    Re: Ridgid Round Up Update

    For the record, hats off to Ridge Tools. They have gone way overboard to entertain us. We are shuttled from one great experience to another and it just keeps getting better.

      Yes! It has been absolutely amazing! They have really gone all out to make sure we are having fun, being entertained, and learn a little something in the process.

            I'm with you OSC! I might get into plumbing and/or drain cleaning just to go next year. Sounds like a blast!

            Congrats to all the winners!

              lets set the record straight, i purposely used the k-60 as i already knew that everyone else was using the drum for this contest.

              you had to push approx 35' into a 4'' line and use the supplied cutter to cut through a 1/2'' thick sound board.

              originally they wanted me to assemble the 3- 15' sections and load them into the k-60 guide hose. while the drum guys already had the cable in their machine. not really a fair start as the machines were already at the clean outs and not in the truck or upstairs in the school house.

              so they compromised and allowed me to pre load the cable. but not chose the cutter choice. the cutter that was used is a cutter i never use on either machine.

              by the way, i beat lots of other drum times. just not the winning drum time. so if you think you can clean a drain in 6 seconds from start to finish you all are wrong. 6 seconds is not a drain cleaning contest of any real scenario. it's was how fast you can throw cable out of the machine down the line and punch a hole in a 1/2'' sound board.


              now make us wheel or carry the machine from the school house or parking lot and see who can get it started up and running first.

              this was not really a test that i/ we expected.

              so go ahead and gloat as even the ceo of ridge tool is on record as saying the k-60 is his machine of choice.

              not to mention the k-60 is the #1 sold drain machine in belgium.

              didn't see the 7500 drum compete in the board cutting contest that bill/ crack won.

              The K60 Lost today. Drum machine won..... BY FAR and all the Ridgids reps admitted it in front of everyone!!!!!!

              The K60 could not keep up with the drum. RICK DID NOT WIN ANY CABLE COMPETITIONS
              no rick did not win the snaking contest, but did come up a close 2nd in the board cutting k-1500 test.

              i was too busy smoking all the young guys.

              #1 propress maze.

              #1 lag bolt driving contest.

              #1 hand threading contest.

              #1 overall contest winner.

              won 3 of 9 events.

              so now you know the rest of the story.

              if you can dish it out, can you take the truth

                                K-60 is the king of versatility and you all know it. Who cares about some silly artificial contest. Rick owns a bunch of drum machines and still prefers the K-60. Faster isn't everything. Like rick said, the drum's started at the cleanout, but in real life they have to be unloaded off the truck and often then rolled into homes or downstairs into basements.
                                My back prefers the sectionals anyday!
