Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tool A very well made tool. Easy-to-use, and quality made. I use it in a hotel, and it has easily done its job every time. Well recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works weell I liked all other cables needs to be marked so the you know how many feet that you have used. It could also use a stand for holding it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best answer to clogs, better than chemicals, this won't eat pipes!!!! This is a GREAT product! The auto feed is ingenious! You can feel the cable dig through the clogs, it will even pull the cable at times when it hits a clog, then you just reverse the cable a little. I love the lifetime warranty to!! If you use a hand snake you will throw it away after you use this thing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't recommend this product. Had it out for 2 uses and the handle slide that triggers the rod in/out movement must have bent or something and it is jamming the cable now. The rep is never around and have to wait forever to hear back about any possible warranties. I took it all apart, thought it was working well and turned it on to try it and it would not work. This sucks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great tool to use! tool was easy to handle and control, great investment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product Will be better if is possible to have a simple counter, which show how many meters are in the pipes. Missing more range of extra parts. For example - it is very difficult to find 6 mm. cable. The work environment is real clear. I like this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great machine for the price, relativelky portable compared to the big clunkers of General and Spartan When 49.95 sewer cleanout could not send someone on Labor Day weekend when I had 1/2-1" standing water in the basement, I searched on-line for a drain cleaning machine to snake out 4" main to street and back to the house. Ridgid K-400 fit my needs and K-45 the same for 1-1/2 and 2" sinK line to the main u-trap and back to house. Make sure to do spiral first, then spade or cutting head, as needed. DON'T BE CHEAP! READ THE MANUAL FIRST BEFORE USING THE MACHINE. Write the model and serial numbers on the manual, and REGISTER YOUR TOOL TO BE PROTECTED BY RIGID'S LIFETIME WARANTEE (UNUSUAL TO THE INDUSTRY). MUST wear leather work gloves in working the snake BUT I wear rubber gloves on hands as well to make waterproof and prevent sewer muck that goes through the work gloves from entering any small cuts on my hands. Slight problem w/ the rolling wheels as machine tended to drag on floor rather than roll on its wheels. Perhaps wheels should be larger diameter for bottom clearance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's very easy to use, And it's a lot liter then other brand's . Other brand's I used in the past were heavy and it took a lot out of my arm's to run it. But this was very easy to use and a lot lighter. And it still had the ball's to tear through a tough clog I had.

Answer: 
The only difference between the two is that the K-45 does NOT include the autofeed. AF stands for "auto feed". I highly recommend getting the optional autofeed, purchasing the K-45AF.

Answer: 
You are correct. The K-45AF has an autofeed, the ones that do not have the "AF" do not have an autofeed. You can always purchase the autofeed at a later time if you need to, part number 23908 is the autofeed and front drum assembly so you can change it to the AF version.
