    I don't have the drill and Eel cable set up, but I HAVE drilled several metric shit tons of big holes through wood, and this is the baddest adzz drill I have ever seen. If the DeWalt will do it, this beast will do it, but better and faster. https://www.google.com/search?q=milw...w=1024&bih=605

    A friend of mine using the Dreel showed me how to take it through house traps if you have to go in from the inlet side.

    He uses a short cable length and steps on it pressing it against the side of the cleanout opening threading it in so to speak to push it through the trap.
    He just stands there with the drill turning and stepping on the cable...
    It goes right through...

    im strongly considering buying into this drill eel thing for crawl spaces and what not but I am concerned as to how much cable can be spun with the drill effectively. It is not uncommon to have 120 to 150 ft sewers here. Can this set up perform at that distance?

    I have to get a Dewalt (timberwolf) drill. Was using a whole Hawg till it went south.
    Bought a brand new one but the new style Jacobs chuck won't keep the adapter locked in
    no matter how hard it's tightened.

    Bring me a torque monster.
