    Some thing weird going on there, Cobra just makes drain cleaners I thought not sewer machines? Even there web site doesn't list a big machine. Looks like somebody painted a Ridgid 7500 Blue and slapped a cobra sticker on it but hey who knows?

        here is my take on it.

        ridgid will private label anything for you if you buy enough of them.

        i'm just a few short for a "rick-60"

        as far as the propress goes. remember that ridgid and viega were in a partnership a few years back. ridgid supplied the pressing machines and viega the fittings.

        but as far as i can see, that cobra is a ridgid 7500 machine.


        with any luck the "rick-60" will be out next year

          My understanding is the delay on the release of the Rick-60 right now is they can't get the audio feature to turn off.

                Something aint right here. Looks like a carbon copy with a tiny change to the frame. Rick, your hypothesis is wrong about the branding thing ... cant always be right .

                Thanks for the heads up Ben.

                  i might be wrong about the branding thing

                  but that's a ridgid 7500 under the blue paint and black painted drum. guaranteed

                  either it's reversed engineered or someone is spoofing us with a label, blue and black paint. it says ridgid all over it

                      If you google a Cobra LX250 you come up with this.



                      I have a feeling this is a K-7500 which has been painted and has fake stickers on it.

                            I guess I was just a little bit slower than you. I went to the Cobra site after I found the Lowe's site to verify and found their mainline machine looked nothing like the one Ben posted.
