  • Spartan 600

    So how many of you remember this machine? I have one in my garage that I forgot I had till today. I need to get a new drum for it. I will post some pictures this weekend.

    It is basically like a 100 1/2" drum in a frame but the cable passes through the handle of the motor then through the motor out a chuck. The motor can be removed from the frame and held close to the point of rodding, leaving cable between you and the machine. It takes some practice using it. I was told it was real popular on the east coast.

          Notice how the cable is stored in the drum, and passes through the drill. It had 1/2" cable in it, I changed it out to 13/32 cable yesterday.

            Looks like a big waffle maker.

                I like it for those 2" clean outs in the raftors while on a ladder. Is yours the old grey machine like mine, or is it the newer spartan green? They made this unit till around 1990.

                      Mine's Spartan green. I have no idea how old ours is though. My dad said 70's probably. My only beef with it is that the drill is pretty darn heavy. You're definitely right about it being good for up on ladders when you need more medium cable than the K-39 can hold.
