I liked all other cables needs to be marked so the you know how many feet that you have used. It could also use a stand for holding it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DonaldDoALot The best answer to clogs, better than chemicals, this won't eat pipes!!!!
This is a GREAT product! The auto feed is ingenious! You can feel the cable dig through the clogs, it will even pull the cable at times when it hits a clog, then you just reverse the cable a little. I love the lifetime warranty to!! If you use a hand snake you will throw it away after you use this thing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LeachmansPlumbing Don't recommend this product.
Had it out for 2 uses and the handle slide that triggers the rod in/out movement must have bent or something and it is jamming the cable now.
The rep is never around and have to wait forever to hear back about any possible warranties.
I took it all apart, thought it was working well and turned it on to try it and it would not work. This sucks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Plumber1966 Good product
Will be better if is possible to have a simple counter, which show how many meters are in the pipes. Missing more range of extra parts. For example - it is very difficult to find 6 mm. cable.
The work environment is real clear. I like this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bernard great machine for the price, relativelky portable compared to the big clunkers of General and Spartan
When 49.95 sewer cleanout could not send someone on Labor Day weekend when I had 1/2-1" standing water in the basement, I searched on-line for a drain cleaning machine to snake out 4" main to street and back to the house. Ridgid K-400 fit my needs and K-45 the same for 1-1/2 and 2" sinK line to the main u-trap and back to house. Make sure to do spiral first, then spade or cutting head, as needed. DON'T BE CHEAP! READ THE MANUAL FIRST BEFORE USING THE MACHINE. Write the model and serial numbers on the manual, and REGISTER YOUR TOOL TO BE PROTECTED BY RIGID'S LIFETIME WARANTEE (UNUSUAL TO THE INDUSTRY). MUST wear leather work gloves in working the snake BUT I wear rubber gloves on hands as well to make waterproof and prevent sewer muck that goes through the work gloves from entering any small cuts on my hands. Slight problem w/ the rolling wheels as machine tended to drag on floor rather than roll on its wheels. Perhaps wheels should be larger diameter for bottom clearance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by grunt1 It's very easy to use, And it's a lot liter then other brand's .
Other brand's I used in the past were heavy and it took a lot out of my arm's to run it. But this was very easy to use and a lot lighter. And it still had the ball's to tear through a tough clog I had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Husler Like the front handle to go forward and back is really nice feature 4
Hi tried it on the bathroom sink it went through the P-trap when I was doing it, it was hard to take out of the P-trap because there was a hole in it and it wrapped around the trash bag in the trashcan , I was hoping it would go around the P-trap but it's so sharp point on it I just poked a hole through the the metal on the P-trap . So I put it through the hole in the sink I mean in the wall and it works really great only two couples minutes and it was done ! Tried it in the tub or the air vents that took the plate off and then it went through there just a couple 2 to 3 feet only took a couple seconds and then it was cleaned up. The hardest thing is to clean the hair off the tip when you're done with the project .
