    Better have a motor that I can change the brushes on or I won't buy one.

      I will admit now I am looking to buy either 3 spartan 100's or 3 ridgid K-50's maybe a combination. My guy I send on sinks and tubs is really going thru my top gun snakes because the k-60 is too heavy ...lol I know what he does when I am not around, and if I catch him with a hammock in his van again......

        How new and improved can it be? What features would make it better?

          I'm excited to see the K-45

          The K-39AF was a complete failure for me. I have a rebuilt K-38 that clears Lavs and tubs for me but it is at least 25 years old.

          I use a K-400 for kitchen sinks..

          Is the spartan 100 still made in the USA? I think all Spartan machines are now made in China. (Nothing against China since I love fried rice and all but I gotta support the USA)

              -Quick change drums for loading different cables (get rid of those damn screws)
              -A motor that will last
              - Optional Stand to give me a free hand for better cable management
              - A built in LED light
              - Pistol grip Autofeed
              - Fully adjustable RPM ( via seperate dial not the trigger)

              Give me a few I will think of more

                    If their made in China now and labor is like 50 cents an hour. Then why are the products even more expensive.
                    If their going to take are jobs at least drop the price of the products.

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

                      If you want to be ahead of the game learn an African language

                      Mark my words in 10 years we will hear China moaning about loosing all of it's great manufacturing jobs to Africa.

                      Africa is the last bastion of human squalor available for exploitation....

                      I bet Darfur will be a great place once they are making the next "Snuggie" and have a Starbucks...

                            Yes but the K45 is new and shiny the K60 is old hat.

                              Agreed. And now they are just another company to me in this regard. I WILL find out where competitive quality/priced products that aren't sold at home centers are manufactured. That will be what I consider first.

                              Anyone know where the sink machines are built by:

                              Electric Eel
                              General Wire
                              Spartan
                              Gorlitz
                              Mytana
                              etc.???????

                              Thanks.
