        depending on the condition of the line/ stopped up or just maintenance?

        if the line is not backed up, then a jetter could be the easiest as you're not hauling anything big or heavy into the basement. plus the hose will self feed and you're not fighting a cable. this is great as long as you're not stopped up and you don't flood the place.

        assuming the line is plugged up. i've had good luck with my k-60 strapped onto a ladder or the work platform of the little giant.

        but in a true full 6'' stoppage, i would attack it with my 1.25'' sectional cable and timberwolf drill. i let the cable lay in the pipe hangers and it will self feed into the drain. i do this on a project monthly with 6'' pipe.

        of course a drum machine on the floor requires 250# to be rolled downstairs and back up. along with having to run a guide hose from the machine to the 8' mark. it can be done and that's what i used to do on overhead c/o's. now i do it with the jetter, k-60 or timberwolf

          Use a jetter, hire a company that has a large enough one if you do not.

            I'd use whatever machine I had, it's not worth buying a machine for one job.
