    Default Another Sectional

    I need another "all around" sectional. I have a General I-95. I have not had any problems or breakdowns in several years. Nothing. I've actually left it out in the open in rainstorms more than once. (I know, dumbazz)

    So why not another I-95? Well, it's not a root machine really. And I haven't needed one, but like you all know, sometime I might.

    So I'm thinking:

    Ridgid K60
    General Wire Root 66
    Rothenberger R600

    Any opinions appreciated.

    I like my K60. Parts are easy to come by in my area, even though I haven't needed any yet. General is not readily available here. Wish the K60 had more balls sometimes, but it works for most clogs.

    I got 2 sectionals one being a k50 and the other a root66. They are both great machines considering the wide range of jobs they can handle. Both have attachable drums that can be used for tubs or p-traps. I love the drum adapters. If I could only have one machine, it would be my root66. RPMs are a bit less than K60. Lower RPMs allow for the small cables in the drums.

    You can use the drum adaptor on the K60 also.

    What is the size of the Root 66 vs the K50? Anyway for you to upload a side by side of the two machines?

    The root66 spins at lower rpms than k60 making it easier to control the drum cables. Its built with no belt and no need to adjust for different size cables. Its a solid machine. I love my k50 so I bought the bigger version a root66.
