    Absolutely love this machine, works great for going down the roof vent. I pull a lot less toilets with the Ridgid K-60.

    the reverse auger is the best go to cable when nothing else will fit the opening or penetrate the stoppage. it blows away a factory auger bit and doesn't break.

    that particular spiral saw is a general. it's 1'' wide stock and has a great hook. doesn't have the teeth on both sides as the ridgid, but it has a better hook and is more aggressive.

    How about this catch of the day. 4'' cleanout that transitions at 26' in to the 6'' clay under sidewalk. heavy roots and then more at the city saddle at 48'. tool of choice is the k-60 with first section of innercore and a 4'' spiral rootsaw.

    Rick.



    first pass at the 26' mark 4x6'' transition. closeup of the roots.




    second pass to 48' with the pile i cut off. 4'' spiral saw. allows me to cut in forward rotation and auger in reverse rotation. the open end is a great auger.

    Variable speed would be a great addition and I suspect, not all that hard to do. It can be a bear pulling cable too but the mechanism to auto reverse the cable would add a lot of wight and bulk to the machine.
    We use the K60 for probably 80% of the residential work we do because its light weight, compact and easy to move around and while it will handle larger jobs it is not IMO the ideal choice always. You really have to keep on top of things with larger cables and cutters spinning because the machine has a tendency to tip over if you aren't careful.

    I have 12 years experience in sewer cleaning. I've used almost every make of cable machines out there. From General, Marco,Burton, and Rigids. This was the first sectional I've ever operated. I studied machines for about 8 months before purchasing the K60 for my Business. I have to say at first I was sceptical, I seen the cable and thought hmm its not a solid strand cable there is no innercore. How will this not break. I've used it on many jobs now. Not only am I pleased with the weight, and the cleanliness of my jobsites after I'm done. I'm very impressed with the power of this machine. I've pulled 6 feet of about 1/4 roots out of a line. I've pulled rags out of lines. I'm so happy that it is an easy clean up, and I love the fact that I can get it under a trailer house. I would recommend this machine to anyone and when the time comes to buy more machines for my Company you can bet it will K60's.
