  • Ever seen one of these?

    Today I was visiting with one of my local municipal accounts and we got to discussing root cutting methods. One of the old timers who worked there for a million years but was now retired, was hanging out at the sanitary office when I was there. He brings up this old nozzle that they used to use when he was head of the district. The new guy had no idea what he was talking about.

    The old timer walks over to this shelf in the corner, and up behind some other dusty old stuff, he pulls out this nozzle. He explained that it attaches to a fire hose and it was for cutting tree roots. He said it worked well?!?!?

    Of course they had no cameras back then so I guess you never know. I thought this would be an interesting thing for you all to see.

            i can picture it being a good flusher, but not a good root cutter.

            a fire hydrant would only have 150# or so. good volume, but not good pressure to cut roots. at least not real strong roots.

            grease and sludge would be more up it's alley.
