What is the heaviest and longest hand auger that is practical?


I like power auger machines of course. But if you had to snake by hand, what is the largest practical hand auger? 3/8", 5/8"? It needs to be 75 feet long.

Sorry, but you arent about to snake 75' by hand. If you can then you're one SOB I dont want to shake hands with for fear of you crushing my own. Hell, I dont know if Hercules himself could snake a drain out 75' by hand. If the issue is no power at the job then rent a generator.
