Answer: 
This machine has forward and reverse, it also has a foot pad control (I often end up using my knee!) However, you need to use your hands to push the cable in and pull it out.

Answer: 
Manually. You need to pull out or push the cable in by hand. However, less force would be used if you leave the motor running.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 58 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Product was broken when I opened the box On top of the box it states that you cannot return to the store if it is opened or used. As soon as I opened the box it was easy to see the plastic locking collar for the motor was broken. I would think that the person packing the box could have seen the broken collar. May 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pretty good This lil monster did a great job. Cost me only a few dollars more than if I had called a plumber. I know this is not the last time it will see action. Eay to use and like the variable speed of the drill. Like that it came with all the cutting tips. May 17, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cable snapped on first use Thought getting this more expensive model would be worth it. Cable snapped during first use on bathtub drain. Cable went through strong work gloves into hand. Non-returnable. Not impressed. May 7, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Light, Easy to be carried to roof top and operated. Save time, save money. This cable drum machine is light enough for me (my weight is 172 lbs) to carry onto the roof top of my one story house. I had a "heavy duty" clog, so I needed to clear it from the main rooftop vent. I used all tips, one by one, they worked very well. This machine is operated by a drill type that is placed at the back of the drum; so if you know how to use any electric drill(s), you can operate this machine easily. Everything is included, except a pair of gloves and a screw driver. Just do it slowly and place the machine near the vent pipe (I placed the machine about 2 feet from the pipe). I was able to completely clear the clog within 40 minutes or so. By the way, the machine that I have was made in China, not in the USA. April 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by little drain snake This is a great little machine for taking on roof to clear through the vent. It takes a little thought to get the drill motor going the correct way. Wish I had this 3 years ago when I fell off a roof trying to lug our bigger machine up to run a vent. April 26, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bad product this product kinked up within 5minutes of use, i was not able to unclog my drain. the snake popped out of the drum; i followed instructions, on minimal speed with drill and still kinked up. unable to use this product. unnecessary money spent. April 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by junk cable , kinks too easy if they would put a decent cable in it it woul be fine . kinked on first use and im a plumber . April 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Will do the trick worked great on cleaning out the pipes. It was easy to setup and run. It did what I what I expected and cleared out my pipes. It should pay for it self over the years and I think it will last. April 5, 2016
