Is higher RPM better?

What is good on higher RPM drain cleaner? A Drum type looks good but K50 has higher RPM. Which is more effective to clean a pipe?
Asked by: Patric
Thanks for contacting RIDGID. I would suggest calling our technical services department to discuss this with one of our agents. The drum and sectional machines are chosen by preference and what the user is used to using in the past. People usually prefer either sectional machines or drum machines, depending on what they are used to using in the past and what they were initially trained to use. Our technical services department's phone number is 800-519-3456 so you can call and possibly discuss what would work better for your application specifically. Thank you for your patronage and for choosing RIDGID.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best in its class of all brands parts seem to wear out too soon and local plumbing supply houses do not support parts- Ridgid needs some kind of consignment parts arrangement with distributors so they can have parts on hand when something wears out- down time is a revenue destroyer and waiting days for parts is a hardship

Rated 5 out of 5 by from go to machine I use this machine as my primary sewer cleaner. I also have a 1500 and a 1750 jetter but day in and out you can't beat the portability and versatility of this machine. I've been in the industry as a union plumber for twenty years with fifteen more to go and I bet this machine will outlast me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little Work Horse As a septic contractor this is the smallest of the snakes we use. It's our go-to for any inside job. Over the last 20 years this little machine has paid for itself a hundred times over. Portable, strong and reliable, it will probably last another 20 years. For indoor jobs it can't be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This machine works I have been using the K-50 for more years than I like to admit. It really is a great tool. It is light weight, very easy to use and best of all it works extremely well on all kinds of pipe obstructions. This machine is a must have for any plumbing business.
