“There’s nothing like it. It’s fantastic for clearing scale from inside lines. It flies around pipe bends!”

That’s Sylvan Tieger on the revolutionary ClogChopper® root cutting tool from General Pipe Cleaners.

With over 47 years as a plumber, the Bronx-based professional offers a full range of plumbing, drain cleaning, fire suppression and emergency services to commercial, residential and institutional customers in the New York City area.

“A registered master plumber like me can find lots of work in a city of eight million,” Tieger smiles. “My mechanic sometimes wonders why I put so little mileage on my truck. Most of the time, I just travel a couple miles to jobs!”

Much of that work is new construction. “That’s where ClogChopper really shines,” he says.

Raw Cutting Power

Tieger notes that lots of construction debris, like plaster and cement powder, is often carelessly deposited in drains lines. Effective root cutting tools can be useful for clearing and cleaning-out such debris.

“You quickly get a build-up of hardened material inside pipe walls,” he points out. “ClogChopper makes short work of problems like those.”

With six self-sharpening blades, the ClogChopper root cutting tool digs into encrusted debris and root masses, easily grinding up stoppages, scale and crystallized urine without risking pipe damage. It works in both directions, in and out lines, all in one operation.

The spherical design also maneuvers around tight bends and traps, thoroughly and safely cleaning metal, plastic and clay pipes. Available in 1-inch, 1 1/2-inch, 2-inch, 2 1/2-inch, 3-inch and 4-inch sizes, this drain clearing tool is also excellent for clearing stacks, downspouts and mains, as well as for pipe lining jobs.

“ClogChopper is an amazing tool,” Tieger says. “I love how it slices through roots and is self-sharpening!”

Right Equipment Mix Tackles Tasks

Tieger routinely teams ClogChopper cutters with his Speedrooter 92® power drain cleaner, also from General.

“The combination of ClogChopper and Speedrooter 92 lets me tackle long-run jobs even longer than I expected,” he claims.

Superb for long and tough jobs, Speedrooter 92 blends rugged reliability with optimal control and ease of use. Great on tree roots, the field-proven machine features a braced frame at key stress points, a metal drum design for durability and longevity, and Flexicore® cable, the industry standard for toughness.

Variable Speed Power Cable Feed makes feeding and retrieving cable easier. It drives 3/4-inch, 5/8-inch and 9/16-inch cables with no adapters needed when switching between cable sizes.

Speedrooter 92’s durable design also offers easy handling. One person can easily load it onto a truck. The drain cleaning machine’s frame slides smoothly from the loading wheel, to handle, to stair climbers and, finally, to wheels. The height-adjustable and swept-back handle provides maximum maneuvering leverage.

“Pulling the handle down lets me get into small spaces,” Tieger says. “And the big wheels make it easy to maneuver on tight jobs.”

Heavy duty Flexicore cable blends superior strength and kinking resistance with just the right flexibility. It carries the industry’s best warranty – one-year protection against breakage.

“The reason I stuck with General for the last 47 years is the quality,” Tieger concludes. “I can’t find anything better than General equipment on the market!”
