Ease of use. Rated 4 by Randall Yes, I recommend this product. I have a difficult bathroom sink that I've only been lucky enough to snake one time out of 8 with a hand held drum snake, so I bought the Rigid K30. I tried two different days 10 to 15 minutes each time, but it wouldn't make the right turn beyond the wall, approximately 10 inches deep, either. Maybe a less rigid cable would work, or an attachment such as the larger snakes have. I'll keep it, as I believe the plumbing is 60 years old and faulty. It's a good product and will work on my other drains. Easier to use than a hand held model by freeing up one hand. I used a bladder/garden hose to finally clear it after two attempts.

Gets the clog out.... Rated 4 by Cougar6772 Yes, I recommend this product. Used the machine twice so far. It is a two person machine to maximize its effectiveness. The motor appears to be powerful enough, and the cable long enough at least for the typical home clog. Originally posted on ridgid.com Jun/2016
Does exactly what it is designed to do. Rated 5 by OldHomeFixer Yes, I recommend this product. This is the light-duty drain-opening machine I have needed for some time, far superior to the one operated by my electric drill. So far I have used it to open only one sink drain, and it has performed perfectly. It helps that I have had some practice in feeding a rotating cable into a drain, so I am unlikely to force it, twist it or break it. The foot-operated on/off switch allows for excellent two-handed control. The one flaw, as many have noted, is that the cable has no markings to show how much has been fed into the drain. (That is why I rate Ease of Use only as "good.") Therefore, before using the machine, I painted every 24 inches of the cable a different color, up to 18 feet. What a great help!

Excellent for Do-it-yourselfers Rated 5 by Kidd69hd Yes, I recommend this product. Ive been using the Ridgid auger that chucks into your drill for many years. Ive tried other inclusive units that friends bought but they were either too heavy to move around or the auger was too large to negotiate my plumbing. I needed to auger the drain again bur currently Im not in the best of health so I went out and bought this unit. Originally posted on ridgid.com Jun/2016
