The Ridgid part number 87597 is a Integral Wound Solid Core Cable.
Question: Cable Repair
The end of the cable broke off on my K-380. Can I buy a replacement end for it? It has the inner core and wound cable on outside.

To install the 91037 3/8" Cable Repair Coupling. You will need to cut off the damaged cable back far enough so you have a good square end. Then you will insert the cable into the coupling, and weld the coupling to the cable to hold it in place. If you cable is 1/2 inch you will need to use part number 91042 1/2" Cable Repair Coupling.
The part at the end of the 87582 C-32IW Cable 3/8 X 75'. Is the coupling to attach the tools for clearing drains etc. If you look at the last page of the parts diagram for the Ridgid K-400 Drain Cleaning Machine. You will see all the tools available that will attach to the cable coupling.

I just spoke with the factory and the motor for the K-375, part number 37977 is still available. However it is on a factory back order until the middle or end of January.
Hope this helps,
