The Picote Solutions name is firmly cemented in the trenchless industry for their game-changing pipeline rehabilitation solutions, but their latest range has demonstrated their ability to pivot to meet the needs of their customers working as contractors or small business owners.
Tom, International Business Development Manager from Picote Solutions UK loves the Picote Battery Powered Mini Cleaner for “its versatility in the house. This piece is ideal for anyone doing internal plumbing. Any domestic plumber should have a tool like this in their arsenal.”
This unit comes with a detachable foot control, which allows for hands-free operation, and the stepless speed control of the foot pedal offers high speed and high torque operation at between 800 and 2200 rpm. This is an extremely effective unit for cleaning, descaling and root cutting in pipes from DN32-75.
Most impressively, the unit operates independent of a power outlet, eliminating leads and cords as potential trip hazards and minimising disruption to homeowners.
Furthermore, if a power source is available close by battery charging can be undertaken even when the units are in operation.
Also in the battery range is the Picote Battery Powered Mini Miller which has undergone a complete redesign and gear box upgrade from previous models. Contrary to the traditional powered versions, the Battery Powered Mini Miller is cordless and can operate for up to 3 hours continuously with its standard battery, helping to reduce worksite footprints.
Most impressively, the redesign has increased the capabilities and productivity of the unit, making it even more effective in cleaning, descaling and root removal in smaller pipes from DN50–100. The units are also efficient in cutting and reinstatement works in pipes from DN50–75.
Similarly, to the Battery Powered Mini Cleaner, this unit has a dedicated high-speed and high-torque motor with stepless speed control and an electric safety clutch.
According to Tom, from Picote Solutions UK; “the Battery Powered Mini Miller is much more versatile than the powered version. The power delivery is much smoother and is now more powerful than ever before, cleaning up to DN100 pipes.”
Next up in the battery range is the Picote Hybrid Midi Roller. This Hybrid Midi Roller is for impregnating CIPP liners from DN50-225. This lightweight, compact unit can be powered by the integrated battery or plugged in and charged during use.
The built-in high-performance battery, with approximately 10 hours of working time, allows you to work anywhere without access to electricity.
All three of these battery-operated units have been developed to put the user in control and provide rapid but thorough renovation and cleaning regardless of where you are, making them a great choice for small businesses conducting domestic plumbing work.
Dawn Greig, Senior Director at Picote Solutions said: “With the growing drive towards net zero and the need from contractors to be able to access worksites that have limited or no direct power supply, Picote Solutions battery-powered options are truly the way forward.”
