  • Cable Question?

    Looking through Ridgids selections for the 5/8" what is the difference between the c-7 7 1/2" tight wind and the c-9 10' heavy duty wind

    Also I noticed that for the 7/8" they only offer c-10 all purpose cables. No tight wind looks like

    Now that being said what it be a good idea / bad idea to use the 7/8" trap leader ahead of the 7/8" cables in certain situations (I know for trap but for what else? )

    I was able to use the k-60 again todayon a kitchen drain for a customer .It performed flawlessly as usual. drum attachment with the 3/8" male end with 4" drop auger ...The 60 RULES!

    I have never had a use for a 7/8" trap leader. I have had no trouble going through 3" and 4" traps with regular 7/8" cable.

    If you want to make it a big boy machine your going to need 7/8" inncore cable which i get from general!

      the c-9 is a tight wind 10' cable that would work for 4'' pipe with small roots. it's similar to a drum cable in the wind.

      the c-10 also comes in the c-10-ic / inner core. this is the cable i use as my 15' leader for roots. and also for my 6'' lines.

      i don't use a trap leader and i've snaked many 1.5'' lines with the c-10 i use the front 14' with no male connector/ pin connector. then i bend a hook and call it my reverse auger. this will get into the 1.5'' and open up to 4'' with an auger hook that will grab the best of the roots. needs to be run in reverse to act as an auger. it's never failed or broken and it's my secret weapon

        Thanks for the responses guys..Where are you all finding the best deals on cutter heads cables etc. I have tried to order from a local supplier 3 times . Either there are items zeroed on the ticket when half the order comes in or they get backordered again etc.
        I wouls love to go online and just order away and have them show up at my door.But that would be waaayyy too easy I guess

          I use my 7/8" trap leader all the time mostly because I typically run through a 3" cast iron floor/areaway drain. It makes the jump past the trap much easier especially with the rootsaw head. Also, it doesn't put stress on the cable connectors.

          I used it last week when I couldn't push the cable down the main very far but wasn't binding up. Ran the camera and found I was deadheaded into a sanitary tee laying on it's side. Put the trap leader on and away it went

            WOW! Now were talkin' I am going to try and run my7/8" cables down my floor drain. It is 3" also. With the trap leader . I was thinking there was no way I'm getting that cable through a 3" cast iron trap with or without a trap leader.

                    Throw away the Ridgid cable and buy General I/C. I never had to use a leader to get through a trap with a K 60. I just run the machine in reverse if I need to get through a hard trap. A 4 blade cutter will get you around a T, just run in forward or reverse depending on which way you want to go, the 4 blade will walk the way you want to go after you get past the T run it normal.
