19 Turn the power drive switch to the position
that will produce clockwise rotation of the
chuck when viewed from the front of the tool.
On the Ridgid 300 and Victaulic VPD752, putting the switch in the Reverse position will pro-
VE272FS
duce clockwise rotation of the chuck, lower roll
and pipe.
20 Depress foot switch and check chuck and
lower roll direction and tool stability. If rotation
is counterclockwise, move power drive switch
to opposite position. If tool wobbles, make sure
tool is mounted squarely in chuck and tool is
level. If the wobble cannot be eliminated, the
power drive support arms are bent or the power
drive is damaged. Have the power drive repaired if wobble persists.
21 Disconnect power. Turn power drive off or
unplug power drive.
22 If an optional stabilizer assembly was ordered (separately), attach it to the right side of
the tool using the four hex socket cap screws
and four lock washers provided. A hex key is

VE272FS
PRE-OPERATION ADJUSTMENTS
CAUTION
®
Every Victaulic tool is checked, adjusted and
tested at the factory prior to shipment. Before
grooving, however, the following adjustments
must be made in sequence to make sure of
proper tool operation.
• For maximum grooving roll life, remove foreign material and loose rust.
• Foreign material such as coarse scale or dirt might
interfere with or damage the grooving rolls or distort
the groove. Rust is an abrasive material and will tend
to wear out the surface of the grooving rolls.
WARNING
• Always disconnect power before servicing or making
any tool adjustments unless instructed otherwise.
• Accidental start up of tool may result in serious personal injury.
Victaulic recommends that pipe shall be
square ended. When using beveled pipe, standard wall or less, the bevel should not exceed
37,5°. Square ended pipe must be used with
FlushSeal® and EndSeal® gaskets. For heavier
pipe walls, square ended pipe is also required.
Grooving Rolls
Groovable Pipe Lengths
Make sure the proper roll set is on the tool for
the pipe size and material to be grooved. Rolls
are marked with the pipe size, part number and
color coded for the pipe material to be grooved.
See "Tool Rating and Roll Selection" charts. If
proper rolls are not on tool, refer to "Roll Changing".
The VE272FS is capable of grooving short pipe
lengths without the use of a pipe stand (see Table 1), or long pipe lengths up to double randoms (approximately 12,2 m.) with the use of
appropriate pipe stands.
Short Pipe Lengths
CAUTION
• Make sure roll retaining bolts and set screws are tight.
• Loose retaining bolts or set screws could seriously
damage both the tool and rolls.
Pipe Preparation
For proper tool operation, and production of
proper pipe grooves, carefully observe the following pipe preparation tips.
• Pipe ends should be cut squarely in accordance with Column 1 note in the appropriate
chart under "Roll Groove Specifications".
• Internal or external weld bead or seams must
be ground flush with the pipe surface extending 51 mm back from the pipe end.
• The end of the pipe, both inside and out, must
be cleaned of loose rust, coarse scale, dirt
and other foreign material.
14
Table 1 shows minimum and maximum pipe
lengths that can be grooved without the need
for a pipe stand. Refer to "Grooving Operation"
for instructions on how to groove short pipe
lengths. For pipe longer than shown in Table 1,
refer to "Long Pipe Lengths".
WARNING
• Grooving rolls can crush or cut
fingers and hands.
• Loading and unloading pipe will
place your hands close to the rollers.
• Never groove pipe shorter than
what is recommended (See
"Groovable Pipe Lengths").

• Failure to position pipe and pipe stand in accordance
with the figures shown may result in serious personal
injury or property damage.
Roll Guard Adjustment
The VE272FS guards must be adjusted every
time rolls are changed or pipe size or wall thickness is different from pipe previously grooved.
WARNING
• Always disconnect power before servicing or making
any tool adjustments unless instructed otherwise.
• Accidental start up of tool may result in serious personal injury.
1 Make sure the proper roll set is on the tool
for the pipe size and material to be grooved.
Rolls are marked with the pipe size, part number and color coded for the pipe material to be
grooved. See "Tool Rating and Roll Selection"
charts. If proper rolls are not on tool, refer to
"Roll Changing".
CAUTION
Pipe position will affect pipe flare.
• When pipe end flare is excessive, right-to-left tracking
must be kept to a minimum. It may be necessary to
use less than 0,5°.
Make sure tool is level (see "Tool Setup").
• If pipe is grooved with back end of pipe (end of pipe
which is not in tool) higher than the end being
grooved, pipe may not track and excessive pipe end
flare may result.
• Assembly of couplings on pipe exceeding Maximum
Allowable Flare (see "Roll Groove Specifications"
charts) may prevent closure of couplings pad-to-pad,
allowing possible pipe separation, and result in property damage.
• Also, joint leakage may result due to excessive gasket
distortion/damage.
NOTICE
For additional information about pipe stands, refer to the
Operating Instructions included with your pipe stand.

