    I think he should watch one in action It isn't like a drum.

    Hey Rick I was standing outside the plumbing supply house today telling a guy why he should buy a K60. I am a realist. K60's work great but you will hear the good and the bad from me it is only a piece of plumbing equipment I don't care about hurting a K60's feelings.

I am still not sold on the k60. After hearing all the good things here im guessing its something i'm doing. Any tips or look for it to be up for sale here soon.
      You couldn't give me a k60....too much hand work with the cable and stopping to add cable. I think the K7500 is a better all around machine for cleaning mains.

        Where do you plan on putting a 7500.I've seen your rig.It won't fit..Maybe...If you get rid of the three inch PVC DWV fittings

            Hey I like my rig without a sewer machine all the time. Nothing worse than wasting time with a machine that "might" work when you have a big boy type machine that will do the job more times than not. I really dont carry any 3" dwv fittings....just a coupling and a couple cleanouts. I put things on the truck and off the truck on a daily basis,I make a list of what I want done and leave in on my apprentices seat in the van. He stocks the truck and cleans it everyday and somtimes twice a day. He does what I tell him to do without question......which is almost priceless when you think about it.

                Yes I had a great day. Started out replacing a waste/overflow and p-trap. Break the slab and replace it all. Then I cleaned a couple K-sink drains from the roof. Those two k-sink calls were about one mile apart. Nice. Then I went to install a burner assembly in a whirlpool water heater and vaccum it.

                    I would think that cod are a bit large for the K-60, maybe crappie

                        now i know if you want to sell it, there will be a bidding war. and i don't like second

                        the proper cutters are the key to success.
