    Also, there is something odd about that picture......I thought the handle actually removed to attach the drill.

      I have 2 addresses so far in my PM. I think my inbox may have been full when some of you tried sending. Please PM me with your addresses and we will get these out right away.

      Thanks, Josh

      Late to the Party again I made a home made version using a rubber tube and a small drill snake to go through the trap. Most of the time though, I have to remove the urinal and use my k-50 to clear it out. I will pm my address, in case someone fails to do so. I plan to use the new auger to clear commercial urinals and some toilets.

        Josh, go ahead and give Plumbingbyjay the unit you were going to send me if you have yet to ship it.

        I know what its like to be a day late and a dollar short.

          Sorry for the mix up Josh. You can let some one else have mine. If it gets rave reviews I'll buy one. Thanks again

            I have been getting a rash of clogged urinals most of them are clogged in the trapway.

              Tried to PM address multiple times. Attempting to PM Josh immediately goes to a broken link "Page Not Found" on my end using either Firefox or Chrome. However, attempting to PM someone else takes me to the proper PM page for that person.

                I sent you an email. Please respond with your address. No idea why PM isn't working for you. I got PMs from everyone else after I fixed the inbox size.

                Ok.. I finally got your auger shipped out. Sorry it took a few extra days. Everybody should have them now. Bob, yours will be there early next week.

            • #26
              Alrighty. The old Copper email is no longer used. I have attempted to send you a PM and have had it either:

              1) Go to a broken link page showing ridgidforum.com and your name with josh1 (<-I think) in the address bar.

              2) Say that I have too many PM's in the inbox. States that 412 are there and a maximum of 400 is allowed. So I deleted around 15 of them. Tried again, same thing. Logged out, back in, exact same message. Still says I have 412 in there. And there is nothing at the bottom that let's you advance to the next page of say.....20, so you can check and delete them rapidly FYI.

              There also should just be a link in anyone's post with a PM button in my opinion.

              A valid email is [removed so you don't get spam]@gmail.com. I have to be honest though, It's been a good while since I've ran into a urinal auger situation for whatever reason. You might get better input locally.

              ​Thanks.

                The combo auger can be used for much more than urinals. just let us know what you use it on.

            • #27
              I received my auger today in good condition. Well packaged, as I've come to expect from Ridgid. Initial thoughts -

              - it's too clean (LOL)
              - i'm itchin' to use it, just not on a urinal
              - it looks to be well designed, much the same as my other auger for toities
              - i like the little scraper auger head on the end
              - the included manual handle is good for when you dont want to break the porcelain with an impactor
              ~~

              ... it was plumbed by Ray Charles and his helper Stevie Wonder

                Nothing showed up here today. Tomorrow may be my Lucky day.
                I did get some new Ridgid and Eel cutters today.

                Where's my UPS man?

              I received my auger today. I love the visual appearance of it, way cool It also looks to be built to last.

              It puts the general auger to shame. The cable seems more durable, the body more rigid.

              Now the wait to use it on a urinal to see if it works.....

                Mine came in the mail yesterday. From first glance it looks well built.

                I get an occasional nasty bar with who know's what in it.

                Thanks Josh, look forward to using it.

                  (drill not included)


                  Requirements
                  - First... you must be a plumber/drain cleaner/facilities maintenance technician
                  - Second... you must have posted on this forum prior to 5/12/2014

                  How you request one of the K-1s
                  - Post how you currently tackle blocked urinals and how well that method works for you.
                  - Tell us how you plan to use the K-1 (urinals, trap arms, showers, etc.)
                  - Promise to come back and post pics of how you used the tool and how you think it performed.
                  - PM me your shipping address and phone number.

                  I will ship a K-1 out to the first 10 who meet the requirements above.

                  Thanks, Josh
                  So you had 11 but one went to rick right off the bat. Lol

                    Not true.. He did test a prototype about a year ago though. What can I say... he is a great tester. Tries products out in all kinds of applications. Gives multiple rounds of honest feedback.

                    Well.........mine came today and we put it right too use augering the centers urinals. It worked like a champ on the first 5 but on the 6th one the cutter jammed on something, the cable 1st kinked and then snapped off at the handle. We had a 18v Makita drill attached. It appears the cable won't take the stress of the drill. Anyway, I do and you for sending one out.
                Working...
