  • Bang for the buck......?

    I found a deal on a newer pair, Ridgid 380 and 750, both with extras,
    (cables, knives, etc.)
    both for $2100. Both drums w/power feeds.(almost mint) as the ad says.
    Is this a good deal?

    No It`s not a god deal.

    Used 750 maybe $500 to $800.00
    Used 380 maybe $150 to $200.00


    On the 750 hold out for a 7500

      Those prices seem a bit low to me. Are yuo selling any used equipment, I'd be interested at those prices.

            The rule on used is 1/2 of new or less. Never pay over 1/2 of new!

              Thanks for the tip, I will go by that rule of thumb.

                if you're going to do this for a living, move up to a 7500 and a 3800.

                the 380 is more of a handyman unit.

                the 750 is good, but the 7500 has a much better motor, auto feed and stair climbers. along with 25' more capacity.

                now if you want new or used, i have the 750 and 7500 new and used.

                in fact i'll probably only keep 1 drum machine now.

                  I have used the k-380 and k-3800 both quite a bit and I prefer the 380. I have the self-feed option and the wheels and stand. It blow the 3800 away in speed and ease of use.

                    I use my 380 with 1/2" x 75' of cable almost every day. I would not consider it a handyman unit. It works well with the auto feed and the wheels on it. If I planned on changing drums all the time, then the 3800 would be the better choice. But I also have a K-39 with 5/16" cable for smaller drains, so no need to change the drum.

                    On a side note, my 5/8" cables for the K-60 should be here in one week. I think my 380 will see less use after they arrive.

                          Nice!! Rick named his k60 the "impressionator",I think your k380 should be called "mighymouse"!!.

                              I'm shopping around a little, but I have no real idea how to
                              price these things out.
                              I found an Electric Eel main line rig for $650.
                              Built like a drum but the cable winds into a cage.
                              I'd entertain the idea of buying some used gear
                              from you but you're way too far away.
