    I breakdown on the blanket. Take the cage out last with the blanket folded around it. No problems/drips yet.

      For sectional drain cleaning, I carry cloth drop cloth runners on my truck. I believe they are 12-footers so I can have them anywhere from 2' long to 12' long depending on how much I unfold. I put the cable cage behind the machine and the guide hose in a large U-shape around the cage and then back to the machine. I hand feed as much cable as possible straight from the cage until I need the machine then add one cable at a time using the machine. There is a little learning curve but you'll get it before long.

      Good luck-Mark

            If I am not mistaken, Plumberjr owned a K-1500 before his K-6200, and his new K-60 is replacing his old K-50 so I think he has been pretty open minded so far. However, asking him to turn Liberal may be a stretch.

              the bucket only works on 5/8'' cable. 7/8'' is too long and stiff.

              did a second floor laundry drain today with the bucket. no mess and the cable starts in the bucket, and when returns to the bucket when finished.

              the machine sits on top of the elevated washer with a yoga mat to protect the machine.

              lets see the 6200 run a 5/8'' cable with auger down a 2'' laundry standpipe with trap to clear the stoppage 28' down.

                  Rick I take it you mean by protecting the machine you mean protecting the mighty K60 not the washing machine.

                    notice i said 5/8'' cable. since i also own a few or more k-50's i tend to use the 50 for the 5/8'' cable. it's lighter and spins slower for the 5/8'' cable.

                    i'll use the 60 on 5/8'' cable when i already have it out for 7/8'' and need to do more lines with 5/8''. such as on a roof down vents.

                    the k60 is great for do all machine. but if you do own a k-50 it's lighter to use and less powerful for the smaller cables.

                    bill/ plumbercrack is known to run drum adapters (5/16'', 3/8'') in the k-60.

                    now that would be good to see on video.

                        I tried making a guide hose to hold 3 sections of 5/8 cable but I used the wrong stuff I couldn't pull 22.5' of cable through it easy. I'll try some other materials for guide hoses. If that doesn't work then I'm going with 4 seperate guide hose's loaded before I walk in the house.
