There are a number of different mechanical root cutters available on the market, each with its own strengths. Some cutters are designed for specific applications, such as clearing roots from small-diameter pipes, while others are more versatile and can be used for a wider range of tasks. Take a look at some of the latest product options below.

USB-USA Turbo chain cutters 
The heavy-duty Turbo chain cutters from USB-USA are tough and powerful. These cutters continuously adjust from 8 to 15 inches (Turbo S200) or 12 to 24 inches (Turbo S600) and easily fit into the pipe. Turbine technology powers the durable chain retainer on a robust body to remove roots, concrete, calcium deposits, hardened grease and tuberculation from sewer lines. They are designed to be very aggressive for the hardest materials. The beefed up, heavy-duty cutters have double the amount of turbine driving water jets as the company’s other cutters, generating tremendous cutting power. Easily adjust the cutter to within 1/16 inch by spinning the rear to make it larger or smaller. Internal 3D fluid mechanics in conjunction with one-piece ceramic nozzle inserts allow the cutter to be used with recycled or clean water. 844-285-5770;

Viper chain cutters are designed to remove heavy obstructions caused not only by roots, but grease, mineral deposits and other solid organic material. The unit is driven by a high-performance turbine, which doesn’t require any lubrication. Chains spin at speeds of 4,000 to 12,000 rpm. Multiple guide skids available in various sizes provide a service range of 4 to 48 inches. The Viper can be operated with recycled water. 877-864-9394;
