601PD Power Drive weighs only 15.4 pounds, yet delivers plenty of torque for threading through 1 1/4” pipe. A safety arm is always included, as is a carrying case. No load forward speed is 25 RPM, with a fast reverse switch that allows 60 RPM backoff to expedite jobs. The REVERSE button on the power drive is used to properly and quickly remove the threader drophead or die head from the pipe that has just been threaded. (There is no threading done in the REVERSE position.) An entire power drive kit (#05244, #05245) weighs from 30 to 32 pounds, making the 601PD the easiest machine to get to gas pipe and other on-site jobs. 601PD power drive uses R11 Enclosed Dropheads or RIDGID® 11-R dropheads. 601V Safety Arm absorbs the forces generated when threading and frees up the operator to oil the dies during threading.
