    I would get RIDGID drums now as Spartan has been sold to a shark of a businessman in my opinion and now....I have been told by the rep that everything is going to be made in China soon if not already.

    Ridgid's comparable product for comparable price with a Forum full of help.

      Re: Drain Equipment

      I take it the Ridgid sewer machines you guys use here are solid American made units that have nothing to do with the Home Depot Chinese Ridgid line of power tools? I bought a Ridgid air compressor and drill press and they are made poorly. I bought a Milwakee Magnum 1/2 drill there also thinking I was getting American made as the demo said; when I got home and took it out of the box it said "made in China". We are all doomed.

          The "Made in China" debate has been around & around. Milwaukee has been owned by a Chinese Corporation for awhile. I'm probably one of the last generations of people that can remember that "Made in China" used to instantly mean it was a poor product. And it usually was a valid description.

          It doesn't mean that necessarily anymore. Chinese companies have drastically improved on their quality on their own or by other companies teaching them so they could then take advantage of their cheap labor.

          So you can get very good quality from anywhere. I just think everyone should make a conscious effort to pay an extra % to buy a product with more American labor/parts whenever possible.

          I've said it many times, every country has to manufacture something to exist. So try to support yours.

              Does the K60 require carrying a 220 Generator. Or can it run off of household current?
