  • Integrated Transport Cart - easy movement to and from the job site. Heavy-duty, large wheels easily navigate over bumps and up stairs.
  • Retractable Handle - high-handle height during transport.

  • AUTOFEED® Control - offered as an accessory, this patented, automatic cable feed powers cable in and out of the drain. Reverse the direction of the AUTOFEED and the cable feeds back into the drum.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. Easy to use. I was so frustrated with no call/no show from plumbers that I bought my own machine. Worked great! cleaned out my lines and life is good. This machine will pay for itself in the next few months. Great purchase. Glad I did it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The RIdgid name speaks for itself I am a licensed plumbing contractor.I mainly do new construction but decided to go into service work also after getting calls from customers to unclog drains/repair water leaks.This Drum machine is the best on the market.Very quiet,strong cable and easy to use.The best thing about it is,(IT PAID FOR ITSELF QUICK).Do yourself a favor and stay away from the harbor freight Drum machines and go with a Ridgid.A product that will give you years of use.My plumbing company depends on Ridgid everyday to get the job done right the first time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After researching many different products and comparing all the features, the K-400 was the best and the best price for my needs. After renting a drain cleaner numerous times, I decided to buy one. Researched the internet and comparing a number of units and the features they had, I decided to purchase the K-400. It had all I needed, including the size, the length of the cable and the price. I used it right away and it did the job. Now when I need it, I have it. Thank you!

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.
