Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
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
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product works well for our plumbing maintenance work. It is lightweight and compact, easy to use for our staff. This unit works well but we use a 'support device' to support the machine at sink drain height while cleaning drains. February 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Happy with the purchase. I wish I had bought one with 50ft. snake, since I only get 20' of use from a 25ft snake ! I have an Idea for cleaning & Oiling the used SNAKE ! ( 2 )1" x 10- ft. PVC Electrical Conduits, or more depending on the length of the Snake ! Attach a WYE at the feed end. At the WYE, install an adapter for a Garden Hose on the branch side, the other to the feed end of the Conduit. If you use the machine quite often, you can install a dual feed hose adapter with ball valves that would allow you to turn off the water,connect your wet/dry vac discharge to the other side & blow out the Snake until it is dry. Then use a couple of cans of WD-40, while retrieving the snake back from the conduit, spray continuous too thoroughly oil the Snake.Need to draw a diagram for better understanding.Tell me what you think ! January 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by did the job well- tree roots eliminated! The auto feed and interchangeable cutters give a lot of scope in how to overcome the problems. Good tool to have on hand next time the problems occur. December 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This tool should be in every mechanically inclined homeowners toolbox. It could pay for itself with it's first use !!! I bought this tool and the K-400 Sewer Snake when I got a $1500 estimate to clean my drain and sewer lines from a Roto Rooter company in the Memphis Tennessee area. I told him to get back in his truck. I then went and purchased both tools and did the job myself. I have a 3 bath home and it took nearly 8 hours to clean all my drains and sewer lines but the 2 tools did there job and asked for more. I don't suggest purchasing these specific tools for commercial work but a homeowner will not be disappointed. December 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is the 3rd one that I have bought The product keeps getting better and better with each new model. I like the light weight and the easy changing of cable sizes. The cutting bits work great November 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gets the Job Done. Strong and Reliable, a little on the heavy side, Over all a great Tool November 25, 2014

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.
