RIDGID Introduces New K-45 and K-45AF Drain Cleaning Machines Available in Manual and AUTOFEED Versions
ELYRIA, OHIO – July 2010 – RIDGID introduces the new K-45 manual and K-45AF AUTOFEED drain cleaning machines with optimized power up to 600 RPM.

The K-45 drain cleaners are designed for 3/4- to 2 1/2-inch drain lines. Cable is offered in three sizes of 1/4, 5/16, 3/8 inches, each in varying of lengths of up to 50 feet.

The K-45AF drain cleaner features advanced two-way AUTOFEED letting the operator clean drains better and faster, quickly working back and forth through drain blockages to completely clear lines. The ability for users to advance and retrieve the cable without stopping to reverse the motor reduces job times by 15 percent.

The K-45 and K-45AF machines have variable speed operation from 0 to 600 RPM to give the operator complete control in all situations. The inner drum prevents leakage to reduce on-site cleaning and clean-up times.

The drain machines offer a quick-acting, slide chuck that locks the cable. The inner drum design eliminates cable flip-over within the drum and allows for quick cable change out, and a compression-wound inner core cable combines strength and flexibility to avoid kinking. The units have soft touch grips on their ergonomically designed handles.

“The K-45 family of drain cleaners are the professional's choice for cleaning small secondary drain lines,” said Renee Brown, product manager, drain cleaning, RIDGID. “The smooth, soft start AUTOFEED feature on the K-45AF machine allows the user to keep their hands off the cable, avoiding mess, and giving the user total control to completely work through blockages and retrieve obstructions.”

The K-45 and K-45AF drain cleaning machines are ideal for applications such as sinks, bath tubs and showers.

The K-45 machine weighs 12.6 pounds and the K-45AF machine weighs 13.8 pounds making both easy to carry and store. The K-45 drain cleaners come with the RIDGID lifetime warranty.

RIDGID Tailpiece Extension Cutter Saves Time by Making Clean, Fast and Straight Cuts with One Tool
ELYRIA, OHIO – May 2010 – The RIDGID Tailpiece Extension Cutter (Model P-TEC 2550), saves users time and material costs by making a clean, fast, and straight cut with one tool on polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), and thin-walled PVC plastic tube used in sink drain extensions and tailpieces.

“The RIDGID Tailpiece Extension Cutter provides a fast, straight cut with a beveled edge for thin-walled plastic sink extensions that cannot be obtained with any other tool on the market,” said Kennia Papadakis, director of marketing, hand tools. “What was once a two-tool process can now be executed with a single tool. The Model P-TEC 2550 cutter is four times faster than current solutions and completes the cut in just six rotations or less.”

The cutter is intended for thin-walled tailpieces, wall extension tubes, and disposer kits made of PE, PP, or PVC materials. The Model P-TEC 2550 cutter provides a contained, auto-fed cutter for the standard sizes of 1 1/2- and 1 1/4-inch outer diameters. The automatic deburring feature eliminates the need for a second tool and produces only a fine strand of plastic, as opposed to the fuzz around the cut produced by hacksaws or other tools on the market. The automatic beveling feature allows for the effortless assembly of slip joints and kits for immediate joining to other sink drain pieces. Easy-view windows ensure straight cuts on a measured and marked pipe.

The Model P-TEC 2550 Tailpiece Extension Cutter was designed to fill a need voiced by RIDGID users. The new tool from RIDGID saves time and material costs by eliminating many of the hassles experienced during sink drain installation. The cutter is an addition to the RIDGID Under-the-Sink specialty tools family known and trusted by service plumbers, plumbing contractors and DIYers.

RIDGID Introduces New Auto-Clean Drain Cleaning Machine
RIDGID introduces the new Auto-Clean drain cleaning machine for cleaning drain blockages in homes and businesses. The Auto-Clean (Model No. K-30) drain cleaning machine works in pipes from ¾ to 1 ½ inches in diameter. It is designed to clean sink, utility sink, tub and shower drains.

The Auto-Clean drain cleaning machine features dual-direction AUTOFEED technology, which conveniently advances and retrieves the drain-cleaning cable with the push of a lever. The aluminum paddles on the AUTOFEED allow the user to feed cable down the drain at 18-feet per minute, enabling most blockages to be reached in under one minute. The strong, durable MAXCORE 50 cable plows through tough blockages using the ¼-inch by 30-foot inner core cable.

Users do not have to touch the cable as it features a unique guide hose that gives the user added reach as the AUTOFEED automatically powers the cable down drains and through blockages. The guide hose minimizes clean up of hands, work areas and fixtures by eliminating splatter.
“The Auto-Clean drain cleaning machine is a great asset to the RIDGID sink machines line,” said Renee Brown, product manager, RIDGID. “The compact design and clean, easy-to-use features offer a solution for common drain blockages.”

The unit features a handle for easy transport and storage and rubber feet that provide increased stability. A foot bulb activation allows users to turn the unit on and off with the tap of a foot. The Auto-Clean drain cleaning machine is compact in size, weighing only 11 pounds, adding to its convenience and ease of use.

RIDGID Introduces SeeSnake microReel L100 and L100C Inspection System, the Newest Addition to Its SeeSnake Inspection Product Line
ELYRIA, OHIO – January 2010 – The newest addition to the RIDGID SeeSnake inspection product line, the SeeSnake microReel L100 and L100C inspection system, is a complete compact, portable drain inspection system for users needing to push cable distances of up to 100 feet in lines from 1-1/2 to 4 inches in diameter.

Designed for use in lateral lines that exit the building and connect to septic or sewer lines, as well as in roof stacks, the microReel inspection system features a 100-foot cable and a larger, 25-mm camera head with greater lighting. The durable push cable is designed to be stiff enough to reach longer distances, yet flexible enough to allow access through bends in the lines. An optional counter provides the ability to count the number of feet and inches the cable is extended.

The microReel inspection system can be used with all SeeSnake monitor and recording options, as well as the microEXPLORER inspection camera for digital recording to capture still and video images on an SD card or in the internal memory to enable editing, reporting, sharing and storing.

At 10.3 pounds, the portable microReel inspection system can easily be transported to and from jobsites without experiencing fatigue. For additional flexibility on jobsites, the microReel internal drum cartridge can be removed from the housing assembly and can be exchanged with the microDrain internal drum cartridge as an option when a shorter, more flexible cable is needed to access sink P-traps and toilet traps.

“The microReel inspection system builds on the same great benefits of the compact, portable, digital recording microDrain inspection system that was introduced to the market earlier this year,” said Sarah Golish, director, inspection systems and networks. “It is small and light enough to be used daily as a first line of defense diagnostic tool, making it a necessary addition to every plumber's truck.”

The microReel inspection system is backed by the RIDGID lifetime warranty.

The RIDGID Model 118 Close Quarters AUTOFEED Cutter requires the operator to tighten the football-shaped knob only once and the spring-loaded cutter wheel will automatically cut. The cutter is adjustable from ¼-inches to 1 ?-inches outer diameter. The cutter is designed for use on hard and soft copper, aluminum, brass and plastic tubing. The cutter comes with a spare E-3469 cutter wheel in the knob and the ratchet handle is also compatible with the RIDGID Model 101 tubing cutter.
