Product Overview

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

I own a bar and restaurant, would this work with urinals? The traps on most urinals are pretty tight.

Asked by ATMilik August 22, 2020

Answers

No. the cable diameter would be too flimsy. I would buy a toilet / urinal auger. By the manual one until you have the use for a battery power unit. Toilet/ urinal augers are much more durable

Can you put a different cable inside this k45 woth a drop head for example. And if so which model dable do you recommend

Asked by George April 28, 2020
1
Answer

Yes, you can put a different cable in the K45 and use a different tool head , like a drop head. A T-217 Drop Head (RIDGID Catalog #63065) fits on the end of a C-4, C-6 or C-6IC Cable (these are 3/8" cables in 25' or 35' lengths) that would be able to load into the K45. You can also add a "C" Cutter, Spade Cutter or 4-Blade Cutter attachment on the end of those cables.

No stand..it sucks ,hurt your arms.

Is this thing capable of handling different diameter cables 5/16, 3/8 ect.

Asked by Handy July 4, 2017
1
Answer

Yes it it capable of this. Apparently the cables are available separately or with the K45 as a couple of different kits.

I would like to get a k45 with the 50' 5/16 cable right from the start and not waste money on the 25' one. Make that happen

Asked by Handy July 4, 2017
1
Answer

Looks to me as if the only way to get the K45 with a 50' cable included is to buy a kit that comes with 3 cables. There are 2 Ridgid kits out there, and they are each apparently over $500. You'll probably do best, price-wise, with the "stock" K45 + the separate 50' cable.

Hi Weneedhelp, This drain gun is too small for a sewer main, you need a longer 50 to 100 foot, drain cleaner designed for 6 inch sewer mains. Mike

Cleared the clog. Definitely heavy duty. The forward / reverse options are strange combined with the barrel rotation. Makes it easy to use incorrectly. Sort of a bad design. Also why can’t the snake come coated with rust inhibitor? Very annoying.

First purchase of a drain cleaning machine, so I don't have a lot of experience to go by. That being said, it got the job done. I'm pretty fit with good upper body strength, but I have to say this is a bit heavy and awkward. Obviously there's a lot of machine here as it's all-in-one, but I wish it could have been possible to hold the unit with one hand while working the cable with the other.

this machine is a very worthy of it's reputation if and only if your drain line is only 25 feet long, found out that there is a 50' cable that is recommended if your drain is further than a 25 feet length.I would recommend this machine to anyone that has a clogged drain.
