About This Product

The RIDGID K-45-1 drain cleaner machine is excellent for small line cleaning and is suitable for 3/4 in. to 2-1/2 in. drain lines. This drain pipe cleaner has a large tough, corrosion-resistant cable drum that withstands harsh treatment and will not dent or leak. The two-piece "twist-lock" canister with interchangeable inner drum makes cable change-out simple and easy to match the right cable for the job. Includes 25 ft. of 5/16 in. cable ideal for pipes measuring from 3/4 in. to 1-1/2 in. The variable speed power unit rotates cable 0 to 600 RPM. The Inner Core drain snake cable has a vinyl-wrapped inner core to prevent rust and enhance cable life. It is compression wound for strength and resists kinking to negotiate tough bends and traps. The cable provides good flexibility and cleaning power to the cable end where the Bulb Head tears into the clog. K-45 sink machine features a slide-action chuck for quick locking/releasing of the drain cleaning cable. The design of this drain cleaning tool has a lightweight feel, which allows for easy transportation around worksite and loading into service trucks or vans. Excellent for small line cleaning.

          Owned for 10 years
          Ive had one of these for 10 years now literally the same unit, great tool i use this over any others that employers have supplied me. Auto feed helps have more control and feel for blockages or bends. I Replace the cable probably once a year. Much better then Milwaukee ones. I personally hose clamp the lower lever and just switch it from reverse to forward to auto retract and feed. Never had any problems! Ive broken one pipe with it due to poor fitting with back to back to back 90 degree knuckle bends

            piece of garbage
            I wasted my money on this piece of garbage. it is way over priced and every time I try to use it, it kinks up and gets all twisted. I have yet to unclog a drain line yet.

                Use one at work
                Use one weekly at work, and use it at home few tines a year Clear two clogged drains and it has more than paid for itself If you are a handyman, just watch YouTube videos for proper operation

                  For the price it is definitely not Worth it built like crap
                    good durable tool
                    Great tool. Front black handle slides back and forth too easily. When it slides back it pushes a set of pincers out and locks down the cable. It is difficult to hold the drill while keeping the black handle from sliding back. I finally removed the black pincers.
                      Super handy and powerful
                      I have been using mine 2-3 times a month and it never disappoints me. I make sure to clean dry and oil the cable after every use
