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 157.

The machine was easy to set up and use and the motor produced a lot of torque. At one time I probably had 35 to 45 feet of cable in the drain pipes with a couple a 90 degree bends. No problems. I hired a plumber to clean a drain in this same house last winter and it cost me $150 for the service call. This machine may have paid for itself with the first use. This time the pipes were clogged in two locations. I had a little trouble feeding the cable due to a 90 degree bend in the wall. Just keep pushing while slowly engaging the motor. I would think a person would need some knowledge of residential plumbing and how drain pipes work before using it. The cable is actually a spring and there is a risk of getting clothes, gloves, hair, etc., caught in the spinning cable. Take your time and feed the cable slowly while slowly running the motor. READ the instructions. I am very happy with this purchase.

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 5 out of 5 by from Great buy for light home use! The machine worked just fine for my bathroom and even turned a corner in an 1 1/4" pipe tee with the spiral wire attachment. Instead of going from the roof vent, I opted to go through the sink drain and it worked fine that way. Saved me the trouble and slight danger of getting that unit on the roof, although the unit it isn't heavy at all. I use to use the hand operated snake and I can say the drum machine saved me a lot of extra effort. Also saved a lot of perspiration and a few words of frustration too! The air operated foot pedal thing didn't work for me, but I still love this unit and will investigate why the pedal doesn't work as it should. I think it is an air leak in the line somewhere since the pedal is pneumatic instead of hard wired, for safety's sake. If you ever called a plumber and spent over $280 just for the visit, then this unit will pay for itself the first time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Awsome Ok, an old friend of mine was with a name rooter company, and I've been on a few rides with him,. as well as had him clean several of my drains in the past. Watching him I knew it was not rocket science. So when a main line clogged a few days ago, I fretted and then looked this machine up, and read the reviews. Just bought it about an hour ago at the local Home Depot. Brought it home, red the instructions in 3 minutes. Attached the 2 blade end tool, filled the pipe to the holding water point, then started to feed the line, as directed. Hit a few spots, maybe turns, then had a little slowing of the motor. Then pulled it out about a foot, and repeated working on that spot several times. Bam! A rumbling, and the water was flowing as good as ever, as viewed down a clean- out further down the line. Total cleaning time about 4-5 minutes!! I am stoked. Now I have this for future problems, which I have on occasion in various drains, and can clean them on my terms, not a "plummer's". Very, very happy with this machine, and ease of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thanks goodness for Home depot! My girlfriend's toilet backs up (actually, didn't go down) and we had to open the main line outside her bathroom. The manual snake was useless, we wanted to do it ourselves so we visited Van Nuys's Home Depot and was shown this machine. The helpful gent told us that unless we have roots problem, this will work. Well, bought it home, used the regular tip and not much happened (used all the way 50 feet), then I changed to a bigger tip (easily done) and did it again. Next thing we knew, the main line opened up and we did a little more for an insurance. We had hoped it would work because there was no return on this item (I can't blame them for not wanting it back), but we are so happy with it, even if we could return it, we wouldn't want to!!! The unit was easy to use, manual was to the point and the foot switch was very useful. It would have been nice if the price was a little lower, but the company (that makes it) sure knows how much a good plumber charges when one is called in the middle of the night. They figure if it costs $100 to $150 for someone to come by, why not charge twice as much and the buyer gets to keep the machine?

Works perfect when snaking the 1-1/2" drain under the sink. The 50' reaches my main where I can use my larger machine if needed. Also it's light enough to carry up a ladder to the roof so you can snake through the vent pipe. Just take your time and let the interchangeable heads do their job. This is not heavy enough to clear mains from roots nor does it claim to be. I would avoid using it on pipes over 2" because the cable could twist into a knot if it catches on something hard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow Your going to get a little messy, but this just removed about 40 wet ones my toddler flushed. They were wedge about 45 feet into the driain and around at least two 90 degree sections. Highly reccomend would love to have seen this $199.99 but am still satasfied with not having paid the same to a plumber, and instead purchasing another tool.

Went to reverse it to untangle it a little and the FLIMSY toggle switch broke first use. Spent 45min untangling the cable in the drum which kinked it in 2 places(managed to semi-fix those). Bought on 7/5/18 used it once 7/7/18. Not the best 275 I've spent.
