  • ridgid t-103

    2.5" sawtooth cutter.

    anybody use it? for what applications? to me it looks like a hole saw in front of a grease cutter.

    i've been twisting up spiral sawtooth cutters lately. they seem to get caught in wye fittings and offsets.

    It's a favorite of Rick and Josh.

    Josh used it in his Ridgid Reputation video.


    It cuts (forward) and rips up (reverse) roots.

    I use the 1.25" version for the 1500 all the time.

      nope. the t103 is a combination hole saw and c cutter.

      i've only used that at the roundup for the board buster contest.

      the spiral rootsaw is my favorite t111 3'' right up there with my reverse auger

      steve switch to the spiral root saw and you'll be much happier

          My mistake. Could have sworn that was a 2.5" sawtooth cutter in Josh's video.

          At any rate, I use these cutters for the 1500 all the time with good results. I try to make sure that the back C--cutter is angled slightly towards the cable to prevent it from getting hung up in joints (particularly in Clay pipe).

          Very good for the variety of roots of the consistency of steel wool. Cuts them up very well. You can bore into it and then rip and pull them apart with the backwards cutter.

          NOT an effective first cutter. When I encounter root masses (or "logs") of this nature I'll use either the T-13 or the T-14 as the 2nd cutter in the line after the 4-blade spear head and follow with a finishing cutter (full size C-cutter or expanding cutter).

            I use the combination hole saw, C cutter as my second tool. Once in a while I will use an H cutter as my second tool. My first tool is always the straight auger to get the line open first.

            I too tear up the spiral cutters when I have them.
