  • Hey Rick!

    What do you think of the general i-95 with the 1/2 motor? I have been looking at the K-60 for doing vent work but the I-95 looks like it's clone do you have one of these in your arsenal? The I-95 with cable is about $350 cheaper so I keep looking at it. None on ebay just new ones.
    I keep being outbid on ebay for k-60's

    i know, as i can't find one on ebay either.


    i do own one and it's very good hate to say it but at $350 cheaper, go for it. you'll love it. make sure to get the inner core cable so you can do 6'' with it and 5/8'' so you can do 1.5'' too.

    ben got a steal on one on craigs list. i think he likes it too.

      I think you've got 'em mixed up. The i95 is only 1/3 hp, so it's more like the K-50. The Root 66 has a 1/2 hp motor. I priced the Root 66 similarly equipped to the K-60 and didn't see much difference. They quoted me about two k for a K60se and an extra 75' of 7/8 and a 5/8 cable package.

      Edited to add: the Root 66 runs at 400 rpms. The K-60 runs at 600 rpms.

              i don't know about better. but i wouldn't pass 1 up for the right price.

              the innercore cable is also a bonus for 6''.

              the handle is used to adjust the cable diameters and the rear guide hose is a better design.

              like i said, i wouldn't pass 1 up.

              i don't keep mine in the truck. but i might rotate it every month and give my k-60 a well deserved month off.
              then i will know if the k60 and route 66 are brothers from a different mother
