  • Which Drill..........???

    Ridgid, Makita, DeWalt, and Milwaukee have a lot of different big gun drills out there. Which make and model is preferred for running 1.25" cable ? Is having one with a slip clutch preferred ?

    I have dewalt / timberwolf .. Mine clutches in low..Wouldn't even attempt it without the drill being in low..But I cannot seem to find the adapter to run the ridgid cables..I would like to try it even though it scares the crap outta me ..But I gotta try it ..I wonder if the drill is too torquey for 7/8" cables. So does everyone make their own adapters or do they buy em' ..If so where..Thanks

      I have this one ..The one on ebay looks beat to hell and no handle and handle bolts

      But this one looks like it would get serious busy

      This looks much better than the first

          I'm wondering if the super hawg is too much.I think it's handle is longer.

              love the timberwolf for the 1.25''. never had the clutch slip and i don't think it's possible to slip the clutch on the cable.

              never cared for the feel of the hole hawg with the cables.

              the super hawg is probably a good subsitute, but so far the timberwolf has done a great job. plust i don't want to get my hawg dirty.

                Not really,
                Dewalt or Super Hawg.
                All others are under powered or handle too close to chuck,you have no leverage and will get hurt.

                        the ridgid cables are waaaaaaay too long to run with a drill. 10' cables would even scare me. if and when i ever attept the drill trick it will be with 8' eel cables and the electric eel drill adapter in my milwaukee hole hawg. thr guys out east favor that drill. i don't see how thr timberwolf or superhawg would be even remotely comfortable running cables.

                        i just can't wait to try out my new R750. looks like a k60 on steroids!

                          the hole hawg doesn't have the long body of the super hawg or timberwolf. when things start to torque, you'll really appreciate the longer body of the those drills.

                          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.

                            I use the Hole Shooter, if you need more leverage, thread in some iron pipe.
