i use just the front 15' section. have used both the ridgid c-10-ic/ inner core and the general inner core.
my best most aggressive root cutter is the spiral root saw. it allows me to cut roots while rotating forward and to act as a hook to tear when rotating in reverse.
my second most valuable cutter is my 4'' x 3'' pear cutter. it allows me to scrape pretty good on 4'' pipe with hard cast buildup that a normal 4'' cutter would struggle with.
my most valuable all around problem solver is my rick reverse auger.
Thanks for the reply Rick.
Can you post a pic of the "Rick Reverse Auger" ?
the important thing to remember with the reverse auger is the fact the mach needs to be run in reverse / counterclockwise rotation. the end auger can also be bent out on a 45 degree to allow it to whip on a 4'' line and still pass through a 1.5'' line.
in reverse the auger grabs like a corkscrew and it also will want to auto feed into the line.
another advantage is the cable will not break off from the connector like the ridgid straight auger does. the weld is 14' away and the cable is a much larger wire gage.
i've used it hundreds of times with great results.
Yah.. actually got to use my k 60 today was i ever impressed had a plugged line under a 100 year old house abs to castiron to clay pipe into tank whole house was backing up pulled lid off of old tank not full so looked around no cleanouts "typical" so pulled toilet grabbed the brand new 7/8 and started with straight auger went right to tank my helper said some **** came out so i retrieved the cable and used the spade bit and ended with a few passes with the three inch blade.. worked awesome quick drop sheets pertected the floor and yes the cable did seem to spin dry i m extreamly impressed like ive said before im new at this drain cleaning stuff but it was awesome... Know what do i do with my new k750" last but not least i pulled the overflow and used the k 45 to snake the bathtub cause when it backed up it plugged the trap with crap... Anyways super stoked cant wait to get more familliar with this machine just got get a rick reverse auger.
