STAFDA members will be among the first to experience a new game-changing tool for mechanical contractors – the first of its kind on the market – along with other recent purpose-built innovations that will save time on the jobsite when they stop by the RIDGID booth (#1628-1630).

“We’re always excited at RIDGID to attend tradeshows like STAFDA, to not only be able to share our latest innovations with STAFDA Partners, but to also learn about what they are experiencing on the jobsite. Our tools are purpose-built for the trades and the feedback we receive helps us create future tools that solve for issues we learn about from those we meet during shows,” said Jim Madden, director of North American sales, Emerson Professional Tools.

In addition to learning more about that first-of-its-kind new mechanical contracting tool that will significantly increase productivity, products featured in the RIDGID booth and available for demo include:

• FlexShaft Drain Cleaning Machines – A lightweight and fully-contained system that delivers a wall-to-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 with TruSense – Some of the newest RIDGID tools are the SeeSnake cameras with TruSense technology, featuring HDR (High Dynamic Range) and TiltSense. HDR allows for fewer blown-out areas and sections of the pipe that are too dark to see, offering superior clarity and detail.

TiltSense is an on-camera inclinometer measuring the camera's angle in-pipe, giving a useful indicator of the pitch of the camera. This means less guess work to identify issues or help diagnose proper pipe pitch.

• CS6x Versa Digital Reporting Monitor – Eliminate the hassle of trying to find a suitable location to place your monitor while doing a plumbing inspection with the CS6x Versa digital reporting monitor with Wi-Fi, the flexible, efficient solution for plumbing inspections. It features a unique pivoting frame for high and low monitoring positions to allow flexible placement and optimal viewing. The CS6x Versa works with all RIDGID SeeSnake camera reels and easily docks onto RIDGID Compact series reels, including the SeeSnake Compact C40 and M40, for efficient transport, storage and operation.
