  • Crawler Cameras?????

    Hi all im toying with the idea of a crawler and want to know if anyone has tried, or know if it would be possible to adapt my see snake 325' onto a buggy/crawler.
    I know that a few things would have to be sorted out for it to be possible

    ie. pan tilt. Movement ( i was thinking jet?) Software?
    I know that im probably better off holding out and buying the complete thing but if i can utilize my ridgid cam first ill try.
    Any help or recommendations on brands of crawlers or accessories would be appreciated. Thanks oz

    as far as i know, the smallest crawlers they make are for 6''/ 150mm and larger.

    not sure if a motorized crawler using a seesnake pushrod is a good idea. the stiff pushrod would take away from the whole idea of a crawler.

    sure it might assist in pushing the full 200-325' distance, but i doubt there is one out that can negotiate 4''/100mm turns.

    we asked for a toilet camera last year and they developed the micro drain

    who knows, asking for a seesnake crawler camera might be all it takes to get the ball rolling. it's been discussed on many occasions.

        If memory serves correctly, Robert asked for this at last year's roundup. I believe the answer back then was that Ridgid doesn't want to do every single thing out there. They want to focus on a couple high quality rather than quantity. If I misunderstood, please edit my post as I don't to put any words into Fred's mouth.

          The cheapest way to get into a crawler camera setup is to buy a used truck with the equipment.

              My first thought of a crawler was under-the-building crawl space or as some here call a "crawler".

              Would be nice to have a all-terrain or a hummingbird type of camera for those wet and cold crawlers...crawl spaces.
