  • Machine comparable with K750

    I've been researching the K 750 for some time now and was wondering if I could get some feedback from the pros. Also, I was wondering if any of you guys use General wire machines that are comparable, and if so how do they measure up? If anyone is selling one of these please ket me know

    The general wire I'm looking at is the speedrooter 91 with 3/4" cable

      I guess you haven't read any of the threads about the 'K-60'?!


      I think I hear Rick and Ben coming now to stand for the K-60, or is that Steve the drum boy?!

        k-60 specs say it can only do up to 4", I need to do at least 6". But after reading all those posts on it I'm considering buying one of those too

          Spartan 300. If I ever buy a drum machine, it'll be the Spartan 2001. If you bought a K-60 and used the 7/8" innercore then you would be able to use it in 6". Is the majority of your lines 6" or is it 4" then increases to 6"?

                the 750 is fine for an occasional user.

                the 7500 is best for the real professional. better feeder, motor, stair climbers, drum capacity.

                now if your interested in a 750 or 7500, i'm sure joey can price one out for you when i'm out of town

                it does sound like you have the same pipe dimensions as we have here.

                a k-60 in the truck with innercore will take up little room and little weight. add some 5/8'' cable to it and you're covered from 1.5'' to 6''.

                pound for pound / kilo for kilo it's the best machine i own. and you know i own them all

                there is a reason why the drums are at the shop and the k60 is riding shotgun.

                      funny you asked.

                      with a big drum machine, 250# it better be strapped and secured or it will not be where you think it was.

                      the k-60 is secured in a matter of a second with a single "s" hook and has yet to move.

                      another thing i like with it. i can easily take the machine and cable in my suv and do a quickie. with the drum monster, i would never put it in my suv.
