Frequently Asked Questions
Q. "How do these cutter heads attach to the cable, and how do I change them?"
A.The cutter heads for Flexicor® cables connect using a screw and lock nut. The sectional cables use a unique interlocking system in which the cable and cutter have connecting ends.
Before attaching any cutter, first unplug the machine.
- For machines using the Flexcor® cables, first remove the screw and lock washer from the connector at the end of the cable. Slide the cutter in the slot, then replace the lock washer and connecting screw and tighten the screw firmly.
- For the sectional cables, slide the slot on the cutter over the tab on the female connector until the spring pin pops into place. To remove the cutter, use the RCK-10 for 7/8" sections or the #CW Coupling Wrench for the 1-1/4" sections. Push the key into the hole just below the slot in the female connector, then slide the cable ends apart. Cable sections are coupled and uncoupled the same way.
Q. "Can the ClogChoppers be used to remove polyester CIPP liner from the insides of drain pipes?"
A. The ClogChoppers were designed for clearing the drain to prepare for installation of liners such as CIPP (cured-in-place pipe liner). They have not been tested for cutting out drain liners themselves so the manufacuter does not recommend them as a suitable tool for removing these types of liners.
