    THE ORIGINAL GRINDING CHAIN

    Made from Stainless Steel, these chains will not rust and can be used time and time again providing a cost-effective solution.  An all-round general cleaning and grinding chain, the Original is more effective than water jetting methods.  A great value quality chain, this is highly regarded as the first choice for many technicians.

    THE CYCLONE

    Very efficient; faster and stronger than regular grinding and cleaning chains. The Cyclone purges even the most problematic pipes.  For use with pipes that are in bad shape or even cracked.  The centrifugal force is evenly distributed inside the pipe.  By maintaining a central position, the chain does not bang against the side of the pipe when in use, making it a much safer method.  Saves time and money; made from stainless steel this chain will not rust.  Not only does this chain remove roots and other hard materials like lead quickly and easily, when teamed with one of the Miller machines the combined torque power delivers an even more rapid result.
