Rated 2 out of 5 by from Broke within first 5 minutes Auto feed handle broke within 5 minutes of use. Now I have to drive 30 minutes to get it fixed, in which I was told takes a couple weeks. Would not recommend this product from ridgid because of non return or even exchange policy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use. Much better than the unit that fits a drill Worked very well. Like you can see the cable going out and know when to stop and coming in to stop. Wish it was 5 feet longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bearing cracked the bearing for the forward advance cracked, the outer race of the bearing was split. I admit i was not there when this happened so i do not know why, son with good intentions tried to help. I found that the bearing is a r3rs so i have them coming to repair the damage, overall a very good machine. Slow and easy is the way to go.

Why does the cable bind in the drum every time I retract it in? This is an on going issue.

The only way I've thought to resolve this is to not attach the cable end to the hold down on inside of the drum.
