        lets see

        1 drain in 1 day of use.

        give it a month or 2 and make a real comparison.

        i can tell you that the k-60 can do 90-95% of what a k-7500 can do.

        but a k-7500 can only do 50% of what a k-60 can do

          Wait are you suggesting this review is based on a single drain cleaning? If so I guess it is not much of a heads up review after all.

          Carl say it ain't so!

          The whole idea of multiple machines is the advantage of always having the right machine for the job. I think Rick should carry his K-7500 on his truck too but I know he doesn't.

            Anyone who can read can see here in this thread that I have years of experience of both Ridgid drum machines and sectionals. Since starting my own business, its been all K-60 work for sewers. Last week I put the K-7500 on the truck for a test-drive. I cleaned 3 sewers with it, got the feel of a drum back (its like riding a bicycle, you never really forget) and wrote my review.
            I have cleaned hundreds of drains with a K-6200, and it is very similar to the K-7500
            ....(except the K-7500 uses 3/4" cable and is belt-driven, which will not break as easily on roots as the 6200s 5/8" cable which has a direct-gear drive, I like the 7500 much better than the 6200.)

              You've only used a drum machine 1 time? How can you give us an honest review of that? Hold off on selling that k60 until you've used the 7500 at least 2 times. I'll buy it from you then.

                Rick if all that hog wash was true then please tell me how I can and have been running a sewer/drain business with out owning a K-60?
                Yes I may have 3 or 4 jobs a year that a K-60 might be easier to use then my K-7500 but with all the sewer`s and drains I do a day, the numbers just don't add up. There is a reason the used K-60 is the hottest sewer machine on Ebay. People buy em and find out they don`t need em.
                In Business SPEED is money! K-7500 = SPEED
                I would own one if the price is right but only because I have a tool fetish, not because I think I really need one.
                I`ve never left a sewer clogged so I guess I really don't have to have one

                  I am starting to think everyone who prefers sectionals has a selective reading comprehension.

                    Go back and reread this topic, he`s used many drum machines for many years....

Working for someone else, I never had a choice. I started at a K-60 sectional shop for years, I also worked a few years at a K-6200 drum shop.

                        But you are right, I should probably keep the K-60 for those difficult-access jobs. But overall, the drums will be getting the most jobs.

                          Sorry Carl, totally missed it, so you've used a drum machine 3 times. I got it now. Okay, wait until you've used a drum machine 10 times before you sell your k60.

                            Exactly why I prefer the drum. The k-60 is a really great machine. I really like it. It is just too slow to use.




                            ( Maybe if I was hourly I would prefer it. )

                                I don't get it Steve. I'd like to think that by now, I can call Carl a friend and friends are honest with each other. This is how we learn from each other. He tells us he's used a big drum machine 3 times and he's giving us a review. I love Carl like a brother(don't be gay, Rick) but is his bashing of the sectionals really right?

                                But it's not my place to judge him I'm just making an observation. If he likes the 7500 then so be it. All I know is I dated the wif more than 3 times before I married her.
