    Which make/model are you talking about ?

      I know my Marco LT1000 will hurt you real fast if you are not careful. All drain cleaning machines have their dangers, just some more so than others.

        My Spartan 300 spins @ 300rpm and my Spartan @ 290rpm.

        Yes there is a difference in the way the Model C and 1500 were designed to operate but IMO keeping the bit spinning is much more important running sectional cable, speed is king.
        I think you are asking to get your arms ripped off with those high speed drills. If I want High speed, I'll use my R750 and operate safely. 600 RPMS in your hands with no clutch is a recipe for disaster. Cutting out roots with a 1500 at high speeds is a completely different handling than the eel.

          Anything's possible but if I didn't feel comfortable doing so I would not be doing it.

            Anything's possible but if I didn't feel comfortable doing so I would not be doing it. I'm now using this setup on around 40% of my main line calls.

              Yes, though the E-clutch is what has always saved my A$$ when I jammed it up.

              A Timberwolf also has a mechanical slip clutch in low does it not???

                I like being there hero, and I have many stories to impress. But not like you morons using drills hooked to cables to open blockages. Lol
                There's studly and stupid. I think you guys are stupid and asking for it.
                I got a full line up of gorlitz for drains. A camera and a jetter. If these are used correctly I can safely accomplish what you idiots are doing with these drills.
                Sometimes I think the roots are easier to cut in the other part of the country but rick is in on this. So that's that. I could do what you other imbeciles are doing but I want to assure my chances of being able to hit and see a tennis ball as I grow older. Go ahead you brainless studs and be careful. Lol.

                  It is a power tool so the dangers are inherent. I figure I'm not touching the cable, I'm behind the cable not on the side of it,

                  I try to use the drill set up on all my main drain calls, so far so good

                    Mytana M81. low speed high torque. the drum doesn[t slow down the machine shows know sign of being over torqued except for what the cable is doing. worst of all the reverse switch can't be reached with your foot. .

                      The M81 is a beast. It wouldn't go down many basements around here unless it was disassembled. I sometimes have trouble or cannot get my 300 down some of these tight wicked stairs. Then there are the hoarders

                        I have a GO68HD and it is by far the most dangerous sewer machine on the market and it's not even close. It's dangerous to use, and dangerous to move....

                        Drill and Eel is maybe the safest mainline machine to use outside of the Model C.

                          Yes it's only in low speed. With the Drill and Eel though you would use the high speed setting, only the low speed

                              Cuz it's what I grew up on.
                              Out here on the correct coast in the concrete jungle with virtually no basements it just makes sense I guess.

                                Move? If u got a bad back I guess.
                                Dangerous if you jam it in and hope.
