  • Took Ricks advice, Cleaned and oiled today

    Kinda like field stripping My 1911-45
    Bought a used Gen Maxi rooter. Used it today. Had 2 of My guys [at the yard] run all the 3/4" cable out. wire brushed the inside of the drum. grinder with wire brushcup cleaned up the cable. Used 1 qt. of oil on cable and drum innards. Learned to unplug, and not to step on bulb [by accident] while removing belt drive! thumbs a little cut,little swollen he he,dumb shi##.Won't do much of this,and that's OK. New appreciation for the drain guys!

    Tool,
    Contact pat's pump and blower at
    patspump.com
    or 1800-359-7867

    They have a product called KEV-GARD.
    It's some sort of epoxy that is used in lining tanks on pump trucks. It'll keep the inside of your steel drum from rusting. It is really wear resistant.

      Chris ,thank's That's a great idea! Kev-Guard,for a guy named Kevin! Just seems like the right thing to do. Ran a new 4" root cutter from lateral at least 4 ft. into the main. Never had any sensation I was cutting roots.Wonder if the 3/4' cable and 3/4 H.P. with a new cutter Makes that difference? Also have a little K-375 with 1/2" cable, New at this Camera showed roots this week ,I'm told!

        tool, glad you took my advice on cleaning your cable and drum

        sorry you took one for the team

        sometimes until it happens to you, you don't quite understand the dangers.

        please be careful in handling that machine of your'. a 3/4'' cable with a 3/4h.p motor can turn you into a used tool

        there is a lot of built up energy in a rotating drum machine.

        that's the beauty of a sectional machine. when you release the drive handle, the cable stops and there is no overrun

        be careful tool, and ask first before tool gets hurt

                  My son in Law was on this site some time later.He does Geo in Wash. Contractors had to dig up yards,New street. All new lines into homes with concrete. This happened a couple of years ago.I'll try to get address and locate the news story.Good idea to call before digging! Rear yard of home seemed o k I guess! We do retaining walls. 3 years ,ago hand digging We nicked a very old water line on side yard feeding old home above. I had the plot plan and no easement. It was very old ,heavy rust scale pipe. Thank God for fiberglass epoxy wrap. Fixed the weep! Did a dog leg on New wall.would have eaten 250 ft. of pipe.

                    off topic but as long as we are talking about putting liquids where they don't belong. some one replaced a oil furnace with a gas furnace removed the oil tank but not the fill pipes. along came the oil delivery man probably after a hard drinking weekend, he proceeds to pumps 275+ gallons of fuel oil into the basement. they had to raze the house and decontaminate the soil and build a new house. now that aught to give the insurance premiun a little bump.
