      I see problems when it hits an offset.

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

        Especially if you have some roots wrapped up on it.

          For the money you can't beat Electric eel's expander blades they can get by offsets and reset after getting past an offset.

Having said that, it is a great clean-up cutter and I don't regret it. Can't say I justify the cost, but nothing ventured, nothing gained! Hope this helps! FYI--I use the Ridgid K-7500 but I like General Wire Cables and Cutters better. (I can just hear all the Ridgid drain cleaners now!)
            WOW...185

            I see a problem if you use it in orangeburg


            Hey I`m using the General cable in my cordless sink machine and was wondering about trying some 3/4 IC in my K-7500 as my ridgid cable is just not holding up.

              All Clear Sewer: I put a Ridgid anchor in my K7500, then I take a one foot Ridgid leader and cut off the female end...then take a general wire cupped female adapter and have a welder weld it in place...grind the edges down...then attach a 100 foot general wire 3/4" i.c. cable. I clean at least two sewers a day and I replace my cable about once a year. I just don't like how the Ridgid 3/4" cable runs...I will say that in my smaller Ridgid machines I still use Ridgid cables....so I'm not a total traitor!
