The Drain-Rooter drain cleaning machine is a real labor-saver on long jobs or working in a cramped area where the weight of the machine could get burdensome. It makes clearing clogged sinks, tubs and laundry drains easier for your rental customers, especially when working in a cramped area where the weight of the machine could get burdensome.

This compact floor model drain cleaner has a unique variable speed foot pedal system that lets the operator vary the speed of the cage allowing both hands to be free to control the cable.

Snake-Oil Classic

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.
