Drain cleaning machines
The K-45 manual and K-45AF AUTOFEED drain cleaning machines feature optimized power up to 600 RPM. The drain cleaners are designed for 3/4- to 2 1/2-inch drain lines. Cable is offered in three sizes of 1/4, 5/16, 3/8 inches, each in varying of lengths of up to 50 feet. They feature advanced two-way autofeed, letting the operator clean drains better and faster, quickly working back and forth through drain blockages to completely clear lines.
The ability for users to advance and retrieve the cable without stopping to reverse the motor reduces job times by 15%. Both the K-45 and K-45AF machines have variable speed operation from 0 to 600 RPM to give the operator complete control in all situations. The inner drum prevents leakage to reduce on-site cleaning and clean-up times.
The drain machines offer a quick-acting, slide chuck that locks the cable. The inner drum design eliminates cable flip-over within the drum and allows for quick cable change out, and a compression-wound inner core cable combines strength and flexibility to avoid kinking. The units have soft touch grips on their ergonomically designed handles.

There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
