            Makes me wonder how many jobs we lose to the rental machines and HD selling cheap machines?
            Good job on showing them up and getting free lunch to boot

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

                As far as I know, HD only rents General stuff....but maybe that's just here in LA?

                  I see a mix of Eel, General and Ridgid machines in the rentals at the HD.

                      The HD people I talk to around here said the eel machines are holding up better and thats what they are ordering now and they are phasing out genarel

                        Post Plumber, Good job!!!!

                        Is that a version of the fabled reverse auger?

                            T-125 Retrieving Auger came with my kit when I got my K-60 but looking over it again it might be the T-102 funnal auger

                              Gotcha , Yeah I love it when my pals get a drain cleaning job.Head to the local rental shack for a drum machine . Can't get and have to call me I make it happen ,bill them and they lug their renta crap back to hd or wherever . I always wonder how they make any money playing all those silly a** games.I tell em' theres no way I would go through all that for what it pays. And just to call me when they get a drain job ..
