General's Upgraded Metro(TM) Power Drain Cleaner Now with Stair Climbers
Press release date: January 9, 2013
General Pipe Cleaners has upgraded the economical Metro™ power drain cleaner. Know as the Mini-Rooter™ of root cutting machines, the Metro now features stair climbers to more easily transport it up and down stairs.
This tough little machine handles roots and other difficult stoppages in 3" through 6" drain lines with a capacity of 75 ft. of 5/8" Flexicore® cable. For smaller jobs, switch to 100 ft. of specially designed 9/16" Flexicore® cable. It has just the right combination of flexibility and toughness for smaller drain lines.
Lighter and more compact than other root machines, its narrow profile facilitates handling in tight places, on stairs, or loading into the truck. The maneuverable Metro features a fold-down handle, stair climbers, truck loading wheel, and tough frame on 10" heavy duty wheels for easy transport.
Heavy-duty wire tightly coiled around 49 strand aircraft-type wire rope, Flexicore® cable offers unequalled strength - and the right amount of flexibility. It's so tough it carries a one-year warranty against defect or breakage.
