      i said the same thing 3 years ago

      there's plenty of good reading from many, many k-60 users to help guide you from crawling to walking, to running

      you'll soon learn why us k-60 users are about the machine.

      pound for pound, the meanest machine on the market.

            spiral root saw

            the 16 foot guide hose (A60-16) instead of 12'

              about 75ft of 5/8" cable (c-8)



              At least one section of 7/8" innercore cable to use as a leader in 6" pipe.

              I prefer to run all general innercore cable in 6" pipe, one section is better then none.

              The spiral root saw (#62925) with extra blades (#92890). THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST ROOT BLADE!

              I like to use the 4 blade 3"cutter also (#62935). i will some times use it as a tool just to get water flowing and then i will clean the line up with the root saw.

                a spiral root saw running in reverse will grab and cut off a large bundle of roots. wthout loading up

                my best secret weapon is my reverse wound auger made from a 12' section of c-10/ 7/8'' sectional cable. running in reverse will act as a corkscrew and bore through anything.

                of couse with a proper bend and good sharp tip, you can clear anything. follow it up with the proper cutters to clean the line properly.
