  • signed, sealed, delivered, oh yeah

    my new american power and venom k-1500 are on the road and should be in 2 more days

    before the send off, they got the personal attention of the creators of the machines.

    not to mention the signature of the ceo of ridgid

    not a hat trick, but 2 out of 3 is still a collection

    the venom, designed and built by the repair department employees.

        today was the big day. my prized ridgid machines were delivered.

        ridgid did an over the top job packaging the machines to get them delivered without a scratch. they built crates out of 1/2'' osb and 2x4, 2x2 and enough screws to build an outdoor deck.

        the combined weight was 863# nice to have a buddy with a forklift to get them off the truck.

        i was in awe when i removed the top lid of the crates. the first/ larger crate was the venom. with it's custom webs and graphics to go along with it's handmade 1 of a kind wheels. i was blown away. i climbed right into the box to let the venoms webs encircle me

        next up was the american power, with it's all american graphics and pimped out fenders, and grille to go along with the artist signature addressed to me

        1 day when phoebe is reading this she will appreciate all the hard work and creativity that the employees of ridgid put into it. this was not just a purchase of a tool, but a purchase of american plumbing history

        only wish i had the big brother/ top fuel, to go along with the venom and american power

        once again a big thanks to all the ridgid employees that spent countless hours on creating these works of art and getting them delivered to me in showroom condition. along with a special thanks to rachel for being the liaison in the process.

        heavy duty tools.



        getting all caught up in the web of the moment.

                Puts a smile on my face to see you with them. Congratz on winning them. I dont think the pics do them justice. Seeing them in person really shows off the detail put into em.

                So... when is their first job

                        Let's just say, there was a reason they were not delivered to their house or his shop. What do you think Joey will do when he starts hanging around the Drive-in on "Drain Cleaners" night?
