General's Improved Mini-Rooter XP(TM)Features New Frame and Automatic Feed

Press release date: February 14, 2011

General Pipe Cleaners improved Mini-Rooter XP features a new "up-right" frame design with roll bars to protect the motor when taking the machine up and down stairs, or loading it into the truck. A variable speed Power Cable Feed enables the operator to feed or retrieve the cable at up to 16 feet per minute. It can quickly adjust to take 1/2" and 3/8" cables without requiring tools or additional parts. The Mini-Rooter XP rolls easily on 8" semi-pneumatic wheels and its rubber feet hold it solidly in position on the job. The handle folds down to save space and locks into place to act as a lifting handle. The powder coated drum can hold up to 75 ft. of 1/2" cable and has an inner drum cage to help prevent cable tangling. Cord wraps on the rear of the frame secure the power cord and air foot switch during transport. The Mini-Rooter XP is designed to clear clogged drain lines from rooftop to basement, including kitchen, bath and laundry drains. It features a pneumatic foot pedal to leave operator's hands free to control cable and a ground fault circuit interrupter for safety. All of General's machines are equipped with Flexicore® wire rope center cables which have greater strength without sacrificing flexibility.
