  • Hello first post / ridgid/ rothenburger k 60 copy

    Looks like the chineese have finally gotten around to copying the K-60.

    Looking at the picture on e-bay from craig's affordable tools there is a pipe drain cleaning machine called ths STD 125.
    It looks like the old style projector box K-60 buy it has the capacity of the K50 it uses 5/8th sectional cable and you can snap on a small drum on the rear of the unit. It is probably total junk. Has any one seen this unit before or used it ? Thanks David

      I have enough problems from eating sewage. I don't need any STD's.
      This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

            i looked at these. no one would fess up to having one. i watched craig aff tools. he didn't appear to sell any. i was concerned about repair parts. i didn't just get off the boat. i know that there is quite a bit of engineering that goes into making cables work for instance. any one think these people do this? i bought a used k-60sp on ebay. i've got something i will be able to get stuff for. craigs affordable tool and toolz unlimited both appear to have the same items. craigs were reading a script to me when i called them. besides where else but here can you get great info? plus laughed at for stupid questions. lol. your call. breid

              reverse engineering is a very common practice when you take the best money can buy and steal the design with exact dimensions and knock off parts.

              i would imagine it's a close clone to the ridgid line. but it's got junk in the trunk

                I hate to say it but pretty soon we will have to rely on China to loan us money to survive. Maybe the new slogan should be "If you can't buy American buy Chinese". Or even worse "Buy American, China is".

                  We are talking about the k-60. That would make it a sectionally transmitted disease that Ace is afraid of

                      I own the Rothenberger machines, they work real good, but never had a chance to use the Chinese made ones. I have seen them up close at Allan J Coleman. They seem to be decent enough for the $$$. But I rather stick with Ridgid or Rothenberger.

                          Thanks, I noticed they sell cutters, and augers for sectional cable they even sell 50" of cable in a carrier for $125.- Presently I have enough K 50 cable and K 60 cable.

                            I have also heard the quality wasn't there, for occasional use it might do ok
