  • DOUBLE BARREL ROOT RANGER DE-ROOTING

    Had a nasty root job that required me to blast a hole through the 6'' clay mass of roots. followed up with my double barrel root ranger running at 4000# and dual 4.5 rotors that should each produce 4.5 gpm. came back with a nice catch to show the owner and camered the line to see before and after shots.

    this nozzle doesn't take any prisoners. it kills them and drags them out with the dual rotors and massive stainless shredder up front.

    Rick.

              Still don't need one....the regular RR does great for me and can get into a 2-1/2" cleanout.

                These are an awesome nozzle but not for every job. Every now and then you get a job that's just right for the DBRR are when you've finished you know nothing else would have cleaned the drain as thoroughly or as quickly!

                  Im guessing you still have to work your hose when you got this bad boy on?

                    How long does the hose end last Rick? Looks like if too takes a hell of a beating from those rotaries.

                      If its sandy or gravel, not very long. Roots aren't bad on the hose. Remember with 4000# and sand, it becomes a hell of a sand blaster.

                      you cold install a short high pressure hydraulic jumper hose too.

                        did a preventative jetting on a sewer i first did 15 months ago. the house is a good 10' above the street and the sewer is 7' below the street. so when this plugs up in a 6'' line that has a 17' head on it, it takes some serious jetting to get it open. the 6'' line is clay from the 53' mark to the the saddle at 85'. the toots start at the 6'' clay and continue for 20'.

                        attempted to go in with my 3/8'' warthog and made no progress at the 53' mark. switched to my forward rotor and was able to blast to the city main, but it took some work. tried the 3/8'' warthog to clean it up, but still couldn't get through. so i broke out the double root ranger and blasted all the way through. you know you're in the main when the air blast stops coming back at you. the double rr is jetted at 4.5 gpm each so the 9 gpm is still less than my 12 gpm 3/8'' warthog.

                        rick.




                        you can see the difference in size with the 3/8'' ball warthog and the double barrel root ranger. both run a 3/8'' hose.

                        the last photo show the elevation drop as my 9' tall sprinter is barely visible from the front yard.

                          Why use the double barrel instead of your 1/4" or 1/2" root ranger? Do you have to flip the hose less?

                            The double rr is a massive hunk of stainless with a great spear head. It covers 1/2 the pipe without a twist. And it pulls like a dragster off the line.
                            I avoid the 1/2" hose when there are lots of turns and lots of obstacles to go through. 1/2" hoose is not nearly as flexible as 3/8" hose. And cost a small fortune if you damage it. I used a 100' of jumper and a 100' of jetter hose, compared to 500' of 1/2" hose on a hydraulic reel.

                          Why not the 1/2 warthog to get through? Or the 1/2 to start.

                          The warthogs don't have anywhere near the front penetrating power of my forward rotor has. My forward rotor cuts like a root ranger. Nothing will stop it.

                          remember the demo I showed you with the rr and the 2x4. Thats what my forward rotor does too.
