  • My Spartan bailed out my K-60....again.

    Not sure what's wrong with my (used K-60 good shape) Couple of things; One, ever since I got it, the forward/reverse switch is backward, no big deal but strange. Two, when i'm pulling out in reverse, it just doesn't seem to have the same power as going in. Infact it will bog down to a certain point and switch directions atomanically. It will go back and forth several times if i'm stuck. A couple of times the cable got totally stuck, so I made an adapter to fit my Spartan 300 cable onto the sectional cable and got the sectional out with the Spartan 300 machine. I really like the machine for the roofs but do not like getting stuck. Oh yeah,this was with a small sharktooth cutter. Any ideas? Belt maybe needs adjustment or replacement? New machine time?

    Just asking here but you know the cable feeds in from the smallest part of the handle side right? The end with the grab handle is the entry point. If you are putting the cable thru the right way then someone may have wired it up wrong
    And also I never use reverse unless totally stuck, when I bring the cable out it is in forward maybe thats why you are having problems. If using reverse with the 7/8th cable it will wrap up inside the pipe. The biggest secret in using the K-60 is to just slap down on the handle real fast for just a second to get the cable to jump or find it's way this also works for getting unstuck in forward or maybe for a second in reverse.

          By the K-60's design nature it has to come to a full stop to even change direction, you must completly stop the motor to even use the reverse switch or else it keeps going in it's current rotation.

            I dont use the reverse on mine much at all. That the best part about the K60 simple power!
