      i like it

      actually the rpm's are slower than i thought. that's a good thing.

      my rotary nozzle is real fast for cleaning concrete.

      the slower the rpm, the better the cutting. more cutting, less spraying.

      thanks for the video, gene.

          When I was a kid we built this house, sort of a log cabin. One of the worst jobs was debarking all the ceder by hand, wish I had the root ranger then.

            actually the rpm's are quite high, so fast in fact, the camera doesn't pick it all up so the rotary action looks different in person.

                  interesting illusion.

                  then the nozzle is pretty much the same design as what i use for cleaning concrete. makes a big wining noise and moves a lot of air.

                    remember gene, the nozzle will be touching the roots and have the most impact at the point of contact. also when was the last time we encountered 3'' roots that were dried like a log.

                    the normal stuff we encounter is alive and soft tissue. not a tree trunk

                    i'm more concerned with it pulling through a 4'' 1/4 bend.

                    will it do 3'' straight pipe?

                      Root RAnger
                      3" Straight = YES
                      3" With bends = lots of wrestling with the hose to get it running out and same to bring it back.
                      Since I got my new 3/8 red hose my Warthog just goes out and comes back with ease!

                        Cuda,
                        Have you noticed any pitting or premature ware on you hose from using the root ranger?

                          No I have not, nothing bad but it does spray only backward so it will shine the hose a little, question do you use the hose directly into the unit or do you use the supplied steel piece for doing 6" lines?

                            Paper says extension is to stabilize in a 6 or 8" line and never go in over 8". I'm thinking this is due to the head turning itself around and shooting back out to you. This is one of the biggest causes for jetting related injury.
                            To answer your question, Yes, I will be using the extension.
                            Today was going to be test day but so far we are getting rained out.

                              What size line and what size hose and how long come to mind as they all work hand in hand. The root ranger and your machine size are perfect but then it comes down to the length and pipe size you are doing since you are in Maine your jobs and mine are probably different since I am in the city usually doing short runs to the sewer. I have now increased my hose size to 1/2" to get full flow with my machine at 10 gmp but with my 5gpm machine on 3-4" lines I found 3/8 worked great! and even 1/4" hose did well but it was hard to make loops with to get past bends and offsets.
