  • Camera and K-60 Cart

    Howdie all,

    I'm new to the group. I wanted to share a few pictures with you. It's a modified hand-truck used for a K-60 and doubles for a Seasnake camera. Look at it closely... there's a deep-cycle battery hooked up to an inverter for remote camera power. I didn't build it - maybe that's why it's so clever!

    Here it is...

          At the present time a cart is not needed but in 10 years with a couple back injuries and I might be changing my tune. I see Ridgid already offers a cart for just the sectional cables but nothing like that. Welcome to the forum.

            it's a clean design, but the whole idea about the k-60 is the ability of taking it anywhere. it's lite and portable.

            i keep 90' of cable in my carrier. by myself i carry the k-60 in 1 hand and 90' in the other hand. along with a 50' cord for power and a ring of cutters.

            the ise disposal snap ring makes for a great cutter key chain

            so unless you really want to store all this stuff on a dedicated cart. it's more show than go for me.

            as far as the seesnake. i also carry it with my tool case monitor and i don't need the inverter as the toolcase is 12 volts already.

            the only time i needed a cart was when i did 26 c/o at 1 job in a day. the cart was a rubbermaid 30'' x 48'' and it carried all my goodies for hauling butt in and out of all the individual garages.

            now if you really want a machine. try my 12 volt k750 with a built in battery that i designed for a very interesting job site. 300 plus units and very few electrical outlets on the property grounds.

            a generator would have been too much to lug and noisy. an inverter has a conversion efficency loss. but a true 1/2h.p 12 volt motor hauls butt.

            now see if he is up to the ridgid round up challenge. good luck hauling that cart up the stairs and ladder

            rick.

              Re Cart: I like that cart for cameras. I used to carry a handtruck on the truck anyways, just for water heaters. If the middle shelf on that cart would come on and off easily instead of being welded on, that would have been real handy. Having a car battery as a power source saved all the time of running extension cords and looking for a place to plug in. This thing was designed before barrey-packs were available. It was great for those "special jobs". Just a thought.....

                Yes, that's me. Cole Publishing (Cleaner magazine) and I go back a long way together. I used to put on seminars in Nashville and wrote an article or two for Cleaner magazine when Cameras, Locators and Jetters were first hitting the scene. Those experiences changed my whole career.

                    I can't make it this year. I'm booked with a number of seminars and sales training classes for techs. Plumbing and drain companies in Michigan are getting hit pretty hard right now. Sooooooo..... I go in the field to help them sell sewer work, negotiate with insurance companies, give classes, etc.

                    The slower they get, the busier I'm getting. I miss my pals at the show.
