            What EXACTLY to you intend to clear with the machine?

            Will you be using it outside exclusively?

            What kind of pipe will you be using it in?

            What estimated distance?

                        Save your money and call a PRO

                        you could always go to Homedepot and buy a 380 ...

                          Once a year you would honestly be better off calling in a professional drain cleaner to cable the line once a year rather than having a non-earning machine under the shed.

                          I don't consider myself a regular draincleaner yet but I would recommend you get someone to jet the line clear of roots & give a root treatment to kill roots also.

                          Might last 2 or 3 years or longer. Only real way to know is camera the line.

                            The machine I would recommend runs $2000.00

                            Anything else is not worth fighting roots with.

                            Better off calling a pro once a year, or better yet, dig it up and fix it.

                                I would go for both, they each have a advantage.

                                but I use my k-60 95% of the time...for smaller drains inside a drum machine is pretty good though..
