  • Looking to start drain cleaning business.

    Any suggestions on what tool would be reliable and user friendly for cleaning up to 4" sewer laterals. I have been in the sewer business working at municipal sewer plants and cleaning sewer mains with trailer mounted jetter. Would like to start my own business doing residential and business sewer cleaning. Have heard the k-1500 is a good tool. Thanks, nuggetherder

    K-1500 if most of your work will be from outside to street with yard cleanouts, if inside then the k-60 would be a good all around choice. K-7500 if you prefer drums.

                  Good deal but you would need to buy cutters and cable
