Rated 4 out of 5 by Works well, but unit cames up short on true length. I really like the unit, but was disappointed when it didn't reach my clog. Unit only has 24ft 3" of usable snake. my clog was at approx 24ft 8". Ridgid needs to disclose this. I was forced to rent a longer machine.. I will have to look into a different tool. I get this clog about once a year or so, in about the same location.outside, just before my septic tank December 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent product Power Spin with AUTOFEED®Power Spin™ really does what it promises, it is one of the most useful and versatile equipment that already bought, just wanted to know how to perform the cleanup of the equipment after use, a more detailed manual and Portuguese would also be useful, but overall I am very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tool for light clogs! Summary, definitely worth the money. I had a quote from a Mr Plumber type outfit for $650 just to camera a line in a townhouse. I bought this and some new wax seals for the toilet and cleared the line myself in less than 2 hours. This tool is probably not for mainline issues, but is great for small lines, which is most of the common clogs you have in the bathroom. I did use it on a 3" toilet line for my rental townhouse, and it's nice being able to use a faster device; you are trying to get in and out of there. To be fair, I used a pretty heavy hand turn cable first to clear a blockage. Then sending this unit down after found the "feminine product" culprit. This is awesome since the main cable released the blockage but didn't get the source. I have also used this at home to clean a tub line in my older home that clogs easily. I suspect it doesn't have any pitch so being able to clean that out every once in a while is great. On to the product. I love being able to switch from drill to manual, you may be out on a call and have your battery die. The advantage to using your drill on low (gear 1) is that you get consistent speed and torque. There's no tendency to overdue it like when you are doing it manually. I find this makes the "getting round the bends" easier and less likely to kink the cable. The unit seems sturdy but does have some plastic parts, though they seem pretty durable looking. I have a couple of cheap hand spinners that are now for backup only. December 12, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by cable lock down has been removed this hand held auger used to be a good tool until someone decided to remove the cable lockdown thumb screw. this has an auto feed on it which is a pain because of the plastic trigger assembly. makes for hard engage and dis-engagement of self-feed feature. you cant lock the cable down and when you hit a hard turn or bad spot in the drain line it will stop feeding and twist inside the cable canister and wad up and then you have to dis assemble it to get the cable unknotted. first time I used this new auger it happened to me twice in 5 min. and I threw it in the back of the truck and that is where it has been until I get my receipt and return it to home depot. they need a cable lock down on this model. the self feed wont lock it tight enough to keep it from twisting inside the drum. go back to work on this engineers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding for tubs and sinks I maintain an apartment building which has a lot of female tenants. I can always count on a sluggish tub or bathroom sink due to hair accumulation. The Power Spin with autofeed combined with a battery powered drill makes for a speedy fix in these situations. This combination is one of the most used tools in my drain cleaning arsenal. I keep a few spares in case I don't get it back (this happens). A superb tool that I would never be without. November 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great tool for plumber but needs work Not one to send a review , great product and innovation. The only downfall is cable does not last. I love this product and keep buying. Problem is, it is expensive to purchase 3 or 4 a year! Will keep purchasing because it is a great product, but needs improvement on cable life!, Thanks guys and keep up great work on products. Hope this helps. November 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great basic Tool This tool was at first kind of hard to figure out, but after a few minutes I was able to figure it out. It performed like it was supposed too and I have used it several times since. November 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent product at a good cost I am a landlord with 50 doors to look after. I do not need to call the professional plumber any more since I bought the power spinner with auto feed. I do the job manually and am impressed with this machine. I would like to see a smaller head on it as it does not always fit in the kitchen sink drains. November 24, 2014

Just bought this and was going through the manual and it says to clean the auger after use. Ridgid also sells a rust inhibiter, but how do you get the thing apart. There is no information anywhere in the book.

Answer: 
The best way to clean the cable in a power spin is to manually pull the cable out of the unit. I generally do this in an area where I have some room to lay the cable out in front of me.
The cable is attached to the inside of the drum so once you get to the end you will feel some resistance at which point you can stop puling.
Cleaning is really wiping the moisture off of the cable, especially if it is not going to be used for a while.

While we no longer sell the rust inhibitor, rag moistened with some oil will suffice to help prevent rust and corrosion.

Thank you

Answer: 
After I clear the blockage which I usually do while running water down the drain, I pull out the cable while still running water. This does a basic cleaning of the cable as I remove it.
Then I'll use some pliers to remove any hair/accumulation build-up from the auger bulb.
In my maintenance room or basement, I'll then pull out the entire cable and let it dry on the ground.
Next day, I'll put on some nitrile gloves, saturate a rag/paper towel with oil and slide the cable through it as I reload the drum.

I have always gotten very good results by treating the cable in this manner...negligible cable rust.

Answer: 
there are 4 screws in the back of the drum . remove the screws and the drum comes apart or you can pull the cable totally out of the front of the tool for cleaning the cable and rust proofing which needs to be done after each use anyway. wd 40 or a light weight motor oil can be used to rust proof the cable because a lot of times a liquid drain cleaner has been used and it is very corrosive and will eat up the cable causing it to break off in the pipe and cause more labor time and cost.
