    What about mainline roofs? Spartan 300? I use to do that and still have nightmares about it. LOL. Now it's K-sissy time for the roofs.

      Use my 300 all the time , back to back toilets no prob. I have the machine on the ground and 110 ft of .55 cable in the drum. Most of our jobs it 50 to 75 ft to the City sewer from the house.

        I took both my 1065 and 300 off the van. The K-60 all around, is so much better. Roofs, stairs, limited access ect. Always gets the drain open. Easily too. Inside a house, you got me there. The 300 is easier, don't do many inside mainlines though.

          That is 100% accurate. I have an old Spartan autofeed that I am going to mount to my speedrooter. Just have to fab up a mounting plate, but it is on a long list of projects that may never get done!
