Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little Work Horse As a septic contractor this is the smallest of the snakes we use. It's our go-to for any inside job. Over the last 20 years this little machine has paid for itself a hundred times over. Portable, strong and reliable, it will probably last another 20 years. For indoor jobs it can't be beat.
