  • AUTOFEED® Control - offered as an accessory, this patented, automatic cable feed powers cable in and out of the drain. Reverse the direction of the AUTOFEED and the cable feeds back into the drum.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from solid product Although this is a quality product the issue I have is with the ability to purchase attachments for this machine. You can not buy attachments directly from ridgid... they must be purchased from a third party...I contacted a third party to make a purchase and they required you to sign up on their site...I did so over a month ago and have yet to hear back from this company...ridgid needs to sell from their own site and not farm it out to third rate third party companies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ridged K400-T2 easy to use A friend lended me his to unclog the house drain, it works real good, very easy to use, no issues. I returned it to him after I was done and I drove to Home Depot to get one, exactly the same one as his. I have not use mine yet.... but I’m ready to go, just in case. Very good product from Ridgid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and compact My toilet and tub would not drain. Before getting this unit I had to remove toilet to clear main stack below.I have a clean out in the main stack in the attic. I can lift this unit up my stairs no problem. So, now I don't have to remove toilet anymore!! I had rotor rooter clean out my main drain because of tree roots. I ran a Limink Endoscope camera to see the condition of the main drain to the street. There still was roots. They say this unit is not really suitable for removing roots. But, I used the rigid 63025 T-209 2" Spiral Cutter and it removed the remaining roots. It took more passes because main drain is 4" and cutter was 2". I have the 75ft x 1/2" cable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product is sub-par I am a plumber and have always preferred ridgid sewer machines over other brands. But this specific model seems to be lacking in power and rate of spin.

replace 3/8" cable with 5/8" cable?

I have a Ridgid K-400 drum machine. Will a 5/8" cable work with the K-400 machine? Also, is there a replacement cutter head available for the Ridgid 3/8" cable?
Asked by: reddog
No, according with the manual you can only go with 1/2

K400 DRUM AUGER

HI, HOW DO I REPLACE THE CABLE ON MY DRUM AUGER?
Asked by: VG2122
Easy, just don't tangle it. Go to a large area and pull the cable out, then you will run into a clip that retains the cable at the very end. Use a flat head to loosen the screws in the back of the drum and the cable comes out.
