Now called Snake-Oil Classic, this lubricant features a rust inhibitor that cuts through moisture and replaces it with a rust resistant coating. Snake-Oil Classic extends the life of sewer cables and machines, including drums, bearings and power cable feeds. General’s deodorant gives everything a fresh, clean smell.

Pour a quantity of Snake-Oil Classic into a machine’s cable drum and rotate the container, letting the oil contact as much of the cable as possible. Then drain off excess Snake-Oil Classic and allow the cable to air-dry.

Snake-Oil Classic joins Snake-Oil Plus, General’s new non-toxic, biodegradable addition to its Snake-Oil family. Snake-Oil Plus creates a virtually non-stick surface that keeps mud and debris from adhering to cables and equipment extending the life of both, the company says. Snake-Oil Classic is available in either quarts or gallons.
