With easily interchangeable drums, the Speedrooter XL gives you long distance clog-busting power in 3″ to 10″ lines – up to 200 feet. The rugged, easy-to-maneuver Speedrooter XL sports a powerful 3/4 hp motor to drive the cable down long runs and clear tough stoppages.

Change drums to add cable lengths or swap cable sizes with ease. Just loosen three knobs and remove the drum. Switch between 3/4″ or 5/8″ Flexicore cables in the large drum design – General’s see through inner cage lets you quickly gauge how much cable remains – or substitute the small drum with 100 feet of 1/2″ Flexicore cable for smaller lines.

Variable speed cable feed offers raw driving and pulling power for long, tough jobs – feeding and retrieving 3/4″, 5/8″, and 1/2″ cables. To adjust for each cable size, simply turn a knob on top of the feed – no screwdriver required!

One person can easily load Speedrooter XL onto a truck. The machine’s frame slides smoothly from the loading wheel to the handle to stair climbers and finally to the wheels. The adjustable height, swept back handle also provides maximum maneuvering leverage. And the durable design features a braced frame at key stress points, front and rear drum supports for longer bearing wear, and Flexicore® cable.

Success Stories

“Drain cleaning can be pretty messy, and you expect to see some nasty stuff,” he admits, “But imagine my surprise when my Super-Vee™ once snaked a Batman toy from a line. I still don’t know how I did it!”

John Comerford Jr Cleveland, OH

I offer a 30-day warranty on every drain-cleaning job, but I can’t give a warranty if I don’t do the job right, and I can’t do the job right if I don’t have the right tools. That’s why I run my whole company with General products, they enhance our professional image!

Chris Fantauzzo Trenton, NJ

General equipment is durable, and takes a beating,” he says. “We use our General tools 24/7 – 365 days a year, and they don’t fail us. General equipment lets us power through tough problems that our competitors walk away from!
