"found maindrainu clean out going thru 6ft off basement floor. "should have been my first clue" anyways put 3" cutter in toilet line was 4" went out 75' heard horrible rock and metal noise stopped auto feed stopped drum, drum beggins spinning backwards and horrible noise echos thru pipe. Tried hand retrjieving no luck, tried putting in reverse wand pulling no luck put machine in forward and tried auto retrieve well pulling no luck. Turn on walk outside can feel vibration in ground 65' past basement door, get metal detector follow line pin point end of cable begin digging.
