Default Ridgid 7/8" Sectional Cables...

I'm going to be putting in an order soon to run 7/8" Ridgid/General sectional cable from a drill.


Most of the sections are going to be the General 5'ers. Should I get one 15' innercore section as a leader, does it make that much of a difference? I'd like to hold close to 100'


Was debating between the Eel 1.25" cable carrier vs the Ridgid 1.25" cable carrier...??? Which holds more cable?


As far as blades go I'm probably going to get a smaller arrowhead, root saw and a shark tooth C cutter.


I'm going to get the drill adapter from Drain Rehab. I will also need a uncoupling tool.


Anything I'm missing?

I added auger heads for my 7/8" cable and I added auger heads for my 5/8" cables as well.


In the picture is an auger head that I sent down a sewer line on my 7/8" cable. Unknown at the time to me, there was a broken line downstream. So the auger head got hung up. With my friend and me pulling by hand, we dislodged it and I got my cable back. Whewwww!! We all know that feeling when the cable is stuck and won't come back.

So, I removed the wings on this particular auger head and still have it in my toolbox, but it is a poor design in my opinion. Either that, or I made a poor choice and should not have sent it down the line. Anyway, lesson learned.

Things are starting to come in, almost wet myself


The Ridgid root saw and shark tooth cutter seem pretty cheesy for $35.00 each.
