      why do you use a general wire cabel with a bolt on drop head? Ridgig makes a cable that comes with a drop head attached...

        I can see why you have so much trouble getting through tight 90's. That setup looks like it needs a lot of space for bends. I use duracable with the threaded ends. When I use a drop head I use model numbers nf-6 or nf-8. Those work for me on anything but the most corroded 1 1/2" galvanized pipe.

          On most cases the kitchen clogs I encounter are further than 36'. Ridgid doesn't have 50' x 5/16" cable. If they do I haven't seen it. Then the spring lead helps me drop down in the hidden tee insted of up the vent and also navigates short radius vent 90's(Used improperly for drainage)

          Lastly I'm from Canada so I'm very limited to things I can order or it's damn expensive to import. I can mostly import ridgid and general wire, not much else.

          Just this 250$ jetter nozzle kit I bought a month ago ended up costing 150$ in UPS fees and the grand total was 520$CAD.

              It's pretty close to what I use presently. I like the fact that you can put the bit you want on mine, small bulb, drop head(all by itself), mini C cutter and others. I'm not sure the bulb from ridgid bends enough to go through abs vent 90's.

                  I own both a Ridgid k50 and a yellow top SDT "k50". I paid around $500 for a new SDT kit with cables, heads, carrier and drum attachment. The Ridgid I got for free.
                  As far as I can tell there isn't much of a difference beyond aesthetic. The parts are interchangeable.
                  I've had the SDT for several years and have done hundreds of drains with it. The clutch jaws are starting to wear so I'll need to replace them soon but it still works well enough.
                  The Ridgid I got for free had 2 broken legs and bearing squeal. I fixed it and keep that as a backup.
