  • New K 60 - where to buy cable and cutters?

    Picked out the cutters and cables I want thanks to reading hundreds of past post here.

    Where to buy them? Tool Up seems to have overall good prices but no General 7/8" IC
    and not many replacement blades. Free Delivery also.

    AJ Coleman doesn't seem to show much on their web site so hard to compare.

    A part number for General 7/8 IC would be a great help.

    Any input would be great.

    Give marv or shane a call at coleman. They should have the cables and cutters in stock. Just spoke to shane today for some 1.25" specialty cutters.

    I only run the front 15' section with innercore. Spiral rootsaw is my go to cutter. And my reverse auger is my get it open cable.

          Don't be affraid to use the spiral root saw in reverse rotation. I don't use the pear shape shark tooth much. I feel the spiral root saw is the most agressive cutter they have. In reverse it acts as a corkscrew auger, hook. 90% of my roots are done with a 3"" or 4" spiral root saw on the first pass.
