      I posted a while back about 7/8 eel cable and cutters in another thread. Also mentioned that AJ Coleman has it in stock.

          Get the 6x4 expanding cutter when you can best finish blade out there
          Also both of their sludge buster blades 3 & 4 inch they have been very handy

            Where did you order it from ?


            Why the the 7/8" cable, why not always run the 1.25" ?

              The 7/8" runs through 2"-4" pipe, but since it is solid core I'd think it should be able to go up to 6". I'm gonna hook it up to a hole hawg and make it my poor mans k60. The 7/8" cable is only 6' long. Plus I can run the 7/8" as a leader to alow it to get through tight bends that the 1.25" may have a hard time with. It's also cheaper than 1.25" eel cable so with the both kits I can run up to 176'.

                Save your money on the 7/8" kit, put it towards a k-60.......the 1-1/4" cable will do 3" tru 8" I have never had a use to run 7/8" cables with the eel.

                  Re: Electric Eel Model C

                  You all know I love and use the drill and eel cable. Ever notice I don't have or run the 7/8 eel cable for my drill? There is a reason.
                  Drill over torques the 7/8 very easy.
                  Will it work yes but I'm not a fan of 7/8 J cable on a drill

                  I think the K60 can spin the eel 7/8? If so pick up a used K60 trust me.
                  If it were that simple I would just run the J cable with my drill.

                    Re: Electric Eel Model C

                    i would be interested in the j- 7/8'' cable with a lower torque drill. i think there is a good opportunity to try it out on difficult jobs. i would use a slow speed 5 amp or smaller drill.

                    let us know what you decide.

                    what was the cost of the j-kit for 72'.

                    rick.
                    phoebe it is

                      Re: Electric Eel Model C

                      I was thinking the same thing Rick. I have a 1/2" Porter Cable Drill that I think I could put to use. J-Kit was pretty expensive, around 500 bucks with the cable cages and cutter heads(5 piece set). I got the complete kit and got the j kit too.

                      Electric Eel Model N runs a 5/8 inner core sectional cable(5' length) that has a adapter to hook it up to Model J cutter heads I think. Might could rig something up with that cable too for really small drains. I didn't buy the Model N or the Model N cable though. May latter, just bought a sewer camera and model c and a j kit. Need to make some money 1st.

                      Another reason I got the J-Kit is that some houses here have outside kitchen cleanouts, but no main cleanout outside. With the j-kit I can hook it up to the model c and clear the blockage in the main through the kitchen sink clean out without having to get on the roof.

                        Re: Electric Eel Model C

                        What is the weight difference between the 1.25" 1/2" Eel inner core and the J cable ? It would be nice to get an actual weight on a 24' section of each.

                        The 6' sections of J cable has to be just as strong or stronger than the General inner core 7/8", no ?

                        I'm thinking about the possibility of buying the J kit and spinning with a lower powered drill in 4" mains up to 100'.

                        Tell me why this is a bad idea ???

                          Because you already have your wunderkins Spartan 300 machine that should be able to do any 4" line. Why would you waste your time with J-cable? Overhead cleanout?

                            I don't remember ever saying that ??? You K-Silly guys are just jealous

                            As a matter of fact last week was terrible, one of my worst/toughest weeks ever as I had 2 mains that the 300 wouldn't open and 1 that a large plumbing firm couldn't open. One was 4" the other 2 were 6". Also had a few long runs that I knew better than to use the 300 on. Got them all open with the 1.25".

                            Just looking at another option and wondering how it would compare to my 300 ???

                            The J cable would be self feeding which is a huge plus. Doing several jobs a week in & out a few times with the 1.25" can wear me down..........

                                To tell you the truth if it had more power, was more reliable and was self feeding I would already have one.
