            Rick, maybe you can on a little trip and bring us back some Ridgid Euro Goodies? There's gotta be a reason for this madness! Maybe too much competition on certain stuff in the states? Doesn't seem likely but who knows

              My theory is that the K-60 has to compete with the Rothenberger machines in Europe that are extremely popular (I think the original K-60 was a Rothy copy). That is to say that they match the Rothenberger line in Europe to match up better to what Euro plumbers are used to using and seeing.

              Plumbers in the US are used to seeing the KM-1500 or a drum machine used on 6" lines, so why spend $$$ on marketing equipment that they do not feel they will sell a lot of?

              Most popular machines in Chicago are the 1500 and the Spartan 1065, with the eel close behind.

              It took hatchbacks a while to become trendy and popular in the US, even though they had been very popular in Europe for decades.

              I'm sure the more of it that we buy or ask for, the more likely they are to include it in the catalog.

              BTW, the Ridgid C-10 IC cannot hold a candle to the general 7/8 IC cable. the general is a LOT stiffer. IMO the Ridgid IC cable is more likely to bounce around and/or past some root balls and debris because it's so flexible (I've verified this with a camera too). The general IC is heavier and stiffer, so it stays centered a lot better.

              The general cables are stronger and $30 cheaper than the Ridgid (when you can get them, Rod sorry dude you got screwed).
