Product Overview

  • Drain cleaning machine helps clear clogs in pipes and drains
  • AUTOFEED cable minimizes mess for easy operation
  • Lightweight with a durable drum that won't rust or dent
The RIDGID K-45AF Sink Machine is a drain cleaner machine with AUTOFEED system that advances and retrieves the cable at the push of a lever, up to 20 ft. per minute. It has a large tough, corrosion-resistant cable drum that withstands harsh treatment, it will not dent and it cleans easily. The two-piece "twist-lock" canister with interchangeable inner drum makes cable change-out simple and easy to match the right cable for the job. RIDGID drain cleaner machine includes 25 ft. of 5/16 in. cable ideal for pipes measuring from 3/4 in. to 1-1/2 in. It spins at 200 RPM during use and up to 600 RPM with no-load. The C-1 Inner Core drain snake cable has a vinyl-wrapped inner core to prevent rust and enhance cable life. It is compression wound for strength and resists kinking to negotiate tough bends and traps. The cable provides good flexibility and cleaning power to the cable end where the Bulb Head tears into the clog. The design of this drain cleaning tool has a lightweight feel, which allows for easy transportation around worksite and loading into service trucks or vans. Excellent for small line cleaning. Opens clogged lavatory, sink lines, urinals, and tub or shower drains. Includes: K-45AF Sink Machine with AUTOFEED of C-1 Inner core snake and Bulb Head Auger, RIDGID Drain Cleaning gloves, and Operator's Manual.

Questions & Answers

is this good for snaking out a toilet bowl to the sewer

Asked by: Joe
It is not recommended for this, probably because of possible damage to the bowl. I suppose if you remove the toilet, you could try it.

Is the snake attached to the drum?

I am little concern if keep pressing forward, the snake might come off the drum and get stuck in the pipe.

No it is not attached, according to the documentation.

I call up 49.99 drain unclogging service and was told that since its a holiday weekend the price is double. Wtf? I refused to give in to them so I went to my local Home Depot and picked up this bad boy. This machine is a beast. Worked better than the 49.99 guys machines and I did it even quicker than them. Well worth the money. Adios 49.99 !!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These work well, but there is a learning curve. The small diameter cables are very easy to flip ... These work well, but there is a learning curve. The small diameter cables are very easy to flip inside the drum, and if you aren't careful you can easily get your hand wrapped around the cable. These smaller cables are easy to kink as well. You want to be cautious when using one. Keep the drill as close to the drain opening as possible so that there is only as much loose and exposed cable as you absolutely have to have. Exposed cable can twist up on itself, damaging the cable; catch on objects like your hand, hair or beard which I know all too well from experience; or wind up hitting fixtures and causing damage. If you hit an object in the line and are not careful the cable will flip in the drum and knot itself up. If this happens you will need to pull the drum out and re-feed the cable in to it. Also, never run a cable machine in reverse. The reverse function is used only to unwind the cable if it gets wrapped up, or attempt and dislodge it if it gets stuck. Running a cable in reverse under strain will damage it, and Ridgid will not warranty a cable damaged in this way. For my money, I usually use a small drum machine inside a home, but I do have these on my trucks. They can work, but can be very problematic to the uninitiated. It takes some time to use these without any issues, and if you ruin a cable you won't be saving yourself any money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little steep but WELL WORTH IT Its expensive for just a little household work but if you feel you need it, its worth it. Especially the auto feed/retrieve, works like a champ and is easy to operate and stops the mess. Its not for the clogged toilet, use the Rigid 6ft toilet auger for that, another great tool, but if its a main line remove the toilet and use the drain gun. I own a couple of rentals and have had all types clogged lines and wish I could have bought this years ago. This is one product that really works like it promoted and does it well....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! This tool works great. I was able to unclog my tub in minutes. It is powerful. I have used other tools before and none have done the job as well as this one. Worth every cent.
