  • K60 & cold tempeture ??

    I'm sure it will be just fine but need to ask?
    All my drain equipment "Not sewer camera" are kept in my van at all times all my other machines are fine Any problems storing my K60 in sub zero weather in my van we can go as low as -50 during the winter??

    Charging less does not mean more call volume it just means you have to work harder to reach your goals.

    If its anything like a K-50 you might have to let it get a little warm inside the house before you turn it on. I really can not tell you exactly since I do not own one. But my K-50's when it gets real cold out and if I turn it on before letting it warm up it will not spin.

      i would be concerned with any water left in the bearings that could freeze. maybe a shot of wd40 before you store it?

      the 2 bearings are in the front and rear of the machine.

              mine stays out all winter in an unheated storage building. -15f or -20f. i warm up all my power tools for few minutes when it's chilly. let them run with no load for a few minutes. on stuff like a worm drive you will hear them pick up speed. breid............

                    I have had a lot of bad things happen to me but the worst to date has been my ladder accident. Five years later after multiple surgeries I now have a total shoulder replacement, a reconstructed total knee replacement and a permanent leg length discrepancy. Go buy yourself some real ladders and stay safe. I spent my adult life using Little Giant ladders and as soon as I used my son-in-laws Home Depot ladder I ended up in an ambulance.

                        It's pretty scary but once you add reconstructive surgery on my wrist, my kidney transplant, $3,600 a month in anti-rejection medicines and a couple of other surgeries, $1,000,000 is likely a little low. It makes you wonder if modern medicine is a good thing or a bad thing.

                            my wife had a bilateral lung transplant 3 1/2 years ago. so i think modern medicine is great. dialysis is better than the alternative, but ain't so good on your body. i'm 66. i can remember medicine from my youth. this is a lot better. medicine is improving daily. breid...............

                              It's a good ladder .Just not for that..If someone comes out the door when you're on top you're done ..well done..Sometimes I will tether mine also whether an extension ladder or step ladder..call me paranoid
