      what do you think i use to follow up on those clowns when they fail?

      both the drum and sectional will clear a drain. the section will clean the drain much better. try both machines without cutters and you'll see what i, mark, ben and the rest of the sectional guys are talking about.

      i really hope #8 at the roundup is going to prove the superiority of the sectional over the drum.

          The sectional is much more flexible than a drum cable. When was the last time you used your K-7500 to snake an 1 1/2" Durham trap? The sectional also does a better job of scouring the walls because of the open wind. On the other hand once you get out past 200' I prefer a drum machine.

            I follow up on those clowns when they fail with my K-7500 with a cutter on the cable

            I would never try to clear a line with-out a cutter or something on my cable so that just makes no since to me Rick.
            An Open cable would leave more behind then a closed cable.
            If I want to bring something back I use a retriever or bulb auger. I really don't want to bring anything back so most of the time I use a double blade cutter and give the root ball to the city.

                Okay I'll play along, which cable are you using in your K-7500 when your snaking through a 1 1/2" Durham trap? As a matter of fact I doubt your K-7500 could even snake through a 2" Durham trap.

                      The question at hand was not how many snakes does it take to clear a drain it was what can a sectional cable do that a drum cable cannot.

                        the cutter is not the only thing that cleans the line. the cable on a sectional does too. grease is a prime example and so is mud/ dirt. roots come back with my cables all the time. plus my sectionals don't rust in the cage.

                        you really need to get the demo of one.

                        i'll personally give you a demo at the roundup.
                        well lets just call it a schooling

                        if it's not in the contest, i'll make my own contest to run it through the paces. just bring some cash as you will not want to go home without a k-60 in your hands plus have an extra $3.50 for the milkshake i'll earn

                          Good catch Joey you are right he would never clear a Durham trap with a 1/2" cable.

                            what are you calling a Durham trap ? Durham is a brand of fittings and yes they make traps.

                              We are calling a Durham trap a Durham trap. The Durham built traps are much tighter than a standard trap.
