      I do not know if it helps any one or not.

        I'm getting an idea all of a sudden.... some kind of crazy contraption that would lengthen the body of a Hole Hawg and give you some good leverage when you hit tough roots.

            Milwaukee did make a electronic feedback speed dial hole hawg the 1678(reg model is the 1675) back in the late '90s. Didn't sell well but did have a longer body!

              15' cables are not an issue until you hit an obstruction. then you wish that you're cables already a good 10' in. problem with the ridgid cables are they're not innercore out here. in europe they are

              plus if you need a short section for safety, they don't have it.

              my general 10' sections and 2- 4' sections have never failed me. they have couples that are the "G" connector for general and the eel pin type connector. they also have 2 size innercores.

              rick.
              No need for innercore in the Ridgid 1-1/4" cables. If you need a stiff cable that can grab and tear roots, look no further than the C-14. Those things will out perform an innercore C-11 any day of the week. 1/2" pitch will grab more roots too.


              The Ridgid cables weren't designed to be direct drive, hence no need for shorter sections.


              I like the idea of the drill setup.....more for the fun or sport of it. Kind of seems like more work than it's worth unless you're in a really tight spot.

                      1 on the handle/ trigger finger and the open palm on the back end behind the chuck. if you have the handle still that loops around the gearcase, not the pipe handle, that's a good spot.

                      remember to have respect for the power of this drill. also only low gear, never high. 10' cables and when needed a 4' section or 2- 4' sections. keep the slack to a minimun until you have a real good feel for the drill and cables. i can run 30' in 1 section with the right feel. coming out is easy to run 30'. going in is a skill and respect.

                        I think that AT should fly you out to demo for him. He thinks the 1500 is a PITA. I fear for his insurance deductibles


                        Gary, don't go thinking that you're going to run 30' exposed in a basement now. Rick charms the eel into doing his bidding with his cunning whit and intellect

                          Nice score on the the drill. I use the Milwaukee hole shooter, but your Timber-wolf should work great. I recommend you get the Eel cable and cutter heads.

                              Nope not me, I'm going to be asking more questions and proceeding with extra caution. This is only going to be used on those PITA 6" lines and PITA 4" lines over 100'. But then again maybe more if it grows on me.............???

                                I know it's going to be more work than my drum machine but I had to do something for those tough jobs. The K-1500 was on my list of choices and was 2nd in the running.
