  • k-60 impressionator

    who said the k-60 can't cut roots?

    who said the k-60 can't clean a 6'' line?

    who has doubt's about the k-60?

    maybe they should have been with me yesterday as i tackled a main line stoppage in a line that hasn't been snaked since 12/04.

    4'' cleanout access 74' out, in 6'' clay lateral in street.

    i put the green pencil there to give you an idea of the size of these roots.

    the cutter that i used is a 3.5'' spiral root saw.

    the front 15' cable section is a ridgid innercore. c-10 ic. 7/8''.
    the balance is regular c-10 7/8''

    the other roots and wipes were opened with my cut off cable/ auger in a reverse rotation. this is what allowed me to open the line and allow the saw cutter to work.

    the tree that keeps me busy is a ficus. they have a root system that lifts sidewalks and pipe.

    so now are you a believer in the k-60 impressionator

    rick.

              How long does it take you to cut all of those out of the cable?

                less time than it took to post this

                a couple seconds. as they just peeled off on the big stuff.

                the smaller roots took a minute with just a scratch awl tool. a pruner would have been 15 seconds.

                    allclear, the point i'm making is the size of the roots i was able to cut.

                    there is only 1 root i see that is bigger than a tooth pick in your picture

                    hi speed is what cuts the roots. k-60

                    hi torque is what breaks the roots.

                    show me roots that are 1/2'' in diameter.

                    don't worry, as i have larger ones to post.

                      Those roots in your picture were not CUT! Look at the ends, they are broken ends, not cut ends

                        Just for the record, at the next roundup, you two play with each other by yourself. Otherwise no one will be able to get a word in as you two are always trying to outdo each other.

                            No biggie Steve but I think it's not fair to pick on Rick about the arm wrestling competition. He had no idea I was going bring a can with me. A CAN OF WHOOP A$$ THAT IS. HAHAHAHAHA

                              Oh I`m sure of that

                              Hey Rick
                              you really think so

                              i still have them in my truck and i know that they were cut. the large diameter ends were not torn. torn would not be a clean cut, but a frayed end.

                              still haven't seen any large diameter roots posted yet?

                              i rather doubt you'll match the ones i will post.

                              so it takes, a sectional man to do your dirty work.

                              well ben, i guess the sectional men also rule the arm wrestling table too. not just the drain cleaning table
