    Default Rothenberger R600

    G'day guys,
    I find it interesting that Rothenberger don't have much of the market in the states. Is there a reason for this?
    I've had my trusty R 600 machine for a bit over 20 years and has rarely let me down. Although Rigid are the most popular in OZ, Rothenberger still have a fair market share.

    Never heard of one but we have had the same machine (62 yrs) since 1952. I know, it is a Roto-Rooter and there are a few out there that don't like (the company) it. It's not the company but the person that has the franchise.

    Ridgid and Rothenberger are too similar for both to be successful. Ridigd is King here in the States, there to far ahead for Rothy to break into the market share.

    You're right, I will get my daughter to teach me to post pictures. I'm a dumb azz when it comes to that stuff.
