General’s Typhoon® Trailer Jet Storms Through Big Line Clogs

Trailer Jet

Great for a wide range of heavy-duty plumbing, drain cleaning, maintenance, and rental applications, the Typhoon® 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 grease, sediment and debris from 4” to 12” drain lines up to 400 ft. long. And a 200-gallon holding tank carries enough water to handle remote locations where access to water is limited.

General’s brawny machine also boasts electric brakes, safety strobe light, safety cones, rear fold-down stabilizer jacks, retractable hose guide arm, and antifreeze system as standard equipment.

Its reliable 690 cc (24 hp) Honda engine with electric start and 7-gallon fuel tank ensures extended performance on stubborn stoppages. On-demand Vibra-pulse® helps slide the nozzle around tight bends – and propel the hose down long lines.

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 located within easy reach in the lockable toolbox with slide action doors just below the reels.

General’s Typhoon trailer jet rides on rugged 15″ radial tires with modular wheels and a leaf-spring suspension rated at 3500 lbs. per axle. A splash guard at the front helps protect the pump and engine from road debris. And the body is protected by a tough epoxy finish for added weather protection. The Typhoon is also available in a skid mount model.
