    You would want to run innercore cable and I'm sure 15' sections would not work very well. The Eel 7/8" cables are 6' long.

I get my eel cutters right from eel I carry 40 feet per reel nice and light bucket with drill cutters cord and pipe wrench. If I need more cable I just grab another reel nice and light easy in easy out won't break your balls has plenty of power.

    Just wondering because Will says his Milwaukee spins at 650rpm

    Seems a tad fast but I would like to try it out

    My DW124 only turns out 300rpm.

    Any noticeable difference in rpm between the 2, which do you prefer 300 or 450 rpm or do you wish it was 650 rpm ?

    I have the Ridgid intercore. Just wanted another option in case I get stuck. The K-sissy at times, seems to lack power.
