    Re: Roof top access

    how do you keep from chewing up the roof? i don't see a guide hose. i use scrap chunks of 1 1/2" pvc and ferncos. they meet "code" here on drain machines. by the way glad i listened to you about the k-60. i don't see many easy access jobs like in the drum boys pictures. lol. breid...................

      this is from last sundays emergency call at a triplex. i left joey at our local hardware store to help out while i left to go bail out a customer who had a mainline stoppage.

      tub was full and no way was i going to pull the toilet

      so off to the roof and 4'' vent.

      hit the stoppage at 77' and continued to run it to 90'.

      pulled out roots and wipes

      i was back at the store before joey even knew i was gone

      i've said it a hundred or more times. if you don't own a k-60, you'll never know what you're missing.

      the k-60 is the most universal, useful drain cleaning machine in the whole entire lineup. i've used them all and my go to machine is the k-60

      rick.



      old school 4'' roof vent/ stack.



      roots and wipes.



      90' of cable and the k-60. no gloves, no love



      my brand new 22' little giant first job



      even the sprinter was a tight fit between the cars, yet i was able to get the k-60 and cable out the back door between the cars. no loading ramps, lift or winch needed.
      There is nothing worse than a show off and the parking confirms it

        tony, with all the sewer cameras i have sitting around, don't you think i rigged up a reverse camera

        there are no rear windows and i rely on my camera and parking assist built into the rear and front bumpers

        parking is a premium in my work area. those that pull a trailer and can find a parking spot have it made. ther are times i've had the customer park their car overnight so i could call and have them move it for me

          Always nice to see a Little Giant ladder.

          I hate it when guys buy those knock off ladders and think they're just as good - they aren't.

          How many Little Giants is this Rick - your third or your fourth?

          Maybe it's more than 5...

            i have the knock off commercial version. so far i like it. as long as i don't fall off and have to have shoulder surgery i'll be fine.
            the only dumb question is the one that is not asked!
