Ridgid SeeSnake Drain Cleaner is here, FlexShaft

Since the Ridgid SeeSnake was invented there has been the desire when you find a blockage, you use that pricey piece of equipment to just nudge it loose, right? The camera head is already there, why not just jab it a few times, if that doesn’t work, maybe just really give it some good hard pokes… oh no the camera went dark… It’s true and it’s happened many, many times before. Typically most only make that mistake once, then have much more respect for their camera as strictly a diagnostic machine. That all changes today, with the addition of Ridgid’s new FlexShaft!

Ridgid K-5208 Drain Cleaning Section Machine

Ridgid K-5208

If you’ve cleaned drains at any point in your career in the last 100 years, changes are good you are familiar with Ridgid Drain Cleaning machines. There also have not been a lot of design changes in recent years, however we are now seeing a little competiton coming from Milwaukee Tools and other cordless tool brands looking to take a piece of the pie. Ridgid of course has a big leg up here with many years of product development so we are excited to see a totally new design, built on what’s worked for them, with the K-5208 Section Drain Cleaners, available as machine only 61688, with 4x 15’ cable 61692 or 7x 15’ cables 62378. So how does this stack up to other Ridgid Dain Cleaner options?

Ridgid Drain Cleaning Promotion for New Industrial Sump Pumps

Drain Cleaning Equipment

Recently Ridgid launched their full line of heavy duty Sewage & Sump Pumps which are designed to be some of the best on the market. These are very different units from the less expensive Ridgid Sump Pumps you’d purchase from the big box store so it is understandable if there is a bit of confusion understanding the differences. One of the very interesting new features available for these pumps is the AdvanTEXT alert system which will text up to 3 people when there is an outage. You can even text in for a status update, you know for those who just like to check in on their sump pump from time to time. (more…)

New Ridgid Water Jetting Machine KJ-3100 with 16HP

Recently announced Ridgid has come out with their largest drain cleaning water jetter yet. The KJ-3100 ($5669, Ohio Power Tool) can handle up to 10” lines at 5.5 gallons-per-minute. This is slightly larger than the existing KJ-3000 which is rated to handle up to 8” lines at 4.5 gallons-per-minute. Both units are powered by Honda gas engines but the new KJ-3100 gets a bump up to 16hp from 13hp that is on the KJ-3100. It seemed like an obvious next step as people were looking for more power, but the units remain relatively easy to maneuver through doorways and load on a truck which is key. Check out the recently uploaded instructional video below to learn more on operating these machines. (Actually video for KJ-2200 & KJ-3000 but much of the operation remains the same for the KJ-3100)


If you have any questions on Ridgid jetter or any other Ridgid drain cleaning equipment the professionals at Ohio Power Tool 800-242-4424 would be happy to answer any questions you might have. Read more in the official Ridgid press release below.
