General’s Mini-Rooter XP™ Is Drain Cleaning Pro’s Friend On Toughest Jobs

“That machine is my friend, and I go nowhere without my friend!”

That’s Jeff Wall on the Mini-Rooter XP™ – his favorite drain cleaning machine.

“I’ve had it everywhere – on rooftops, in basements, in crawl spaces and in yards,” he laughs. “I’ve taken it apart, transported it in sections and reassembled it in really tight spots. it always works the way I do – hard and creatively!”

Matchless Flexibility & Maneuverability

Easy to transport and maintain, Mini-Rooter XP from General Pipe Cleaners unclogs drains from rooftops, to basement, including kitchen, bath and laundry lines. It carries 75 feet of 3/8″ or 1/2″ Flexicore® cable to clear 2″, 3″ and most 4″drain lines.

General’s practical design makes drum and cable switching a snap with minimal mess or lost time. The variable speed Power Cable Feed drives and retrieves the cable at up to 16-feet-per-minute for optimum cable control and is adjustable between 3/8″ and 1/2″ cables without additional tools or parts.

“It weighs about 90 pounds, but it’s no weakling,” Wall says. “It’s just tough equipment priced right. I love the reliability and maneuverability.”

Mini-Rooter XP rides on 8″ semi-pneumatic wheels. The solid, easy-grip handle folds down to save space and locks in place as an extra lifting handle. A roll bar also protects the 1/3-horesepower motor during transport and work.

Standard safety features include an air foot pedal and ground fault circuit interrupter. Optional J-Drums for smaller drain lines are also available.

Tool & Cable Dependability for Toughest Jobs

A drain cleaning professional for over 30 years, Massachusetts-based Jeff Wall owns Wall Septic & Drain Cleaning Co. He also likes to push his equipment to the limit.

“Nothing in its class matches Mini-Rooter XP for power and torque,” he claims. “That’s why I even use it for root-cutting even though General said it isn’t designed for that!”

Wall equally credits his machine’s rugged, root-cutting performance to Flexicore cable from General.

“It’s very strong and torques down nice,” he adds. “I’ve never lost anything in a line due to cable breakage.”

That’s because Flexicore cable is made of heavy-duty wire coiled tightly around 49-strand, aircraft-type wire rope. General’s unique design features unequalled strength and the right amount of flexibility. And it’s so tough it carries a one-year warranty against defect or breakage.

“My dad always used it,” Wall declares. “And I swear by it and General cutters, too!”

Reliable Back-Up

Jeff Wall’s arsenal also includes some of the most effective drain cleaning tools available, including the popular Power-Vee™ hand-held drain cleaner with automatic feed and the Sewerooter T-3™ power drain cleaner with 100′ cable capacity.

“I absolutely trust those machines,” Wall notes. “They supplement my Mini-Rooter XP perfectly. And no matter what the task, I’m confident they’ll do the job.”

Power-Vee easily unclogs drains from 1-1/4″ to 3″ in diameter in sinks, laundries and roof vents. The automatic feed is like having an extra hand in tight and awkward spots. “It’s a great one-man machine for any line with sharp bends,” Wall says.

Just squeeze the feed lever and the cable automatically spins itself into the line. To retract, just reverse the motor and squeeze again. Cable feeds at up to 16-feet- per- minute. The unique dyna-thrust bearing helps ensure less motor wear and longer tool life.

Sewerooter T-3 packs power, portability and capacity to clear 2″ to 4″ diameter lines up to 100′ long. It sports an easily removable metal drum with 100′ of 1/2″ Flexicore® cable, powerful 1/3 horesepower capacitor motor, lightweight, reinforced tubular frame and a superb safety package. General’s rugged machine also features big 10″ wheels, tall folding handle and a truck loading wheel for easy transport and maneuverability.

“My Sewerooter T-3 packs a 100″ punch  when I need that extra 25′ the Mini-Rooter XP doesn’t offer,” Wall remarks.

One Happy Professional

Jeff Wall loves the peace of mind rugged, reliable equipment affords.

“I only use products I trust,” Jeff Wall concludes. “That’s why all my equipment is General!”
