General's Typhoon(TM) Trailer Jet Big Cleaning Power in a Tough New Package

Press release date: February 23, 2012

The Typhoon(TM) trailer jet from General Pipe Cleaners blows away blockages in big lines and long runs. The Typhoon delivers 12 gallons a minute at 2500 psi to blast lines clean of grease, sediment and debris. A 200 gallon holding tank carries enough water to handle remote applications where access to water is limited. Two hose reels - a jet hose reel with 400 ft. x 1/2" capacity featuring variable speed electric rewind, and a water supply hose reel carrying 150 ft. x 3/4" hose - are mounted at the rear of the unit next to the pressure gauge and output valve. Engine controls, including an hour meter, are mounted within easy reach in the lockable tool box with slide action doors just below the reels. The Typhoon boasts electric brakes, safety strobe light, three safety cones with holder, rear fold-down stabilizer jacks, retractable hose guide arm, and anti-freeze system as standard equipment. A reliable 24 hp (690 cc) Honda engine with electric start powers the durable triplex pump with Vibra-pulseĀ® to help slide the nozzle around tight bends and propel the hose down long lines.
