The RAM-PRO-XL is the upgrade of the RAM-PRO Tube Cleaner. This system is one of Goodway's most advanced Tube Cleaning machines, due to its extra features. Like a reinforced motor and drive system. It is a compact machine, which can also be moved while on the move thanks to the special folding handle.
The RAM-PRO-XL also has a unique tablet system. You can enter these tablets into the machine, you do not have to take into account the dosage, the machine does that itself. These special TubeGuard-XL tablets are merged with the water rinse. This ensures that the pipes get an internal biofilm protection layer, this can be useful when the pipe bundle goes offline.
The system offers a variable speed, which you can change with 1 turn of the hand. So he can use more power when you are dealing with heavier pollution. In addition, this system is standard equipped with a bi-directional foot pedal. This allows you (with Quick Connect accessories) to rotate both left and right. Not only will you spend less time on cleaning, but it will also be a lot better because the pollution is tackled from 2 directions.
The method always consists of at least (1) a machine, (2) a flexible shaft and (3) a brush. Below is a short video, where the method mechanical Tube Cleaning is explained by us in a minute.

Alternative Tube Cleaners
When choosing an electric machine, there are several alternatives to the RAM-PRO-XL. One of these options is the RAM-PRO. It is seen as 'the little brother' of the RAM-PRO-XL. It is slightly more compact, but cannot be moved while driving. However, it is a fairly light machine, so this should not be a problem. Another alternative is the RAM-4. Just like the XL it can be moved through the dolly. Both alternatives have no adjustable speed, and cannot be used in combination with the special TubeGuard protection tablets. Often budget also plays a role, both the RAM-PRO and RAM-4 are a bit cheaper from a price point of view.
You may also prefer a pneumatically driven Tube Cleaner. The first option is the AWT-100, which is very compact and small in size. The upgrade is our AWT-100X, which together with the RAM-PRO is our most sold Tube Cleaner. This is by far our most powerful machine, and is therefore often used for heavier projects. Think of pipe cleaning processes in the Food and Petrochemical industry.
