General Pipe Cleaners has rethought high-speed, flexible shaft machines with the introduction of the Flexi-Rooter, the next-generation flexible shaft machine. General added an integral motor, stronger rod and unique ClogChopper cutters to a durable metal, easily maneuverable frame. 

Flexible shaft technology is faster and more thorough than traditional drain cleaners. The rod spins more than 10 times faster than drum machines. At the speed of up to 2,000 rpm, the cutters quickly grind up stoppages and scour the walls of the pipe. The rod is safely protected inside a sheath so it’s easy to handle — no spinning drums. 

General’s stronger, stiffer rod is flexible enough to get though 2-inch lines, yet strong enough to cut roots in 4-inch drainlines up to 75 feet down the line. It’s powered by an integral variable-speed motor that lets you adjust the speed from 0 to 2,200 rpm. With the foot pedal you have both hands free to safely guide the rod into the line. You can use the Flexi-Rooter simultaneously with your sewer inspection camera system to pinpoint trouble spots in the line and instantly inspect your results. 

General’s unique ClogChopper cutting tools are featured at the business end of both the stainless steel and carbide chain cutters. ClogChoppers revolutionize drain cleaning. They rip through tough stoppages with six self-sharpening blades that dig into encrusted debris and root masses, easily grinding up stoppages, scale and crystallized urine. The spherical design maneuvers around tight bends and traps.

The durable metal frame includes 10-inch wheels and folding handle to make it easier to get the machine smoothly to and from the job. A safety slip clutch helps protects the rod. But if you ever do get into trouble, the rod is field repairable.
