In a back to back on toilets knowing it's on the vertical, a drop-head is ideal on a telescoping 6' closet auger.

I don't own one but if you can hit it without pulling toilets, great.

I dont use Ridgid closet augers because they are homeowner quality compared to general. The ridgids are over priced...they should give those away to handymen. My general cost about 40.00 and thats cheaper than the steak dinner thats in the toilet your clearing What should they sell them for 20-30 bucks? I'd pay 200.00 for a general before i had to work with a free one from Ridgid and thats the truth Lets let the other weigh in and see what responses we get. I love reading opinions

General here simply because it is all I have ever used. Why change when you are happy with what you got. One suggestion on the 6 ft extension keep some snake oil on the truck to keep it lubricated. Biggest problem I use to have was if I didn't use it for a while it would rust up and wouldn't work worth a crap. As far as to what they cost they usually pay for themselves in no time no matter what you pay within reason of course. Usually between the 40 and 60 dollar price range is what I pay.

Thanks for all the information. Sounds like general has a strong following. I am going to give the General a try.

Thanks again!!!!

I could use a coat hanger and a rubber hose if I had too. Augering a water closet isn't rocket science
Most of the time I`ll just plunger it anyway...rotflmao

I own both the Ridgid and the General closet augers and I feel the Ridgid auger has much improved but the General still beats it hands down. This is a sentiment I have shared with the upper management at Ridgid.
