Standard, Carbide Tip and Penetrating Head Chain Knockers allow for cleaning a wide variety of pipe sizes and give FlexShaft® Machines the capability of clearing multiple types of blockages ranging from grease and wipes to tree roots and even descaling. Since the chains expand as the cable rotates at high speeds, the knockers allow for access through smaller cleanouts in pipes 1 1/4" to 6” pipes. ​ 

Nylon or Nylon/Steel Brushes are great for light cleaning, fragile surfaces, relining preparation, and spray coating applications and could also be used alongside of chain knockers for the ultimate wall-to-wall cleaning with the FlexShaft® Machines.  

Penetrating Heads can be attached with standard smooth chain knockers or brushes for use when carbide tipped chains are too aggressive. Ball Heads are designed for optimal in-pipe navigation in smaller lines while Drop Heads are designed to navigate down stacks in back-to-back applications.
