RYOBI Drain Auger Introduction

RYOBI Drain Auger Introduction

P4001_2_FinalRYOBI Tools already seems to have every tool under the sun as part of the vast ONE+ line of tools. As of right now they have over 50 tools on that platform and today they’re adding one more. What more could they add that they don’t already have in the line? How about a RYOBI drain auger? Just about every homeowner I know has had to call a plumber at some point to have a line snaked because there was a clog and the drain was backed up. What does that service go for? Last time it was a hundred bones for me. That more than covers the cost of this new tool.
