    I'm going to GUESS around 275lbs with 100' of 3/4" cable, anchor and leader.

      The 300 weighs 138 pounds versus 147 pounds for the 1065 and 139 pounds for the 2001. All of the weights are with just a pigtail no cable.

        The 300 weighs 108lbs with a 7' .55 anchor cable. The website is incorrect, the 300 manual is correct.

          I have a 1065 and I have never officially weight it, but I leave that old heavy bastard at the shop now that I have the Model C. The 1065 is a great machine, and if your used to using a 300 then it wouldn't be a bad option. There is not much the Model C can clear, that the 1065 couldn't do either. The Model C just just it safer, easier, and does a better job. That is way I use it now over the 1065.

            What would be something that the Model C doesn't clear that you would run into?

              Nothing yet. I have had one sewer line give me trouble. It was a 6" clay sewer that has to be rodded from the basement through a 3" cast iron wye. I got it flowing, but the sewer has broken hubs, bellies, misalignment's. Needs to be replaced, but the home owner wont do it. I couldn't get it open with the 1065 or with a K1500. The Model C finally got it flowing. HAd a hard time with it because of all the problems the line has. Just needs to be replaced.

                i have the general 82/88. pretty much the identical machine to the model c. i've used it instead of my timberwolf on long hard runs. it has yet to let me down.

                not too heavy to load and very simple and safe to use. but remember that at any given time i have at least 10' of cable flopping on the floor, sometimes closer to 40' especially on the way out.

                the 82 doesn't get nearly as much use as my timberwolf and therefore stays at the shop for its turn.

                  Rick,

                  You think you could post some pics of you 82/88? I'd like to see how it compares to my Model C. What HP do you have and what RPMs does it spin at? I got 3/4 hp on my Model C at 500 RPMs. I'm the opposite of you. I have the drill also, yet I go to the Model C most of the times. I use the drill mostly only on roof jobs.

                    Re: Model C.....

                    will, i thought i had some stored on my computer, but all i can find right now are from my old post of 2007.

                    so i'll also provide a link to the thread.

                    http://www.ridgidforum.com/forum/t12572-3/

                    here is the general link to the #88. the *82 is an older model and i think it was just a clutch upgrade.

                        it's a ridgid 4'' x 6'' expanding cutter, that i reworked and welded on a coupler. i have them for my 7500, 82/88 and of course my 1500 that's original design.

                        also have the 6'' x 8'' expander too haven't manned up yet to find a 6'' c/o with a 8'' branch yet. typically my jetter would be the call for the big stuff.

                                it's held up very well. the blades are super thick and 1'' wide. allows me to sharpen them as needed. the ridgid unit is sold as a finishing cutter. looks like the eel is more of an agressive cutter with teeth and 3 blades.
