  • Electric Eel Model C

    Clears lines 3"-10", 500 rpm, cable self feeds, 1 1/4" innercore cable, can run up to 200'(probably more, but after that I'd go Jetter anyway). In a tight spot can hook it up to a drill. Seems like the a hell of a machine. And since you hook the cables up to the front of the unit, the machine should stay clean, and have less working parts, making the units more reliable. Has a kit you can buy for running 7/8" cable for 2"-4" lines. Whats not to like with this unit?

    Charging less does not mean more call volume it just means you have to work harder to reach your goals.

      The Model C kit is not that expensive. It comes with 13 8' sections of dual 1 1/4" cable, two carrying cases, plus various cutter heads. Seems like it would be better to have the unit, and run the drill and eel only when needed. Would be safer.

        Came across a killer deal on one of these locally. Used machine and one cage of cable. The seller is out of town until tomorrow though. I'm still debating on how often I will use it. A drill does seem like it's easier and takes up less space.

            Rick, if you want to buy the machine, I can give you the phone number of the seller. I'm still debating on whether I should buy it or just go for a drill setup.

            I know you like collecting tools.

              aram, for the price, it's worth it. you can even sell the machine and keep the cables.

              just make sure he will hold it for you. the drive is a good hour each way. i wish i knew someone to pick it up for you that's closer.

              if ben finds out, he'll drive the 100 miles to grab it.

                If you have enough room to run it and don't have to worry about splatter from an 8 FT. of cable being exposed it is a good machine. I run one for 30 years till everyone started finishing out there basements and no O/S clean out and no 12 FT to run it. Tighten the clutch down and there is not much of it's size that will beat it for power.

                  Is the machine awkward to operate? Would I be better off just getting the cable and running a drill and eel? Just didn't know if the machine offered any advantages to just running the drill and eel set up. What I'm thinking is the Model C would take over anything that is outside through a cleanout(alot of my calls are outside), very few basements here. And I could run the drill and eel when space was limited. Also seems like the drill and eel could be run through a roof vent, crawl space, etc.

                  Anyone here run the J kit for the model c? It's the 7/8 cable. Didn't know if it could be hooked up to a the drill for a drill and eel with 7/8 cable. If it could, then wouldn' t it take to place of a k60?

                  Seems like the Model C and if I get the J Kit would pretty much handle anything except tubs, showers, and lavs.

                    15' sections of 7/8'' cable on a drill will get a little scary.

                    i run 10' sections of 1.25'' innercore and have a couple 4' sections when i need serious torque and the 10' is too much.
