    The K60 is a bit more versatile though being able to switch back and forth from 5/8 to 7/8 cable. Parts are the easiest to get too.

        I have. Obviously it has to be paper related to have much success.

          Some paper blockages can be a PITA

            Yeah, if it's long, clingy, and/or sludgy. I've got some open with the N and then take a look inside. Then sometimes have to go to something else to get it all moving out.

                  Just got off the phone with them. The usa rep is located in chicago. Boy are they behind in their local dealers. They list many local dealers in the LA area of which some have been out of business well over 10 years.

                  But the cs rep in chicago told me the last r750 they sold in the usa was in 2008 and the list price was $2000. If they had multiple orders, they can bring them in.

                  The k1500 has similar spec's in a more stable platform. With dealers and parts across the country.

                    I even had a R-75 still have the motor and other random parts from it. It took a dive off a roof and cracked the frame in half. Here is a picture what is supposed to look like

                        I use a k-50 with 5/8 cable loose wound cable. I love this machine. Both trucks carry one with the bulb attachment for smaller drains. Use it to go down washing machine p-traps and every once in a while I will run it down through the toilet. We also have a 1500 for bigger jobs. I love the sectional machines. I had several drums before. Used a 380 machine and a older drum machine that about beat me to death. My thoughts were to add a k-60, but the k-50 has done all that I have needed.
