    I'll speak for inner-core:



    Tight wound cable with a flexible cable inside. When the attachment approaches an obstruction, for example hard obstruction, the attachment stops and the cable now begins the turning and tightening down on this center cable.


    When the cable reaches the stopping point where it cannot tighten anymore, the torque from the machine now turns that cable into a stiff **** in the love canal and gives brute force to break/clear/remove obstruction.


    They are a heavier cable, they are stronger by far, they cost considerably more but create the best application for allowing your machine to deliver the force needed to bust a clog open.


    In my area, I rarely have to work the machine hard enough to bind down in most cases, my clutch on the motor of my 300 has never engaged. Pretty cool in my opinion.

      Does any one know if the 7/8"x15ft GENERAL innercore cables fit together with the RIDGID 7/8" calble used in the k-60?

        They both use the same type fittings so yes they will connect to each other

          Inner core is much safer cable than no core to the operator. NC is an easy repairable, collects more energy if u get stuck and trying to go back and forward, but it kinks and snaps easier =) If u get to run 300-450 once in a while, suggest to get lighter NC cables w/ bigger dia.
