The new, Model 975 Combo Roll Groover is two tools in one! Like other RIDGID® groovers, the 975 mounts on the RIDGID 300 Power Drive for machine grooving jobs, but it is also designed to manually groove in-place pipe. Auto Tracking And Depth Setting Gauge Means Easier Use The 975 Combo Roll Groover includes a patented auto tracking technology for significantly easier grooving. Whether you’re doing machine or manual grooving, auto tracking keeps the pipe automatically engaged to the groover throughout the grooving process. The 975 also comes with a permanently-fixed depth setting gauge for quicker, repeatable set-up. Less Hand Force Compared to competitive units, the 975 has a 55% higher gear reduction requiring less hand-force for manual grooving. This is especially helpful for overhead grooving. Durability And Portability A tough, ductile iron construction means the 975 can absorb job site abuse and provide accurate grooves time after time. And its cast-in handle makes the 975 easily portable to and from the job site.
