  • how do you retrive a sectional when stuck in roots.

    I operate a drum machine and when your stuck its sometimes hard to get it out. You have to reverse it and then forward and also work with your retriever to get it unstuck. I have in the past even pulled on the machine to get it out. I havn't got stuck in a long time and hopefully never will again but when I did it was hard to get the 200 lbs machine out even with all the leverage you have

    Knock on wood, i never got a snake stuck so hard that i had to cut it. I have gotten them stuck but with alittle elbow grease, and running forward, reverse, they came out fine.

        You do the same thing with a sectional machine.

              actually i go by "sewer doctor"


              i've only been stuck 1 time with my sectional and it was not coming out as it was already in the soil from a 4'' area drain with styrene pipe.

              the nice thing on th sectional is the fact that the open wind cable will wind like a screw and also unwind like a screw.

              sure i've run the cable to where the 1.25'' was torquing so hard it would spin my machine or drill in reverse when i stop.

              same with my 7/8'', it would actually torque so hard it would cause the motor to reverse the other direction. i would have to stop the motor and start again to go clockwise/ forward.
