Background and Identification
General Pipe Cleaners Easy Rooter model ER-E is a drain cleaner manufactured by General Pipe Cleaners. It can clean between 3-inch and 6-inch diameter drain and sewer lines up to 100-feet long. The drain cleaner includes a ‘Quick-Grip’ chuck that secures the cleaning cable during use.
The Easy Rooter model ER-E weighs 177 pounds and produces a third of one horsepower with a capacitor motor. The drain cleaner includes a momentary contact reverse switch that protects the cleaning cable by preventing the user from running the cleaner in reverse for more than three seconds at a time to prevent thermal overload. The ER-E also features a ground fault circuit interrupter, an air-actuated foot pedal, and a safety slip clutch.
The Easy Rooter model ER-E rolls on two 10-inch ball bearing wheels and includes a built-in brake that prevents the machine from moving during use. It also features a long folding handle that locks into place for easier transportation and maneuvering. The body of the cleaner is powder-coated steel and includes roll bars to protect the motor during transport. The ER-E model can be identified by the cleaner’s orange steel frame and a large coil of silver-colored cleaning line. It also includes a sticker with the name “Easy-Rooter” printed in white font directly above the coil of the cleaning line. Specialized cutting heads can be attached to the chuck by removing a thumb screw and the original cutter.
