  • Ridgis Propress RP330-C

    The RP330C doesn't have a battery - uses a power cord. Looks like the model is real new - anyone seen them for sale online anywhere? toolup.com doesn't have them as well as a couple of others.

    I was told the 330 has a 18 volt battery and will go 33,ooo presses before service--obviously, an 18 volt will last a lot longer on those big jobs--we are close to getting a new press, as we are using ours more and more everyday--the 330b is looking real good now and it has a 270 degree swivel head--im not sure if its released yet, but most likely as my supplier sent me all the info on the 2 new ones--corded and cordless

    propress is the best tool on the market--especially when that old gate valve wont shut all the way off!!!!!

      the roundup was a good source of top secret info.

      the corded version was in the works.

      talk to ridgid dave for the scoop.

          FWIW

          At the Roundup, I held the RP330C in my left hand while holding the RP330B in my right

          The corded version actually felt heavier because it wasn't balance by the extra few ounces of the battery. Unless you had this thing in your hand all day I doubt it would make a difference.

              Thanks Tyman, forgot all about good ol' Grainger. Our standard discount price is $2430 - a bit better than the 2700 book price. I can probably get the cost down a little more by asking our grainger rep for a special quote.

              I owe you one!

                Great observation!

                Actually, I am looking to buy the cord model so there are no batteries to maintain/charge. I like simple, especially for tools we won't use every day.

                  Tell me about it... another tankless retrofit with a leaky main has convinced me that the $2400 is a good investment!

                    the propress does to copper what the k-60 does to drains

                    now, if i start preaching the advantages of a propress over soldering,

                    will allclear start debating me over propress vs. soldering

                    i've been using propress longer than i've been using a k-60

                    so if you like the k-60

                    you'll love the propress

                    i have a family of 5

                    rick.

                    the 330 will make 6

                      I like tools with cords. I much less likley to bounce them off the nearest wall when the battery goes dead in the middle of doing something.

                          I don't doubt it but my issue is that I won't be the one to use the tool. It will be shared throughout the company and too much hassle keeping up with batteries. No new construction either - getting power not a problem. Thanks for the advise though.
