/8″ or 1/2″ electric drill for extra muscle on tough clogs. With a capacity of 50 ft. of 1/4″ or 5/16″, and up to 35 ft. of 3/8″ Flexicore® cable, the D-25 Handy easily unstops sink, shower, toilet, and laundry drain lines from 1-1/4″ to 3″ in diameter.

Flexicore cables come with a regular head or a down head to maneuver the cable though tight bends. Flexicore® wire rope center cables are coiled tightly over a core of aircraft-type wire rope – then heat-treated – giving the cables outstanding strength without sacrificing flexibility.


Attach to any drill – Take off the turning handle and attach to any 3/8″ or 1/2″ drill.


Snake-Oil Plus

Snake-Oil Plus™ preserves and protects your sewer cables against rust and corrosion. It’s better than common lubricants because its special rust inhibitor cuts through moisture and replaces it with a rust-resistant coating. You’ll significantly extend the life of your cables and your sewer machine, including the drum, bearings, and power cable feed rollers. In addition, Snake Oil includes a deodorizer that gives your equipment a fresh, clean smell. Available in quarts (Cat # SOQ-S) or gallons (Cat # SOG-S).
