Are there any drawbacks to getting the higher rpm machine other than it requires a 20 amp breaker? Can you still thread up to 2" pipe at the higher speed. Does it work well with roll groovers? What about threading stainless?
Thank you for contacting RIDGID! You can still thread up to 2" with the 57 RPM, but we do not recommend it. Due to the higher RPM the life of your dies will be cut quite significantly. I would suggest giving our technical services a call so you can discuss more options and questions with them directly, I think it would be beneficial to talk to a technician directly.
