          Sectionals clear blockages with high RPMs. Drum clear blockages with high torque. I prefer sectional when outside, and drum when inside.

              It all seems to be just personal preference for the most part. I prefer drums myself though.

                Sectionals do seem to be the next progression from a large drum and before a jetter due to cost...at least it seems that way to me.

                  Sectionals appeal to the business owner as they are cheaper in the long run. If you mess up a cable, you only have to replace one section, the cables seem to last longer than solid core cables of drum machines also. The machines them selves seem to last longer with less parts to replace than drum machines also(at least the Model C I use is that way).

                    That would depend on the sectional machine. There are also many drums that have been around for decades with minimal maintenance. I would say it depends on the model.

                    You will most likely work harder and make more of a mess getting the line open running a sectional.

                    I run both they each have a place.

                      I asked the same question a while back when hearing more about the sectionals. I decided against using sectionals because all of my sewer calls are for basement cleanouts around here and a lot of them are finished basements. What a pain in the azz I thought it would be using a sectional in these situations. I've been using the same Spartan drum machine and same cable for well over 10 years. If it aint broke why fix it?

                        Haven't you heard ? The sectional cables spin dry right into your carrying cages. It's the drum machines that are a total disaster

                          Me too, I prefer drums as the usual and effective in usage of it.
