  • K-60 Obsolete???

    I called up Ferguson's and I asked them if they carried the K-60. They never even heard of it and they did a search on their computer and said it was obsolete.

    Did I just get a new guy or don't they make them anymore? Should I look elsewhere?

    Thanks in advance for any help

        When I purchase my first snake (in 24 years of const. plumbing),it will be the K-60 thanks to the advice of the wise mentors here.

        Yes FERGY was in the dark.Just cause a distributor doesn't make enough profit off a product is no reason for a counter person to say they are obsolete.

        I wonder if you could tell us which city this ferguson was in?

        I would like to talk to em.

        I know the guys at three different Fergusons in my area and even though they don't have many Ridgid products on display I know for a fact they would not give out that type of misleading info once they understood the advantages of the product we are talking about.

          Don't go to fergusons. I got quoted 2100. Went to blackbookoftools.com and got it for low 1300s. K60 is not obsolete by any means.

            there are times i think there should be laws against salepeople. i've been lied to and when you confront them they act like it's your fault.

            there is a MAJOR dealer in Michigan that i called out and was told my order wasn't large enough. i told them wher to stick it and went all the way to the owner. explained my situation and he was very apologetic, especiAlly when i explained to him i'd take my "little" $2500 order elsewhere.

              make sure ya know which package they quoted you on. Depends on how much cable and which tools come with the package. Price can vary. ferguson probably gave ya the high end package price.

                Fergusons confuses me.
                They were the BEST price I could get on a 60 gal SuperStor indirect, bar none, just 6 months ago.
                Yesterday, the price was up over 30%..they were the highest this time.
                I know the MFG just upped the price, but I found one at another local supplier for what I got it at 6 months ago....several hundred dollars difference.
                They just bought out a major competitor here...they're the biggest in the country, that makes me nervous when they are price gouging.

                  Tell me about it D/B,
                  Two weeks ago it they were 30% higher than everyone else on a $3,000 job quote now this week at a different branch there 20% lower on a $7,000 quote for a different project,the type of material was the same on both products.

                  If they can do that on a whim you better beleive I going to be spending a lot more time negotiating with supply houses without feeling bad for being a PITA

                    It is a smart man who double check material quotes before he buys.

                      I am a big PITA Adam, everyone teases me about how cheap I am, but you know what, this is what gives you a competative edge. I find one guy in the back office and one at the counter, treat them great so they are more willing to put up with my crap

                        Mark,
                        I agree...was all good till a week ago I was in a pinch.
                        I'd priced boilers at several suppliers...one that was right down the road from the job that I like in particular (they know me by voice when I call).
                        I wound up going elsewhere over a $400 difference. (thats food outta my families mouths as I see it)
                        On inspection I was told the vent outlet needed to be 6" higher than state requires per local ordinance, but he signed off as long as I agreed to fix it immediately.
                        Naturally I went to the closest supplier.
                        Guy I know at the counter says "Still want the boiler to go with that?"
                        He was smirking...he understands. (I hope)

                          Ben, I was quoted at 1400.00 for my K-60, give or take a few dollers, the least expensive quote I recieved, and it was from ferguson. You need a new salesman buddy By the time you pay taxes and shipping, it will be around 1400.00 less the instand gratification issue

                            I got the 60 w/ the 7/8" cable kit, rear guide hose and toolbox with cutter heads. I forgot the model number but it was the exact same kind at ferguson that I got at black book. That much of a price difference is inexcusable.
