So my truck was broken into and all my power tools including my General mainline drum machine and my two general mini rooters. I haven't been happy with the general junk for awhile now and after reading a lot about the K60 on here I decided to buy one and move away from the drum machine for mainlines. I've used the K60 twice now to clear a couple of sewer lines through the toilet flange but find it's killing my back from leaning over to guide the cable into the flange. With my old drum machine the feed much higher off of the floor and while I sat on my tool box while feeding the cable into the flange it was comfortable. With my K60 I'm still sitting on my tool box but leaning over a lot further killing my back in the process. Are you guys placing the K60 on something to bring it up higher, or are you kneeling next to the machine like the ridgid K60 instructional videos killing your knees instead?? I'm also going to be making the Rick Reverse Auger. I've seen it made two ways on here. One with chopping down the cable 6" or so past the male end which I guess you'd have to feed the cables backwards into the machine and one 2' or so past the female end that would act like a giant whip attachment. Is there a benefit from one way to the other? Thank you.
No announcement yet.
Sore back, K60
