RIDGID SeeSnake MAX rM200 Camera System

RIDGID SeeSnake® MAX rM200 Camera System Solves Problems!


The RIDGID SeeSnake MAX rM200 Camera System is one of those tools that provides a contractor with the  portability and versatility solution for pipe inspections.   Designed especially to  inspect  smaller, 1-½” to 6″ in diameter,  and longer pipes up to 200′ in length.

As a general contractor who often finds myself installing sump pumps and evaluating failing foundation drains I find myself hiring plumbing or inspection contractors at least four times a year. Unlike plumbers I need a system that covers a wide range of applications.

If you figure in the cost of $ 500 to $700 per visit to hire an inspection sub-contractor that is almost $3000.   The purchase of the rM200 would pay for itself  after the fifth job.

The RIDGID SeeSnake MAX rM200 Camera System features a newly designed push cable that resists abrasion and allows the user  and more efficient push-ability.

RIDGID also improved the reel mechanics for easier passage through tight turns, an ultra-compact camera capable of providing optimal lighting through narrow spaces and an upgraded cable (200′), which provides greater abrasion resistance and allows users to push further with less effort.

The rM200 inspection system also comes with a built-in docking system for attaching upcoming viewing monitors and is compatible with the RIDGID SeeSnake CS10 and CS1000 digital recording monitors.

A portable transport can either carry the reel or use an optional wheel system for better job site portability.
