    Easy day with the 5/8 cable, equivalant to your 1/2" cable. How about this-take that trap off and I could easily go through that 1/4 bend with a 7/8 cable. How well would your 3/4" cable do that?

      Yeah I think it's time for you to test drive a sectional machine. That trap is pretty much run of the mill for a 5/8" canle.

        Why would I use a 3/4 to clear a tub drain?

          What am I gonna do with the guide hose and extra cable? Snake it all around the bathroom when I could have a 1/2 cable contained in a small drum? Am I gonna have to hold that K-60 with one hand and try to feed the cable with the other and use my teeth to guide the cable to the drain opening?

          Sorry but I really feel that it`s much easer to do a tub with standing water with a drum machine.

            all clear, that is not a durham trap. it's a dwv copper trap.

            when we talk k-60, remember that the 5/8'' cable is 7.5' long. there is not too much left once you guide it into the overflow assy. the cable is so flexible that i actually loop it and hold it in my hand and allow it to spin.

            you really need to test it out as you have no first hand experience and just don't get it.

            so the roundup is going to be a real school lesson for you

            by the way, is that a 1.5'' trap or 2'' trap?

            what size cable and what cutter do you use on it?

            i would use my 5/8'' cable with a bulb auger head.

            i did make the mistake once and used 7/8'' with auger on a 2'' line with trap. who would have known the roof drain was 2'' and had a trap
            got it through and when it drained, i was surprised at what i saw.

              Really??? Are you sure

              1.5 and I use a drop bulb auger

              My 1/2 cable is very flexible. It`s like working with a soft spring

I've never disliked drum machines and I believe there is a place for them on a plumbing truck I just don't believe they are as versatile as a sectional machine.

                  mark, this guy is un-informed and is just playing with us.

                  the 5/16'' cable doesn't even have an interchangeable head or cutter.

                  of course he is not willing to put his money where his mouth is.

                  i'll be in san diego middle of may. if he's up to the challenge, i would love to get some gas money

                  please let me know so i can pack the goods. a perfect time since it will be at a ridgid sponsored tool open house.

                  he can also bring some cash to purchase the k-50 or k-60 once i show him the difference.

                    Rick you are wrong once again. I have a 5/16 cable that has 1", 2" cutters and bulb augers that screw to the end of the cable and it`s 50` long

                        Rick your clueless as Mark is. Typical plumber, knows everything.

                        Of course, if you knew how to use a drum machine properly you wouldn't need your silly sectional machines.

                        Oh yeah, I will be at the trade show this may.

                          I use the same cable with the same cutters

                            The funny part is between the two of us we have 65-years experience and have used and owned about every machine out there. Most of the skeptics out there do not own and have never even used the equipment.

                                we are talking ridgid products. not obscure useless cutters. what is the part # since i don't see it. all i see are a bulb auger and a drop head auger that don't unscrew

                                next your're going to say that your 5/16'' with 2'' cutters clears roots

                                why would you use a 5/16'' with 2'' cutter when you have a 1/2'' cable with 2'' cutter?
