Pipe Tools: RIDGID K-45 and K-45AF Drain Cleaning Machines

The Ridgid K45AF Autofeed drain cleaner.

RIDGID introduces the new K-45 manual and K-45AF AUTOFEED drain cleaning machines with optimized power up to 600 RPM.

The K-45 drain cleaners are designed for 3/4- to 2 1/2-inch drain lines. Cable is offered in three sizes of 1/4, 5/16, 3/8 inches, each in varying of lengths of up to 50 feet.

The K-45AF drain cleaner features advanced two-way AUTOFEED letting the operator clean drains better and faster, quickly working back and forth through drain blockages to completely clear lines. The ability for users to advance and retrieve the cable without stopping to reverse the motor reduces job times by 15 percent.

The K-45 and K-45AF machines have variable speed operation from 0 to 600 RPM to give the operator complete control in all situations. The inner drum prevents leakage to reduce on-site cleaning and clean-up times.

The drain machines offer a quick-acting, slide chuck that locks the cable. The inner drum design eliminates cable flip-over within the drum and allows for quick cable change out, and a compression-wound inner core cable combines strength and flexibility to avoid kinking. The units have soft touch grips on their ergonomically designed handles.

"The K-45 family of drain cleaners are the professional's choice for cleaning small secondary drain lines," said Renee Brown, product manager, drain cleaning, RIDGID. "The smooth, soft start AUTOFEED feature on the K-45AF machine allows the user to keep their hands off the cable, avoiding mess, and giving the user total control to completely work through blockages and retrieve obstructions."

The K-45 and K-45AF drain cleaning machines are ideal for applications such as sinks, bath tubs and showers.

The K-45 machine weighs 12.6 pounds and the K-45AF machine weighs 13.8 pounds making both easy to carry and store. The K-45 drain cleaners come with the RIDGID lifetime warranty.
