  • trap leader for 60

    Noticed in catalog that 60 has an optional 7/8 trap leader. Anyone use one?

    no, never seen one in person for the k-60 and i've never needed one.

    it's all in the proper head you chose to clean with.

    i find that the bulb or straight auger is the best bet for a tight trap.

      I am getting my hands on a K-60 real soon. I will be using it primarily for 4" drains. What brand cables do you recommend Rick? the ridgid 7/8" cables or is there something better?

        nothing wrong with the genuine ridgid 7/8 cables for 4''. i've even used them in 6''.

        general wire makes an innercore 7/8'' cable with ridgid ends. great for 6''

        ridgid has an innercore too, but it's not out in the usa yet? or is it

          Are the general cables compatible with ridgid attachment blades? What are the advantages to the inner-core vs. hollow? and vice-versa?
          Thanks in advice, impressionater!

            just like a drum machine cable.
            the inner core adds stiffness and strength. for 6'' pipe, it's better to have the inner core.

            i have some and so does ben. i am doing 6'' with mine now

              So its a matter of flexibility vs. strength. I just want to buy one set of cables for now, so I have to decide which will be better for me. The inner-core sound superior, just maybe a bit less flexible which wouldn't matter if I bought a trap-leader for them, the best of both worlds?
