Thats because most sectionals you see around here are the electric eels. When i see the other guys using the K60s around here, they arent using the guide tubes or containing the cables.
My 300 has been sitting for 2 weeks right now.......kinda like it.
What no one acknowledges is the heaviness of a K-60 AND the reel of cable on each side of your body when you carry it in. Not unless you believe in not hurting your back and make......hrmmmm lets see 4 trips to safely operate your equipment?
Has to be at least a 100 pounds minimum, no? < The two combined if you he-man it into the basement or in the house.
Not a wheel in sight either. The drum allows movement without relying of lifting the total weight from point A to point B.
Tribe has spoken
Lift your K-60, put out your fire
leave the roundup immediately
ebbery body wave bye!
One thing I see here is he talks about only caring in the cable needed to clear the plug.
I`m thinking HACK!!!!!!!!
At my Shop, you clean the line, not just the plug!
"We Go All The Way"
Most sewers here are 100` + so we use 125` on the K-7500.
Other then that good read ;)
He's not a hack-He's the Director of drain cleaning at Ridgid:shrug:
Here's why I believe you.......but also know a similar situation that is difficult for the upper body:
I carry a MC tank in a steel box along with a fire extinguisher and numerous copper tools to work with, flux/solder, the normal stuff.
That box I know hovers around 40 to 50 pounds and it's a pretty awkward situation where it hurts to carry it without grabbing something equally heavy to balance out going up and down steps or just normal walking up and down a grade.
I'm constantly asked if I want/need help and I decline as the customer sees the struggle plus all I'm trying to drag out all at one time.
There's a reason for it and it's stability.
I will tell you I've done the luggage carrier trick for awhile with my bucket but never perfected it.
Hard wheels, no flex which would make it bounce and turn. There's an invention I'm going to play with that follows this idea and works with springs that give the same reliable motion as a OTR truck driver's seat in those big trucks that instantly adjusts by the way the terrain it crosses without transfering that to the hands/arms/shoulders to within reason.
I just bought a mig welder and soon I'm going for a tig. The mig is set up with a spool gun to weld aluminum and the tig is for cold weld, thin material joining. If I can convert the ideas of what's swirling in my head and put it to a design of the products I think of to protect your body or prevent injuries to people with health issues like me.......I'll be on the right track.
To stop the rambling.......all I can say is carrying heavy items in a house without the luxury of wheels is a strain I like to avoid whenever possible. :bravo:
