Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product. Plenty of bang for the buck here. Sturdy, easy to use, very good instructions. I'm extremely pleased with this product. As usual, Ridgid performs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding 1/4in Drain Snake Great tool for its intended usage, a 1/4in drill is usually easy to kink, however this design almost eliminates the possibility witch makes it extremely user friendly, beats a drill snake hands down.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken bearing within minutes Purchased this product from Home Depot on 1-14-18 to clear a clog in a shower. Within minutes of using (10 max) the lower bearing on the return portion of the auto-feed system had split and separated which disabled the return function. Now I have feet of cable out with no way of returning to the drum. In addition the lower bearing on the advance side of the auto-feed system split, but did not separate. Very disappointed in the component quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks great, but cheap quality This unit look very nice out of the box, but the auto-feed mechanics are very jerky, neurotic, and poorly designed. The clutch operation is poorly designed as well as being made of mostly plastic, don't expect this unit to last a long time. Also, the cable kinked about 5 times during it's only use, rendering the unit useless until I found another $50 cable to replace it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Purchase Bought this last weekend to clear a kitchen sink drain that clogged well beyond the trap. Pulled the trap and snaked from there and it worked perfectly. Directions were simple to follow and the auger worked perfectly. I couldn't be happier with the purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good machine but flawed feed grip This is a great machine for drain cleaning but there is one major flaw and that is the feed grip design. The line is fed the compressing screwed in rollers and the rollers chip or break in design. The fix is put these rollers in stores as parts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better explanation on use in the event cable gets stuck. Does it a lot. While this unit is nice and portable, there needs to be a better way to control the cable from getting tangled up. I have used two times and both times I had to take it apart to repair the cable. A lock on the cable is needed to prevent the cable from getting tangled up.
