  • Time to buy..

    Been very busy starting a business, haven't had much time to visit my favorite online forum. Hope all is well with you guys. Finally licensed and ready to go in Florida. After much thought and debate, I've decided to start out with a K60 and K39 af. Before anyone starts about Rick's powerful brainwashing techniques, I would like to add a drum to the arsenal in the future, it's just not feasible now. I chose this setup because of versatility, portability, durability, reliability, and price. I'm also getting some jetting equipment, but I'd like to know where you have bought your Ridgid machines. Price is important, but service and who you deal with is too. Any dealers or advice?

    North State is great as is Black book of tools.
    Buy cheap, buy twice.

        ToolUp has been great:-)

        I spent my first year in business running with a K39 and K-60 they got the jobs done.

        My K39 is dead now (It is by far the weak link).

          rich, you can p.m. joey

          today being tax day and in another hour, i'm on my way to pay the piper

          i'm sure joey knows where some of my stash is

          no all, just some

          bill, when you say dead

          is it the motor or drivetrain?

          mine has hundreds of jobs under it's wings.

          it's probably the smallest investment for the most return.

          even my plunger doesn't have payback like my k-39

          p.s. drain cleaning equipment can be addicting. just ask dirtyhands/adam

          phoebe it is

            For the last few years I buy exclusively from

            "Somewhere a Village is Missing Twelve Idiots!" - Casey Anthony

            I never lost a cent on the jobs I didn't get!
