I want to say first thanks for all the help from everyone....I am a 15 year drum person...Today I did 4 sewer calls: 1st one had a NASTY 4" grease line that took about 7-8 passes with the recommendation of jetting. Second one was a roof vent cabling, which I haven't done that since 12 years ago in Florida--man that's kinda cool not pulling back to back toilets. Third was a quickie floor drain trap. The last one was under a house with back to back toilets and a vent in the attic not able to get to...first time cabling a sewer under a house, was nice and cool temp. under there, was 80 here today. Gotta say this, didn't miss the K-7500 too much...and my back is loving it...the only thing is this...when I hit obstructions the cable seems to just stop rotating...had to pull back and start spinning again...is something out of whack? Seems like I should be able to build up torque but doesn't...any information would be great.
Overall....the drum does have a place...and so does the sectional machine...but I do like the K-60 versatility...FYI the second and fourth jobs normally would have to pull a toilet and cut open the wall to access the vent and drop the cable in...and not to mention the K-7500 in a bathroom ALWAYS seems to walk and wobble all around...each job took about 45 minutes and 105 foot of cable...were as normally be two or three hour job and customers not real thrilled about holes in walls.... There is my take on these two very different styles of drain cleaning
