Ridgid is not known for having the best cable, They are weak and like to bend easy. On some of the smaller cable I have known them to kink up so bad on the first time down that the cable had to be thrown away and sadly some threw the machine in the corner never to be used again. I was at one job another cleaning company was trying to get open ( we was both called to clean the drain he was there and stuck before I got there ) he was using the 1 1/4" with a K 1500 and had built up a pile of about seven cables that were bent up before he got stuck he said that guy he is working for is buying a lot of cables to day the cleaners around here charge the customer for any bent or broken cable and they all use Ridgid cable but me, I guess they couldn't stay in business if they didn't. Ridgid just never got the temper right in there cable, I think there machines are great I use all Ridgid machines, there cutters are good about 1/3 of the cutters I use are Ridgid, but the cables I wont use any more I use all general Cables. But I have picked up some good deals on like brand new Ridgid machines just replace the cable and it is ready to work.
