    Has anybody ever stalled out a K1500 in a sewer? Had 15' section that just stalled it out and then it was clear sailing. The sewer was full of feminine products and grease.

    they make a 1hp hd model that should turn a cable into a pretzel. could be a long power cord, voltage drop too.

    at the roundup we drilled 3/4'' pine approx 3'' hole and the 3/4 hp machine would stall if loaded up. could also be the clutch is slipping and motor is still running.

      i've had it stall before. a short, heavy gauge extension cord was used. usually it was heavy roots or a broken pipe. one of three things would usually happen: nothing, it would let loose, or twist/break.

      ... it was plumbed by Ray Charles and his helper Stevie Wonder

        It was the factory cord plugged into the outlet, I will have to look at the clutch and see if it is slipping. Is it possible to just tighten up the clutch?

          Ditch the cable and get a "Rick Jetter". Blow anything to kingdom came and back again.

            If the clutch was slipping the jaws will have grooves cut into them. If that is the case call AJ Coleman and get a new set of jaws.
