Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great machine, bad cable Bought machine on 6/25. Opened box at first job on 6/26. Found small piece of black plastic in bottom of box. Later figured out it was part if the coupling between the drum and frame. I snaked drain one time - paper clog in a 3 inch line. Switched heads and head connector had broken welds at cable (in my opinion heat stress cracks next to welds). Left job incomplete. Took snake in for service. Got it back nearly 3 weeks later - 7/15. Coupling replaced and connector welded back on to cable. 7/18 - Second job for this machine. Another paper clog. Attached head and gave a light test to the weld. Connector cracked next to new welds. I had to remove connector and bend the cable to effectively clear the clog. Now I don't know if I should take it back a second time, just buy a new cable, or fix it myself taking time to preheat and slowly cool the weld to remove heat stress from the cable. I've had a k380, k400, and a k3800 on my service vans for years. I have only broken one other cable. It was on an old k380 and was probably just worn out. I'm reluctant to give a bad review because I know that these are good, dependable machines and I know what they are capable of and not capable of. That's why I bought one as I am starting my own business. Somehow I just seem to have a bad cable and its costing me with downtime and repairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to operate and it gets the job done! I have used this product twice so far, once to get through a clogged drain between our home and the city’s sewage main drain system, which it was cleared. Then a second time to scrape most of the debris attached to the sewage pipes. Both times it was easy to complete the process without any problems or set backs. The motor works quietly and efficiently, so it was the drum in both forward and rearward motions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad It's heavy, hard to carry. The bow doesn't change. The belt is coming out of the drum. Is difficult to clean. 50x90 elbows do not turn the bow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall Good, but Welded Cable End broke after Several Attempt... My family owned a quite large size of Laundromat carrying 200 + of wash & dryer machines. While working on several of hard-cloaked commercial drains, the edge of cable end broke twice. (Another one borrowed from family friend's business. Fortunately, Ridgid sell the Repair Kit, so I bought them. By the way, the machine worked well over all, but Ridgid need to work more on the cable end. That is why I only rated Durability as "Average."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saddled Sewer Line: compact, lightweight & easy to use. :) We have a dip in our sewer line about 30 feet from the house that slowly plugs up so being fed up with the mess and hassel of getting a professional in I grabbed this unit from a local store. Watched a couple of YouTube videos and tried it out. Very easy to use and a whole lot better than stopping and adding extra cable (professional has an ancient machine). Weight is very manageable and the unit is nice and compact so it does not take up much room. Two uses will pay for this machine and it is available to me 24/7, which is nice because the sewer usually plugged up on the weekends and I hate waiting for help (no toilet, shower or laundry use available).

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?

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.
