I use a K39 wh/out auto feed for my small jobs. I made the mistake of buying a K40 and the only thing I can say is that the box it came in lasted longer than the machine. You cant give them away, I tried to give mine back to Ridgid they didnt want it

Reason: wrong machine
The Cable Center-St.Louis,Mo.,1-800-257-7209. The last time I dropped in,they had several stands for drill-driven drain cleaners.Maybe this will help you.Tony usually helps me.But any of the fellows can help. Hope this helps.
the small machine i just use for tubs and showers... it can fester all it wants inside the drum, if it comes out nasty so what I rinse the tub afterward. anyway it usually goes back in clean, just damp. its never been cleaned, I 've never broken a cable. I usually retire them every year or so... the 1/4" are cheap.
This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.
on my k-39, i always remove my cable when done. it literally takes 30 seconds to remove, shake out like a whip and coil up with a "cable cuff"
this way thecable is always dry and i can select which cable combination i go back in with.
every couple of monts, i'll loosen the 4 drum screws and wash and wipe clean my inner drums.
So you never put the cable right back in after cleaning it? Interesting
I took it out once and it took a minute or two to get it started back in the drum when putting it back in. I probably don't have the magic touch or the drain cleaning Gods don't have as much respect for me as they do you
I have finally found something that I want next as a small machine. And this time it isn't a Ridgid. The K-380 with handtruck and auto-feed I have now. Unfortunately it is discontinued. But this tool has handtruck, auto-feed, and looks really tough...I think this will be my next kitchen/floor drain machine once my K-380 craps out. http://www.trojantoolmfg.com/colt.html
Forum member Jerrymac told me about these, they look pretty nice.
