Easy Rooter® Job Tested Tough
The Easy Rooter is a tough, easy-to-use machine. It has a rugged powder coated steel frame with special “roll bars” to protect the motor and heavy-duty roller bearings in the cage for longer life and greater motor efficiency on long runs. The large cage holds 100 feet of 3/4″ or 5/8″ Flexicore® cable to clear tree roots and other difficult obstructions in 3” to 10” drain lines.
The patented Quick-Grip™ chuck secures the cable during operation. With a just a quarter turn, the chuck tightens firmly on the cable to secure it while the Easy Rooter drives the cable into the line. It can be released just as quickly to pull more cable from the cage. It’s faster and easier to use than a thumb screw.
The Easy Rooter comes with a rugged cage cover to protect customers, surroundings, and equipment from dripping cables and water spray from the spinning cage. The durable, heavy-duty, poly canvas cover fits snuggly around the cage to keep your customers clean and dry, yet it can be easily removed for cable inspection or cleaning between rentals. Replacement cage covers are available separately (Cat # ER-CV).
Power is supplied by a 1/3 hp capacitor motor with thermal overload protection. A momentary contact reverse switch protects the cable by preventing the operator from running the machine in reverse for more than a few seconds at a time.
Standard safety features include an air actuated foot pedal, ground fault circuit interrupter, safety slip clutch, and instructional video in English, French, and Spanish.

A great way to extend the life of drain cleaning tools & equipment
Snake-Oil Classic™ preserves and protects 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 sewer machine, including the drum, bearings and power cable feed rollers. Snake Oil Classic also includes a deodorizer to give equipment a fresh, clean smell. Available in quarts or gallons.
General Pipe Cleaners’ Quick-Fix™ lets you quickly repair broken drain snakes in the field. The unique Quick-Fix lets you continue working and finish the job without having to go back to your shop to repair or replace a broken cable. The Quick-Fix is available in 1/2”, 9/16”, 5/8”, and 3/4” sizes with female or male connectors.
The specially designed spring with a pre-welded female connecter is easy to attach in the field. Prepare your broken snake by cutting off the damaged or kinked end of the cable with bolt cutters or a hack saw. Then simply thread the Quick-Fix over the broken snake. No welder is required! All you need are vice-grips or a pair of pliers. Once it’s on, the Quick-Fix holds on so tightly that it simply cannot be removed, even if you wanted to.
Rip through tough stoppages with the unique ClogChopper® multi-function cutting tools. Six self-sharpening blades dig into encrusted debris and root masses, easily grinding up stoppages, scale, and crystallized urine, without risking pipe damage.
The spherical design maneuvers around tight bends and traps, thoroughly and safely cleaning metal, plastic, and clay pipes. As it spins it also self-sharpens as it scrapes along the pipe walls. It’s excellent for clearing stacks, downspouts, mains, as well as for drain lining jobs.
