Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has excellent pro features I was working with an old drum trap did a great job. July 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for Small Jobs I had a clogged shower that I couldn't clear no matter what I tried... Drain cleaners weren't working and my auger was just to big to get past the drain trap... I ran a camera down the closet drain and found I had roots imbedded in the shower drain just before it connected to the main line... With almost no other options I called a plumber and was quoted $100 - $150 over the phone.. I then checked the reviews on the Ridgid K-45 Sink machine and liked what I read... I went to Home Depot, but must admit I was a bit sticker shocked.. My worries were compounded by the fact that this tool isn't returnable and if it didn't work I was really really stuck... I ended up biting the bullet and the rest was smooth sailing... This K-45 (I got the auto feeder unit) worked its way past the shower trap without a bit of effort... A few moments later I watched with my camera as the K-45 made its way to the roots... I had to spend a bit of time running the K-45 back and forth through the roots as this unit only comes with a bulb head - making it a lot harder to get rid of roots... I didn't realized the head on this particular unit was fixed until after I started using it... But overall I have no complaints and its already paid for 1/3 of itself after just one job...

Rated 1 out of 5 by Not sure how this tool gets good reviews I do not know how anybody says this tool is smooth running, the one i have has wobbled like a beast since day one. It throws water worse than any other drill machine i have ever used, they say the cable does not flip in the drum? Mine flips at the first resistance it finds. The levers to feed and retract are too far from my body in areas where the pipe is far under a cabinet or other tight space. I have read all the good reviews and wonder what kind of tool everyone used before that makes this one look good as I have not had any good experience with my k45af since day one, and I am a professional plumbing service tech. I have sent it back for repair and checking and they sent it back in the same condition so if that is as good as this machine is then I want my money back. Worst tool I EVER USED!!!!!! April 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by it took longet to remove the urinal than to unclog tge drain with the k45. Excellent product,easy to use, clean and efficient. March 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use Great product, super easy to use, cable does not link easily March 16, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by good so for machine needs some kind of stop about 2 foot from the end of cable , with out this the cable just keeps feeding out the machine. March 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bought overseas I purchased this machine to solve some drain issues. Thus far it works as advertised. I have used rigid tools in the past and they always performed well. This one is made in Belgium and took some doing to get. Durability is unknown at this time, used once so far but I also know I will need it again soon.... February 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Did the job with ease I had a blockage 14' in on the kitchen drain line, hair and grease. My hand drain snake wouldn't penetrate the blockage. I know the quality of Rigid tools; having owned many over the years. The K-45 hit the blockage , hesitated but for a moment, and pushed through. Made for one happy wife. Good tools don't come cheap, but they last and usually take care of whatever job you may be working on with comparative ease. February 7, 2015

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.

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.
