Rodrunner

The Rodrunner offers all the features that contractors like in a sectional sewer cleaner – light weight, high speed cable rotation, and

Two Way Operation

Most often, you set the Rodrunner up close to the drain opening. However, on easier jobs where you have some working room, you can run the machine “lawn-mower” fashion, standing behind the machine and keeping

For close-up work, the wheel brake is set, the power switch is placed next to the machine to be used as a foot switch, and the cable guide hose is attached. Now, the Rodrunner is ready to handle the toughest stoppages in 3-10" lines, as far as 200 feet away.

A heavy-duty 3/4 hp motor with capacitor and overload protection spins cable at 485 rpm, an ideal speed for self-feeding into the line while protecting the cable against sudden torque build-ups. For additional protection, the Rodrunner has an adjustable slip clutch, which is factory set at 18-20 ft. lbs.

An optional set of jaws (R-R10AD) enables the Rodrunner to drive 15 ft. x 7/8" (15R10) cables to clear smaller lines

Chuck Handle

Two Way Chuck Handle

Locked down against cable, you have both hands free to hold the cable. This isa real helo when pulling cable out of the line.

Folding Handle

Rodrunner weighs less than 100 lbs., so it’s way to move to and from the job. Folding handle gives a low profile for more convenient storage on truck.

Cable Feeding Tool

Cable Feeding Tool

It gets cable around tight bends, when self feeding cable into line. Ten foot cord power swt5ich permits remote control.

Pneumatic Power Switch

Power switch is located on handle for storage and use in “walk-in” operation. For close-up work, it’s removed from handle for use as a foot swtich.

Pedal

Sectional Cables.

Cables are available in three different connector styles. We recommend the “G” connector for reliability and durability. The 1-1/4” cables come in ten and fifteen foot lengths. The ten footers can be ordered with either a spring or chain center. The fifteen foot lengths are available only in hollow version with an “R” connector
