  • Killing the 3/4 IC Cable

    well here we go again. I broke this one and it was only 4 months old. Now I have a K-7500 that can do Rick`s tub drains

    That's 3/4"? Looks mighty thin. You have to be one of the most loyal customers any company has ever had. If I kept buying a product that would break on me constantly, I would have switched brands a long time ago.

        all clear, you really need to change the front nose cone on your auto feed. i always help pull mine back in to keep from the wear on the front nose and the bearings.

        you need to machine a front bronze bushing.

        as far as your cable concerns. please bring a sample with the code date on the female coupler to the roundup. i'm telling you the old stuff from 10 years ago was bullet proof.

        the round up is a way to meet the department upper brass. they want to hear it from us, just as we want to pick their brains too.

        i'll tell you again for the 100th. time. sectional is much more forgiving.

        sure more work, but that's what keeps me out of the gym

          I agree, Spartan cable. Ask for the new 3/4 Sparshine while its still the same price as the original stuff.

              that looks like 1/2" cable to me...Greg, you use 1/2 in you Spartan 100?....do you use it on k/sinks and floor drains?...i ALLWAYS use 13/32 in my Spartan 100 and its great for k/sinks and floor drains....it would seem that 1/2 is too big for those types, but do you do it?...back in the day my father had an old sewer machine with 1/2" in it and we used it on sewer lines k/sinks and every dam thang!!!!..lol...now i only use 5/8nc in the Spartan 300 and 13/32nc for the 100....i guess you i could carry another 100 drum full of 1/2nc with a blade for roof jobs because that 1/2 will cur LIGHT roots with the proper balde....what do you guys think??

                      I use mytana cable non inner core and the only time it goes bad is when I do something wrong. I also have a general with 3/4 inercore that has never given us a problem -the cable that is. we can almost stall the motor on that machine. The Mytana won't stall.

                      Another big company around here uses General machines and cable with no trouble all non inner core.

                        He meant 5/16" cable. You can't put 3/8" in a 81 machine.

                        I use a 100 machine with 13/32" inner core for the 1 1/2" - 2" and 5/16" inner core for smaller drains. I have never had a problem.

                        Sure, I have to carry 2 drums but it's not bad. No power feed on the 100, that's just lazy.
