    Yester day I used it to clear a 4" main line soft blockage via the roof vent stack
    LOL - How many batteries do you think it would take you to clear 40+ drains full of tar? I'm sure with the torque required to cut the hardened tar you would be lucky if a battery lasted long enough for a single drain. It took two of us the majority of the day to snake and test all of the drains. I guess the overflows could have been done with a drum machine from the ground as they day lighted out but we did them all from the roof.

      funny you ask about how many batteries, I only used one battery for 2 days while I was schooling Greg...lol He now whats one of these Cordless Drum Machines as he saw me use it under a trailer house to clear a main line, On a roof top to clear a main line. It`s an 18 Volt Dewalt so torque is not a problem

      It`s just like my 18 Volt W/C auger I used it many times with out a battery change
      You call it Jerry-jig
      I call it being Innovative and making quility tools for the jobs I face from day to day and making my job much faster and using less effort to get good results.

      Now tell me about those jobs I shouldnt use a drum machine on?

      BTW.... I just got back from using my Cordless W/C auger to clear a septic tank outlet for an ejector pit. How would you have cleared that with either machine when the outlet was 6` down in the ejector pit? Now keep in mind it was cold rock hard grease
      I was in and out in less then 1 minute

        Thanks for bringing us back on topic. There was a time where we had to pick between a station wagon for Brenda or a roughin truck for the business. Yeah, Brenda ended up with a choice between driving one of the 8' Skaug utility trucks or a 10' Skaug rough-in truck when dropping the kids off at school or going to the grocery store. It didn't take too long to buy her a station wagon as well but as a team player she knew we would make more money with a rough-in truck than with a station wagon.

          Actually I call it Jerry rig(ged) but you quoted my typo. I might buy you could clean one roof drain full of tar with a battery powered snake but there is no way you are going to clean over 40-drains full of hardened tar with a cordless snake.

            I have 2 18 volt batteries and I also have a 15 minute charger when needed

            Hey Mark
            I also got to thinking yep I do that once in a while...
            I forgot that I also have a K-380 that I use to do the roof vents with (sets in the shop now) and I bet it would have cleared the tar as well. BTW... that`s another drum machine

              I think I see what happened after reading all the posts. They took Rick to keep him out of the competition and replaced him with a clone. I bet the K 60 is a clone too as they probably held a blow torch to his K 60 so he would go quietly (Those fiends ). We should offer a $0.50 reward for him dead or alive.Ah I mean just alive and a $500.000.00 for the return of his K 60
