    but truthfully a ridgid 7500 is top of the line for many reasons.

    ridgid is in your backyard and the support you'll get here and from them is priceless.

    of course you can dump the maxirooter idea and get a k-60 sectional

    phoebe it is

      I used general drums before I got my 7500 they had plenty of power and there cable was a lot better then Ridgid or electric eel's the only problem I had was the bolts kept falling out and the belt would slip on the metal drum so I had to replace it more often and I like the Ridgid plastic drum it wont rust through.

        I have one and it is top of the line for general, cable great, motor great, chasis solid, stair rollers and loading wheel, easy change feed bearings but and I mean but the reverse is really slow and not a good system they give ratings at it's speed in reverse but it is really slow and weak, when my chance comes I will buy the rigid 7500 after I get a real honest opinion on it's reverse power when your 150 ft out. So good machine but has it's problems.

          I have the Maxi rooter , Sure like mine, Plenty of power. But am hack carpenter that uses it seldom. Never used the big ridgid. You might say" I only use it for recreation" .
          I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .

              General and Ridgid are my favorites although I havent been exposed to many other brands, the general alway worked well for me as did a ridgid keep in mind Ridgid support is second to none where as General leaves quite a bit to be desired.....

                I used general at an old job and found that they needed alot of maintenance

                I use ridgid for most tools - pipe threader, seesnake, wrenches, wet/vac

                i use gorlitz machines

                  I have a few generals (speedrooter 91, powervee, supervee) and I like what I've seen so far. Though I don't really use any of them that often
