The Easy Rooter is a tough, easy-to-use machine. It has a rugged steel frame with roll bars to protect the motor and heavy-duty roller bearings in the cage for longer life and greater motor efficiency on long runs. The large zinc-plated cage holds 100 feet of 3/4″ or 5/8″ Flexicore cable, while optional smaller cage holds 100 feet of 1/2″ cable. An extra-long folding handle quickly locks in place, making it much easier to wheel the Easy Rooter to the job, without sacrificing the compact size needed for easy loading in a car trunk. The Easy Rooter rolls smoothly on big 10″ ball bearing wheels mounted on a half inch reinforced axle. Power is supplied by a 1/3 hp motor with capacitor start, thermal overload protection, and reverse switch. Standard safety features include an air-actuated foot pedal, ground fault circuit interrupter, safety slip clutch.
