    carl, i can't picture 5/8'' cable in your 380 machine.

    the specs state 100' of 3/8'' or 75' of 1/2'' cable.

    how do you clean 1.5'' and 2'' with a 5/8'' drum cable?

    why not just install 3/8'' and clean the 1.5'' and 2'' sink lines with that

    use the k-60 for 2- 4''.

    if you replace the cable, you might actually have better luck with it

    just a thought.

    but i still love the idea of getting 5/8'' sectional for your k-60

      Good point Rick, maybe getting 3/8" cable for my drum would help. But the other benefit to scrapping the drum machine, and replacing it with a coil of smaller sectional cable would be added space to my van!
      The bucket idea is growing on me...the main reason I like the K-380 is the drum contains the mess....but its nasty to clean. I like like the idea of taking the sectional cable out and inot a bucket and then hosing it off outside...easy cable maintenance.

      Quick question....can the 5/8" open wind sectional cable maneuver 1.5" drains turns? And what about 1.5" galvanized?

        had i known about the k-60, 8 years ago before i bought my gmc w4500 tilt cab, i would have kept my 3500 van. sectionals don't take up that much room and the k-60 does 90% of my work.

        you will need to spin the cable as needed to help remove the sections. pull until it's tight and then disconnect and thread into the jaws to spin for a second. remove and pull.

        1.5'' is no problem with the auger head, bulb head and even the 4 blade head. durham 90's are tight, but 1 of those heads will fly.

        if you mean a 1.5'' gal. water 90, no. nothing will turn in a water 90. it needs to be a sanitary sweep.

        i will give you a big life saver.

        cut the end off 1 of your sectional cable male/ pin ends 6'' from end. this will then allow you to make a 7' long auger end. run the cable in reverse to create the cutting action and forward to slip. remember the cable is wound opposite the auger cutters.

        this trick is the best unknown one i have. it's the lifesaver on my 7/8'' cable for nasty 2'' lines.

        don't share with anyone else or they will be the king of nastyness
