The Model 975 Combo roll Groover is two tools in one. Like other RIDGID roll Groovers, the 975 mounts on the RIDGID 300 Power Drive for machine-powered roll grooving jobs, but is also designed to manually roll groove in-place pipe.


  • Auto Tracking & Depth Setting Gauge Means Easier Use - The 975 Combo Groover includes new, patented auto tracking technology for significantly easier grooving. Whether you're doing machine-powered or manual grooving, the AutoTrack gauge keeps the pipe automatically engaged to the groover throughout the grooving process. The 975 also includes a permanently depth setting gauge for quicker, repeatable set-up.
  • Less Hand Force Required - When manually roll grooving, the 975's 55% higher gear reduction means less hand force required versus competitive manual roll groovers. This is especially helpful for over-head roll grooving.
  • Durability And Portability - A tough, ductile iron construction means the 975 can absorb jobsite abuse and provide accurate grooves time after time. A cast-in handle makes the 975 easily portable to and from the jobsite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by I like that it can be used on machine or in place I've seen roll groovers used many times but I've never needed one until now. I read the instructions, set it up and it worked perfectly. I also needed to make a groove in place on a vertical pipe and that worked well also. I like seeing the instructions on the top of the tool so I don't have to stop and look it up. Not sure how long that will last with different people using the tool but it's good for now. I really liked how easy it was to follow the instructions and set it up for a first time user. I happened to have a tape to measure the groove because I've been in the trade for a long time but I thought it would have been included with the tool December 13, 2013

No the 975 can only be mounted to a 300 PD or a 300 Compact with the appropriate adapter.
