  • Question about 5/8 cable

    I just can't justify getting a K60 yet, but I was wondering if I could use 1 section of 5/8 sectional cable on my small machine for 1.5 and 2 inch lines. I like the idea of of 5/8 instead of 3/8 and the open wind seems like it would augur grease better. Any insight would be appreciated.

    It'll work. All Clear did mention that another plumber tried this and it broke but it sounds like he has a lot of hacks in his area. I was going to try the same thing with my k3800 but I don't use it anymore since I got my K50.
    Buy cheap, buy twice.

      Yes, the guy that tried it is a hack for sure.

        it will fit a 3/8'' ridgid drum cable. there is a difference in torque and speed. the section is designed for high speed and is more flexible than the drum cable.

        try the c-9 cable that is the heavy duty wind over the c-8 which is the all purpose wind.

          Do you think the higher torque would matter even for kitchen and lav drains. I'm thinking the most torque I have on my small cable is at fittings and I was hoping the sectional cable would be more flexable to get around the fittings better, even reducing the torque. What do you think. I guess I'll have to try it and find out. Or is the C9 cable plenty flexable?
