Questions & Answers

is thisn machine a self feed or manuel

Asked by: Boss
Absolutely manual. You will kink the cable if you try to auto feed. The drum only spins to free clogs.

5/16 in. x 50 ft. Cable Drum Machine is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 173.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent solution for a variety of light duty problems. IF you know what you are doing. This is ... Excellent solution for a variety of light duty problems. IF you know what you are doing. This is NOT a main line root chewer, too small for that. You also have to know how it works. 1. It is a MANUAL machine. You feed and extract manually. The drum only spins to release a blockage. 2. Keep the screw tight and the cable taught and it works fine. 3. Cable is not attached. When you get to the end pay attention and leave a little in the drum. I had a block in a line between kitchen sink and bathroom. Took less than 30 min to run entire 50 ft down the line and pull back out. Fed it slow, spun the drum to clear the clogs and get it taught.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BrassCraft 5/16 in. x 50 ft. Cable Drum Machine What a great little tool. I started with this drain snake out of the box and broke the tip pretty quickly attacking a major main line root clog under a growing tree. I put right back in and started again and after tangled a few times (forward and reverse as it snagged through the roots) and finally broke the cable. This 5/16 cable is useless unless your working on in-house clogs where it might do fine. I got a brasscraft 1/2" 50 ft cable at HomeDepot and replaced the 5/16 cable. Then this little machine with the 1/2" cable turned into a monster and went straight through the major clog in 10 minutes. What a life saver...............................

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the price for homeowner jobs I have had a recurrent problem with small tree roots that invade my ain sewer line between the house and the street. Unfortunately there is no clean out that is handy to get to this problem and it has cost me about $200 a crack to get a rooter to come out and snake this out through the 4" stack vent on my roof. This litte item worked perfectly on the job. I was on the roof for about 15 minutes and the drain was clear. I now know I can save some money in the future by using this to solve the plumbing issues that come with a 50 year old home. Glad I got it and I would recommend it to anyone with light duty needs. I would not try to cut through big roots, but the fine ones in my sewer line were no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Product My house is over 40 years old and prone to a stopped-up drain every 6 months or so. After the second time calling a plumber in and having him snake the drain (after using a manual 25 foot snake my self with no success), I decided to invest in a semi-pro tool. 20 minutes after purchasing this product, I had my latest clog fixed and everything draining well! This machine is easy to calibrate and operate. Powerful, sturdy and steady, it worked just as well as the pro augers that the plumbers brought. After my next clog it will have paid for itself (since plumber visits were about one-hundred bucks a pop)! I highly recommend this product to anyone facing repeated drains that are hard to reach or tough to bust.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The cutting heads fall off, the cable is too weak, and the drill is very poor quality. To start off, the line is so fragile, it kinks while pulling back. There is no solid core, just a spring. The motor will only work when 3/4 to full speed. It's useless to even give the variable feature. Cutting heads are two pieces. The dowel screw stays secure, but the screw that attaches the cutting head to the bore will jiggle till loose. Then it can't be used in reverse. The screw backs out and the head will be stuck in the drain. It says it can handle 3", it can not. The heads and line are not big or thick enough. Kinking and line breakage can happen. For 300, it's not worth it. It's not worth it at half the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BrassCraft BC260 Light Duty I'm a home repair specialist and on occasion I moonlight as a home emergency responder. Where my clients used to pay outrageous rates for a plumbing company to come out to clean out their clogs and trouble shoot their plumbing, they call me. As another review stated, this snake is light duty and will perform well for most clogs locally found in your system. If you are going to venture into clearing a main ... well, this tool is not designed to deal with it or heavy root problem. Stay away or work slow and patiently if, there's no other choice. Don't destroy your investment or frustrate yourself by using this unit irresponsibly. As for the good stuff, if you're a homeowner, you're going to love this toy. It has a good design, its light in weight, it comes with all the tips you will ever need and will last you, if you take care of it. As always, if you run into something you're not sure about, call in support.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It does the job. I have a repeated clog that occurs about 15 feet from the clean out. I paid 169.00 twice in the past 6 months to clear it. I picked this little gem up this morning. Put the tip on it, plugged it in and in 2 minutes I freed the clog. Do the math. I spent 272.00 with my VA discount, freed the clog and saved, do the math, I save 169.00. So how much did I pay for it now. I am keeping this little thing and happy I got it. I recommend this for small job around the house. I will not cut roots, but clogs, it does the job. By the way, I am a General Contractor and will be able to use this on my jobs. Just remember, don't abuse it, or you will be replacing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much easier than using a drill! I've been using a 1/2" 50 ft. snake with my cordless drill - it works - but is a messy pain, took 2 people, and wouldn't be good to use inside the house. Was thinking of this item since I own a couple of other houses in addition to my own. Figured only a matter of time till it pays for itself! Used it on clog at my residence and it worked great - it was much easier, and cleaner - made it worth the cost the first time!
