March 1, 2021

With the rapid and massive changes over the last couple of years, RIDGID continues to build smarter tools to keep pace with the industry that is moving swiftly. A recent innovation to complete our line of professional drain cleaning and inspection tools, RIDGID released a new product, the K-5208 Sectional Machine, that enables job efficiency for plumbers with a reduced product weight.

The K-5208 is purpose-built to be the most powerful, most compact, easiest-to-service and cleanest sectional machine on the market. It has an improved portability, boasting 30% less of the weight of the K-1500 and operates at a higher speed with a ¾ horsepower motor. It also has a cable that yields 700 RPM that can cut through blockages from soft materials such as wipes, paper products and the like.


An ideal solution for drains 2” to 8” in diameter, it features a tool-free clutch system that allows you to quickly swap between 7/8” and 1 ¼” cable sizes. It also includes a new Trident Sectional Cable Decoupler for disconnecting cables efficiently and an infield clutch serviceability that allows you to make necessary repairs on-the-job. Furthermore, it has a carrying handle for easy transport from truck to the jobsite and is designed with high-strength square steel tubing and no-slip grip rubber feet for enhanced stability.

This sectional drain cleaning machine also took into consideration to enhance cleanliness on the job site as it comprises of a fluid management system with a reservoir to catch fluid for later draining, and an enclosed cable feeder with guide tube for easy loading and unloading into an enclosed cable carrier.  Both advocates an element of control on the cable to reduce its exposure and to minimize damage on it.
