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

            You don't need part numbers with AJ Coleman. Talk to Marv, he's probably got every part number memorized.

              Drill & Eel isn't any quicker or cleaner than running your drum but it does get the job done sometimes even going where other machines can't

              What size cable are you running in your 300 ?

              PM me your e-mail address I'll send you the Eel catalog in PDF format.

              I use Eel cages & rear motorcycle tires, very stable.

                  Not sure if I'd want to run the beefy/heavy Eel cutters with the .55 ???

                  I also couldn't find anybody that offered the adapter for the .55 to Eel and I had called several places.

                    They have it from .66 to 3/4 to eel but was told not to use it unless it was a straight run due to all of those fittings so close together.....I called AJ Coleman. They did recommend the 3/4 to eel adapter.

                      Re: drill and eel

                      only head i would use i probally the 12'' spring leader with spade head or whatever it is.... POSSIBLY a 3'' root saw at times as well as the sludge pusher i couldnt see those being a problem considering spartan offers the same style heads for the .55 but there heads and cutters arent as nice as the eel's


                      and hey asstyme 5/8 is the same as .55 isnt it if so this adapter is right up our alley SP-43 the spartan pin lock for the cable and eel's dual tool adapter chingas

                        5/8'' = .625'' compared to your .55'' which is slightly larger than 1/2''. i wouldn't use anything big on a .55'' cable.

                        adapters just make the connections longer and therefore create a larger bend radius. wye's are not the issue. it's the 90's

                          The Spartan .55 and 5/8" pin lock connectors are different. Most Eel cutters are very heavy I'm not sure I'd want to use them on anything smaller than .66 or 3/4".


                          The 1" wide pear cutters work best with the .55.

                              The only one that's designed to hold the pair cutters is the brass style.

                                I have some flat bottom offsets and they do not make a specific holder but have been told by others it will be fine. I thought that was what you were referring to.
