  • My K 39AF

    Just picked up my K 39AF and I think it is pretty nice. Already had a snack on a tub drain today. My only dislike is it did not come with a carrying case, which I will have to come up with. Do most of you find that a 25' cable is enough for 95% of the jobs for it?

    25' will get you about 20' in with the auto feed. if need be, a cordless drill will get the last 5' with care.

    35' will give you 30' plus the 5' with a drill.

    remember that the longer cables weigh more and a 5/16'' cable will be useless in 2'' without cutters. sure it will grab hair, but grease and buildup requires cutters or a jetter.

    for a lav sink or tub/shower it's fine. on 2'' shower traps i use the 5/8''.

    on a kitchen or laundry, i break out the 5/8'' sectional with cutters and go to town.

    the 5/8'' will easily navigate a 2'' trap.

    on 1.5'' it's k-39 time

    they can be ordered with a case. i find useless and too bulky.

      How do you transport your K39?

      I will mainly use it for lavs, tubs, laundry tubs and kitchen sinks.

        normally a 5 or 3.5 gallon bucket with my rags, sponge, channel locks and if need be a flouresent light/ extension cord. all the goodies you need to clean a drain and clean up afterwards

                  you're suppose to empty the bucket first

                  glad you didn't bring in the brown bucket

                    i store mine in the metal "toolbox" it came with. pull it out for jobs and put it back after cleaning up. it doesn't roll around is more secure than in a bucket.

                    just my $.02 before taxes
