  • Who's first?

    Which was first? The Ridgid K-60, The General Wire I95-1/2hp, or the Rothenberger 650? All similar designs. Who stole from who?

      Rick is sticking with his k-60. But the old suitcase style.

        I believe the k50 was first sectional. Between the 3 asked about the k60 was first. The rothenberger is still similar to the old k60

          it would actually be a kollmann k-60 suitcase style.
          not the current ridgid kollmann k-60sp.

            I think I remember seeing a patent paper on the k50 that was dated 1943. Can any Ridgid employees confirm?

              That's the sectional machine I used for years before.....and then the clouds parted, the sun shined down and showed me the light of the glorious drum machine. Ridgid Kollman 1500 with that 1.5" sectional cable and 6 reels of open wind. Sat on a small tripod and never could put two hands on the cable.

              Machine wouldn't operate without a hand on the forward gear.


              I don't care if I have to use preparation H hourly, I'm sold on ease of use.


              Remember that I have a real bad back, and still believe the drum is worth the weight. All in the legs Baaaaybee! Oh and sitting on a bucket really makes me sweat.
