Buy a great health insurance plan first.

these machines should only be operated by experts or under the supervision of one.

You will probably get hurt and damage your property.

Why not just hire your local plumber and get a warranty from him?

Your going to get seriously hurt-don't do it. Call a professional before you tear your wrist off or worse hurt someone else. These machines are not toys and it's not a job for novices. My advice is to get a blown in epoxy liner for 5500 and be done with tree roots and the idea of becoming a cripple for the rest of your life.

We have the general speed rooter 92 with the 100' ft 3/4 cable, it will do the job when the k-400 won't. It will break your leg though!
