          Let me know what you think of the CT. As you know I opted for the K-40B which Marv gave me a great deal on, and I love it. What I like about the CT that I noticed is that is has a variable speed control, which comes in real handy.

            Eel puts out great products. Let us know what you think of them after a few uses

              I used the CT a few times last week , and it was nice to be able to slow it down to work thru the lavs
              Here is a pic of the extra climmers i put on the D5.. At 21 1/2" wide it can go inside sometime

                Them there are some sweet machines. Always eyeballed them everytime I went to AJ Coleman's. The extra stair climbers, did you put them on yourself? Was it an option by Eel?

                    I just got my k750 just a kollmann not an eel anyways ordered a trap leader but the only 2 strap cleaners are 3" and 3.5" the hollow core cable I got says don't use on three inch traps I was under the impression you always used 1" smaller tool then the pipe what tool do you use for 3" traps if the smallest trap tool they make is 3" . 2" spade cutter maybe 2" double cutter?

                      I love my CT, its the only drum machine I still use. The auto feed works great plus I love that it has an adjustable speed.

                        I do like some of their stuff as well, but very very difficult to get a Rep on the phone.

                        Love the colors of your drum machine....have fun with it.

                          I have run a N for 21 years and a D for 10
                          They get the job done and parts are just a phone call away
                          We had the new D5 in a 22" door opening yesterday to cut out a root under the slab

                            One of the calls my son and I had today
                            He had the N in the kitchen clout , i had the CT in the trap arm and met him
                            Then he ran the D5 in the sewer while i hit the shower with the CT
                            The CT is real handy rig
