Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good machine for general cleaning I have used Ridgid Drum machine for years never had major problems, this one looks to be the same. My only suggestion would be to increase the quality on the pig tail attachments so they are less prone to breaking. The rest are fine and hold up. This machine with auto feed makes the job easier and cut down the amount of time needed to complete. Very happy with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good little peice of equipment The machine was more rugged than I thought it would be, and worked better than expected the first and only time I've used it thus far. Glad I bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ready to use out of the box, it worked great. It was late evening when my drains plugged up. I was thinking of calling a plumber but didn't want to pay a fortune. I purchased the K-400 and it worked great. My only regret is that I didn't purchase the auto feed feature. It was rather difficult to retrieve the cable when 75' is deployed. After taking care of my drain I came to the conclusion that tree roots caused the backup so I was thrilled that the machine cut through the clog. The only issue that I see is the motor is no longer available on the web site for replacement parts. I am a retired maintenance professional and planning for the future I was listing spare parts so I was surprised that the motor was no longer available for a new machine. I don't expect to ever replace the motor, just planing for worst case issues in the future. Thanks for making a great machine that is durable and easy to use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from K-400 Drum Machine This drum machine is not a very strong product. It did not open the drain and had to call in professionals with a industrial sized machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All the bells and whistles at a great price. I work for a major hotel chain where quickness and efficiency are key when dealing with the problems that a good drum auger is needed for. Ridgid K-400 is a solid piece of machinery with the wire length and power to really get into (and out of) problem drains.

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
You can only use a 3/8 or 1/2 cable for the k-400 . You can purchased cutter heads online

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.
