  • New Drum Design???

    Is this a new drum design? What's your opinion of this design?

    Thanks.

    I don't care for it, too many parts and the drum capacity is only 50'. I see it taking up more room with all the extra drums and you spending time switching them out more than drain cleaning.
    Buy cheap, buy twice.

      It looks like coupling a new drum on is a breeze as long as you have a nice level and even surface on the job.

        I used the same machine before I got the 7500 Ridgid it had plenty of power like the 7500 but it kept shaking all the screws lose. I put some bigger wheels on to make it roll better. I bought it off E-bay for $ 50.00 with cable used it for two years till I got the money and guts to buy a Ridgid I just used the general as a trainer to learn how a drum would work for me I still keep it as a back up a long with an old Marco with open cage. But I like the stair climber my Marco don't have them I traded sewer cleaning jobs for the Marco the guy who bought it at a sale and took it home and found out he didn't know how to work it.

          Every main I run into is over 50' in this neck of the woods.A drum for 100' and a quick way to put on 50 more feet would be useful here.

            What about The company in your home town? I can switch my Mytana drums out easy enough, I run 125' of cable in a drum with no binding at all. That usually gets me far enough but I do keep an extra 90' in a drum just encase.

              I love the Mytana style for that!Those cages can be swapped in no time!
              I think I have had as much as 150' in one (Long time ago,there was a good reason though!) My regular machine is a 7500.I purchase all my cables from them.I have been going to them since they were located 1/4 mile east of their fancy new building.
              (Which they have been in for some time!)
