Featuring a 5’ heavy-duty hose that fits a 4” cleanout tee, the Cherne Residential Plumbing Smoke Blower is lightweight and corrosion-resistant. With exhaust pumped through the plumbing, the blower can be used indoors and easily transported with its top-mounted carrying handle. Its efficient 122-CC, 3.5-HP, 4-stroke Honda engine provides more than 700 CFM, making it fast, easy and safe to determine plumbing-problem areas. Through vibration damping, excess movement and noise are also minimized, creating a smoother and more efficient experience.

By selecting Cherne, professionals choose to test with the best. For more information or to find out where to purchase, visit or your local distributor.
