          I run the DM-55 love the machine. Their cable is not the greatest. But their machines can be put through hell.
          Have one of the original Vikings this guy is at least 25 years old and is just now starting to give up. To bad no replacement parts.
          I'm in no way defending RR corp. I really hate them on a personal & business level. But they do make good tuff machines.

          Charging less does not mean more call volume it just means you have to work harder to reach your goals.

            Roto-Rooter has the same machines DuraCable sells but they get them in blue. If you remember a while back someone posted a blue K-750 on eBay with a Cobra sticker on it. I'm fairly certain that was a hot Roto-Rooter machine.

              Yes 100% correct their machines are painted blue accept the old Vikings
              They paint the machines blue so to match how you feel when you get your check at the end of the week Nickel and dimed me to death
              Did I forget to mention I hate RR.
              Maybe just maybe I like to beat the azz with better service with thier own equipment.

                  I still have a model 55 oto-ooter , that my dad bought 2nd hand in the late 70's. The machine is indestructable. the down sides : 1) no reverse,2) their are very few repair parts available. the power switch is no longer avilable , but if you take a commercial grade light switch and cut the ears off it fits and works wonderfully. HE didnt buy the power feed , so I have shoulders that are pretty well worn out by now. God I LOVE MY POWER FEED!!!!!

                    jw3 . Gorlitz or Manta have replacement parts that will fit.
                    I am in the process of rebuilding a similar machine like that myself

                      say handy, thanks for the info. I hardly ever use this machine,but it is always there when one of my much newer units craps the bed. The shame of it is the bottom of the frame is starting to rust out. I might start a restore project so when I do bring it out of retirement it doesn't look like the tail end of hard times.
