General Pipe Cleaner's Root 66, a sectional cable power drain cleaner designed to clear practically any inside or rooftop drain, uses 5/8- or 7/8-inch sections interchangeably. There's no need for adapters or tools to switch from one cable size to the other. In addition, smaller 5/16- or 3/8-inch Flexicore cables can be used by sliding a container onto the back of the Root 66, setting it up for sink lines and other small drain lines. 

Operating the Root 66 is easy, too. Depress the drive handle for plenty of cable torque from the 1/2hp capacitor motor. Release the drive handle, and the cable immediately stops rotating — for no additional torque build-up. A wide four-point base adds greater stability, and an optional dolly makes transport easy over long distances. 

Other accessories include cable carriers, a drum for small drain work and a toolbox. Standard equipment includes a ground fault circuit interrupter, double palm leather gloves, rear guide hose and General’s tradition of quality, performance and reliability.

Optional 7/8-inch Proflex sectional cables sport an inner spring, which gives the cable greater strength to resist kinking and to transfer extra torque down the cable for additional cutting power.
