  • 300 threader

    I recently bought a ridgid 300. It is slightly used. the only i problem i have is it has no foot pedal. I find that a foot pedal is necessary for me to do piping. I have found where i can purchase ridgid foot pedals and i was wondering how I would go about installing it on my threader?

      we have 4 300 threaders and on the pedal cord about a foot down from the top i put a twist lock plug ,this way you can take it and it is not flopping around when your trying to move it

        On the Ridgid home page under "support" then under "safety" then "footswitch" there is a service bulletin under which your threader may be eligible for a foot switch for no charge.

          If the machine never had a footswitch and has a serial number it can be installed at a ridged service center at no charge marvin

            just slide the foot switch up on one of the legs before you chain them together, or on the center piece if you are using a wheel set. I hate the twist locks, seems like either somebody will steal them or the other crew threw it into their truck and you will have to jumper the plug in to use the machine via the switch, no good.

              i keep one in my truck all the time so there wont be a problem with any of that .the other ones all have a color tape on the plugs and we never have had a problem with some one not putting every thing back in the tool room when they are done with it
              if we keep the stuff on a job and the site does not get locked up we have a job box on the and the pedal goes in the box with the dies

                G3sprinklers, your the only sprinkler man I've ever heard of that doesn't like the twist locks. Personally, I love them. It helps me keep my foot pedal in better shape because it seems like they are more prone to damage when they are permanently attached.


                On a side note, do you know any of the folks from Correct Fire up your way??

                  I always have to be a little different than everybody else I guess

                  Never heard of them in this area, although that doesn't mean much.

                    I really don't know much about Correct, other than a few of my previous co-workers went to work there. I think they have an office in Knoxville, that's why I asked.
