      you'll find that the cables don't require a rust inhibitor. the cables are not stored in a drum that retains water. the only thing i do is spray the connectors with oil. 7/8'' is less critical then the 5/8'' to keep the pins and springs lubed.

      do some reading of the older threads for you cutter selection and tips and tricks.

        I use wd40 bought in a gallon. Cables stay clean.

          I use brake cleaner and hose the cable then hit it with good old WD-40....if its too bad then stop off at the car wash and drop a couple of bucks and blast it clean.....

              no, the larger guide hose will also accomidate the 5/8'' cable too.

              the smaller guide hose is made for the k-50, but no need to buy it with the k-60.

              you did also buy the 7/8'' cable too? correct.

                wd -40 or d-fule in a pinch, put the cable in a motorcycle tire w/ lube and roll . i use 7/8 on most every thing. including a 12"car wash drain this week. car parts underpants etc...

                          What is your set up rick? I think I read that you use general sections so you can up to do 6" What ends and cutters do you usually use most often?

                            i use just the front 15' section. have used both the ridgid c-10-ic/ inner core and the general inner core.
                            my best most aggressive root cutter is the spiral root saw. it allows me to cut roots while rotating forward and to act as a hook to tear when rotating in reverse.

                            my second most valuable cutter is my 4'' x 3'' pear cutter. it allows me to scrape pretty good on 4'' pipe with hard cast buildup that a normal 4'' cutter would struggle with.

                            my most valuable all around problem solver is my rick reverse auger.
