This is an old 1947 spartan sewer cleaning machine. This is the machine my father and Uncle used to clean sewers back in the day. They started cleaning sewers in 1948! The crazy part is this machine really has not changed much. Today they have a guard over the belts and replaced the electric foot switch with an air activated one. Other than that they are about the same and are still the number one machine on the market for drain line cleaning.
