“I have a lining job that has two tie-ins that I cannot use your Ultra High Speed cable and cutter to get to the openings. I run into these situations every so often and had to hire a sub to come to my job and open up the lateral with is cutter from the pipe I just lined. I liked how it worked, but the price of $80,000.00 to get one is beyond my budget for the few of these I do per year. What are my options?”
