Description

For 3/4" (20mm) to 2 1/2" (75mm) Drain Lines

The K-40 Sink Machine is ideal for cleaning small secondary drain lines from 3/4" (20mm) to 2 1/2" (75mm)

  • 1/4" (6mm) cables are best for 3/4" (20mm) to 1 1/2" (40mm) lines
  • 5/16" (8mm) cables are best for 3/4" (20mm) to 1 1/2" (40mm) lines
  • 3/8" (10mm) cables are best for 1 1/4" (40mm) to 2 1/2" (75mm) lines

The K-40 sits flat on the floor or countertop and also tips onto its back for easy access to sink drains and bathtubs full of water. The K-40 practically eliminates job site clean-up thanks to the patented Guide Hose two-way AUTOFEED. It completely contains the rotating cable and eliminates any waste water splashing or spraying.

The K40 machine is ideal for one hand operation in tight spaces, the guide hose prevents possible damage to sinks, tiles etc from the rotating cable.

K-40 Features:

  • Available with 230V, 175W (50Hz) reversible induction motor delivers enough torque to clear even the toughest blockages
  • Premium-quality, compression-wound inner core cable combines strength and flexibility to resist kinking
  • Two-piece "twist lock" drum housing will not dent or corrode and allows easy access to the inner drum and cable
  • Spins cable at 240 rpm
  • Ideal for one-handed operation thanks to the guide hose with autofeed and the air-actuated footswitch
  • Special speedbump (SB) Cable (Speedbump: thicker part on cable that doesn't pass the autofeed)
  • It is strongly advised to use IC cables with the K-40 and to work with a "Torque Arm" (Torque Arm: metal plate inside drum to give extra torque)
  • Impact resistant, corrosion proof, 2 piece cable drum virtually eliminates cable flip-over inside the drum and drum leakage
  • Can be used in either horizontal or vertical position
  • No need to change direction of motor to advance or retrieve the cable

K-40 Kit includes:

  • C-13 IC SB Cable 8mm x 10.7m
  • Torque Arm
  • Guide Hose with Autofeed
  • RIDGID Drain Cleaning Gloves and Operators Manual
