You can purchase the attachment for this unit to go forward and reverse, in fact I would encourage doing so. I love mine and purchasing the attachments to go forward and reverse makes it so easy to use.

Beautiful machine
I have a Milwaukee Air Snake that I have been using for a few years. Love it but it can’t unclog those corroded steel pipes I have. I decided to put the money for this machine. Very easy to use and comes with various bits. 75’ long snake that is a joy to use. Seriously. This thing is quiet and easy. I used it to unclog a drain pipe going to the washing machine. I tried the clean out but the clog was higher so I went right from the washing machine drain. I used a camera to look in and saw water still in so put the Ridgid to use. It went around sharp corners with little effort. Winding up was just as easy with reverse on. I’m sold on this. I’m not a plumber but have installed PEX through a couple of houses. I wish I would have got this many years ago.

Wonderful to use!!
I’ve only used it once so far. Easy to use, trees are notorious in our area. Cleaned the drain myself, saved paying roto rooter $$$ for the last time!! I’m glad I didn’t buy the auto feed, watched multiple videos and they suggested the manual one, you can feel the blockage with your hand! Also like the 1/2” cable, no kinks!!

Complete junk dont waste your time or money!!!
We just bought this sorry excuse for a tool about a month ago and within the first 15 min the front hose broke off and then the barrel cracked and that makes it off balance so it binded up. After that the belt started slipping so much it woukdnt even turn to feed the cable with no load. By the way the feed part didnt work either. It bent up and metal shavings have been coming off the parts. All around in the overall quality and satisfaction of buying this and using it i believe we got ripped off and would been better off paying some guy off craigslist to do the job we had. We only used this thing 3 times now and its practically unusable.

The cable brokes for the first time of use!
I bought this machine at my local Home Depot and next day I used it for the first time. I read the instructions and operated it without problem. However, when I was retrieving the cable back, it suddenly get stuck. After I managed to get the cable out I found it's somehow broken! The inner wire is fine but a small part of the cover coat fell off. I have took some pictures and you will see what I mean! I am really disappointed! There is a label on the package box saying the product may not be returned to the store is opened or used! I called the customer service and the guy said cable is wearable item and may not be covered for warranty! Oh really, I spent a couple hundred dollars and the junk cable just broke for the first time of use?! The email response from customer rep just give me link to find service center and repair request form! Why I can't return for a refund?! At least the company should send me a quality replacement and pick up the defective machine!

It gets 96% of our stoppages cleared, we save on fuel and space due to its compact size and weight. You will not go wrong with this, trust us,or we will buy it off you if you're not happy! How's that for our belief in the product.

A little heavy for some folks, but it compensates by having wheels and a retractable handle. Smooth in operation, very comfortable to use.
