How To Snake A Main Line Drain...
Main line drains are 3” or bigger and will require a large drain snake to clear the stoppage. Putting a small or medium sized drain cable down a main drain could cause problems such as doubling back on itself and tying itself into knots while in the drain because there is so much more room in the large pipe. Usually large drain snakes are ¾ or bigger and are very rigid so then cannot get stuck easily. 
Sewer drain snakes can be rented and are great for pushing or cutting through most stoppages including those caused by annoying tree roots. Make sure to get a quick lesson on using the large drain snake when you rent it because they can be dangerous if not used properly.
