RIDGID® is giving plumbers even more cleaning power and diagnostic capabilities in large-scale commercial or residential jobs with the addition of the K9-306 to its line of FlexShaft® Drain Cleaning Machines. Designed to clean 3 to 6” diameter drain lines up to 125 feet, the K9-306 clears blockages with astonishing speed, while the ability to inspect with a camera simultaneously maximizes efficiency and lets you complete two jobs at once.
Purpose-built for the professional, the K9-306 quickly clears grease buildup, roots, and heavy scale in larger pipes. It features a professional 1.5 HP internal universal motor for maximum power and longevity; a fully enclosed drum to minimize setup and cleanup; and a retractable handle with multiple wheels and grab points to make loading and unloading easy.
“The positive response to our first two RIDGID® FlexShaft® Machines last year was overwhelming, with contractors wanting a similar product to clear wider and longer lines. The RIDGID® K9-306 FlexShaft® Machine is the answer to that request,” said Tim Dunphy, marketing director, Global Underground Technologies, RIDGID®. “With the K9-306’s ability to clean wider pipes and reach up to 125 feet, it lets contractors clean larger lines all the way out to the main.”
The K9-306 has the highest capacity of the RIDGID® FlexShaft® Machines; each utilizes various chain knockers that are spun at high speeds and expand to quickly clear the entire circumference of a pipe for a more thorough and longer lasting wall-to-wall clean. The flexible, fully enclosed nylon-sheathed cable can be easily wiped clean as it is pulled from the line. It also eliminates splatter, cutting down on jobsite cross-contamination.
“When designing the K9-306, we also continued to innovate and expand our chain knocker lineup, adding a new option featuring a carbide tipped penetrating head. These new chain knockers will be available for all FlexShaft models and will help the pro more efficiently engage and clear tough full line blockages.”
FlexShaft® machines are backed by the RIDGID® Full Lifetime Warranty.
