Answer: 
It appears to be HD polypro material. I did not see that as a drawback. Won't rust.

Answer: 
Thanks for contacting RIDGID. The drum and handle are both hardened plastic, but the tube that the cable comes out of is metal. I am not exactly sure what housing you are referring to so if you need more information please call us at 888-743-4333 so we can discuss.

Answer: 
NO, not when the plastic connector between the cable and the crank breaks and it will after you use it a couple of times.

Answer: 
Yes, you pretty much just push it back in. It's not permanently attached but simply holds on by using the friction of the wound up cable in the drum. When you push it in, it will start to wind into the drum. I had no problem getting it back in.

Answer: 
Yes; can be used in 1/2" pipe, typical of sinks. However, at a minimum you have to remove the 'hair catcher' (screen or "X" bars); will work best (if the block is lower down) by detaching the trap (the 'funny' bend under the sink) and snaking into main line. Would not be best for removing hair 'globs' in upper pipe-- use the stick type probe product for that or a chemical.

Answer: 
Try something smaller. The coil on the end of this may not pass the drain grate, or be too large for the workings of your sink stopper.

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 83 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works great with drill; cable shows rust rot All of these drain snake products suffer from kinking due to twist imparted when using. This accepts ordinary power drill (used my 9.6 v); trick is to snake into drain (below trap if you can) and butt pistol grip w/in 1/2" of opening. That limits the cable 'flap' within the pipe, cutting down kinking. Once that was worked out, worked like a charmer. The drill's tip-coil will pull the snake right along. I push as much cable as I can by hand first, trying to find the block, pull a foot or so back if I do, then give it a spin to 'bite' into the 'wall.' Faster revs gets more 'pull' with trigger engaged, but don't over rev. Gitz er done. Only drawback is mine showed some rust spotting after first use even though I put away rinsed & sun dry. Maybe some wet still in drum? At any rate on second use rinsed, sun dried; then (my son's idea) used old sock as mitt, put dab white lith grease in palm, and wiped down (re-dabbing as needed) as I recoiled snake into drum. That should inhibit rust and add some slick moves next time out. 4 stars because although snake appears stainless, rust a maintenance issue. July 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great, but pay attention After destroying two other augers like this, this one was definitely best. It is priced highest, too, but I am OK with that after mission accomplished. But, it is a 1/4" auger, and yes it will kink if you let it twist. It will not beat a $300 pro snake setup. If you are not cautious about feeding the coil, it will twist just as well as any 1/4" auger. The main difference is the feed mechanism, that makes it worth the price. Other augers, you have to pause, pull out more coil, then lock somehow and keep going. This one uses a clever constant feed setup that works very well. Got the hair clog out, got back in good graces with the wife, two thumbs up. August 21, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works well, just get something to fix it when it breaks Ok, the actual powerspin is great...I used a manual RIGID auger that is EXACTLY like this, but it just has no adapter for a drill, so I was having to hand feed it, reel it, hand feed it, reel it, etc and it took about 15 minutes to drive the auger all 25 feet. It worked, but it was sweaty, awkward and painful. This POWERSPIN works extremely well. You don't need a $169 auger unless you do this for a living. You just clamp the "clutch" to engage it and it drives the auger down into the pipe. Reverse your drill, clamp the handle (clutch) and it reels it back in quickly and easily. NOTE/CAUTION: When you reel it into the pipe the first time, there is no warning that you are at the end of the line. The way the auger is secured inside the drum is very weak and it snapped off. I had to get a mini-screw clamp (like you use to clamp a hose on a pipe), drill two slots and clamp the auger end down to the drum inside...a pain, but it works like a champ now. RIGID---for your quality, please secure the auger end with something other than a screw and washer connected to plastic or make a white mark on the auger showing when you have reached the end of the line. This is the hose clamp you should get when you buy this in the store if you don't have spares at home: Everbilt Model # 6260294 Internet # 202309384 SKU # 100561 5/8 in. Stainless-Steel Clamp. Just drill a slot where the mounting screw used to be, then another inside the drum and clamp the auger end through it. July 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by I do not recommned this product. Product is easy to use, but has poor performance, has no durability, broke on first use. August 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by this product broke after the first time using it. I purchased this and the first time I used it broke, August 7, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Good For Only Hair Blockage The manual handle kept coming off...I wasn't accidentally pushing the tabs. So I connected a hand drill. I did break through some slightly encrusted blockage. The farther down the drain, though, the cable started to twist *inside the drum*. Then outside cable started to bend/kink. I wasn't at high rpm nor going through IMHO really tough material. Seems that cable was kinking too fast for going through IMHO minor blockage and I wasn't forcing the issue.. This auger might be good to hair blockage and grease only. April 30, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very good product Very good product, works as expected. Make sure you have bought the model which allows you to attach a drill machine instead of a manual lever. Its a pain to keep turning the lever for longer paths with entire weight on one hand. June 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Plastic connector The product works great until the plastic piece that connects the cable to the crank breaks. It happened to me the third time I used it. Why put a plastic connector between two pieces of metal? Planned obsolescence! It works great until it doesn't. June 25, 2016
