Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for small work. Broke on the 1st use. The bearings on the feed handle are very delicate, I broke 2 of them on the 1st use. Ridgid seems to have banker hours for there customer service. Store will not take it back used. Hopefully Ridgid will stand behind its product and send free replacement parts. The unit itself is a good useful tool for small drains. Very portable and has the power for tubs and sinks. Use gentle pressure on the feed lever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed. It is fairly lightweight & I like the length of the cleaning cable. I wish there were add'l attachments. Overall I like it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice product. Do not use it every day or weekly, so it will take some practice to learn the technic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hose kinked unclogging a drian. The hose has already kinked and is bent like that after 2 uses this is not a very durable product. It unclogged the drain but now cannot use it anymore.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too soon to tell Product worked fine for the job that I had to do so far. As for durability. Having used it once so far I cannot honestly say. But! If it is as good as all of my other ridged tools I am sure it will be good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked as advertised I'm a handyman always looking to add to my arsenal. The product looked well constructed and durable. Was easy to use out of the box and the self feed made the decision to buy easy. Only thing I'd like to see different is an option to put on a more aggressive tool. Great price especially if you only need to clear 2" pipe or less.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as Advertised I believe this is a well-made product. Seems sturdy and built-to-last. I took some time to read the manual and was able to easily assemble the pieces and use this product. It worked great for my bathtub drain. I'm very happy with this purchase. As long as you follow the manual for operation and care, this product should last a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product only 1 issue Overall the machine is great except for the fact that the first initial use the rod was coiling up wrong so I had to take it apart and get it untangled. Other than that it worked great!

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.
