  • K-60 Guide Hose

    Make extensions for the guide hose. Gasketed 10' joints.

    Or just make a 30' guide hose optional. Could be handy.

    I know you can rig one up with some flexible conduit, WardFlex, etc.

    jc. if you knew the price they get for the 12' hose, you would think twice about the 30' section.

    1'' hdpe plastic is cheap and can be easily joined with a pvc coupling by hand.

    also 1.25'' / 1.5'' electrical water proof flex is basically all it is. ask sparky for some.

      Re: K-60 Guide Hose

      i'd like a guide hose like on the K-75 so i can feed the cable from the back of the machine. the 60 hose is almost as big a joke as the 50 hose. in tight spaces it's difficult to always feed from the front and i got a 60 for tight places

        Too bad they charge more than they should for the hose.

            i routinely snake from a 4'' c/o into the 6'' lateral with my c-10 ic/ innercore cable. generally 60' of 4'' and 25' of 6''. i use the innercore on the first 15' section.

            if it's totally root packed. i use my 1.25'' with the timberwolf drill.

              I did 2 - 6" laterals 100'+ each the other day. 60' of general 7/8 innercore + 30' of Ridgid innercore + 30' of Ridgid C-10.

              Speedy Kleeny is my usual 6" machine, but the K-60 will do nicely in 6". I use it for most 6" runs that are under 100'

              As far as the guide hose goes, I use 1.25 spa hose from HD with 1.25" X 1.5 rubber fernco couplings for extra hoses. Slips right on the back hub of the K-60.

              I like the spa hose because it's stiffer, makes it easier to get the cable through.

                  my go to snake for a sewer stoppage is the k-60 with 7/8'' and a spiral root saw. unless i have a track record of the line, the k-60 is the tool for me.

                  with a track record, i then can properly choose the tool of choice.

                        The guide hose is a special hose made for grain transfer. I remember seeing the cost at wholesale and was shocked at the price.
                        Buy cheap, buy twice.
