  • what is the deference between the 38 and the 39 ?

    I thought my hand held was a Ridgid 39 but looked at it the other day while working on a bathroom sink drain and it is a 38. What am I missing out on out side of a power feed ? I'm wanting to get a new 39 with power feed I bought the 38 after my Marco power feed gave up, some how I missed the switch from the 38 to the 39. What is the deference between the two ?. looks like the drill part is deferent anything else ? how's the power and weight compare ? any down side to the 39.

    the 38 uses a real drill motor converted to a snake. lots of power, actually too much power for the size cable.

    the 39 uses a motor designed for the snake and is sized accordingly.

    you'll love the dual feeding power feed on the k-39.

    it's fast and simple.

    convert your k-38 into a chuck for the real stubborn stoppages.

      I dont know about the 38 but the 39 has drums with different size cables and can put heads for the k50 on the 3/8 cable, gives lots of flexibility to the 39 and the power feed is awesome.

          k-38 here

          ever time i use my 38 i think i need a 39. now you tell me that my 38 is to powerful. i run a 5/16" x 50' general cable with cutter set. seems to work for me. power feed would be nice but i just motor right on through now. that's even better. 3.2 amps & 0-500 rpm. about the same as vee. 39 is i.i amps & 0-450 rpm. i have 50' because i get a lot of mobs. i'm sure a 39 weighs less than my 38, that's a thought to. pick your poison. breid
