I got one (3" version) and it was expensive ($185.00). It does work well, however, it is tough to turn at the bottom of a clean-out, and Plumber Rick is right, if you have a mass of roots, tough to get to pass. 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!)
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!
Poor Planning On Your Part Does Not Constitute An Emergency On My Part!! You can fire me...but you can't tell me what to do! Derek
