90mm Crown Root Cutter for use with Universal Rods
- 0.71 KGS
Easy to use
Together with a rotating handle (essential) the cutter cut the root mass from the side of the pipe but I needed to use the worm screw to withdraw the matted roots.
Solidly made and sharp. The rotating handle, sold separately, is essential. Rotate clockwise to keep the rods locked and remove any cut roots before progressing. Cutting the roots can also be made when removing the Cutter. ANTI-CLOCKWISE ROTATION MUST BE AVOIDED...
Easy ordering, great communication and speedy delivery
Solved a long-standing problem caused by small roots finding their way into inlet down-pipe of Klargester septic tank. It took ten minutes to free up the blockage with this tool using my existing standard drain rods. The additional purchase of the rotating handle was also well worth it, rotating the rods without it would have been very difficult.
This tool is good value, but progress with it is slow. The substantial central armature tends to compact debris in front of the tool instead of letting it pass through to the rear.
I found this a pretty sturdy bit of kit. It fitted onto my rods without any problem (worth checking carefully as I think there are different types of drain rods). I sharpened the blades as I though that would help and with the handle I bought separately I was able to operate it as a cutter. Need to be careful with bends in the drain as it could get stuck. Minimum fee for a drain specialist was £90 so I thought the investment was worth it. Unfortunately I have not so far been able to cut through the blockage but I don't think that is the fault of the cutter. It maybe that the cutter has cut around it and it now rotating around the central part of the blockage which remains.
