  • South Coast Equipment?

    I know this is a ridgid site but does anyone have any honest experience who can offer an honest opinion about sewer camera products offered on e-bay by South Coast Equipment?

    I presently need the use of a sewer camera just enough for it to be a major inconvenience when I need one and don't have one. I am very reluctant to purchase a Ridgid or GenEye since based on current demand I estimate it would take probably 2.5 years to pay for itself based on an inspection price of $269.00 (prices seem to range from $200 - $300 in this area).

    Now, if Rick would just give up one from his vast collection for a decent price, I would probably go ahead and bite, but since I know his wife won't let him sell off her life insurance like that, I'm left to look into other options.

    So, back to Southcoast. Does anyone have any first hand experience? They offer a 512mhz transmitter but I haven't seen any locater to go with it. Does this mean that any locator that operates on 512mhz will locate this transmitter? Is this a standard frequency used by most locators, Ridgid for example?

    These cameras seem to be a good bit less expensive than others I have seen but being very leary of purchasing something like this based solely on a picture and manufacturers product description, and being keenly aware of the buyers axioms of "you get what you pay for" and "caviat emptor" I don't want to buy something that is going to dissapoint me in it's quality. So please enlighten me about Southcoast, one way or the other, if you can.

    Thanks.

    Never heard of South Coast Equipment before but the systems look like something they build themselves. Have you considered the 93502 it is considerable less than some of the other systems, very compact and easy to use.

    For the transmitter you should be able to use that with something like the SR-20 it can pick up a wide range of signals but again I have no experience with that transmitter.

      Dont buy south coast equipment !!!!

      WARNING! WARNING! DONT BUY SOUTH COAST EQUIPMENT I THOUGHT I WOULD SAVE ALOT OF MONEY NOT GOING WITH RIGID CAMERAS AND TRY OUT CAMERAS FROM SOUTH COAST EQUPMENT, I SPENT MORE THEN 7K AND BOUGHT 2 CAMERAS AND THEY FELL APART AFTER A COUPLE OF USES.thats why they dont offer a warranty.

      I have a shop of 40 employees, own 11 rigid cameras and they still work today, yes they are expensive but its the only way to go . I learned a big lesson.

          i spoke to them recently about jetter trailers.

          either their website is off or the the guy i talked to is clueless.

          from what i can tell, it's both.

          not sure if it's worth a 1 hour drive to irvine just to educate them about jetters. they are so far off with their specs, it's a joke.

          31 hp. gas they claim is good for 16gpm at 3500#

          it takes 50.9 gas or 38.4 electric.

          so i asked if it was a 2 engine machine and he said no. funny as the specs don't jive and the web site talks about 2 engines and pumps

          not impressed either that they advertise 2 for sale on ebay and the fact is they build them to order. nothing is ready to buy and drive

              Charging less does not mean more call volume it just means you have to work harder to reach your goals.

                update on southcoast equipment.

                they're a bunch of crooks

                i fell for a too good to be deal on ebay back on 9/11/10, not only me but 99 others that were buying jetters for $99.00 and up no reserve. i won 1 with a bid at $107.00 plus tax. i was going to pick it up at their shop approx 40 miles away.

                they were suppose to be delivered between 7-15 days to the people that paid the $129.00 for shipping. of course i was going to pick mine up. now it's been 61 days and they refuse to take my calls.

                ebay has removed their ebay store and listings. based on feedback, none were delivered.

                lets see what they have to say when i take them to court.

                anyone else in the same boat?

                    beyond mad. they don't return calls and when you call they have nothing to say.

                    basically took my money 61 days ago and have not called to tell me the machine is ready for pickup.

                    if i get a refund from my cc company, then i basically gave them a 2 month interest free loan. multiply that by the 99 others that are in the same boat.

                    they never had the product on hand in the first place.

                    time to take rosie there to sniff out the truth

                      SCE sold nothing but Junk! I had one of their cameras when I started up broke on the first job. They made good on it and the new one was crap too.
                      Sorry you got burnt Rick and to all the others. I took my first ever bid on ebay and lost. Hearing this makes me more nervous to bid on a k60 on ebay being a small company I can't afford a $1000 dollar loss.

                          Re: South Coast Equipment?

                          didn't get the email. but i did get a check from them that i picked up today, stating that i broke their rules by not contacting the owner directly and therefore they have refunded my money.

                          of course that's their way of blowing off the 100 people that have given them a 60 plus day no interest loan.

                          trying to get the owner to return a call is like asking the president to pick up. they never make the call except at the beginning to ask for a credit card payment on a sunday.

                          the owner is either never there and the one time i actually did talk to him was after several attempts were made to contact him, he returned my call. of course the 45 days - 60 days he assured me have come and gone. of course he sweet talked me into waiting and dropping my claim with ebay. and of course after 60 days you have no recourse with your credit card company. he knows how to play the game.

                          lets see how he plays in court

                          all i can say is i'm not the only one that was used for a loan.

                            That's why I stay away from lesser known brands - especially on ebay.

                              Thats why I by from a known sewer equipment supplier. Yes I may pay more than what you won the bid on Ebay, but I know I will get my product and good service.

                              Sorry you guys have to go through this though. I seen their Ebay auctions, they flooded Ebay with them. Just their layout and the way the flooded Ebay with them made me think they where a shady company.

                              I wish you all luck in getting what you paid for or getting your money back.
