    General Wire PV-C-WC


    Power-Vee Package w/ 50HE1-DH (50' x 1/4") & 35HE2 (35' x 3/8") Cables, HECS Cutter Set, Extra Cartridge, Carrying Case

    Clearing clogged sink, tub and laundry drains is easier with the Power-Vee drain cleaning machine with automatic feed. We’ve miniaturized our big machine power cable feed and put it on the Super-Vee to give you feeding speed and convenience you haven’t seen before in a hand-held power drain cleaner.

    It’s a real labor-saver in tight or awkward places. It’s like having an extra hand. To feed the cable just start the Power-Vee and squeeze the feed lever; to retract it, reverse the motor and squeeze the lever. The feed handles 1/4″, 5/16″ and 3/8″ cables. No adjustment, disassembly, or additional parts required.

    Quick Change Cable Cartridges make it easy to switch to different diameter drain cables. You just loosen three screws, pull the front of the drum off and load another cartridge. Changing takes less than a minute and turns what could be a messy job into a clean one. The machine holds 50 ft. of 1/4” or 5/16”, or 35 ft. of 3/8” Flexicore cables.

    The Power-Vee also comes with the new Band-It™ splashguard to minimize excess water spray from the spinning drum.

    Our Dyna-Thrust™ bearing system helps carry the weight of the drum, significantly reducing wear on the motor shaft bearing and extending the life of the tool. Also adding to the Power-Vee’s durability is the heavy-gauge stamped aluminum drum. Of course the cables are Flexicore® – with an integral wire rope center. Nobody makes cables like General.

    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.
