    2 words come to mind

    GEAR DRIVE
    small motor and gear drive = less weight and power

      General is not very well known for their customer service. Ridgid is even able to keep finicky customers like Steve happy. The biggest testimonal of all imo is the 18' rootball that Steve pulled out with his 7500. If it can do that than that small motor is more than enough torque. Ridgid should post a picture like that in the cleaner magazine with Steve. That would be a great ad.

      I think Ridgid's closest drum competitor is Spartan. I got a 1065 cheap but if I had to pay for a drum machine I would get the 2001 because it has a drum brake. This is a huge advantage but someone smarter than I, said the 2001 isn't as durable as the 1065.
      Buy cheap, buy twice.

        Ben is right, I am finicky
        I am very demanding of my machines and their performance. Ridgid has always stepped up and made sure I had what I needed to keep working.

          On the General the drive rollers drop out with just 3 screws I read it was more work on the ridgid. All the rest seems the same stair rollers tough frame etc.
          I might be biased as I have the maxi

            Any experience with Marco's they have drum brakes, we used to use the PF-80's and 90's 1/2 HP motors, their CS isnt as good as ridgid but whose is? If you need parts for anyone other than Ridgid you need to really hunt it down!

              It might be more work but doesn't take long to change em. I change mine about every 3 to 4 months and I`m thinking it takes about 15 to 20 minutes to do it.

                if ridgid posted allclears pic, rick would have a fit---imagine the pics and crying that ridgid would hear if this happened----

                i agree, allclears roots are the best so far--and from a drummer--this must eat rick up

                  My old General had a 1/2 HP motor, which was far more than enough to kink the 3/4" cable. Why would you need more?
