  • Cable cutter head kits?

    I've seen some cutter head kits in the past. Does anyone know part numbers for them for both 5/6" and 7/8" cable? Buying one head at a time can be very expensive.

    5/8''

    actually it's better to buy what works for you than what the starter kits are comprised of.

    a straight, and bulb auger is a must especially for the 5/8''.

    both 5/8'' and 7/8'' can use the 4 blade cutter and a spiral saw.

    the straight auger is a little to weak on the 7/8'' cable. i use my reverse wound straight auger all the time and it's never failed.

    rick.

    there are plenty of blades out there that see little to no use. buy the ones that will work.

        yeah, what he said

        You'll need the 7/8" trap leader if you don't have one

          To add to Bill(both of them) comment; Get some 4 bladed cutters like rick suggested. I love these blades as they skip over offsets and are hard to get stuck. Since the selection of these blades are limited with the 7/8" selection, buy some 4 bladed replacement blade from the 1 1/4" selection.
          Buy cheap, buy twice.
