The Model K-400 offers several unique, user-friendly features to make the toughest drain cleaning jobs easier and hassle-free. Designed with a sleek profile, the Model K-400 is a great fit for drain cleaners, service plumbers, facility and institutional maintenance departments and property management companies.

Features

  • 3⁄8" (10 mm) cable best for 11⁄2" (40 mm) to 3" (75 mm) lines.
  • 1⁄2" (12 mm) cable best for 3" (50 mm) to 4" (110 mm) lines.
  • Integrated Transport Cart - allows for easy movement to and from the job site. Heavy-duty, large wheels easily navigate over bumps and up stairs.
  • Integrated Telescoping Handle - provides high-handle height during transport.
  • Cable Control System - causes the drum to stop spinning when the blade becomes lodged in a blockage, limits potential for cable to flip-over in the drum and helps to indicate to operator when blockages are encountered.
  • "Solid Core” Cable - uses tough 3⁄8" (10 mm) or 1⁄2" (12 mm) Integral Wound (IW) solid core cable that is rugged and kink resistant.
  • AUTOFEED - 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 3 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product Great product use it almost daily. A little heavy, great cable auto feed is not the greatest when used with a 3/8 cable but works a lot better with the 1/2 cable. I have 2 of these machines one is an older version a K-380 that is around 10 years old! And 1 K-400 that has been in service for about 1 year March 6, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by No warranty I took to Winton's or willton in okla city they laughed at me when I told them it has a lifetime warranty kid in back that works on them said ridgid doesn't have lifetime warranty !!! I said its says so on box he said that I was wrong I'm not talking about Limited warranty he said no warranty at all none after 1st yr if it was under 1 yr they might consider it with proof !?! They laughed this is 2nd time they said this !!! I understand limited warranty abuse worked on myself wore out but my machine was used maybe 5 times like new bolt broke in auto feeder called ridgid there sending out new bolts to fix but okla city service center Winton is a joke !!!! January 8, 2014

Answer: 
To Remove Cable From Drum
1. Pull out excess cable from drum allowing access to
cable bracket.
2. Loosen screws on back of drum that fasten cable
clamps and back plate against back wall of drum.
3. Pull end of old cable from drum and discard.

To Install Replacement Cable
1. To make cable installation easier, completely uncoil
new cable before proceeding. Use caution when removing
the cable from the package. The cable is
under tension and could strike the user. Adding a 30
degree bend about 4 inches from the drum end of
cable will facilitate it entering the drum.
2. Insert about 24 inches of cable through the guide
tube into the drum.
{Cable should coil into the drum in a counterclockwise
direction}
3. Reach inside the drum and maneuver end of cable so
that it is between the cable clamp and back plate. The
end of the cable should extend at least 3" past the
clamp.
4. Retighten the screws to clamp the cable against the
back plate and back wall of the drum.
5. Feed cable into drum.

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?

Answer: 
Thanks for the question, chrisl.
If you want to use a 1/2" cable, I'm afraid 75' is the max reach. However, if you can use a 3/8" cable, we do have a 100' option (catalog number 87587).
