    Lot of realestate for a specialized machine.Big and bulky in the truck,cabinet or to try and reach in contorted positions while working.

      Yeah, it does take up more room.

      As far as contorted positions, I think it comes with a footswitch & autofeed along with the guide tube.

      Seems it would be pretty flexible & less fatiguing. But once again, I don't own one or know anyone that does.

        Same as I.
        Just seems like alot of stuff for 5/16
        Does it do 3/8 with different heads?

        Maybe one would be better of with what you got.

                Looks like the Ridgid K40. I like the looks of both.

                  Could you start using nothing but a new one? I'd be interested in how it does for you under that much use. I bet it is not made as well.

                  I've seen pics of the old ones and they looked like they had a decent drill attached in comparison to the new type.

                    i know what u mean about slinging black water everywhere and i've got scars and craploads of ripped shirts from the screws on my small cleaning machine. i really hate it when the 1/4" cable wraps around your neck thats usually when my 12yo son starts laughing at me. my pistol grip is the model s electric eel i always dread using it but its tough ive had it for about 10 years with no mechanical problems its the old model

                        ha ha it usually happens when i don't tightened the chuck enough and u hit a durham 90 and the cable slings out and i can't let go fast enough. my favorite though is when i was a kid and my brother was on the roof rodding a stack i went into check on things and there was a plastic plant off the back of the toilet going round and round in the air the cable came back through the toilet i guess u had to be there

                          When mine decided to give up I pulled the autofeed off and mounted it to an old K-38 ( I was surprised to see that it would work, I bet Rick does not have a K-38)

                          Check the old threads (last 60 days), I wanna say somebody had the same problem and bought a replacement motor for 20-30 bucks.

                          bill, i'll take you up on that bet, but do you better

                          i bet i have more than 1 k-38

                          last count, i have more than 10 hand guns including my very first one from 33 years ago when i was 13. a red milwaukee with the red steel drum

                          even a general cordless with a skil motor.

                          along with all my other hand guns.

                          1 day i will take a photo of my 30+ new cables i have on the shelf

                          wait for my new post on my new toy from today adam knows

                              Can't take them with you when you die. I bet Rick's got 20 different kinds of toilet paper depending on what he ate the night before.
