"Close coiled, left hand wound rods are 1" diameter X 25' long. They are easily coupled together for cleaning runs of 200' or more by means of a 5/8" hex nut. All tools are connected to the coiled rod in the same manner. Once the rod and tool are started in the drain, the Flexi-Cleaner is wheeled forward or pulled back which easily pushes or pulls the rod in or out of the line. The 1" coiled rod is at least 4 times stronger than 3/4" cable. Many Flex-Cleaners have been in use for more than 20 years."

Later flexicleaners used other lamb motors that were not as good. Various other motors were used. The new models have 4 wheels and now use a dayton motor. I have not seen a new one. The last good one used a black & decker motor marvin
