Sounds pretty heavy for my aging azz. Do you know how much one 8' section weighs ?
I like the cage reel How many sections are you guys sticking in those tires? I'm sure the tires weigh more than the cage reels?
most of my work is inside some in basements some not. tires don't work for me. besides there is the beverly hillbillies look with tires. not very professional. i get top dollar. drop clothes everywhere all the way to the job. just me. breid.........................:party-on:
I have Rothenberger cages they are open on both sides which makes filling it a breeze.
Isn't just rolling a drum machine easier .. built in cable storage
but what happens when you need an extra 50'?
do you swap drums or add cable?
is that a marco machine you're using with a quick change cage?
most drum machines require tools and it's simpler and faster to just hand load another cable.
ADD> if we need to run down a stack we lay the machine on its back and string the cable through the top rung of the ladder........this method is for experienced users only. lol and no one has been hurt in over 40 years by doing it. we locate the sewer in the yard and dig/install a cleanout.
