      well it`s a 4" sewer so I`d say 6" hole saw so I get some room if I miss by a 1/4 or so

        they make core bits but you know the rig you need to operate them, draw the circle and take your hammer drill with the largest bit you have and start punching holes within the circle to make your hole. you can clean it up with a side grider and a diamond blade, but that probably wont be necessary, done a lot the same way or we also have 2 and half inch spline drive core bit that works well doing it the same way as already mentioned, after you recrete you can blend it in pretty easy, hope this helps but if you already know all this it felt good to say anyway ps just like playing connect the dots.

          I would rent a core drill from a local rental house, unless you will need this many more times in the future.

            you have the play toys, and i have the plumbing toys

            to do a professional job, you need a diamond core bit with either a hand held coring machine or a bolt down coreing stand.

            they make dry drilling bits that fit a regular grinder 5/8'' arbor. still use water to cool them.

            my bits go from 1'' -12''.

              The highest I've done is about 6' off the ground but I see no reason why 10' wouldn't be possible with a little Yankee ingenuity.
              I don't want to turn this into sectional VS drum BS, but with a sectional and (your really gonna love this) a drill It can be done. Would it be a pain in the a$$? Sure it would, but if this is a one time snaking then I think it would be easier then coring. Plus, If you get it at 10' off the ground and no one else can, they have no choice but to call you in the future.

                Just make sure you use a pacometer or a ferroscan first.

                  What happens if you cut through a piece of rebar or something and 20yrs from now the floor collapses from something that has nothing to do with you cutting rebar? Your going to make some lawyers day.
                  I know your a drum guy so, can you get a man lift or, scaffolding into that area? Then use your machine from that platform?

                      couldn't you make a snoot from PVC to guide the cable into the pipe? i've done this a few times. you'll need someone to hold the snoot so it doesn't try to "walk away" while snaking. i can just about put my cable anywhere i want.

                        I was gonna use a guide pipe and do it like I do roof vents but the stairs and a boiler make me want to do it from the first floor.
                        I think I`m just gonna bid the job from installing one out-side. I still have to cut concrete but out there I can use the concrete saw and backhoe

                              p.s. if you're going to the round up

                              they are located right next to the ridgid factory.

                              look up their address

                              ridgid use to sell coring equipment and this was their product line.
