So.....does anyone have any need for 17-Webkinz Adoption Certificates?

      No we're going to Disneyland, although Brenda was at DisneyWorld last month. I would scope out that park as well but Rick is too cheap to take his lovely wife there.

        For a novice and a guy on a budget the K400 will do what he needs so I stand by my first post.

        I know for a fact the K50 and the Spartan 81 ( I cut my teeth on Spartan machines) will do the job as well but I challenge anyone to find either one of these professional level machines for the price of the K400 ($430.00 @ Toolbarn)

            A used General Maxi Rooter would be a good roof machine ,as long as it's not over 3 stories ,and a 12/12 pitch with snow
            I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .

              lets see

              a tri stand vice, tubing cutter, propress, superfreeze, and k-60 just to make a milkshake.

              i would say that was a $7000. milkshake

              joey is into disney but not the rides. her cars license plate spells out mickey mouse pretty closely.

              just came back from magic mountain today. she was glad she didn't go.

                          Why is the K60 or K50 more difficult to use than the K400?

                            Anyway, I'm seriously considering purchasing the K400 due to budget reasons, and as Okie pointed out, I can get a new one for $430 at Tool Barn. I'm thinking that if I really need to take it on the roof, I can get some help from my son etc. I can't find any of the K60s K50s or other suggested mchs used right now, but I may wait a while and call a plumber for the time being. Someone suggested that I get a new plumber, so my wife's best friend's son-in-law is officially fired. He was not a master plumber and probably didn't have the best equipment, but he charged about the same. Anyone know of a good plumber in the New Orleans area?

                              it's not. i would have that machine on the roof by myself and finished before you could get someone to help you lug up a k-400.

                              the k-50 or 60 takes more skill to get efficent, but it's not rocket science.

                              plus a k-60 with 7/8'' innercore cable will cut roots in pipe up to 6'' or 4'' with standard cable. it also runs 5/8'' cable good for 1.25-3'' or 4'' with the heavy wind cable.

                              a k-400 will cut toilet paper in pipe up to 3'' with 3/8'' or 4'' with 1/2'' cable. no roots. was never designed to, but people will try

                              rick.

                              a good used k-60 with 75' of 7/8'' is worth around $800-1000. new is around 1600.

                                But I already have a K6200 with 5/8" cable. I used it when three houses flooded during Hurricane Katrina. One house that was built on 9' pilings (in Waveland, MS) got 25' of storm surge practically overtopping the roof and everything imaginable went into the drains. Since I already have a good K6200 do you think I need a K60? I'm mainly looking for a smaller cable to clean out inside lavatories and sinks. I may not need to get on the roof too often. However maybe I could sell my K6200 and get a K60. How much do you think I could get for it. It's about 12 yrs. old, I think, and works great.
