I must be doing it all wrong. when I get to a job I check every thing out, see which machine I need then when I start to bring the machine in, the home owner tells me I don't need the machine just the cable because the last guy that was there two weeks ago just used the cable. he said it would cost a lot more if he had to hook the machine to it. I explain that I really have to use the motor or I will be back in two weeks too. At that time they start thinking I am scamming them, Then when I put the cutter on I hear the other guy didn't use any he just used the cable I explain why I use a cutter and why I pull it out and use a bigger cutter by this time I am the biggest con artiest there ever was. I have also pulled up to customers houses and they have a sink drain machine setting there with a 1/2 " cable that they rented to clean there 4" main line and they want me to use it as it is already set up and they just need me to get it unstuck then finish cleaning the line with it to save money. They would but they just got back from the doctor because the cable broke there little finger when it caught there wool glove. Of course there yard is full of trees. On these I call the rental place first and get them out there before I will touch it, I don't want to pay for there cable if it breaks so I can get it out to run my big cable in. Have I missed something are the little cable and there machine that much stronger then they were ? all the drain cleaners around here are switching to the 380 with 1/2' I would be scared sh_t less to tackle an unknown clog with 1/2 " in 3" to 6 " line.
No announcement yet.
