Rated 5 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Portable and rock solid I started out with a really old, used model 460 many years ago. Even though it looked like it had been through a war, it worked perfectly. Eventually I treated myself to a brand new one, and later added the model 425. These purchases were great investments. The Ridgid Tristands are super durable, super heavy duty made and just a pleasure to use. I've never had a single problem with any of my tristands. One time during a pretty bad construction accident, my 425 got shoved around and was buried. When it was finally recovered it just had some scratches and had lost 2 of its rubber feet. I called Ridgid and they sent me a pack of the feet for free.. December 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the portability The slice handle on the middle post is the greatest improvement from the old style pipe vise. December 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Heavy duty. Nice and portable We use this all the time for all sorts of stuff in addition to cutting and threading. I would not be able to get by without it. Totally heavy duty and we abuse it every day. November 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great onsite stand This is a great portable stand to setup and move job to job as needed. If your in construction and thread pipe you probably already own one. November 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is a must have on the job site. The tristand is an essential. Very sturdy product and lasts a lifetime! November 22, 2014

The main difference between the VF and VJ models is the legs fold on the new VF-99 Folding Pipe Stand (Cat No 22168) making it easy to transport and requiring 70% less area to store. The difference between the VJ-98 and the VJ-99/VF-99 is the height adjustment specifications. The VJ-98's height adjustment from Low - High would be 20-38 inches. The VF-99/VJ-99 height adjustments from Low - High would be 28-52 inches.
