Questions & Answers

is thisn machine a self feed or manuel

Asked by: Boss
Absolutely manual. You will kink the cable if you try to auto feed. The drum only spins to free clogs.

5/16 in. x 50 ft. Cable Drum Machine is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 109.

IF you know what you are doing. This is NOT a main line root chewer, too small for that. You also have to know how it works. 1. It is a MANUAL machine. You feed and extract manually. The drum only spins to release a blockage. 2. Keep the screw tight and the cable taught and it works fine. 3. Cable is not attached. When you get to the end pay attention and leave a little in the drum. I had a block in a line between kitchen sink and bathroom. Took less than 30 min to run entire 50 ft down the line and pull back out. Fed it slow, spun the drum to clear the clogs and get it taught.

Once extended, I could not get the cable back into the drum. Once you open the box it cannot be returned. It was a complete waste of money.

We unpacked the box, put together the attachments as per the instructions, and then found out that the drill that drives the spool wouldn't work at all. Ended up having to call a plumber anyway. Completely disappointed!!!

I had a clog in my main line. After trying two different hand held manual drain augers and Main Line Cleaner fluid I was going to rent a power drain auger. No one in my area rented these out, so I decided to buy this. When I opened the box it was already fully assembled. All I had to do was put the attachment on and plug it in. It took about 20 minutes of back and forth cutting, but it did in fact clear the clog in my main line. I would strongly recommend this product to anyone that has drain problems. If I had to pick a negative about this product, I would say my only complaint would be the packing. It was just sitting in the box with no protective packing material. Not a big deal though. It was not damaged and worked great.

It comes with three different cutting tips and we were able to locate and free the plumbing blockage in our gray water line in our home. Living in a rural area this will be invaluable for us, as our older home seems to get a plumbing blockage every couple of years (and each plumbing call has cost us $150!). Very simple to use and certainly worked for us!

It took me about an hour to open up a drain pipe under the basement floor so it was running without backing up. The power drill is important, but not having a powerfeeder makes it very time consuming. I had to push and pull the cable in and out 1-2 feet at a time while running the drill, risking coiling the cable. My cable was sturdy, but I did not encounter any tough materials to cut out of the drain. It is expensive and non-returnable once opened. I did NOT like that part of it and that does NOT meet my expectations for a tool that is used once every 2-3 years. The price of $275 is a "gouge", just high enough to equal an expensive plumber, turning an expense into "an investment". This machine could easily be produced as sturdy at a cost to consumers of $150 to $175. The low-tech tool worked but now I have to sell it to someone else because the job is done! I will buy a better one in 2-3 years for the same price.
