General Pipe Cleaners Model DRZ-PH drain cleaner
The powerful, portable Model DRZ-PH power drain cleaner from General Pipe Cleaners quickly and cleanly clears clogged sink, tub and laundry drains in 1 1/4- to 3-inch lines. Weighing only 30 pounds, the lightweight, compact machine features a variable-speed power cable feed for optimal control feeding and retrieving cable at up to 16 feet per minute. General’s 4-foot guide tube and pneumatic foot pedal substantially minimize operator contact with wet, spinning cable during drain cleaning, so hands and job sites stay clean and safe. The Model DRZ-PH can be operated either horizontally or vertically — it’s stable both ways. The silent motor won’t disturb others, and the convenient carry handle on top of the frame facilitates transport to and from jobs. The rust-resistant aluminum drum carries up to 50 feet of 1/4-inch and 5/16-inch, or 35 feet of 3/8-inch Flexicore wire rope center cable. 800-245-6200;

RIDGID K9-12 FlexShaft drain cleaning machine
RIDGID, part of Emerson’s professional tools portfolio, introduces the K9-12 FlexShaft drain cleaning machine, the latest in RIDGID’s FlexShaft line. The K9-12 is the smallest of the machines and perfect for residential use, eliminating the need to repeatedly unclog the same household drainlines. Clearing up to 30 feet of 1 1/4- to 2-inch pipe, the K9-12 breaks up grease, hair and other soft blockages, making it ideal for kitchen and bath sinks, as well as tubs and shower drains. Powered by an 1,800 to 2,500 rpm cordless drill, the machine’s chain knocker expands inside the pipe to quickly clear the blockage and restore the pipe to full flow. A flexible, protective sheath encapsulates the cable, keeping it fully enclosed for less mess and faster cleanup. The built-in clutch design also extends the cable life. 800-474-3443;
