    Might get a set of those myself at that price. :D

    Also might be worth a look? http://www.wardsflex.co.uk/acatalog/Steelkane-Rods-and-Accessories.html Used them on the Council.

    Best reference I can give for the Steel Kane is we managed to chew through and clear a blockage with them that Anglian Water's van mounted jetter wouldn't touch. AW decided the sewer had collapsed, and at about 12' deep it wasn't going to be a quick repair.... We cleared it and to my knowledge it's never been dug up! :LOL:

    Just dont pick a fight with Steel rods, my boss shoved a few down trying to shift a stubborn blockage, put the crank on the end and wound them in, before the whole lot recoiled on him removing several front teeth...... :eek:
