This unit operates directly “In-Line” at bottom of open ditch.  It also can be operated from shoulder of Road where cleaning Rods flex down into the open ditch if the ditches have standing water in them.  

This unit is either pulled and pushed through the culvert by hand or the operator can use the built in winch to pull the unit forward and reverse during process

· Movement:  Manual Push/Pull or use of Winch.

· Has cleaned a 36” Culvert with 13” Tool.

· Commonly cleans 24” Culvert 35 foot long
in less then 40 minutes with just two workers.

· Good Power / Good Torque.

 We have upgraded the Classic direct drive Power unit to have a Hydraulic  Pump to provide PTO control.  This upgrade gives the operator the full Forward, Neutral, and Reverse PTO control. 

This unit still uses the pull winch to reduce operator effort. 

NOW! It supports the 9”, 11”,  13”, 16” and 18”  Culvert Cleaning Tools. 

This has been the main power unit sold over the last eight years.  We have also upgraded from the 8.3Hp Engine to the 11hp.  This provides greater torque  to clean culverts even faster!  

A six  year old 8.3hp unit has cleaned 30 culverts in one day!  The county  government uses minimum security prisoners to provide labor for machine operations.

The City Council of Vidor, Texas approved purchase of Rota-Jetter Culvert Cleaning Machine!   Steve Coleman, Street and drainage Manager was impressed with the amount of tree roots removed from the very first culvert cleaned with the systems.   Steve states there culverts are totally full of Pine tree needles, branches and dirt from the major storm last year.   The general plan is to keep the Rota-JETTER Culvert Cleaning Machine on the streets of Vidor every workday.  All the culverts have to be initially cleaned to get water runoff moving.   One Texas County went from 5 to 6 culverts cleaned a day with road crews and after purchase of their own Rota-Jetter Culvert Cleaning Machine they were able to clean over 21 Culverts in one day…
