This M888 Upright Workhorse root cutter is a mainline cable machine for cleaning 3″ – 10″ lines. The rooter ships with a 1/2 HP motor and 150 RPM. With MyTana’s easy reel change design, add additional reels and the gearbox can push the cable up to 400 feet.

The upright design is easier on your back than sled-style machines because the transport handle is already at operator height. Built in stair climbers and a removable pneumatic loading wheel allow you to load-in and out efficiently.

Safety features include an air-actuated foot pedal, reverse switch, built-in GFCI circuit with watertight electrical switches and boxes.

Our large Autofeed-Retriever is standard. Available with 11/16″ or 3/4″ cable in either 100′ or 125′ length. Slip-Joint ends are standard for this machine, but other styles are available.
