    Been there, done that, moved on.......

    Why fight a root infested line for hours on end with the possibility of getting stuck, breaking or flipping a cable when I can almost always tear it up in no time with my 1.25" cable

    Nicely done.

    What kind of jetter specs?

    Thanks.

    Very nice catch but the root mass must have been fairly lose. Although the 300 with the .55mag is an excellent medium duty machine I will not knowingly put it in any 6" line with roots or a root packed 4" line. Bad things can & will happen.

    Majority of them are 6". I've come across a handful that are 4". 5 minutes of cabling and 90 minutes of the Bosch will surely make you sweat. Jetted it twice last week from another cleanout 100' away and couldn't put a dent in it. Cleaned up nice though today with the jetter.

    Nice catch. Aren't your saddles 6" in Pasadena? Out here everything from property line out is 6".

    Lots of sweat for 5 minutes on a 74 degree day. Must have been the 60# bosch hammer.

    I see you have a photo crew too.

    Rick.
