I have a 3/8 Warthhog. Its set up for 8 gpm with 300 feet of 3/8 hose. Allen J Coleman. I think that is even too small sometimes for heavy roots. It rocks for grease and has cleared 12 inch line full of manure and bedding. Cant beleve 3 gpm will pull that well.
I looked at them at the show and talked to one of the reps, the 1/4 wart hog is NOT a controlled spin... so I think it is more of a glorified spinner nozzle, probably work well for removing grease sludgr etc.... but no goosd on roots...Ill stick with my 3/8 warthog it is great fo roots grease or whatever is stuck in the pipe.
I got to try one out before the show. It does not have a controlled spin, but it does have an offset forward jet where other spinners do not. Sadly the engine on my J-3000 decided to not start the day I was going to use it on a known root infested line, so I never got a chance to test it out on roots. I did however use it on a solid ice and tampon blockage, along with a real tight grease blockage. It worked great on them two jobs, it pulled nicely through the line cleared the blockages in one full pass. The machine I used it on as I noted is a J-3000 which is 3000 PSI @ 5 GPM
