The Mini-Rooter XP gives you extra portability because 8" semi- pneumatic wheels let you keep the weight on the ground. The handle folds down to save space and locks to use as an additional lifting handle. A roll bar protects the 1/3 hp motor when going up or down stairs. And the power cord and foot pedal can be stowed away on convenient cord wraps.
The Mini-Rooter XP gives you extra performance and value, enabling you to clear clogged drain lines from 1-1/4" to 4" in diameter with just one machine. The variable speed Power Cable Feed makes a lot of tough jobs go much easier. It feeds or retrieves the cable at up to 16 feet per minute.
The cage easily holds 75 ft of 3/8" cable and 50 ft. of 1/2" cable and features a free floating inner drum with an integral distributor tube to help prevent cable tangling. By switching to the optional J-Drum you can handle smaller drain lines. The drum is a snap to remove, taking less than a minute.
Power Cable Feed
A variable speed power cable feed attachment makes feeding and retrieving the cable much easier. It quickly adjusts between 3/8" and 1/2" cables without the need for tools or additonal parts. You’ll want to equip your XP with a power cable feed too. It makes a lot of tough jobs go much easier.
Even with the power cable feed, the drum is a snap to remove, taking less than a minute. Of course the XP comes with an air foot pedal and ground fault circuit interrupter for safety, and General’s patented Flexicore wire rope center cable for durability.
The handle is tall enough to make it easy to move the machine to the job, yet it can be quickly folded to take up less room in the vehicle.
With a J-Drum, you’re ready for small drain work in seconds. Equipped with a collet chuck with tightening handle. Will hold any Super-Vee cable. Catalog Number MR-250
A momentary contact reverse switch protects the cable by preventing the operator from running the machine in reverse for more than a few seconds at a time.
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.
