Default Ergo-Auger

Not soliciting sales, yet, just sharing the concept. Our extensive experience with the prototyping tell us:
1. Pistol-grip drain machine designs are now obsolete
2. Auto-feed mechanisms are un-needed now for at least up to 50' cables
3. This design beats all pistol-grip and also small floor models/"sink machines" in every way; it works well under lavs and kitchen sinks, vents, floor and shower drains, love it for tub overflow!
4. The lack of stress and strain it puts on the user allows user to focus on the clog/obstruction rather than the wrestling match that comes with the pistol rodder machine
5. Actually makes it a cleaner job, and once the improved drum comes out...no more drum spray/"rooster tail"
6. So ergonomic and easy to use a child can handle a job that a lot of adult men can't, but not advocating children actually do this

Thanks. It's crazy easy to use. Hopefully it's on the market soon so you can give it a go!

I can vouch for the often difficult use of the super vee. This design looks much easier, tho I would like to see how it performs ovet long distances and multiple bends

My opinion is that it performs exceptionally well with a 50' cable and as far as the bends go; because you're not fighting the weight of the machine it's easier to finesse the cable....it's a back and knee saver too.

But honestly, if a 45 pound child can demonstrate the machine imagine how a pro makes it perform. No child could ever do this with a k45, Super V or any other pistol grip design. I'll let you guys know as soon as it's out!
