Mini-Rooter XP® Extra Portability and Performance
The Mini-Rooter XP gives you extra portability because 8″ semi- pneumatic wheels let you keep the weight on the ground. The handle folds down to save space and locks to use as an additional lifting handle. A roll bar protects the 1/3 hp motor when going up or down stairs. And the power cord and foot pedal can be stowed away on convenient cord wraps.
The Mini-Rooter XP drain machine gives you extra performance and value, enabling you to clear clogged drain lines from 1-1/4″ to 4″ in diameter with just one machine. The variable speed Power Cable Feed makes a lot of tough jobs go much easier. It feeds or retrieves the cable at up to 16 feet per minute.
The cage easily holds 75 ft of 3/8″ cable and 50 ft. of 1/2″ cable and features a free floating inner drum with an integral distributor tube to help prevent cable tangling. By switching to the optional J-Drum you can handle smaller drain lines. The drum is a snap to remove, taking less than a minute.

Power Cable Feed
A variable speed power cable feed attachment makes feeding and retrieving the cable much easier. It quickly adjusts between 3/8″ and 1/2″ cables without the need for tools or additional parts. It makes a lot of tough jobs go much easier.
Even with the power cable feed, the drum is a snap to remove, taking less than a minute. Of course, the XP comes with an air foot pedal and ground fault circuit interrupter for safety, and General’s patented Flexicore wire rope center cable for durability.
The handle is tall enough to make it easy to move the machine to the job, yet it can be quickly folded to take up less room in the vehicle.
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.
Safety Slip Clutch
Reduces chance of cable tangling or injury to the operator. Allows V-belt to slip through pulley until torque is reduced.
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.

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.
Snake-Oil Classic™ SDS – Material Safety Data Sheet
General Pipe Cleaners’ Quick-Fix™ let’s you quickly repair broken drain snakes in the field. The unique Quick-Fix let’s 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.
