Rated 3 out of 5 by from Did not work Have had pretty good success using hand cranked snakes but this time it didn't work cleaning out my 1 1/2 pipes so rather then calling the plumber decided to try this at almost $200. Well it did not clear my blockage. There was little bit of learning curve to operate properly, bent the cable at about the 3-4 foot mark just getting through the sink drain instead of going stright to the clean out. I don't believe I used it properly. The manual leaves a lot to be desired and no real user account videos to rely upon. In the end I had to call the plumber and it only took him 5 minutes with hi more powerful Ridgid machine. I'm still not fully convinced this does what it claims. Sorry I purchased it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good machine. Powerful and does a good job. Operational instructions good except when putting cable back in reel. By following instructions I used reverse handle but cable motor in forward and cable got caught and cable got bent. Have to get a new cable. Called to get fixed and found out cable not warranted. Was told to manually put cable in reel, not to use book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great idea, problems with cheap parts. Great customer service I had the unit for a few days before it broke. There are some small bearings that came from China that broke but Rigid after a few emails decided to mail me the parts. That was a day or two ago and they have not come yet but I am very optimistic that they will send the parts. Would recommend the tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be more satisfied! I bought this unit not having any previous experience with snakes; but it's so easy to use that, with a little reading, I was able to solve my issue (clogged kitchen drain). Great craftsmanship and quality controls! Looking forward to puschasing my next Ridgid brand product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For the price it's a pretty good product! I like the small compact size. For what you pay for the product it's handy around the house and some small commercial use. I've only had this product for under a month so we will see how durable this product is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This machine is amazing I bought this machine for a drain issue that we had in a residential setting. The machine performed very well. I was used to using the hand crank style of drain augers and this was a world apart from that. You have to pay attention when using it. There are multiple tasks that you are performing: Pressing the foot pedal, feeding the auger into the pipe etc. I did get the unit stuck and it bound up and twisted the cable. The cable is larger than the ones that you can get for hand models. Now the cable has to be replaced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Easy To Use It runs smoothly and I like the fact that you put it into the drain and back it out both with the machine in forward. All you have to do is depress the forward or backward auto feed levers on the guide hose. No switching the motor back and forth really speeds things up.The guide hoses are also nice to help keep the cable from twisting while also protecting what is near the cable from being damaged, as a bathtub or cabinet. I've used up to 7/8" cable sewer machines, and this is a great "sink machine" for up to 1 1/2" drains.
