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?

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. These new models with TruSense HDR imaging and TiltSense features are in addition to existing model options but only about $150 upcharge over the Self-Leveling options so will likely replace them when they catch on, Compact 200’ is 63628 ($6381), Standard 200’ 63603 ($7484) and extended length 325’ 63583 ($8296).

M18 Grinders 2980-22

Ever since launching their 7”-9” M18 FUEL 7”/9” grinder 2785-21HD last year we’ve been asking where is the 6” grinder? For professional trades a more compact 6” grinder really is the perfect solution and 6” slicer wheels and grinder wheels are much more popular than the monster 7” or 9”. It looks like Milwaukee has done a lot of things right here and almost guaranteed this unit will become very popular here is why.
