    Re: K1500 vs General Rodrunner

    Model 82, 88 does have an adjustable torque limiter. I believe its factory set to 100 inch pounds to start. I tightend mine up more.

    Still a proper jetter will open a line that all else fails.

      The rodrunner does have an adjustable clutch on it.

        I have expirence with both machines. The specs are similar but to me the results vs. labor is not.
        The rodrunner needs more space to be effective, yet the 1500 will eat through anything in its path with limited space. Overgrown yards and bad landscaping will have you realizing this in no time with the rodrunner.
        In my opinion given the options it's a no brainer to go with the 1500.

          But the rodrunner can be setup like the 1500 and used stationary too.

            I asked Marv at AJ Coleman once about the rodrunner. He had nothing good to say about it. I think he said it was a PITA to repair. the 1500 is pretty versatile. I have the drill and eel and I would rather run the 1.25" cable in a 1500 with higher rpm. If I want torque, I'll stick with the drill. I really wish I hadn't sold my 1500.....oh well

                I have been doing service plumbing and drain cleaning for 35 years
                and Ive never seen a service truck with a General road runner,,,
                Lots of Spatan,Gorlitz,Ridgid and Electric Eel,,,but never a General mainline machine,,,
                The General top snake with that 4 lobe Jacobs chuck is OK but thats about it,,,,,

                  Did you keep the K1500 or Rodrunner? Or did you keep both or get rid of both?

                      Never seen the rodrunner in person, but I think I would have done the same thing. The K1500 is a nice machine, Rodrunner looks like it would be versatile, but do nothing that well.

                      Didn't General make a K1500 clone?
