Rodrunner® Model E - General Pipe Cleaners

The Model E gasoline powered Rodrunner is ideal for cleaning long runs up to 500 ft. down the line. It can be coupled to either 10 ft. sectional cables to clear up to 14″ lines or 5/16″ municipal rods to clear lines up to 24″ in diameter. The operator stands behind machine and walks cables or rods into line.

It’s driven by a powerful 205 cc (6.5 hp) engine with an easily accessible throttle control on the handle. Drive speed is set at 100 to 200 rpm for municipal rods and 200 to 400 rpm for sectional cables.

The “hot-shift” transmission lets you switch from forward to reverse without the need for a clutch. The long gear shift lever is within easy reach of the operator. And features like the 3/4″ lifetime lubricated drive chain and safety slip clutch to protect cables and rods against excessive torque build-up means low maintenance.