3 Set groove diameter stop to pipe size and
schedule/thickness to be grooved. To do this,
back off the depth adjuster lock, align the depth
adjuster with the proper diameter and thickness. Lock the depth adjuster in position with
the depth adjuster lock. See "Groovable Pipe
Lengths" instructions and cautionary information.
WARNING
• Grooving rolls can crush or cut
fingers and hands.
• Loading and unloading pipe will
place your hands close to the rollers.
• Never groove pipe shorter than
what is recommended (See
"Groovable Pipe Lengths").
5 Insert a piece of pipe of the correct size
and schedule/thickness to be grooved over the
lower roll with the pipe end against the lower roll
backstop flange. See "Pipe Preparation".
4 If so equipped, retract stabilizer, if necessary, to insert pipe. To do this, loosen the stabilizer locking handle and retract stabilizer roller
with the hand wheel to clear pipe when inserted
onto lower roll.

Pipe Stabilizer Adjustment
(applies only to tools equipped with the optional stabilizer)
8 Remove the guard setting pad from its storage hook. Hold the guard setting pad firmly
down against the pipe and push it under the
adjustable guards flush against the red plate.
The Series VE272FS pipe stabilizer is designed
to pervent sway of 219,1 - 323,9 mm pipe. This
applies to short as well as long pipes. Once the
stabilizer is adjusted for a selected pipe size
and wall thickness, it does not require further
adjustment on that size and thickness. Pipe of
the same size and thickness may be moved in
and out of the tool without retracting the stabilizer.
WARNING
• Do not connect power until instructed otherwise.
• Accidental start up of tool may result in serious personal injury.
9 Loosen the wing nuts and adjust each
guard to conform to and lightly pinch the pad
against the pipe. Tighten wing nuts to secure
guards in position.
18
1 Make sure the proper roll set is on the tool
for the pipe size and material to be grooved.
Rolls are marked with the pipe size, part number and color coded for the pipe material to be
grooved. See "Tool Rating and Roll Selection"
charts. If proper rolls are not on tool, refer to
"Roll Changing".
2 Loosen locking handle. With the hand
wheel, retract the stabilizer roller to clear pipe
when inserted onto lower roll.
VE272FS
3 Insert a piece of pipe of the correct size
and schedule/thickness to be grooved over the
lower roll with the pipe end against the lower roll
backstop flange.
5 Make sure guards are properly adjusted.
Refer to "Roll Guard Adjustment".
6 Advance stabilizer roller inward with the
handwheel until the roller lightly contacts the
pipe, then tighten locking handle.
CAUTION
4 Close hand pump valve and pump upper
roll down into firm contact with the pipe.
Do not adjust stabilizers to push pipe to the left and off
center from the rolls. Doing so will cause increased pipe
end flare and shorten roller life.
• Assembly of couplings on pipe exceeding Maximum
Allowable Flare (see "Roll Groove Specifications"
charts) may prevent closure of couplings pad-to-pad,
allowing possible pipe separation, and result in property damage.
• Also, joint leakage may result due to excessive gasket
distortion/damage.
7 Complete the "Pre-Operation Adjustments"
and groove the pipe (see "Grooving Operation".) Observe the stabilizer roller while grooving. It should remain in contact with the pipe
most of the time and the pipe should rotate
smoothly without swaying from side to side. If
not, advance stabilizer roller further inward. Retest and make further adjustments as necessary. Remember, do not adjust stabilizer too far
inward as it will skew the pipe to the left and
possibly result in excessive pipe end flaring.
19
VE272FS
For your convenience, a "C" dimension chart for
steel pipe is also on the tool.
NOTICE
To perform the following adjustments, use several short
scrap sections of pipe (but not shorter than what is recommended in the "Groovable Pipe Lengths" table) of the
proper material, diameter and thickness to be grooved.
To achieve proper diameter:
1 Determine the size and thickness of pipe to
be grooved. See "Pipe Dimensions" to determine proper schedule.
INCORRECT
2 Locate the proper size and schedule on the
pipe size indicator. It is rotatable for easy viewing.
3 Back off the depth adjuster lock. Align the
depth adjuster with the proper size and schedule as shown. Lock the depth adjuster in position with the depth adjuster lock.
CORRECT
Figure 3 - Positioning the stabilizer.
Groove Diameter Stop Adjustment
The groove diameter stop must be adjusted for
each pipe size or change in wall thickness.
Groove diameter, identified as the "C" dimension for each pipe size, is listed under "Standard Roll Groove Specifications".
20
NOTICE
The markings provide an approximate groove diameter
adjustment and are not "exact" groove diameter settings. Variations in actual pipe O.D.’s and wall thicknesses make it impossible to calibrate the diameter stop
exactly.
4 Using a piece of scrap pipe or short piece

