Sewerooter T-3™ A Compact, Portable Mid-Size Drain Machine
The Sewerooter T-3™ combines power and portability. You can clear most 2″, 3”, and most 4″ inside drain lines. The smooth-operating variable speed Power Cable Feed makes it easy to feed and retrieve the cable into and out of the drain line at up to 16 ft. per minute.
The machine rolls on big 10″ wheels, has a tough but light weight tubular frame, and a tall folding handle with a truck loading wheel that makes it easy to move around. A passive wheel brake holds machine securely on the job.
Other important features include a quickly removable drum, and a powerful 1/3 hp motor with capacitor start. Like all General’s floor models, the Sewerooter T-3 offers you the safety of an in-line ground fault circuit interrupter, pneumatic foot pedal, and a Forward-Off-Reverse switch.

Power Cable Feed
The Sewerooter T-3’s Power Cable Feed is a real labor saver. It enables you to vary feeding speed in and out of a line at up to 16 feet per minute and also assist you better when working through tough stoppages. In addition, you can reverse it instantly if you hit an obstruction. The power cable feed drives 3/8” and 1/2” cables.
Greatly increases the efficiency of Power Cable Feed by reducing cable whipping and drag. In addition, when it’s difficult to get the machine close the drain opening, a Guide Tube (Cat # T3-GT) and Guide Tube Extensions (Cat # GTE) can literally take you out of the hole. Guide Tube is about 30” long and 1” in diameter. Five foot extensions are made of rigid conduit with a flexible spring end.
The handle is tall enough to make it easy to move to the job, yet quickly folds to reduce the height to 25” to take less room in your truck.
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 and 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.
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.
