  • help me convince my boss to buy a rigid sectional sewer machine .

    in my opinion rigid sectionals are much easier to maintain , make troubleshooting easier and have less breakdowns.

    can anyone please back me up on this ?

    You better hope none of the drum guys respond in this thread...

    But for me personally..I like sectionals because I'm more comfortable with it. I have nothing against drum machines as I'm not that good with them.

      I learned on drum machines. Now that I own a K-60 I am never going back. Check out the K-60 section of the forum. I am sure it will have all the info you will need.

        Charging less does not mean more call volume it just means you have to work harder to reach your goals.

                    I started out on sectionals. More work, harder on the body. You'll earn every dollar in using a sectional.


                    There's been a rash of people having problems of K-60 issues on here with them seizing up, not working in the cold. Search the postings to find them.


                    I've been a drum machine owner ever since I realized there are easy ways to make money, get the drain open and be in good physical shape when the day is over with.

                    If you're young and indestructable... go for the K-60.

                      I vote K-1500b. Start flaming away, I got my big boy pants on.

                      In the area I am at I don't doubt the k-60 could do it but why push it? With 710 rpm, 3/4 h.p. vs 1/2 h.p. and the ability to go longer distances it's a home run.

                      We have a lot of 6" lines and I don't want to use a 7/8" cable in that, besides the k-60 is only rated for up to 4" lines.
                      Anyone can tear a man down, few can build one up.

                        did i forget to mention that the k-60 is the #1 selling sewer machine in the ridgid lineup

                        oh and fred the president of ridgid, it's his favorite machine too. he told me so at lunch

                        don't believe me, ask him

                        ps. the k-60 will do 6'' with the ridgid c-10ic cable or general ic cable.

                        just about every sewer i clean is a 4''-6'' line.

                          If its ridgids #1 selling machine then I bet it is Ole Freds favorite machine.

                            1500 is way to bunky at least the 1 1/14 cable is ,compare the the 60 in my opinion and i put my 1500 away in the shed every since i could not corner a lateral around a 100 feet away
                            and use my Drum machine for long runs unless from the roof or access is limited.
                            Sectional more control and friendly, but a little more set up.
                            Drum machine, convenient and stronger at distances less set up time.
                            Over all opinion if i can only have one machine it would be a k-60 if i every able to get a drum for running 5/16 cable. Right now my pick is the k-50 if i could only have one.

                              Start kinking drum cable and then have your response be "this wouldn't happen if we were running sectionals"
                              Buy cheap, buy twice.
