  • k-60 used or new?

    Found local craigslist offer- k60-used 3 times paid 1680 last year-105 ft 7/8 cable price 900 firm. How long is the factory cable good for before it needs replacement and how can a visual inspection determine if cable needs to be replaced? Where is the best price on a new unit? Thanks-k 60 it is but which-new-used? Motown

    I bought one from ToolUp last week http://www.toolup.com/ridgid/66497.html

    Unless you had a new and used cable side by side it would be difficult to the untrained eye to see the difference.

    $900 not bad if it comes with all the trimmings

        Look at the cable and see if there are any flat spots. Uncoil every sections to look for kinks. The k60 itself is pretty sturdy. Just make sure everything feels smooth with no corrosion.
        Buy cheap, buy twice.

          bought my first k-60 used and other than a couple of bearings, it's still in service.

          the cable is pretty easy to inspect as ben has mentioned.

          also remove the 2 allen bolts to access the clutch assembly and look for wear, rust and gunk.

          the main bearings front and rear should spin with no play or hard spots.

          if it truly has only been used a few times, heck the grease hasn't even dripped yet.

          $900. is a very, very good deal.

            I got mine with the full package used for $881.00 shipped to my door off E-Bay.

            I been screwed a couple times but this one sure made up for them.

            This machine has already paid for itself in six months.
