I-95® - General Pipe Cleaners

Here’s a sectional cable machine that drives 7/8″ and 5/8″ sections – or even 5/16″ cables for small drain work. You can switch from 7/8″ to 5/8″ and back by repositioning the chuck cone. No adapter required. Attach a small drum to the back of the machine to drive smaller cables. The I-95 gives you more than versatility. It gives you power and convenience. The motor is a 1/3 hp capacitor type, so it delivers plenty of torque to the cables. Yet, as soon as you lift the drive handle, the cable stops rotating, so there’s no additional torque build up. You also use the drive handle to carry the machine. And when the I-95 is in position on the job, its four point base gives it rock-solid stability. A cutter holder is attached to the back so your cutting heads are always with the machine. A ground fault circuit interrupter is standard equipment.

Features

  • It’s three machines in one.
  • Clears 1-1/4″ through 4″ drain lines.
  • Drives both 5/8″ and 7/8″ sectional cables up to 150 ft. down the line.
  • Change cables in seconds—no tools or adapters required.
  • Small drum holds 25 ft. of 5/16″ Flexicore cable to clear 1-1/4” to 2” lines.
  • 1/3 hp motor.
  • Made in U.S.A.

 

Stability and Durability

The I-95 has a wide four-point base for greater stability. Its interlocking tubular construction also gives it excellent durability. A ground fault circuit interrupter is standard equipment.

 

Universal Jaws

Jaws handle both 7/8″ cables or 5/8″ cables. No adaptor required.

 

Portable

The drive handle doubles as a carrying handle and the machine is compact and light enough to carry up to the roof.

Options

Cables

Standard cable sections for the I-95 and Root 66 are open-wound hollow cables with R-Connectors (Compatible with Ridgid®). They are available in 5/8” x 7-1/2 ft. sections (Cat # 7.5R8) to clear 2” and 3” lines up to 125 ft. long, or 7/8” x 15 ft. sections (Cat # 15R10) to clear 3” and 4” lines up to 150 ft. long. They snap together in a second and are taken apart quickly with a coupling key.

Optional Proflex sectional cables (Cat # 15R10-P, shown below) sport an inner spring.  It gives the cable greater strength to resist kinking and to transfer extra torque down the cable for additional cutting power.

Smaller 5/16” Flexicore® cables (Cat # 25HE1-A) can be used with an optional drum to clear clogged sink lines and other small 1-1/4” to 2” drain lines.

 

ClogChopper® Cutters

Rip through tough stoppages with the unique ClogChopper multi-function cutting tools (Cat # R-2-1/2CG, shown below). 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.

Accessories

Accessories include cable carriers, drums for small drain work, a rear guide hose, and a toolbox (standard on 7/8” cable units).
