JM-1450 - General Pipe Cleaners

The powerful jetter gives you as much pressure as you can get from an electric jet. Clear grease, sand and ice with high-pressure water. It generates 1500 psi at 1.7 gallons per minute, yet only pulls 13 amps. It’s powered by a 1-1/2 hp dual capacitor enclosed motor with an in-line ground fault circuit interrupter.

The JM-1450 features Vibra-pulse® on demand to help the hose slide around tight bends in small lines. This unique feature allows the flow rate to remain the same whether Vibra-pulse is on or off.

The JM-1450 is compact and portable. With an over all height of 34″, the machine fits easily in the limited storage space of a contractor’s truck. Need to be more compact? Simply remove the easily detachable hose reel and the height drops to just 14″. The telescoping handle makes it easier to roll the machine to and from the job site.

A removable 150 ft. capacity hose reel with reel brake and swivel is mounted on a heavy duty frame with two 8” semi-pneumatic tires. Complete with tool box.

Standard safety features include a thermal relief valve to protect the pump from heat damage, along with a back flow check valve and inlet filter. An optional spray wand is available.

Features

  • Clear grease, sand and ice with high pressure water.
  • Compact, portable jet fits into the trunk of a car.
  • Removable 150 ft. hose reel reduces height to 14-1/2″
  • 1500 psi, 1.7 gpm triplex pump with Vibra-pulse®.
  • 1½ hp dual capacitor sealed motor with GFCI pulls only 13 amps.
  • Slide out handle and 8” wheels for easy transport.
  • Optional High Performance hose with stainless steel braid/Teflon core for better cleaning power.
  • Made in U.S.A.

This is what separates General’s Jet-Set from ordinary pressure washers. Vibra-pulse breaks the initial tension between the surface of the hose and the walls of the pipe, thus helping the hose slide around tight bends and propels itself farther down the line. Vibra-pulse increases the cleaning power of electric jets, and is particularly useful in jetting around bends in small drain lines.

A convenient slide-out handle and eight inch wheels make it easy to roll the machine to and from the job.

The hose reel detaches in seconds, to make the jet more compact and portable.

Accessories

Jet Nozzles

Whether you’re up against grease, sand, or ice, there’s a General nozzle that will cut through it. Some are designed for maximum penetrating power, some are designed to pressure wash the pipe walls, and some are designed to go around sharp bends. All of General’s nozzles are made of hardened stainless steel to last longer. See the Nozzle page for more information.

Options

Jet Hose

Tough high pressure jetting hose comes in a variety of lengths and diameters. With the 1/4” ID hose, you can clear 2” through 4” lines up to 150′ away. And the Super-Flex™ 1/8” hose has the flexibility to get through 1-1/2” and 2” lines and bends up to 75′. down the line.

Try the optional High Performance 3/16” hose with Stainless Steel braid and Teflon core for better cleaning power. It has the flexibility to get through 1-1/2” to 3” lines and bends, and is available in 30’, 50’ and 75’ lengths.

Down Head Nozzles

The Down Head Nozzle takes the hose down Tees and around difficult corners. The Down head is available for 1/8″ hose to clear 1-1/2″ to 2″ lines. (Catalog # JNDH-1)

Rotary Nozzles

Make sure you leave the lines crystal clear with General’s rotary nozzles. The JN-RB heavy duty hardened stainless steel rotary nozzles have two 90 degree jets to scour the walls of the pipe, and two 35 degree jets to drive the hose down the line. The less expensive JN-RA hardened steel rotary nozzles have two 45 degree jets for combined thrust and cleaning action.

Spray Wand

Get a spray wand and use your jet for high pressure washing and cleaning applications. Spray wands are made from durable components. The triggers have a light touch, yet can withstand rough usage. The wands are insulated and designed for use with a downstream soap injector. A variety of stainless steel nozzles are available. (Catalog # SWA-1500)

Foot Pedal

The optional Foot Pedal gives you added safety. Water flows when you step on the pedal and stops when you lift your foot. Made of rugged steel components, the Foot Pedal attaches between the outlet of the pump and the inlet of the hose reel. (Catalog # FM-1)
