Rated 4 out of 5 by Lucas Nice, light weight, snake. I like the cable housing it minimized the mess that I've experienced with other snake's.
I would recommend this snake for the reasons in my review summary. I will say when you are finished using the snake take it outside and extend the cable out and wash it off with clean bleach water, take off anything that has been wrapped around the cable, dry the cable off and spray the cable down with wd-40. The wheels on auto feed handle also need to be lubricated after each use. Great snake for the price!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jbaldwin66062 Nice service tool
Nice and compact, light weight and clean. Great for taking into service calls. Only drawback being how hard you have to squeeze the trigger for sending and retracting the cable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DoggyDaddy powerful but not long enough
This clean out tool is decently powered for getting into most drains, even those with some clogging but remains woefully short in length. I don't think the average home owner would understand the tricks of using such a tool. That all being said I have successfully cleared four drains and have only had the thing a week.

Ridgid used to stand for quality. Don't know what happened but this product does not live up to the name. I have many Ridgid power tools as a diy person. I should have expected something when a product can not be returned.
The product was weak and very cumbersome to use. Rewind is a complete joke. This will be my last Ridgid product I will ever buy again.
Take heed... Any product that can not be returned for a valid reason should shout stay away!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JFS1 Like the physical size of the unit,not big and clumsy.
Used the unit on a plugged drain ,a combination of bathroom sink,washtub,kitchen sink and washer. It worked great especially the auto feeder. Very clean and easy to use and the price was very reasonable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Muldebk Cable advance does not work !!
Used the k30 machine to unclog a bathroom sink and the cable advance mechanism was useless. My hand was sore from pressing on the advance lever to go forward. The unit was not even a year old. The only benefit the k 30 has is it is compact and transportable.
I would not recommend this product to anyone.
