The Sewerooter T-3 combines large capacity with great portability. The drum holds 100 feet of 1/2" cable, which is fed into the line with a smooth-operating variable speed power cable feed attachment. The machine rolls on big 10" wheels, has a tough but light weight tubular frame, and a tall folding handle with a truck loading wheel that makes it easy to move around. A wheel brake holds machine securely on the job.

Other important features include a quickly removable drum, and a 1/3 hp motor with capacitor. Like all General's floor models, the Sewerooter T-3 offers you the safety of a fully grounded electrical circuit, a pneumatic foot pedal and reverse switch with an “off” position, plus a ground fault circuit interrupter.

Power Cable Feed The Sewerooter T-3’s power cable feed option is a real labor saver. It enables you to vary feeding speed in and out of a line more easily than you could manually and also you better when working through tough stoppages. In addition, you can reverse it instantly if you hit an obstruction. The power cable feed drives ½” and 3/8” cables.
Sewerrooter T-3
Guide Tube
Greatly increases the efficiency of units equipped with power cable feed attachments by reducing cable whipping and drag. In addition, when it’s difficult to get the machine close the drain opening, a Cable Guide Tube and extension can literally take you out of the hole. Tube is about 30” long and 1” in diameter. Five foot extensions are made of rigid conduit with a flexible end.
Folding Handle
The handle is tall enough to make it easy to move to the job, yet quickly folds to take less room in your truck.
Heavy gauge wire is coiled around 49 strand wire rope and then heat treated. This cable has unequalled strength and the right amount of flexibility. It’s so tough, it has a one year warranty against defect or breakage.