WARNING
CAUTION
• Grooving rolls can crush or cut
fingers and hands.
• Always disconnect power before
servicing or making any tool
adjustments unless instructed
otherwise.
• Be sure guard is properly
adjusted before grooving pipe.
• Keep hands away from grooving
rolls and stabilizer wheel.
• Never reach inside pipe end or
across the tool or pipe during
operation.
• Never groove pipe shorter than
what is recommended (See
"Groovable Pipe Lengths").
• Never wear loose clothing, loose
gloves, or jewelry while operating
tool.
5 Prepare a trial groove. To do so, follow the
"Grooving Operation" procedures.
• The "C" dimension (groove diameter) must always
conform to specifications under "Roll Groove Specifications" to ensure proper joint performance.
• Failure to follow instructions and warnings may result
in serious personal injury, property damage or
improper installation.
7 If groove diameter ("C" dimension) is not
within tolerance, the diameter stop must be adjusted to obtain the proper dimension. To adjust
for a smaller groove diameter, turn the depth
adjuster counterclockwise. To adjust for a
bigger groove diameter, turn adjuster clockwise. A quarter turn either way will change the
groove diameter adjustment by 0,79 mm (3,175
mm per full turn).
8 Prepare another trial groove and check the
groove diameter again. Repeat the two previous steps until the groove diameter is within
specification.
6 After a trial groove is prepared and pipe removed from the tool, carefully check the groove
diameter ("C" dimension), as charted under
"Roll Groove Specifications". The "C" dimension
is best checked with a pipe tape. It also may be
checked with a vernier caliper or narrow-land
micrometer at two locations, 90° apart, around

Standard roll groove specifications notes:
COLUMN 1: Outside diameter – The outside diameter of roll grooved pipe shall not vary more than the tolerance listed. For IPS pipe the maximum allowable
tolerance from square cut ends is 0,762 mm for 26,9 - 101,6 mm; 1,143 mm for 114,3 - 168,3 mm; and 1,524 mm for sizes 203,2 mm and above measured from
true square line.

VE272FS
COLUMN 2: Gasket seat – The pipe surface shall be free from indentations, roll marks, and projections from the end of the pipe to the groove, to provide a
leak-tight seal for the gasket. All loose paint, scale, dirt, chips, grease and rust must be removed. It continues to be Victaulic’s first recommendation that pipe
be square cut. When using beveled pipe contact Victaulic for details. Square cut pipe must be used with FlushSeal® and EndSeal® gaskets. Gasket seat "A" is
measured from the end of the pipe.
IMPORTANT: Roll grooving of beveled end pipe may result in unacceptable pipe end flare. See column 7.
COLUMN 3: Groove width – Bottom of groove to be free of loose dirt, chips, rust and scale that may interfere with proper coupling assembly. Corners at bottom of groove must have a radius of the following dimensions. For IPS steel pipe, 0,06R on 26,9 - 48,3 mm, 0,08R on 60,3 - 168,3 mm, 0,05R on 219,1 mm and
up.
COLUMN 4: Groove outside diameter – The groove must be of uniform depth for the entire pipe circumference. Groove must be maintained within the "C"
diameter tolerance listed.
COLUMN 5: Groove depth – For reference only. Groove must conform to the groove diameter "C" listed.
COLUMN 6: Minimum allowable wall thickness – This is the minimum wall thickness which may be roll grooved – except PVC.
COLUMN 7: Maximum allowable pipe end flare diameter – Measured at the most extreme pipe end diameter square cut or beveled.
