    Re: I dont need no stinking K-60

    i would be more impressed with the 7500 sitting on a roof.

    going down stairs is gravity.

    upstairs is strength.

    using a k-60 is experience

      hey Rick how you gonna work around the poles with a K-60???
      Yes it could be done but what a pain after you bring something down to set the K-60 on and try to feed cable between the poles as your 3` off the floor
      you`ve already seen it on the roof jobs

      BTW... see my 5 gal bucket so I can have a seat while the 7500 does all the work for me

        Poles? You mean those structural beams in the photo?

        Even I can make it work in that space. That is no problem.

        Is that an electrical cord that was hanging over your head I hope it was just a funny angle in the photo. It looks like it was hanging low and in your way.

          Yep, it was some 12-2 !!!! the electrical work looked just as bad as the plumbing in that house. If my city inspector ever went down there he`d lock the place up tight!!!!

            Is this the same place as your kitchen sink? Seems like they would be in the same house.

              you need the bucket to rest on as you'll be winded going back up stairs.

              3' is simple. i've strapped my k-60 on top of a 10' ladder with me on it.

              at 3' a simple milk crate will get me 1/2 way there.

              and if the 7500 does all the work for you, then you would have taken over 2 minutes to get 40' down the line in the 7500 roundup contest. not 6 seconds like the winning time

                        Re: I dont need no stinking K-60

                        He`d need a padded chair after caring all the cable, the 60 and a ladder and the cord down there so he could rest his old tired body...

                        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

                          Come on. Tell the truth. If you got the demo you wanted of the k-60 you wouldn't be so bitter now. (And I mean bitter in the nicest possible way)

                            2 things I would have done different is strap that 4" pipe to get rid of that vertical support. The other thing is forget the basement and gone through the vent. CI cleanout plugs are usually frozen shut around here. Maybe I don't have enogh lead in my pencil to free them but I find they're not worth the trouble, vent's easier.

                              I take the 4" plugs out with a hammer and a chisel.
