    P.S. That could also be his rapping name. "DJ BigPillow & the K-60 Posse".

      That must have been that new Ridgid loose-wound stretch cable . . .

        Get it? You gave a tip and got a tip?
        No matter what happens Rick, remember this, you're funnier than Leonard, wait, I think it's Jack, oh well, you know what I mean.

          Nothing is that big If you find a sudden run on Ebay of drain cleaners and Ridgid tools you'll know something must have happened to Rick.

                actually 103' into the line and 2' in the k-60



                herk, maybe i forgot to mention i carry 210' of 7/8'' in the truck. 150' is regular hollow core and 60' is innercore. i keep 90' in the carrying cage as that's the limit. then i have a second cage (180') plus 2 loose sections (30') not to mention all the 5/8'' and 1.25'' i carry. plus the multiple rolls of k-39 cable

                i then followed this job up with another 6'' line to 120'. 3 miles from there.

                so the k-60 had a nice little work out along with me

                    Oh, shoot. I knew there'd be a rational explanation.

                    I figure if I run into a line that takes more than my 150', it's time to sell a cleanout. I'm already trying to decide on the next purchase and haven't even had a job for the K-60 yet. What happened to all the calls I was getting?

                      It`s just that time of year when drain cleaning slows down in a month or so you have your chance

                        Do your regular customers know you can do this kind of work?

                          They're learning slowly. I put it on my website and immediately printed a mess of cards with Drain Cleaning added. I'm spreading the word. In addition, before I bought the machine, I was telling people who called that I would soon be cleaning drains again.
