    I took everything down in one trip. All the cutters and stuff go in the bucket and that hook`s on the power feed handle with the pipe sticking out and the cord just raps around the machine. One trip down and one up when finished
    Thats 125` of cable and everything to do the job
    actually i carry 53# 90' in the basket/ cage in 1 hand.
    and the 41# machine with my cord and cutters in the other.

    deduct 12# for no rear guide hose.

    so either 94# with rear hose or 82# without hose

    much better than a 150# machine and 152# of cable.(302#) plus all your pipe and buckets.

    when i had the 7500 in my w4500 gmc truck, i needed a crane to load and unload it. you wouldn't make it a week with a trailer here.

    use your head, not your back.

    sectionals were invented for basements. that's why they're so popular out your way.

      I dont know about the trailer thing rick as I also work in Wichita allot.
      Bet I`d make out just fine

      Sectionals are not so popular with the Home Owners around here anymore

            remember i'm in los angeles.

            when i have to pull my pipe bursting or jetter trailer, i have the owners park on the street to block off the space till i get there.

            some of the larger jetter co's have a dedicated truck for jetting with no trailer.

            traffic, 4 million plus people and parking don't mix.

            my truck is 19' long and with the back up camera i can easily fit into a 22' spot. standard parking space is 20'.

                  It is probably easier to parallel park

                  You double park? Our UPS drivers don't actually use parking spots.

                    Hey if wasn't for Rick I would have never bought a K -60,it is a great part of a full arsenal of tools for me, I love the drum machine and think of it as my main guy but it is big it is heavy but dam it kicks ***! I like Both of them and as Rick has preached over and over I use it on jobs that I would have ran for my big boy and have made due. Again I like both and use them when needed

                      YES Just like I said, I park like UPS

                      Theres nothing wrong with a K-60 and I`d like to add it to my arsenal of tools. It would set with my 380 and most likey not get much uses. I have a tool fetish
                      I have found that my home owner`s seem to like the K-7500 in their homes more then the sectionals. If it takes a little more work to move it to a basement so be it as I like to keep em happy and keep their job`s.

                        A bucket to set on is great if your knees are shot, sure saves some pain.

                          funny as the 2 city dog pounds i worked at today were first attempted by 3 city plumbers with a spartan 1065.

                          after they failed to get through the 6'' drains with running traps, they called the general contractor who oversaw the entire project. he calls me and i show up with my 1.25'' sectional and got through every line they couldn't.

                          even the ones with concrete. i do have pictures, but not time to transfer them.

                          even have a picture of the boxer i almost came home with. joey said no no no. once she saw the photo, she said well if baxter (my boxer) needs a brother

                          i'll be back next week to jet all the lines.

                          take that drum machines.

                          p.s. they even took my card for next time
