  • Bring on your K-60

    Do this with your K-60






    BTW this came out of a 3" sewer. The root ball is about 5" so I would love to see you pull that out with a K-60

    Sounds like a challenge!

      The fact that you are impressed with that little root ball tells me you would really be impressed with a K-60.

        Re: Bring on your K-60

        It`s not the root ball that impressed me it`s the fact that it pulled it out of a 3" sewer and the roots are the size that they are.

        Here's another one I did today.

        I set-up my machine and got my bucket to sit on and let the machine do all the work.
        Notice:
        there`s that pipe again



        Look at these roots I pulled out. They are laying in front of the machine.



        sure is rough setting on that bucket not all bent over sticking cables together

              Rick can't hear you. He's busy putting cable sections back together

                That's the kind of job

                That takes a few passes to ensure the drain is open/catch any more if you can.

                That section of PVC makes all the difference in the world when you're 1-manning that machine. Beats sitting down lower and two handing it, not having your hands on it to back it off or send it through slowly.

                    Josh, this would make a good natured competition at the ridgid get together. Get 2 pipes clogged with roots and let All Clear and Rick see who could clear them faster. We'll then camera the lines to see who did a better job. The men choose their weapons and meet at high noon.

                      I think we could arrange something like that

                        That is a big plus to my drum machine, the speed, no cables to take apart, not only that, I love the torque my machine has, grabs more roots with less stress. Not sure how strong that sectional is.

                          Re: Bring on your K-60

                          Okay help me out here as I am trying to figure this out. Steve owns a K-7500 but not a K-60 and tells us his K-7500 is superior to a K-60. Rick owns a K-7500 and a K-60 so he can choose either machine yet he grabs his K-60 first. The way I see it the choice must come down to lack of experience on Rick's part or lack of machines on Steve's part. I'll let you guys decide.

                            it's all fun and games. we know each other on the forum well enough to know it's not taken serious.

                            actually today was truck maintenance day. oil and filter for both the engine and trans.

                            that's only a pencil you have to compare too. try my thumb as a comparison.

                            mark actually i own 2- 7500 and 3 or 4- 750. along with spartan 300, general 88 and a k-1500. not to mention other smaller machines.

                            i cleared a 6'' main line stoppage the other day with my k-60 through a 4'' c/o with 4'' cutters on it. the line was 65' long and the nasty roots were at 34- 35' in.

                            sure i could have used my k1500. but i gave my k-60 a shot at it.

                            there are times i would use a drum machine over the sectional machine, but i found that i could carry a better variety of sectional machines on the truck with more footage than i could with my drums. i carry 105' of 5/8 k-50 cable. 210' now of 7/8'' k-60 cable and 150' of 1.25'' k-1500 cable.

                            what all clear doesn't understand is that not every job is a simple right in your face stoppage. put his challenge on the roof, in a basement, crawlspace or any other tuff access location. the k 60 is not a replacement for every drain job out there but it does 95% of what i come across and i get a lot of jobs from other plumbers and contractors because they know i have the equipment to get the job done.

                            like i've stated before, there's a reason why my drum machines are sitting at my shop

                            josh, in that challenge, mix up the pipe sizes and access points. make him go from the basement to the roof. from 1.5'' to 6''. i want to see him sweat

                            also make sure you have a k-60 for all clear that he can purchase for his trip home. he has been trying to buy one locally.

                            i'm up for the challenge

                              All Clear, are you going to let Rick talk to you like that? I'd be at the Ridgid showdown with a k7500 a root-rippin if I was you.
