Customer Reviews

K-3800 Drain-Cleaning Machine with C-46 Cable is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used mainly to clean 4" lines from house to tank and tank to box works great for this with enough cable to clean longer lines. Bought this K 3800 because it easily fits in the truck tool box so it is with you on every job. It can handle most plugs involved in septic system 4" lines. Works great even with cable out past 50'.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and Portable I really like this machine's portability. The frame has a smaller, geared-down motor that makes it considerably lighter than the K400 drum machine yet is just as capable. I use this machine in bathrooms, kitchens and main sewer lines in basements. The K3800 is extremely well made, using the highest quality parts and construction...and this easily justifies its price. It's easy to carry, set up and use and is made to last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The auto feed option and it's a must Another great machine for 1 1/2" to 4" drains.This machine can tackle anything.It's compact and has good power.You can also cut through roots but you have to be careful..Either way the rigid cables are extremely strong.This is a great machine for residential and commercial use.For very tough roots I would use the small cutting head.and you can unblock the drain with no issues.The larger machine looks nice but it's heavy so I decided to buy this model since I work alone.I have used this machine for 3 years now with no issues.The motor is strong enough to kink the cable so be careful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The K-3800 Drum Machine is powerful and durable. I love this machine it's powerful, durable, versatile, and easy to transport. I use it to clean sink lines, floor drains, tub/shower, lavatory, and roof vents. It requires minimal set-up and it's rugged. I unclog all my drains with this machine.
