Using any model of Easy Riser requires a portable power drive.   You can use any portable power drive that will thread 2" schedule 40 steel pipe.  The options are as follows:

  Least expensive: 
Northern Threader part number 190933 available from Northern.  Click HERE to follow the link to their web site for current prices.
Used portable power drives.  Rigid 700 portable power drives are rugged pieces of equipment.  Our customers have and use Rigid 700's that are 25 years old.  These are available from used tool distributors or via ebay or similar web sources. We recommend that you check the brushes and change them as necessary and grease the head.
  Moderate expense: 
Talcott Mountain Engineering stocks the REMS Amigo 2.  These are rugged, modern technology portable power drives made to high German quality standards.  by REMS in Frankfurt Germany. The REMS Amigo 2 is better than the more expensive drives in some ways. We sell them for several hundred dollars less than the more expensive drives. Check the Portable Power Drive Options page for current prices. Click HERE to follow the link to the REMS web site.
  Most expensive:
The Ridgid 700 is the most common drive but also one of the most expensive. They are always available used for around half of the new cost. Other drives in this price range include the Rothenberg Supertronic and the Ridgid 690. Click HERE to go to the Ridgid 700 web page, HERE to go to the Rothenberg web page.

  Battery Power for Remote Locations, Solar Wells or Freedom from Cords
Milwaukee, Dewalt and Rothenberger make battery powered drives that will power your Easy Riser. Both products will develop the full capability of Easy Riser pump pullers and will thread up to 2” pipe using Rigid style dies. Battery powered drives offer a very handy alternative but are as expensive as a new Rigid 700. Click HERE to go to the Milwaukee website. Click HERE to go to the Dewalt website. Click HERE to go to the Rothenberger website.

In addition to a portable power drive, you will need the following:

An overhead pipe frame.  This is made from standard schedule 40 galvanized pipe.  Instructions are in the owner’s manual. We don't ship these with the units because you would pay more for shipping than the pipe is worth, and most customers have ready access to 3/4 and 1 1/4 inch pipe and fittings.

A boat winch, chain fall, or come along.  You probably have one of these.

If you like a pendant control, you may want to consider the model 1972 pneumatic pendant.  Click HERE to learn more about the model 1972 pendant.
