    Actually I was wondering if that square on his roof was a repair after one of those drive-thru in town he now knows he doesn't fit under.

      ben, that big blue square is actually a portion of the american flag.

      after 9/11, joey and i hand made a 8' x 12' flag on top of my truck. we used colored vinyl hand cut and spaced to scale. the stars were hand cut with a cookie cutter as a pattern.

      from a house, you could typically see the flag as the truck would be parked in the street.

      from a building, it stands out nice. the red has faded over the years and i still have a roll of red i can re-cut.

      if the truck ever came up missing, it would be easy to spot from the air.


      joey actually climbed a ladder to help on top of my truck that's 9'2'' high.

      first and last time joey climbed on top of my truck.

          actually what you don't really see is a 7'' back up monitor and a gps.

          the white blob is a hat and there are a couple of safety/ sun glasses too.

          no parts to fly and smack you

          there are a couple of parking permits for buildings too.

          how much did you zoom in


          My sewer machine works good and I should get a jetter instead of a K60, but dang does that thing look handy. I could see just from the weight issue it could be my machine of choice.
          a jetter from the roof could be messy. with roots, you need a decent gpm. since there should should be a person inside the house to monitor the flow or lack of flow, you could get in trouble by yourself.

          a ground level c/o would be better for a jetter in this case.

          a k-60 in the truck will make all your drum machine jealous. you probably will have to let the k-60 ride in the front seat with you

          same reason why my k-60 is sharing the hotel room with me at the roundup

          marks roundup preperation video explains it all.

              the trick is to not let the cable hang over the edge of the roof. this can damage the edge metal flashing or leading edge of the shingle.

              95% of my sectional jobs don't require a guide hose.

              it's the ivy or plants that you have to be careful with.

              if i need the guide hose, it's slows me down 30 seconds a section, coming and going each way. plus the trip to carry it up and down.

                  i would answer that, but you need to check with the other rick

                  otherwise you might think that i can be at 2 places at 1 time.

                  on my jobs, if i don't need a guide hose, i don't use one. as long as there are no wires, plants, ivy, or anything else that can get grabbed or dirty, i avoid it.

                  on the 5/8'' cable that's 7.5' long, i use a 5 gallon bucket if need be. but typically i use my hand to keep it off the floor indoors.

                    so yes, you have a big heavy machine to go along with a bad back.

                    and i have a machine that 1 person can take on a roof, run out as much cable as i need and finish before you can drag that machine up and down. not to mention how you keep it from rolling off the roof with the drum spinning.

                    how do i know this

                    my spartan 300 is sitting outside in my shed.
                    never made it to the shop

                    but then again you don't know as you've never owned a k-60.

                    rick.
                    Yeah but the Spartan 300 does a much better job than any sectional machine.

                        you continue to think that way,

                        while the rest of us have a good laugh.

                        too bad you won't be at the round up.

                        i let you prove it to me as we cut 1x6 boards with the 1500 sectional machine.

                          well my K-7500 does a much better job than any sectional machine and when I want to cut 1x6 boards I use my saw
                          ROTFLMAO

                          BTW...Rick we can now get our old cable I just ordered a new cable with the Teflon Inner Core but I got my eye on the Wire Inner Core. They cut me a deal to try the Teflon first.

                              One step at a time! I am glad he has on gloves and glasses.

                              Those aren't Red Wings though-he doesn't own any. They are Merrill's

                                I'm still trying to figure out how he conned Joey into getting on the roof to take the picture.
