wheeler rex pipe hog


Boy I could have used one of these today:

http://www.plumbersurplus.com/Cat/Pipe-Hogs/645/List

http://www.accentshopping.com/product.asp?P_ID=152258

I had three 4" fittings at slab level that I gave the wrong spec to my plumber and I had to get the pipe out of the hub on a 4" P trap. I was successful on one of three with a sawzall, chisel, and hammer. The other two took 1/2 day for me to get under there and replace the darn traps. No, I didn't tell my plumber. I was too embarrassed and didn't want to wait 2 days to get him back.

Has anyone used the pipe hog or Pasco Rambit? I've had to salvage fittings before because of tight quarters and this may be useful in my tool box.

David

I have ram bits too. Pretty good tool, but spendy- until you realize the labor you save
