General Pipe Cleaners: Drain Cleaning Made Easy
General Pipe Cleaners’ Model 88™ sectional drain cleaner makes drain cleaning easier. You walk while it works. Just connect one end of the cable to the front of the machine and the put the other end into the drain, then stand behind the Model 88 and turn it on. The cable corkscrews itself into the line.
The Model 88 features a powerful 3/4 hp motor as standard equipment. The heavy-duty motor drives a 3.5 to 1 ratio gear head to give the machine plenty of power to handle the most difficult jobs. The machine also has a longer frame to protect the drive coupling, and a larger front caster wheel.
The Model 88 spins eight or ten-foot quick-coupling cable sections at distances of 200 feet or more. The cables self-feed, while the operator stands safely behind the machine as the cables screw into the line.
For extra strength, General offers either chain or spring center cables. The chain combines strength and flexibility, while the inner spring can handle greater torque on long difficult jobs. Extra space sections are also available. General’s patented no-wrench cable drive coupler enables operator to attach cables faster.
Standard equipment includes a safety clutch, air-actuated power switch, ground fault circuit interrupter, folding handle, 10″ wheels, cable feeding tool, and more.
