  • CABLE QUESTION

    In the market for new cable . general Maxi rooter has 125 ft 3/4 ' w core. I see 5/8" is available with or without core. Any input much appreciated.
    I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .

    stick with the 3/4'' inner core. when fishing for sharks, you don't use tackle made for trout.

    The Maxi rooter and the 3/4" innercore is/are a correct match. My General Speedrooters have 5/8" innercore cable, I find them capable of most jobs. They might take a little longer but they will pull out some big root balls.

          Agreed but that begs the question. The heavier and stronger machines do what better?

            I never had much luck with the 5/8 the head would come off if not taped on and it would break way to easy stay with IC 3/4 you will save money

              The General 5/8" cable? I've never had a head come off. I did have a head break once but I was pushing it hard. Then I just ordered another head, actually several.

                I meant the cutter. The screw will knock lose as there is not as much thread as the 3/4 and the cutter comes off if your working on a hard spot. but I still tape around screw on the 3/4 just incase, as the screw will still work lose. That is just if you use the general connection.
