Maxi-Rooter® - General Pipe Cleaners


Look at the portability that goes with that power and capacity. The Maxi-Rooter rolls on 10″ ball bearing semi- pneumatic wheels and has V-belt stair climbers for easier transport up and down stairs.

A truck loading wheel mounted on the handle is almost like having another person helping you when you lift the machine into a truck. In addition, we’ve made it easy for you to remove the drum if you should want to transport the Maxi-Rooter in two parts.

Another important help to you is a see-through inner drum cage so you can tell how much cable is in the drum. For electrical safety, the foot pedal is air actuated, eliminating electrical contact between pedal and motor. Equally important, a ground fault circuit interrupter senses current leakage and will shut down the machine before an operator suffers an electric shock


  • Clears roots and heavy stoppages in 3” to 10” lines.
  • Holds 125 ft. of 3/4″ and 150 ft. of 5/8″ Flexicore®
  • Inner drum cage prevents cable tangling.
  • Variable speed Power Cable Feed drives or retrieves cable at up to 20 ft./min.
  • Rides on 10″ heavy duty ball bearing semi-pneumatic tires.
  • Includes stair climbers, truck loading wheel, and built-in tool box.
  • Powerful 3/4 hp motor drive cable up to 200 ft. down the line.
  • Flexicore wire rope center cables have unequalled strength yet the right amount of flexibility.
  • Made in U.S.A.

Power Cable Feed

Maxi-Rooter’s power cable feed not only drives the cable into the line but has the pulling power to retract it, even on long, tough runs. Without reversing the cable rotation, you instantly can alter feeding speed to match the resistance in the line. Chew into stoppages as slowly as one inch per minute and retract the cable as quickly as twenty feet per minute.


The Maxi-Rooter has a surprisingly slim 23″ profile that lets you work in some very tight spots. You can get the machine through just about any door you’re likely to run into with room to spare.

Lift Handles

For easy truck loading, tip the Maxi-Rooter on its loading wheel, then lift and slide into truck using the lift handle on front leg of machine.

Convenient Tool Box

A tool box large enough to hold a set of cutting heads and some tools built into the back of the Maxi-Rooter.

Flexicore® Cable

Heavy gauge wire is coiled around 49 strand wire rope and then heat treated. This cable has unequalled strength and the right amount of flexibility. It’s so tough, it has a one year warranty against defect or breakage.
