Compact Sectional Drain Cleaner

Aug. 8, 2019
RIDGID's drain cleaner now offers a cart for easy transport to and from the worksite.

The RIDGID K-5208 Sectional Machine just got better with the addition of a new transport cart for easier jobsite maneuvering and storage.


The K-5208 Sectional Machine Transport Cart is designed to reduce plumber fatigue when moving the K-5208 and cable carrier from work truck to jobsite and features an integrated stair climber to minimize body strain while climbing and descending stairs. The cart can be stored both vertically and horizontally with the ability for the K-5208 to be operated from the cart when in the horizontal position. It also has a wheel lock for enhanced stability when in use or stored.


The K-5208 is purpose-built to cut through the toughest roots with a ¾ HP motor and cable that can spin up to 700 RPM. It’s designed for drains 2 to 8-in. in diameter and features a tool-less clutch adjustment to quickly switch between 7/8 to 1 ¼-in. cable sizes. The machine also comes with a Trident Sectional Cable Decoupler for disconnecting cables efficiently and a cable feeder with guide tube for easy loading and unloading into an enclosed cable carrier. Infield clutch serviceability minimizes downtime and an enclosed cable carrier and cable feeder enhance cleanliness by reducing exposure of the cables on the jobsite.
