    Default K-60 lovefest

    So all this talk of the glorious K-60 (on pz )touched my heart so I started using it again.

    It does have it's advantages, lighter and needs less footprint than the Dreel.

    When to use it? Homeowner says line cleared within a year = K-60

    When not to use it? Long run or Homeowner says, been five years since line was
    cleaned and we pulled out lots of roots back then = Dreel

    Dislike that feeling of possible failure as the roots or wipes build up is more than the K-60 will do.
    Let's face it. The K-60 is a medium duty machine at best.

    Even worse is when you have to pull the K-60 out and get the Dreel out of the truck.

    But so far in the last week or so I've used the K-60 a good dozen times and it came through.
    (got stuck good once but with a lot of grunt and dish soap it prevailed)

    God Bless the K-60 LOL

    ( waiting for quirky response from AZZZZ )

    I feel bad for you... all that pulling and pushing...

    What you really need is to sit on a bucket and run a Spartan 300. That K-Stupid would be in the trash heap

    Still love my K-sissy. But we rarely get heavy roots, and there's still that whole "we run stoppages from the roof vent here" thing.

    You have toe realize that I'm in S Fla. only frost line we have is in an actual freezer. We require one foot of cover on the pipe. At three foot, residential lines are bordering ridiculously deep. No reason to fight a bad root problem. Locate and dig around here.

    Ahhhhhhhhh,

    Basements are called swimming pools,

    Frost line is in the Freezer .. Funny

    Years ago, before discovering Mexico I would vacation in Florida and even
    thought of opening a motel in a sleepy place called Everglade city.

    That was thirty years ago. Wonder if it is still sleepy.
