RIDGID® FlexShaft™ Drain Cleaning Machines: The Tools You Won’t Want to Be Without

Jan 24, 2020 - ELYRIA, OHIO


Wall-to-wall clean with astonishing speed combined with simultaneous pipe inspection


Boost jobsite productivity with the new RIDGID® FlexShaft™ Drain Cleaning Machines, the latest high-speed drain cleaning innovation from the brand trusted by more professionals.  FlexShaft machines quickly and efficiently deliver wall-to-wall clean in 1 ¼-inch to 4-inch residential and commercial pipes up to 70 feet.


The lightweight and fully-contained FlexShaft machines are used in conjunction with a full suite of specialized accessories designed for clearing grease, sludge, small tree roots and soft blockages with less mess and enhanced speed.


FlexShaft machines utilize powerhouse chain knockers that expand to the size of the pipe to quickly clear the entire circumference. The chain knockers are connected to a flexible, nylon-sheathed cable that is housed in a fully enclosed drum and powered by a cordless drill attached to the driveshaft. The FlexShaft machines are purpose-built to be a lightweight, compact solution that can be easily carried from work vehicle to jobsite with minimal strain on the body.

Designed with efficiency and cleanliness in mind, FlexShaft machines allow for inspection cameras to remain in-pipe throughout the entire drain cleaning process for maximum efficiency. The durable, nylon sheath allows for the cable to be easily wiped clean as it is pulled from the line and its fully-contained drum limits jobsite cross-contamination.

“The FlexShaft machine is the next big thing to happen to drain cleaning, not only providing fast clearing of soft blockages, but also enhancing efficiency by allowing for inspection cameras to remain in-pipe while work is completed,” said Tim Dunphy, marketing director, Underground Technologies, RIDGID. “It’s the perfect complement to the industry’s most complete line of professional drain cleaning tools and one that every professional will want to have on their trucks.”


FlexShaft machines are backed by the RIDGID Full Lifetime Warranty.
