  • K-60 question

    Here in Minnesota sectionals are rare so there is no one local to ask.

    When using a drum while letting off the foot switch
    the drum goes backwards to relieve torque on the cable.

    Does the cable in the sectional un-torque when the lever is disengaged?
    If this is how it works does it snap back in place quickly?

    Also is the cable all hand fed in and out?
    No auto feed?

    I watched the video's but their not that informative in actual working conditions
    like pulling roots and such from a main line.

    Thanks

    If this is how it works does it snap back in place quickly? very quick but it won't shoot out like a drum...I don't consider it dangerous.

    Also is the cable all hand fed in and out?yes
    No auto feed?only when in reverse, this doesn't hurt the cable but am sure it's not endorsed by ridgid

    For the most part you push in and pull out the cable....way faster then autofeed. You only spin the cable to get past turns and through blockages.
    Buy cheap, buy twice.
