"The Rootwacker" Rotating Chain Root Cutting Nozzle

I need a " user friendly " root cutter for my jet flusher. It should be an efficient low maintenance, low profile rootoutter for use in pipes 4" through 15" diameter: It should have low water usage so we won't run out of water between manholes and should be resistent to hang ups in the pipe. I would also like to eliminate the need for multiple skid assemblies for different pipe sizes too, If It is possible. Cali you Help?

"Solution :
Yes, we can! The IEQ " Rootwacker " is a high performance rotary nozzle designed for cutting roots and removing deposits from pipe walls. As It is propelled through the pipe, the chains attached to the spinning body rotate at speeds up to 1600 RPM. As the chains spin, they are thrust outward against the inside surface of the pipe by centrtfugal force, removing roots and other obstructions. This cutter is ideally suited for pipes wtth reduced diameter and off set pipe joints. It uses much less water than conventional hydraulic root cutters and resists tendencles to get hung up. There is no hydraulic motor to maintain. Simply rinse it with diesel fuel when you're done using it and forget it until the next time you need it. No Skids. No hydraulic motor No maintmance. Best of all, it is "user friendly "
