- 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 AutoTracking 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.

975 Combo Roll Groover is rated out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Timothy from I contemplated this purchase for several years, but had purchased an off brand roll groover instead. Now that I have used the 975, I wish that I had made the purchase eight to ten years earlier. Solid piece of equipment. I don't think you'll go wrong if you purchase the 975, don't hesitate like I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheSprinklerGuy from Durable and very mobile We are a Fire Sprinkler Service and Installation company and we keep one in each truck. We cannot get the job done without it. Its durable and easily moved from machine to using it in the air or where ever you need it. Highly recommended by this company and will continue to use Rigid simply because they understand the work we do and have the tools to get it done right and, in a lot of cases, quickly. Sometimes we do not have time to mess with complicated tools we need to get to the service call, assess the situation and perform the necessary work and Rigid is right there! Thanks Rigid, Keep up the Great Work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andy6211 from Does not roll off pipe! Many other groovers tend to roll off the pipe when grooving. This groove or however is easy to use on the machine as well as in the air grooving on a piece of pipe that is already installed. Will not fit into tight spaces like the 915 Roll groover but definitely recommended for quick fabrication of pipe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by medmech1010 from 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
