  • 5/8" Sectional

    Do you keep your 5/8" sectional in the cage? I'm thinking of keeping it in a bucket. I've found it easier/cleaner when retrieving it to just put it in a 5 gal. bucket.

    What do you do different?

    Thanks.

    I keep mine in the cage because it is easier for me to control and wash when needed.

      I tried the 5 gallon bucket for a while was fine when the cable was new but after you do a job fight getting everything back to your truck or van, don't put it in just perfect, you hit a few bumps in the road it flies out. I have benn using a motorcycle tire for the 5/8" and it works really well. I read about the motorcycle tire on the forum.

        This may sound kookie. If so, sound off. But I was thinking of using one of the buckets that you get hydraulic oil in. Clean it out good, run the cable in or out through the spout. Clip a large head on when done to keep it from falling in, ready to go next time. Take the top off to clean.

          No go ahead and try it. I think because of the tension that gets in the cable it will try to overlap itself and make it hard to get out later but I might be wrong. I base this on manual feed drum snakes that even with the angled inlet would do this to me but it's worth a shot and trying is the best thing we humans can do.

            I'll give it a try first chance I can and post if it seems to work well. Thanks for the input.
