      That is just cause you don't know how to use it. A little practice will fix that

          We rarely took longer than an hour to clear a drain and we had a one hour minimum so I guess it didn't really matter. I never told my guys which machines to use they used the ones they wanted as they were both available. The new guys always went for the drums first but soon converted over when the realized the benefits of the sectionals.

          The only rule I ever had with the guys was if the customer called back with a secondary stoppage and I felt the drain was not properly cleaned they went out on their own time for the follow up. It didn't take them too long to realize that although the drum machines could save some time the sectionals did a better job.

                  I started plumbing back in the early 80`s at a union shop. I think you know what my job was???? I am now 20+ years older and use a drum machine and you are never gonna convert me back to the stone age. The K-60 has it`s place but from a sewer guy that works his machine all day long, Drum is the way to go on "MOST" lines in a real world setting. Now as a service plumber the K-60 would work but as a Sewer Cleaner "NO WAY"

                  Why do you think Roto Rooter and Mr. Rooter uses Drum machines

                    Put 15 more years in and we will talk again. In the real world you carry both and use the one which works best for the scenario you are facing.

                          Not any more, I had to kill the Hole Hawg to make one good machine

                          Hope I don't need to drill a big hole in anything for a year or so till I get brushes from Ridgid

                              I was looking at ways to just strap the complete Hole Hawg on the K-7500. Good thing I hadn`t started drinking yet

                                Each of our trucks carried a large drum machine with 200' of 3/4" and 100' of 1/2", a smaller drum machine with 50' of 3/8" and 35' of 1/4", a K-50 with 200' of 5/8" and both bulb adapters (5/16" + 3/8") and a K-60 with 200' of 7/8". The larger KM-1500 and K-500 stayed in the shop until they were needed. There is a lot you can do with a sectional cable that you cant do with the stiffer drum cable but that works both ways.
