Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and Powerful The 5208 packs a serious punch and delivers performance everytime with its compact design. Very easy to use and easy to change cable sizes, by simply turning the dial on the clutch. Choice of 7/8 or 1.25” cable. Can clear drains up to 200ft of pipe between 2-8”. My favorite part of the 5208 is the cable carrier with enclosed drum on a spinning base. Makes it 10x easier to feed cable thru the flexible guide hose and intro he drain. Using the trident which is another cool tool that comes with the machine and in its own compartment on the machine, separating cable or heads from cable is a breeze. The 5208 definetly has the power to clear roots and heavy blockages, while being compact and not taking a ton of space on the job site which is key for me which small New England basements. I highly recommend to anyone in the market for a drain machine that can get any job done.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality Came in box with loose screws, pulley was about to fall off, I was thinking about buying cheap knock off drain machine, I thought buying a new ridgid machine would give more quality, well I was wrong, had to take it apart & work on it right out of the box, it was super loud when running & not smooth at all, very disappointing for the money I spent & the quality I received, ridgid needs to deliver a product that has been checked for quality,
