RIDGID has introduced the K-4310 FXP Drum Machine with a new cable counter that provides real-time, in-pipe cable distance for locating and diagnostics. Designed for residential and commercial plumbing and drain cleaning projects, its brushless DC motor spins at 230 rpm.
Clearing 3- to 10-in. lines, the K-4310 FXP is powered by RIDGID’s new FXP Technology Platform that allows users to switch between battery and power adapters (in development) for versatility. The Cable Counter feature helps professionals know where the cable is in the line as they are clearing blockages. The cable distance tracking feature allows professionals to always know where their equipment is located within the line. The unit’s enclosed quick-change drum is removeable, allowing for setup and transport, while the rotating inner drum dispenses cable and reduces the chance of cable flip over. Integrated AUTOFEED Technology advances and retrieves cable up to 28 ft. per minute with zero tools required for setup.
“Our K-4310 FXP Drum Machine gets to the heart of a profitable drain cleaning business – productivity and a ‘one more job’ mentality. It features the latest innovations in power consumption, real-time metrics, and smart technology, while also built to withstand the toughest conditions,” said Alex Meyer, product manager, RIDGID for Emerson. “From eliminating the need to guess where in the drain line your cable is, to not having to search for an outlet, both enhance efficiency and are just two of the great new features integrated into this drum machine.”
The K-4310 FXP has a telescoping handle and cart designed with multiple touch points and mobility options for controlled transportation and storage. Customizable reports, tool history and diagnostics, shareable job insights and tool history data are also available via the RIDGID Link App.
