MyTana Introduces New M745 Workhorse, First Drain Machine with Variable Speed and Torque Protection
Feb 14, 2019
MyTana, a manufacturer and distributor of cleaning, maintenance and inspection tools for the plumber and drain cleaning markets, has released the new M745 Workhorse drain machine. With MyTana’s new M745 Workhorse, drain-cleaning professionals can now adjust cable speed on-the-fly for maximum performance and choose among two torque settings for safety.
The M745 incorporates MyTana’s proprietary new SmartDrive technology. With SmartDrive, cable speed can be throttled (up to 300 rpm) to negotiate turns, strengthen cleaning force, and expedite feeds and retrievals—or reduced (as low as 100 rpm) for tackling obstructions and debris. SmartDrive also includes calibrated torque protection which is designed to safeguard the operator and extend the life of the machine’s cable.
SmartDrive sounds an alarm when cable torque approaches unsafe limits and then automatically cuts power when that limit is reached. The limit can be set high for large drains or low for sink lines. Operators can also select how tension is released: quickly with little resistance, or slowly with more resistance.
A versatile machine, the M745 comes fully equipped to work in 3”-4” lines with 100’ of cable, slip-joint fittings, autofeed, blades and accessories.
A sinkline kit is available to address 1 ½”-2” lines, and no tools are needed to swap reels due to the quick-release design of the drive system.
The M745 is compact to fit in tight spaces, has non-skid feet and balanced weight for stabilization during operation and transport, offers a telescoping adjustable handle that retracts easily for storage, and has built-in stair-rollers for enhanced mobility.
“This new M745 Workhorse gives control to sewer and drain cleaning professionals that is unprecedented,” says Dale Graber, general manager for MyTana. “The M745 is a high-performing machine that saves time and money by working more quickly and accurately, and in turn, protects the safety of the operator and the longevity of the cable.”
Manufacturing St. Paul, Minnesota-based MyTana is a full-service manufacturer of drain cleaning and inspection equipment, including cable machines, drain jetters and plumber cameras. The company also offers cables, blades, nozzles and other accessories for plumbers and drain cleaners. By selling direct, MyTana is able to maintain competitive pricing while offering a high level of personalized service and support. All MyTana equipment is factory-direct and American made.
