      the machine with the smallest investment and the fastest payback would be my k-39. i charge $15.00 for using it and in under 20 uses, it's paid for.

      my k-60 i charge $45.00 and is also paid for in 35 uses.

      so to sum it up. it takes a good investment to make a return on it.

      [quote=DUNBAR;138390]So you're charging $45 for main lines, $15 dollars for smaller drains.

      dunbar, you need to read the fine/ bold print.

      this is my machine charge. not my total charge.
      even i don't work that cheap.

          K-39 AF has been my best friend lately... Though I have only had it for 2 months it has paid for itself.

            Auto Spin with out a doubt!!!! It works great for the money. Paid for it's self in a job and a half. Nothing like a home owner saying that drain never drained that good! and all I used was a (oh heck it was so cheap I forgot what it costs) $150.00 tool.

            The great thing is it takes a real knack to work so if a home owner buys one all they will wind up with is a tangled up cable. Other plumbers can't believe I own one. They think it's a piece of junk. of course they haven't used one. I just keep saying "ahh it's O.K. I guess".


            My handiest rigid tool is the seesnake micro. When they make it so it will go through a toilet it will be the greatest tool of all time.


            Most impresive is my rigid locator easy to use and right on the money.
            Saves other plumbers time and money digging.

                Have had my Ridgid wrenches and tubing cutters forever. Can't beat the return on investment on some copper cutters...one repipe and it's paid for a thousand times over...lol. They don't get used nearly as much as in the past with the cost of material and the PEX trend.

                I don't yet own a Ridgid cam but I can say the Ridgid Navitrack II is worth its weight in gold. Best locater we've used hands down.

                Although pricey the ProPress is a lifesaver. Several commercial jobs have been done in minutes rather than hours.
