  • Bought a new ProPress tool

    Got the larger Rothenberger Romax AC ECO corded model, it's on it's way. Didn't buy the newer model with the gun type grip, found a great deal on this one. Does anyone use this tool? What do you think of it?


    Also posted my compact Rothenberger under "tool deals" on the forum if anyone is interested. It is for sale after I receive my new kit this week if anyone is interested. If not I'll list it on ebay this weekend, thanks.

          Thanks, I've been wanting the capability to do larger fittings for a while now. Getting more into boiler work and most of the time it's 1 1/4" or larger copper. I may regret selling the smaller one, it's been great for all service related work and gets in the tight spots but I think this new one can also get in the tight spots, maybe just not all of them.

            While I've considered offering on your compact, I think you should keep it. Lighter, smaller, and can go do several fittings in an area or crawlspace with no power.

            Hope you like your new purchase. Please review what's good and bad about it.

            Thanks.

                I've said this before, a propress tool will pay for itself faster than you would ever believe. I paid for my first kit with the first large job I did with it. No that does not mean I over charged the customer to pay for my new tool. It means I used my normal profit from that job and paid off the tool, big difference.
                There are a couple of companies around here installing new boilers and they use the ProPress for the larger piping now I can too. Level playing field because customers around here are asking for ProPress.
                You should see the face of your customers when they see that new water heater hard plumbed using propress fittings. It sells itself.

                  went to pick up a couple 3'' xlc caps today. they had a rems unit that needed to go back to the factory for service.

                  with the ridgid propress, i can have it ups pick up on a monday and returned before the end of the week.

                  the 2- 3'' caps are for a job tomorrow for another plumber. he wants me to cap 2 lines that were cut off and stolen last week. water doesn't shut off 100% and with the propress it doesn't matter.

                    Don't stop with the boiler guys. You can also pick up the work from the softener folks as well. Plus the schools, hospitals, hotels, pump suppliers, property managers, fast food venues, just to name a few. Actually, anyone that needs the water back on with as little interruption as possible. I also believe that one should make more than normal profit off a ProPress job because IMHO you're smarter than your competition, by having it available to better serve your customers.

                    But that's just me.
                    Congrats on the purchase

                      Thanks, some great advice! I'm hoping to have the new larger kit by the end of this week and then I put out the word. Yeeeha, it's the little things like this that keeps me motivated and going.

                          Got my new ProPress today. I like it, but a lot heavier than the one I have now. Yikes!

                          The compact goes up for sale just after 9:30 Central time tonight, I lowered the price for a quick sale. Thanks for looking.
