February 19, 2019
Be one of the first to see the latest RIDGID® tools that are earning the respect of skilled tradespeople at WWETT, Feb. 21-23. FlexShaft™ Drain Cleaning Machines, SeeSnake® Cameras powered by TruSense™ and the K-5208 Sectional Machine will be available to experience first-hand at RIDGID Booth (#1245).

“The products we’re bringing to WWETT are industry game-changers,” said Wyatt Kilmartin, vice president and general manager, Global Underground Technologies, RIDGID. “Building on our history and leadership in this category, each product is purpose-built to enable contractors to do their jobs more effectively and efficiently. Whether that’s providing clearer pictures during in-pipe inspections, enabling jobs to be completed faster or reducing product weight we are excited to add new products that continue our legacy of offering the industry’s most complete line of professional drain cleaning and inspection tools.” 

The RIDGID portfolio of drain cleaning and inspection tools, each designed to complement each other, provides the strongest breadth and depth of products to meet the toughest jobsite challenge. New RIDGID drain cleaning and inspection tools at WWETT, all backed by the RIDGID Full Lifetime Warranty, include:

• FlexShaft Drain Cleaning Machines – A lightweight and fully-contained system that delivers a wallto-wall clean and is ideal for clearing grease, sludge, small tree roots and soft blockages. FlexShaft machines clear 1 1/4-inch to 4-inch pipes utilizing powerhouse chain knockers that expand to the size of the pipe to quickly clear the entire circumference. Inspection cameras can also remain in-pipe throughout the entire drain cleaning process for faster diagnosis and knowledge that the problem was solved in one pass.

• SeeSnake Cameras powered by TruSense – Experience the industry’s clearest in-pipe images with the new line of SeeSnake cameras powered by TruSense technology. Advanced HDR image sensors within the cameras provide unmatched clarity in low-light environments. TruSense also includes an integrated TiltSense™ feature that reports back the pitch of the camera in-pipe. This on-camera inclinometer helps contractors accurately identify and diagnose problems underground.

• K-5208 Sectional Machine – The most powerful, most compact, easiest-to-service and cleanest sectional machine on the market, the K-5208 Sectional Machine quickly cuts through the toughest problems.


In addition to experiencing the latest tools and equipment, visitors to the RIDGID booth will be able to enter the third annual RIDGID Experience contest. Six winners will be selected to receive an all-expenses-paid trip including: a VIP RIDGID facilities tour, a custom wrench, a fishing excursion and much more.
