The jobs I turned down were over the phone so the particulars were unknown then.
The Model C set up is here so I'm going to start soliciting more commercial work.
Average residential main lines run from 60 to 160' for me.
Lots of guys turn down anything over 100' so I get more of it.
Ran 165 footer this week with the Model C.
It's still a LOT of work clipping together that much 8 foot cable in a tight basement.
If it was easy everybody would do it.
As I said a jetter for me is unjustifiable.
What I wanted to tell you was this -The k-60 will work will in 6" pipe out 180' although that's pushing it.I try to stay within 120' if possible.If need be the 1500 or the jetter will do.While I do not travel to your state,most of the states around the country I have seen most lines seem to be within 150' in length. I'am sure your set up will work fine.
Back to the k-60,For years,I saw the ads in the Cleaner mags.,but would not purchase one.After coming off a ladder in 2002 and shattering an ankle,I purchased one as many times roof access is the is the way to go in my area.Now appx. 12 years later,I do not plan,and will not if possible be without one. The cables are stout enough to tackle most of what most drain cleaners will run into.
Have yet to see an outside clean-out on residential here in Minnesota.
A few in commercial.
Finding it in the snow could be interesting.
The k-60 works well in basements.We have them here in Mississippi.When our path takes us to Chicago,St.Louis,Witicha,etc;I have carried mine along and unclogged family members who had been told they had collasped lines or some such,It has always been root/grease buildup.most of the time within 1 hour.If you have or can rent/borrow, one try it.It might become a starter member on your go to starting tool lineup.
