Hello, thanks for contacting RIDGID! This machine has a cable that you can purchase that has the drop head auger built on to the end of the cable, or you can purchase tools for the ends of the cables that are offered with couplings. https://www.ridgid.com/us/en/k40-sink-machine

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I don't have the autofeed option This is a great little machine.My only pet peeve is sometimes the cable gets a bit stuck and you have to pull on it to get it out of the machine but this has happened many times with my old super v .I have also had to remove the front cover and take the cable out and then put the cable back into the machine.Still much lighter and easier to use than the Super V.I had one of those for years and let me tell you this machine is much easier on the hands.Overall it has a strong motor and is perfect for 1 1/2" drains January 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very happy with this product! Easy to use, strong & durable, very portable and inexpensive. We highly recommend this unit to plumbers in the field. February 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product is portable, easy to operate My Grandfather sold wholesale plumbing supplies since the 50's, and he highly recommended his RIGID products. Recently, I had to snake a secondary sink located in a laundry room. Any plumber knows these types of cement sinks can have all kinds of problems. I pulled out his old K-40 and thought I would have a job ahead of me, but it came through without a hitch! If and when the RIGID tools he swore by ever give out, I'll gladly be back to buy from the newest generation of the same line that has served this plumber's family so well for so long! I'd buy any RIGID product with 'my eyes closed' ... that's the kind of confidence I have in their products! November 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Light and easy to operate. this is an excellent drain cleaning machine. It is very easy to operate and weight only 30lbs. It took me 15-20 minutes to solve my drain problem. I highly recommend for this product. August 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A superb sink drain cleaning tool This machine does everything right. Starting with it's very compact size, this machine is great to use in tight spaces. You can use it in a vertical or horizontal position with no problems. It's pneumatic foot switch frees up your hands and it's power cord is generously long. Although this machine is lightweight, it has a heft and weight that gives testimony to it's high quality construction. The K-40 sets up fast, quickly clears the blockage and its frame allows for cord and tubing storage. December 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by love because you never touch the cable hands always stay clean This drain snake is pretty light for the size and the features it has. The power is incredible for the size. The auto feed feature works great which results in a clean hands and work area less cleaning up after the job been completed. I also like the fact that the cord it comes with is pretty long no need for a extention cord must of the time. Another cool thing is for most drains you dont need to take the ptrap off you could snake a lavortory right threw the drain without removing the trap. November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Glad we made the upgrade! Considering that we are dealing with antiquated drain lines in our 85 year old building, we used to get plenty of slow or stopped drain calls. After taking this through almost every hotel room and easily clearing the hard to access drum traps for the tubs and pedestal sink drains our call volume has dropped off and we can focus more time on other projects. We are very pleased to have added this machine to our already extensive Ridgid tool assortment. Great product! November 25, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very clean to use Very nice unit for sink drains and bathtubs. Wish it had more power. and a place to wrap cords up on. Glad we have it. April 3, 2015
