Product Code: 
  • please contact us for pricing

The Super-Vee offers you a complete system for cleaning drain lines through 3” in diameter. With a variety of cables, cutters and accessories available, you have the right combination for any clogged drain problem.

The Super-Vee is built to clear clogged drains for a decade or more. And our Dyna-Thrust™ bearing system is one reason why. It helps carry the weight of the drum, significantly reducing wear on the motor shaft bearing and extending the life of the tool. Of course the cables are Flexicore® – with an integral wire rope center. Nobody makes cables like General.

Slide Action Chuck

With a quick movement of the Grip Shield, you release or engage the cable – without the need for a chuck, and with automatic adjustment for different cable diameters. As a result, you get your cable into the line faster, pull it out faster, and have full control at all times. Because the Slide Action Chuck is linked to the Grip Shield, handling is easy and comfortable.


  1. Slide Grip Shield FORWARD to release cable.
  2. Pull Cable out of drum. Slide Grip Shield BACK to grip cable.
  3. Run cable into line and repeat. It’s that quick!

    Slide Action Chuck and Cartridge Refill Cables

    Cartridge Refill

    To switch to a different diameter cable (or even connect two 3/8″ cables together), you just loosen three screws, pull the front of the drum off the cable, and load another cartridge. Changing takes less than a minute and turns what could be a messy job into a clean one. The tough plastic cartridges are so inexpensive, you’ll probably want to store all of your cables in them.

    Snake-Oil Classic

    A great way to extend the life of drain cleaning tools & equipment

    Snake-Oil Classic™ preserves and protects sewer cables against rust and corrosion. It’s better than common lubricants because its special rust inhibitor cuts through moisture and replaces it with a rust-resistant coating. You’ll significantly extend the life of your cables and sewer machine, including the drum, bearings and power cable feed rollers. Snake Oil Classic also includes a deodorizer to give equipment a fresh, clean smell. Available in quarts or gallons.

    Rip through tough stoppages with the unique ClogChopper® multi-function cutting tools. Six self-sharpening blades dig into encrusted debris and root masses, easily grinding up stoppages, scale, and crystallized urine, without risking pipe damage.

    The spherical design maneuvers around tight bends and traps, thoroughly and safely cleaning metal, plastic, and clay pipes. As it spins it also self-sharpens as it scrapes along the pipe walls. It’s excellent for clearing stacks, downspouts, mains, as well as for drain lining jobs.
