Lincolnshire-based contractor Drain Away Drains Ltd have reported on how they’ve been delighted with the speed and safety of their new Picote Mini Cleaner machine, sourced from Picote distributor Source One Environmental (S1E).
The Mini Cleaner was demonstrated to Director Trevor Mansfield when he visited S1E to purchase other products. “I liked it straight away,” Trevor remarked. “I could see how it would help out with our work and was impressed with the structure of the machine. It’s been faultless in giving a spot-on finish each time.
“The handover from the S1E Team was really helpful and S1E’s Terry particularly has answered every query that I’ve had. I can’t fault the service I’ve received,” he added.
The main focus of Drain Away’s work is the descaling of 32-100mm internal pipework for some well-known pub and restaurant chains and trouble-shooting any drainage issues.
With over 30 years’ experience working in the industry, Trevor explained how the Mini Cleaner has made the job easier. “Before the Mini Cleaner, we used a 700 machine, which is powered by an electric drill. With the Mini Cleaner, we have more control over the job and it’s much safer. It’s very fast, taking only minutes to set up and then you only need to go up and down the pipe once to get a great finish. Best of all is the weight of it – it’s easy to carry, even to a top floor job,” he stated.
The new Picote Mini Cleaner was launched in November and is suitable for smaller pipes from DN32-DN75. It is operated via a foot pedal, keeping both hands free for the operator to have more control over the tool. The shaft is durable, flame, abrasion and chemically resistant with a high continuous service temperature and is protected by a non-rotating cover. It features a safety clutch as standard.
The Mini Cleaner is supplied with a Cleaning Tools Package, including brushes, chains and cleaning panels. Trevor commented, “We are mostly using the 32mm and 40mm brushes in our work. When I first looked at the Mini Cleaner, I was impressed with the available attachments, which were such an improvement on what was available for our previous set up.”
