    Re: Which Drill..........???

    The Model C doesn't sling as much crap around as one might think. I don't go in as much basements as you northerners do, but I have never had a problem if the model c making a mess.

      Are most spinning core or no core cables in their 1500 ? How much stress do the core cables put on the 1500 ?

        I am using Ridgid C-14 cables (and sometimes C-11 cables). The C-14's are heavy duty (heavy weight) 1.25" cables. The eel cables are not going to stress the 1500 out much.

        The 1500 is a beast. I would say look for a deal on a decent used 1500 or model C and jump on whatever comes up first.

If you do get a Model C, make sure to get the torque wrench Eel sales so you can adjust the clutch on the Model C. They come from the factory set at 100lbs, but I run them at 150bls 90% of the time.


          Hope to be ordering soon, have a part number for this ? Will the standard torque wrench that I already have work for this ?

            It might. I will have to see what size it is to be sure though. You will need to order a "Torque Wrench Adapter" from Eel though. It goes on the end of the Model C, then you put the torque wrench to it. The model number is SC-16 and it's around 15-20 bucks.
