    Re: drum man coming out of the closet

    Mine is also blue but I bought it at Lows. I was needing a new cable for my 39 but they didn't have any 50` cable so I bought the little cobra machine so I could finish a job I was on. When the cable started rapping around my hand I knew right then this cable was crap....lol
    I found some good cable and have been using it ever since.

        Got a call from a catering company tonight. They had the main drain cleared two weeks ago by someone else and its backing up again. I'll be out there tomorrow morning.

        I am betting the 600 rpm K-60 7/8" cable will do a better job!

            If it's grease don't you need a jetter?

              Not always. The mushy soupy grease that collects in the dips are very tough but if you use the 4 bladed cutter, you can usually clean the line alright. The drum moves so slow it just kind of blends the grease. The sectional whips so fast that it churns the grease allowing it to be flushed. The open wind also acts as an Achemiades Screw which will help move things along further. No doubt that the jetter is the right tool that will clean the line but the k60 will still do a great job for a lot less money.

                  Yep, I will be using the 3" 4-blade grease cutter, and then flushing the line with a blow-bag....call it the poor man's jetter.

                    I think the new K-6200 has a new built-in torque limiter. My experience with the older models, well, I don't like them at all. The gear-driven drum machine breaks cables easily. But maybe with the new torque-limiter that won't be as much of a problem.

                      service guy, the blow bag puts out very little water. more of a pulse.

                      use an old washing machine hose with 1 end cut off and add a hose shut off at the connection to the main hose. this will allow you to flush with lots of water instead of a little squirt/ pulse. jetting is a volume thing. so is flushing. the more water, the more flushing. do this while you're snaking and control the water to keep from pulling out

                            Well, it wasn't a grease problem after all. It was a broken pipe, the K-60 cleared it fine, but they need to get the pipe repaired. I need to get a camera and locator soon, its hard to work without them once you get spoiled...as soon as I can afford it.
