  • Ridgid Rods & Corkscrew

    I just picked upped 3' rods (60355) at a supply house, They were OLD stock but still brand new.

    Im looking into ordering a 6" corkscrew (62105) Does that come with the Tool Connector (61885, r-8) Do i have to order that seperate? The ridgid book is VERY hard to understand on this product

    The corkscrew comes with the r 8. We can supply it with the r2 coupling that will fit on the rods the r 2 is in stock but the corkscrew has to be ordered. We will put a r 2 no extra charge. If not you must change the coupling on the first rod or buy a tool adapter either will cost much more. You can call the allan j coleman co 773 728 2400 and talk to shane, if you talk to kirk tell him to talk to me about it as he is a little new at it. I am out of the office next week also marvin

          I have one 3 foot rod that has the small end on one side and the larger end on the other so I could use the 1 1/4 cutters. Then we have enough 5' rods to do 1000'

          What machine are you spinning these rods with? We use an old K-1000 with the 3 speek gear box.

            My plan was to use them on sewer repairs when we have the trench open, and you shine your light down the 6"clay line and see roots under the road. I hate snaking it with an open trench, its a mess! i was going to turn them by hand. i would never be turning more than about 30' at most. The ridgid book is So confusing on these

                  Did you turn the rod by hand? BTW, excellent Mother tat.
                  Buy cheap, buy twice.

                      Now all you need is 500' of them rods and a K-1000 to spin them.
