Rodrunner® - General Pipe Cleaners

The Rodrunner offers all the features that contractors like in a sectional sewer cleaner – light weight, high speed cable rotation, and short quick-coupling cables.

Two Way Operation

Most often, you set the Rodrunner up close to the drain opening. However, on easier jobs where you have some working room, you can run the machine “lawn-mower” fashion, standing behind the machine.

For close-up work, the wheel brake is set, the power switch is placed next to the machine to be used as a foot switch, and the cable guide hose is attached. Now, the Rodrunner is ready to handle the toughest stoppages in 3-10″ lines, as far as 200 feet away.

A heavy-duty 3/4 hp motor with capacitor and overload protection spins cable at 485 rpm, an ideal speed for self-feeding into the line while protecting the cable against sudden torque build-ups. For additional protection, the Rodrunner has an adjustable slip clutch, which is factory set at 18-20 ft. lbs.

An optional set of jaws (R-R10AD) enables the Rodrunner to drive 15 ft. x 7/8″ (15R10) cables to clear smaller lines.



  • Self feeds 8, 10 and 15 foot sectional cables.
  • Pneumatic foot pedal frees both hands to control cable.
  • Can be used as “Close-up” or “Walk-behind” machine.
  • 3/4 hp motor can drive sectional cables 200 ft. down the line.
  • Safety slip clutch protects against sudden torque build-ups.
  • Features folding handle, 10″ tires, and cable counter.
  • Made in U.S.A.

Two Way Chuck Handle

Locked down against cable, you have both hands free to hold the cable. This is a real help when pulling cable out of the line.



Pneumatic Power Switch

Power switch is located on handle for storage and use in “walk-in” operation. For close-up work, it’s removed from handle for use as a foot switch.

Cable Feeding Tool

It enables cable to get around tight bends and traps by taking advantage of open-wound design of cables. Note that operator controls machine by using power switch in foot pedal mode.



Folding Handle

Rodrunner weighs less than 100 lbs., so it’s easy to move to and from the job. Folding handle gives a low profile for more convenient storage on truck.
