A Drain Cleaner with Root-Cutting Power

Company News

General Pipe Cleaners announces the economical Metro™ power drain cleaner which gives root-cutting power at a bargain price.


With a capacity of 75 ft. of 5/8” Flexicore® wire rope center cable, the Metro™ handles roots and other tough stoppages in 3” through 6” lines. Or switch to 100 ft. of specially designed 9/16" cable for smaller jobs.


Lighter and more compact than other root machines, its narrow profile facilitates handling in tight places, on stairs, and loading onto trucks. The maneuverable Metro™ features a fold-down handle, stair climbers, truck loading wheel, and tough frame on 10” heavy duty wheels for easy transport. 


The automatic feed moves cable into and out of drains faster and easier. Drive and retract cable at up to 20 feet per minute with the variable speed control. And keep hands clean, safe and away from spinning cable with the power cable feed and guide tube combination.


Heavy-duty wire tightly coiled around 49 strand aircraft-type wire rope, Flexicore® cable offers unequalled strength, and the right amount of flexibility. It’s so tough it carries a one-year warranty against defect or breakage.
