    Re: My review: K-7500 Drum vs. K-60 Sectional

    Isn't there a famous song about this very subject?
    Oh yeah, I remember:
    Originally posted by All Clear Sewer
    Rick went east to kansas, he was looking for a soul to steal.
    He was in a bind 'cos he was way behind: he was willin' to make a deal.
    When he came across this young man using a K-7500 and push`en it hard.
    Rick jumped upon a hickory stump and said: "Boy let me tell you what:
    "I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a sewer cleaner too.
    "And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.
    "Now you rip pretty good roots boy with that big ol'machine of yours, but give the devil his due:
    "I bet a K-60 made of gold against your soul, 'cos I think`s I'm better than you."
    The boy said: "well My name's Steven and it might be a sin,
    "But I'll take your bet, your gonna regret, 'cos I'm the best that's ever been."

    Steve oil up your cable and push your machines hard.
    'Cos hells broke loose in Kansas and Rick deals it hard.
    if you win you get this shiny K-60 made of gold.
    But if you lose, Rick gets your soul.

    Rick opened up his van doors and he said: "I'll start this show."
    fire flew from his fingertips as he sticks cables together.
    He pulled the handle down on his K-60 and it made an evil hiss.
    Then a band of Ridgid forum members joined in and it sounded something like this:
    Clunk, bang, pop, crash, snap, bang, pop
    Clunk, bang, pop, crash, snap, bang, pop

    When Rick finished up and started packing things back in to his van, Steve said: "Well you're pretty good ol' man.
    "But if you'll just sit down on that bucket right there, I`ll show you how its done."

    Fire on the mount, run boys, run.
    Ricks in the house of the risin' sun.
    Chicken in the bread pin, pickin' out dough.
    "Granny, does your dog bite?"
    "No, child, no."

    Rick bowed his head because he knew that he'd been beat.
    He laid that golden K-60 on the ground at Stevens feet.
    Steven said: "Rick just come on back if you ever want to try again.
    "I told you once, you son of a gun, I'm the best theres ever been."

    And he played fire on the mount, run boys, run.
    Rick`s in the house of the risin' sun.
    Chicken in the bread pin pickin' out dough.
    "Granny, does your dog bite?"
    "No, child, no."

      Carl, just to let you know, I was supposed to go to the bar tonight with some friends but have decided to stay here just to mess with you. Can't wait for the payback and would expect nothing less.

        I am a little more clever than you think...Getting Rick spun up was a major theme of my review. You don't think I was really posting this review for educational purposes only, now do you?

          Yeah we were aware of that too hence the effort.

                  I think this topic has all the credibility in the world as he`s used other drum machines and he likes the K-7500 best.

                  Now if we want to talk credibility,
                  I really don't know anyone on this fourm that clears as many drains/sewers as I do each day. Rick can talk all the smack he wants about how he`s a God but he`s never worn-out a K-7500 in just 2 years. I was rebuilding the machine after the first year and bought a new one after the second year. I`m talking brushes and feeder tubes flat worn-out. The cable is sticking through the feeder tube right now


                  Now when Rick can show me this much uses in just 2 years he will have credibility, till then I`ll just keep my A$$ off

                    This all looks very familiar

                    Maybe I've seen this movie before

                    Yea, it has all the ususual suspects and a really weak plot

                    Now I remember.....

                    The ending sucks!

                      I was home all morning, but I had three calls this afternoon. First one was a sewer stoppage. Some previous plumber replaced the sewer last year with PVC, but they didn't finish the job, they stopped to avoid excavating the brick retaining wall, and asphalt parking area. I hit the cleanout with the K-7500, went out 90' and cleared the line lickity-split. Then I video-inspected the system, confirmed the bad orangeberg, did a spot-location and gave an estimate to replace the remaining orangeberg.
                      This picture was taken on my cellphone and is not the best quality. Taken today, (nov. 26) at 3:00 pm. I was in and out of the job in no time with a fat check in my pocket. If I used the K-60, I would have wasted an extra 30 minutes at least messing around with the cables.

                      You can barely see it, but the K-7500 is sitting at the top of the hill, under the deck about 100 feet away, on the left hand side of the house, where the house cleanout was.



                      FAST, FAST, FAST! = More profit for me!
                      -> K-7500

                        I can run 125` out and in, under 15 minutes with my K-7500`s. Enough said!

                            Thats because you dont have the right tool on the end of the K-7500 to make the mush in to water

                            Hey Ridgid, look once again

                              I wish I lived in an area that had cleanouts outside or no basements where I could easily wheel a K7500 up to it.

                              Here in Minnesota, there are some old houses where I'd be really scared to lug a 275+ pound machine down into their basement due to the old stairs. Also, sometimes the staircases are just too narrow for a big drum. Those houses are rare, but they are out there. I guess I could tell them I could dig a huge 10' deep hole in their front yard and they can use that money tree in their backyard to pay me.

                              Plus, I bet it is a ton of fun lugging a 275+ pound machine in snow and on icy sidewalks.

                              I've helped a few drain guys haul down drum machines on nice wooden stairs. One homeowner cringed while watching us, probably hoping there would be no scuff marks or dents in the stairs.

                                Shoot, half the time my costumers will help me move the machine down the stairs. The K-7500 will fit down some pretty narrow stair ways. It`s the most compact large drum machine I have ever used. I can get through some pretty narrow door ways as well just to get to a water closet flange. It`s not as bad as Rick makes it out to be. As a request from a forum member, I am offering a class on Drum machine 101 Really true story I am putting a class together for those that want to learn.
