  1. Renting a cable machine is foolish. Ask any plumber if he ever got wrapped up when the cable is under tension?  Plumbers & professional drain cleaners have gotten crushed fingers or lost them al together.  Running a cable machine is a SKILL – the only thing learned from renting a cable machine is not to do it again.  If everthing in life was this easy – rent a set of scalpels instead – it pays better & is less work

  2. Take it from me, if you see one of these machines with open-grid drums do not rent it. You will need to rent cleaning equipment to clean up the mess these leave behind. I have no idea what Rigid is thinking making this design of sewer machine. As you retrieve the cable the dirty water comes off the cable and drips on the floor, spits on the wall and in your face.

  3. Tried to rent, but snakes were either too wide for the job (kitchen sinks are only 1.5", need 3/8" or thinner), or too short (25').  Just as well, because $85 is a rip off when you can get it done for $100.  Too bad — I think $65 for a 75' snake for a kitchen sink would be a win-win.  Considered buying it, but I'll go for one-hundred and done.

  4. I used this to clear the footing drains at my house. I rented the 100' one from Home Depot in Howell, NJ – and was disappointed because they didn't have the proper bits for a 4" pipe. I called ahead of time to make sure the machine was available and told them my intentions, then when I showed up they had the machine but not the right bits. It took the guy like 20 minutes to find any bits at all. He told me there was no such thing as bits for a 4" pipe, I told him he was wrong and that I had seen bits for up to 6" pipes. He laughed and said not here, this is the best you are going to get. screw you too buddy. I rented it anyway because I had a 6' hole I dug all across my house foundation and needed to continue moving along as winter is quickly approaching,  we got snow today. I got my drain cleared but will have to rent one again because I only cleared a 2" or so path through my 4" pipe.

  5. Stop into your Home Depot TRC and the associates there will show you how to use any tool in their fleet. We are always happy to show people around our shop up here in MN and demo our tools.
