General Wire PH-DR-B Drain-Rooter PH Unit with 5/16" x 50' Cable and HECS Cutter Set

The Drain-Rooter PH feeds and retrieves the cable at up to 16 feet per minute. A four-foot guide hose eliminates cable whipping, dirty fixtures and messy floors. And the drum speed can be varied by changing the pressure on the foot pedal, making it easier to thread the boring head through strainers or crossbars. The Drain-Rooter PH is a real labor-saver on long jobs or when working in a cramped area where the weight of the machine could get burdensome.

2/5 StarsMore experience needeed | I have used this machine once so far. The foot switch needs to be stepped on firmly to actuate and sometimes it would not shut off even after the foot is removed. The foot switch also cannot easily be actuated by hand when you are lying down to feed the cable. The two-piece cutter blades cannot be installed tight. It wobbles and catches in the pipe and jams the machine. This could be the sharp angles in my buried pipe and may not be a problem with the attachment. In any case, I was only able to use one of the three attachments. The cable feed does not work sometimes even when I screwed the clutch all the way in. I had to manually get the feed started a couple of times. At this point, I am not sure that the machine will be able to feed properly next time I need to use it. The unit looked and felt solid coming out the box. So, I am somewhat disappointed in the actual performance.
Recommended? No.
