Ridgid SeeSnake Drain Cleaner is here, FlexShaft

Since the Ridgid SeeSnake was invented there has been the desire when you find a blockage, you use that pricey piece of equipment to just nudge it loose, right? The camera head is already there, why not just jab it a few times, if that doesn’t work, maybe just really give it some good hard pokes… oh no the camera went dark… It’s true and it’s happened many, many times before. Typically most only make that mistake once, then have much more respect for their camera as strictly a diagnostic machine. That all changes today, with the addition of Ridgid’s new FlexShaft!

Ridgid SeeSnake Cameras with TruSense HDR

Ridgid SeeSnake TruSense

The industry standard for inspection cameras are without question the Ridgid SeeSnake Cameras, day in day out these cameras perform in some very nasty situations. For all intensive purposes these have remained a fairly consistent design since they were black & white.

So what is the big difference?

Ridgid K-5208

If you’ve cleaned drains at any point in your career in the last 100 years, changes are good you are familiar with Ridgid Drain Cleaning machines. There also have not been a lot of design changes in recent years, however we are now seeing a little competiton coming from Milwaukee Tools and other cordless tool brands looking to take a piece of the pie. Ridgid of course has a big leg up here with many years of product development so we are excited to see a totally new design, built on what’s worked for them, with the K-5208 Section Drain Cleaners, available as machine only 61688, with 4x 15’ cable 61692 or 7x 15’ cables 62378. So how does this stack up to other Ridgid Dain Cleaner options?

Ridgid & GreenLee Are Now One Company

Ridgid Greenlee Sluggo

Just announced Emerson (Parent Company of Ridgid) has just acquired the Tools & Testing division of Textron (Parent Company of GreenLee). For many years these iconic brands were focus exclusively on their respective trades Ridgid was synonymous with Plumbing Tools while GreenLee Electrician Tools.

With both brands now part of the Emerson Family, will they be able to leverage them together to reclaim some lost ground? (more…)
