RIDGID, part of Emerson’s professional tools portfolio, has introduced the K9-12 FlexShaft Drain Cleaning Machine, the latest addition to the RIDGID FlexShaft series. The product provides wall-to-wall pipe cleaning power at reliable speeds. The K9-12 can be used for residential service applications, eliminating the need to repeatedly unclog the same household drain lines.
Clearing up to 30 ft. of 1¼-to 2-in. pipe, the K9-12 breaks up grease, hair and other soft blockages in kitchen and bath sinks, as well as tubs and shower drains. Powered by an 1,800 to 2,500 rpm cordless drill, the machine’s chain knocker expands inside the pipe to clear the blockage and restore the pipe to full flow. A flexible, protective sheath encapsulates the cable, keeping it fully enclosed. The built-in clutch design also extends the cable life.
“Our K9-12 FlexShaft Drain Cleaning Machine is a great tool to start with if you have never experienced the cleaning speed and efficacy of a RIDGID FlexShaft Drain Cleaning machine,” said Shelby Gerl, product manager, RIDGID for Emerson. “It will save you time in removing common residential blockages and add value to your work by providing a fully flowing pipe again."
