Well I have a manual one which didn’t work doesn’t have the juice , even the first plumber had a different style of electric auger but couldn’t open after struggling
This second guy had this and good skill , took him 10 mts , machine looked solid .

If you own any Ryobi tools, they have this cordless auger for $84. A auger is a good investment. Just one call for a plumber is more than the cost of the tool.

At first I thought cordless is overkill until I decided to use it to clear a clog in the downspout. Works fine

Looks like a good find OP. The video review of it on Harbour Freight is glowing. If it worked on larger diameter pipe i would buy it for poosplosion prevention.

Bought this on sale a couple years ago after a hand one didn't get the job done.... Ive used it approx 5 times... I'd say it's paid itself off. How much would a plumber charge to unclog a drain x5?

There was a YouTube video a guy in the states did that sold me on it, was hilarious.

so i'm trying to buy one but their website is broken... when i try to do in store pickup at a store where they clearly shows its in stock, it asks me to check my shipping address and won't let me continue.
then I saw that they are apparently offering to cover up to $50 of shipping costs on all orders above $50 before tax, which this obviously qualifies for, it tells me to still check my address...
so basically I can't pickup at store, nor have it shipped to me... SOL

Had an issue once, got lucky the bill was covered. At $99 this is a fraction of a call of a plumber and just peace of mind that if I don't have be as anal about washing stuff down the pipes.

Thanks OP I'm getting one

I have a manual auger for small clogs. For big clogs, I just rent a tool from home depot. You can get a huge machine that's better for main drains for about $65. You can also rent a similar power tools for about $40. But if I see that Ryobi battery tool on sale, I'll probably pick it up just to have, much easier than manual tool. I guess it depends on how frequently you need it, for me it's not more than once every few years.

Or maybe I'll get one of these that you attach to a drill you already have. https://www.amazon.ca/DrainX-Heavy-Ergo ... 08QZ24DR6/

I did recently have to rent the big beast with a cutter end piece from HD to clear my main drain. City scoped it and found some roots on my side. The big beast worked like a charm. I'll need to get some RootX to ensure they don't come back. Anyone used it? Where's the best place to get it?

If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.
