    We just broke a NEW 3/4 I/C cable yesterday. I dont know how much power that takes but I`m sure the K-60 aint got it
    Let's see k60-1/2 hp and pulls 7 amps. Induction motor
    k7500- 4/10 hp and draws 6 amps. universal motor

    I think it has plenty of power.
    Buy cheap, buy twice.

      you don't need the seasnake to sale C/Os just a sewer machine. The seasnake will make you rich doing repairs and or replacements!

      My tools make me money and for that I LOVE EM

              I feel the opposite. Every time I use my 3800 after about 10 mins, I have the sewage water in the drum and it starts to fling out in fat drops. Not so with the k60, just personal opinion.

                The Key to making money is to sell em C/O`s

                Hook up with a master plumber and life will be good

                The key to making money is doing a good job. Building trust with your customers, and carrying the best equipment. Intelligence, Integrity, Honesty. I rarely sell cleanouts, but then its my job to fix the line without digging. I go to digging as a last resort...sometimes you dont have a choice, i understand that.

                  and to do a good job you need a good C/O where you can get a good push on your cable and bring back the BIG root ball It all goes hand in hand

                      all clear, on a job like this, i would have to charge by the hour just to get a feel for it. on a return visit, i can look at my past time and if they wanted a price, i could generate a price from past track record.

                      why wouldn't they let you jet the lines? especially with all the butter?

                        I told em I wanted to but they have a small jetter and don't think they work. ( I remember those days

                        I`m gonna talk em in to letting me jet the food lines and cable the other lines that we got wood and plastic out of.

                        The only problem with jetting the lines is going up combos....errrrrrr
                        Have to cable down line and tie a rope on and pull the jetter up line to back jet.

                          remember, i don't capitalize. you need to lower case the "A" in and

                          pretty good, but i like marks idea better. and i'm a little worried about papadans intents.

                            Why not use a mouse and a shop vac to suck your rope through?
