Rental Drain Cleaning Machines Boost Profits - Easy Rooter

Renting Reliable Drain Cleaners Boosts Profitability

Category: Rental

1 x 92 = $3,500.00.

That’s the math driving profits at Tweedy Lumber’s Rushville facility near Indianapolis.

“We rented one Easy Rooter® drain cleaner from General Pipe Cleaners 92 times in one year — often twice in one day,” says rental manager Roland Higgins. “Upon return, we’d hose it down, give it a quick inspection, and send it out the door again.”

That reliable drain cleaning machine alone netted Tweedy Lumber $3,500.00 one year.

Unlike many items, drain cleaning equipment remain in year-round demand. And Higgins cites superior ease-of-use, safety features, reliability, and turn-around as reasons for crediting Tweedy Lumber’s drain cleaning success to Easy Rooter™.

A Drain Cleaning Machine That’s Ideal for Quick Turns — And Quick Profits

Designed to clear clogged 3″ to 10″ drain lines of roots and other severe stoppages, the Easy Rooter features a reliable 1/3 hp motor with capacitor, thermal overload protection, and reverse switch. The easy-to-clean open cage reel holds 100 feet of 3/4″ or 5/8″ Flexicore® cable. Flexicore drain cleaning cables from General offer superior kinking resistance and unequalled strength with the right amount of flexibility. They’re so tough that they carry a one-year warranty against breakage.

The rugged General drain cleaner also includes a powder-coated square-tube frame with special “roll bars” to protect the motor. The plated steel cage rides on roller bearings — for enhanced reliability, longer life and greater motor efficiency under the most demanding rental conditions.

Ease-of-use enhances customer appeal. Safety features include an air actuated foot pedal, ground fault circuit interrupter, and safety slip clutch as standard safety features. A helpful “how-to” video is also available from General.

With its extra-long, quick-folding handle, the Easy Rooter fits into most car trunks. And large, 10″ ball bearing wheels on a reinforced axle make transport easy, too. “Judging by how popular they are, our customers must like them a lot!” Higgins notes.

The bottom line? “Easy Rooter is our flagship item,” Ronald Higgins says. “They last and last and last: nothing seems to stop them.” In fact, he quickly adds, Tweedy Lumber only offers General drain cleaning equipment. “That’s because their dependability has really helped our business.”
