    Sorry, I did not want to give free advertising.
    I have an older (5 plus years) O'Brien MFG. J-2413 cart jetter without electric start.
    Since my purchase O'Brien has changed the design of the cart to a cut down version.
    Also O'Brien has been acquired by Hi-Vac.
    It is a very portable machine. The vast majority of my work is inner city and a trailer jetter is not always an ideal setup.

    Re: Warthog question?

    I have a small cart jetter that is "rated" @ 3,000 psi and puts out 5 gallons a minute ( I have verified gpm several times with the Warthog nozzle attached in a piece of pipe and put into an actual five gallon pail).
    The Warthog works great! When I first purchased the nozzle from Stone Age the sales rep stated that the rating for gpm's were at the lowest end of the scale and the nozzle may not rotate and also have little pulling force.
    The nozzle rotates fine and I jet six inch clay lines on a regular basis with great results removing both heavy grease blockages and fibrous roots.
    The nozzle pulls 100 feet of 3/8" thermoplastic hose no problem.
    To date it is the best nozzle I have used on this jetter. I am going to purchase a RR at the next Expo after reading everyone rave about it.

    plugging the front jet works great to get a harder pull. problem is when you have a stoppage/ roots and need to cut through them. you're not fighting the back pressure of the front jet.

    i keep 1/8'' brass and stainless plugs with me just for that reason.

    here's my take on the 2.

    i have the 1/2'' and 3/8'' warthog.

    i also have a 1/4'' 4gpm and 1/2'' 12 gpm rootranger.

    between the warthog and rootranger. the rootranger is a more aggressive root cutter. problem is there is no standard front jet. i only need the front jet if the line is packed with roots and plugged.
    also the rootranger requires rotating of the hose to get to the top of the line where the roots are. it requires a twisting motion.

    good news is the rootranger is much less expensive and requires very little maintenance. it also will operate on lower gpm than a warthog.

    i size up the job and pick the nozzle that i feel is going to work the best for the job. sometimes it's the warthog, sometimes it's the rootranger.

    remember the warthog requires more gpm to operate.

    rick.

    Re: Warthog question?

    Yesterdays warthog job,
    home had outside cleanout, camered drain, 4"concrete pipe 110 feet (33 Joints) to the main. drain had roots in 19 of the 33 joints, ran wart hog down drain working 3 foot sections at a time got to the city main shut off jetter re camered all the roots were gone total time on job site 1 hour 25 minutes this included waiting 20 minutes to fill tank and another 5 to winterize my jetter, my opinion is the wart hog is theee best nozzle out there for roots.
