I had 4 k-60's down last week an adapter would have made me very happy. And don't get the wrong opinion it's not the k-60's fault they where down I abuse them beyond there design, they should have made them weigh more or me be younger. because I open the door on the van and look around for my weapon and at the end of the day I always grab the lightest machine.


    Maybe one needs to carry five or six to have a chance at getting one to work ?

      It might be wiser to run these from a drill as you get a better feel for whats happening.

        we do run our k1500 with the eel 1-1/4" cable , no issues . i agree the ell cables are so much better than the ridgid.

        All we run on the k7500 are eel cutters, I have ran up to three eel cables as a leader on the front of the k7500 , only because i get lazy and didnt wanna run a sectional. lol ...it works good.

          What about the K-60? I have alot Electric Eel J-Cable, I trust the Electric Eel cables and cutters more than I do Ridgid cable. Thinking of running J-Cable with my K-60.

            Since these are 6' sections why not just spin it from a 600rpm drill ? Would be more reliable and less work.

            I'm thinking about buying the J kit to do just this. I need to get some weight figures as compared to the 1.25" Eel cable.

              J-Cable is 6'. 5/8" Dual-matic cable is 5'. I run the J-Cable with the drill a lot. Times I'd use the K-60 is for when I pull a water closet or if I was inside, or for times I just WANT to use a K-60.

                I would never use a sectional inside someones bathroom unless I absolutely had to.

                Enter the lighter weight & small footprint of the Spartan 300.

                    I don't own a 300, K60 will have to do for now. I going in with an open mind, I'll give an honest opinion of after I've had it a few months.

                      Always get a kick outta asstyme and his anti sectional views, its like gun debate, pro gun or anti gun. pro sectional or anti sectional

                      I always use the general innercore with the k60, always i would think the eel ones might be nicer as the length is shorter.

                        I run Eel 1 1/4 cable hooked to my 3/4 drum cable when I hit mush to auger it out or just need a little more length. I will run maybe 80 ft if needed. only problem is right when it comes out there is a bind between the two sizes that can make the adaptor break unless you tape where the two cables meet so it is a slow transition to the bigger cable
