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. 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). So what is the big difference?

Inside Look: Milwaukee M18 Threaded Rod Cutter 2872-21

Only a few weeks ago we announced the launch of the Milwaukee M18 Threaded Rod Cutter 2872-21 with this post and video. We had only a little time with it before posting this intro and while we love tools and use lots of them, we are not qualified to give real user feedback on a Threaded Rod Cutter like this. We took this tool over to our friends at Mid-City Electric in their Pre-Fab Shop where they cut literally thousands of feet of threaded rod and that we knew were running the Dewalt 20V Threaded Rod Cutter DCS350 already.

Bosch MegaWatt Crew, New 18V Tools 2019

Mega-Watt-Bosch-18V

At World of Concrete 2019 last week Bosch 18V Tools went from a distant horse in the cordless tool race to one of the potential contender again with a large expansion of exciting 18V tools. They’re getting a little cute and naming all the tools which we have mixed emotions on, we’ve all loved calling the SDS-Plus hammer the Bulldog for years, it’s a great trade name, have they gone too far some of the other names, The Goon, The Surgeon, a little bit of a stretch but we’re talking about new amazingly powerful 18V tools so we’re on board. The new Bosch 8.0Ah batteries with 21700 cells and 1600 watts output are really the hidden hero here that allow these 18V tools to compete with other 36V and 54V (60V max) tools. Here is a rundown of what’s coming!

Milwaukee M18 FUEL 6” Grinders w/Brake 2980-22

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.
