What Raptor Users are Saying

David DeMayola | American Rooter & Drain

“When our guys have a choice of what machine to use, they pull the Raptor off the truck. You can unload it with one person and carry it up and down stairs easily. It saves time and time definitely is money.”

FAQs

Why do I need an E-Clutch?

The E-Clutch built into The Raptor is there to protect both the machine and its end user. The integrated Smart Drive Technology prevents the shaft from being over-torqued. If your shaft becomes stuck or cannot rotate, the E-Clutch turns off the machine before it damages itself or the user.

This, combined with adjustable torque, make The Raptor the safest high-speed machine on the market today

What happens if I lose the bluetooth remote?

If you were to lose just the foot petal, you can simply order a replacement! If you lose the Control Unit, you will have to send the machine in for a replacement and reprogramming. Luckily, our repair and return turnaround is very quick!

What's so special about the QuickFit Interchangeable Reels?

Our QuickFit interchangeable reels allow you to have different-sized shafts pre-loaded on their own basket. This enables you to quickly swap between sizes or add additional length to your shaft pulling one basket off and installing another. This can be done in less than a minute. Gone are the days of having to unspool and re-coil a shaft onto your milling machine.
