General’s Speedrooter XL® Blends Long Distance Clog-Busting Power With Easy Drum Changes


Now with easily interchangeable drums, the Speedrooter XL® from General Pipe Cleaners clears tough clogs in 3” to 10” lines – up to 200 feet.

The rugged, easy-to-maneuver Speedrooter XL sports a powerful 3/4 hp motor and 100 foot capacity drums for Flexicore® cable.

Change drums to add cable lengths or swap cable sizes with ease. Just loosen three knobs and remove the drum. Switch between 3/4” or 5/8” cables in the large drum design – General’s see through inner cage lets you quickly gauge how much cable remains – or substitute the small drum with 100 feet of 1/2” cable for smaller lines.

Variable speed cable feed offers raw driving and pulling power for long, tough jobs – feeding and retrieving 3/4”, 5/8”, and 1/2” cables. To adjust 3/4” or 5/8” cables, simply turn a knob on top of the feed – no screwdriver required!

One person can easily load Speedrooter XL onto a truck. The machine’s frame slides smoothly from the loading wheel to the handle to stair climbers and finally to the wheels. The adjustable height, swept back handle also provides maximum maneuvering leverage. And the durable design features a braced frame at key stress points, front and rear drum supports for longer bearing wear, and Flexicore® cable.

Flexicore® cable offers superior kink resistance and unequalled strength with the right amount of flexibility. It’s so tough that it carries a one-year warranty against breakage.
