  • Clean auger

    Does your auger come back clean often when you run cable in a backup and you get the the water to drain?

    I do and it makes me worry sometimes that I should be hooking more junk.

      Re: Clean auger

      If I`m using an auger it`s to clear build-up and it should come back clean as build-up dosen`t stick to an auger like roots or white mice

        Do squirrels stick to an auger?

        Does Ridgid market a "Squirrel Auger"? Model SQ-A-101?

            Steve, The K-7500 (with 3/4 cable and auto-feed) is bad to the bone! I am glad you inspired me to get one as it is my favorite toy now!!! Definitely my BEST tool. I love using it, and so far I haven't encountered ANYTHING it couldn't get through!

              Obviously it didn't come back "clean" that day.

                Now all you need is a cordless like mine and you can get rid of the K-60

                  SG, for me that's been the grab of the year with the "squirrel hunt" coming a close second.

                    Yeah, but the K-60 can cut roots out of sewers, etc. Honestly, if I could use the 7500 on every sewer job, I WOULD!!! It is so much easier and better than a sectional. BUT, the K-60 is far more portable and so I keep it around for some jobs, I won't be trading it in anytime soon.

                            JC,

                            i can only remember 1 time i hooked and pulled the bockage out of the WC.

                            a young lady figured she could flush a folded napkin.

                            it literally swelled right up and completely blocked the WC.

                            i think the only reason i was able to hook it was because it was locked in place.

                            Vince

                            i ended up pulling the WC off the floor and removed by going backwards up through the trap. when it finaly let go, the auger head slapped the bowl and sparked. no $h!t.

                              Thats quite a haul! What inspired the spring retriever Vs. blades or the pig tail retriever?
