I've been cleaning drains non-stop since the late 90's and I've only had the oppurtunity to use a Ridgid machine one time (K-40). It was a great machine for what I was doing at the time. My company handed over a K-750 to me today and I was wondering what people thought of it. I've always used the sleigh machines when it came to sewer mains. I've been using a Duracable DM-52 until today. It seems like a great idea to have a dolly-type machine seeing as how on most of our sewer stoppages we have to pull the commode to run it and the 52 is too wide to make it thru the bathroom door. Now I can move the machine right close to the flange and run it instead of having to fight the cable and machine harder than the stoppage. Only thing I'm worried about is will this new machine have as much torque and power as the 52. Sometimes we have to add another cable to get to the city sewer and that is the time I need it to be just as powerful as it was with only 100' out. I have seen another brand machine (very well known brand) that just barely flops when you add additional cable. Needless to say I'll never use that name. Also,I have yet to use it on a main, does the K-750 bog down when you come across an obstruction? My sleighs never did and I've always wondered if bogging down was obstacle in itself. Does it get as much pulling action at the roots if it bogs? Well, any comments will be appreciated and I'm absolutely stoked about using my new machine. Thanks.
