    this reads kinda like a telegraph message.

    can you try again a little slower? we might be able to help then.
    No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

      - K-60 w/ 150' of 7/8" OW cables

      -Use Guide Tube that comes with machine

      -plastic drop cloths with canvas over them

      - K-39 AF w 35' 5/16" bulb head as a hand held

      What do you want to do with the jetter? Roots or just soft stoppages?

      For roots go 5 gpm or better and use Root Ranger (4 gpm) or Warthog.

      Alot of us do not have jetters yet and still manage to clear drains (not as clean as a jetter though)

          With the k-60 inside I use 1 1/2" and 3" abs pipe, the smaller if there is a doorway or tight turn and turn the cable in it. If I have room I use a 3" section to hold multi sections at a time to keep mess down then plug ends and go outside with it.

            I have finaly figured this out. the post should read as follows.

            I am 59 and do not want to carry/ drag a 270 lb drum maching down basement stairs.
            I am looking for a machine with the capacity of 100'-150'.
            I also need a "drain gun" type machine.
            Money is tight.
            I would like input on designing the best way to put my sectional cables in a motor cycle tire.
            What kind of drop clothes are you guys using. What do you cover your work area with? what are your thoughts on using a roll of rubber roffing to cover the work ares.
            Do you guys think a jetter is a good choice for me.
            I only plan to open 4 inch and under soft stoppages.

            BTW. My son figured this out has part of his English home work.
