You just take the K-7500 and flip the stair climber to the raised position then lay it on its back...
You'll have about 3' of cable out which I consider just about right...
Was looking for a more lazy way of doing things.
So far the easiest way for me on this set up is the drum or 1 1/4 eel 8 foot sections with drill for some of those hard to reach for the drum.
Walk up to clean out toss a few sections of eel cable hook up drill done
I'll keep my eye out for a k-60 on ebay or something some basements are very low and may come in handy there. Trying to justify buying VS how many times I may use it.
I Don't use the k 60. I use the k 50. When I have an over head clean out. I will use one of my 2 small step ladders. place the machine on the top. bungee cord it down. than I will use scrap 1.5 inch pvc about 3 feet long on both ends of the machine, to keep the cable from going everywhere.
My helper just gave me this to make our lifes easier http://www.lowes.com/pd_47316-12223-...rea1-_-19611_4
I hold the cable with both hands and operate the K-60 with my foot. We have a lot of high sewers and septic lines at that level and after you get a feel of using the machine at that level its not that bad.

I cannot recommend this as the safest way to do things. But I have a Little Giant ladder copy. I've put it at the height I want and set the machine on top.
i do the same thing, but i use the real little giant and a work platform that snaps onto the rungs. a ratchet strap will hold the machine exactly where you want it. done it many times and never lost a machine or cable
plus if it's only 8' or less, i usually can just set the machine on a rolling trash can lid and be just a few feet away. cable control is very simple and safe with the clutch.
look at the timberwolf, i'm always 10+' away at certain times.
You could run it through the machine backwards and use the rear guide hose in a pinch
i've done that.
i keep a couple of 4' lengths of 2" & 3" with 45s 90s to make a snoot. also works well in a manhole situation
normally if i can't get easy access to the CO i bring in the K-75. it's on wheels and is easy to manuever in most situations. while i'm glad i got the 60 (great backup if the 75 or 50 go down) it's not my go to machine
