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 ! Rated 5 by Petenumbers

Like the front handle to go forward and back is really nice feature 4 Rated 5 by Husler

Hi tried it on the bathroom sink it went through the P-trap when I was doing it, it was hard to take out of the P-trap because there was a hole in it and it wrapped around the trash bag in the trashcan , I was hoping it would go around the P-trap but it's so sharp point on it I just poked a hole through the the metal on the P-trap . So I put it through the hole in the sink I mean in the wall and it works really great only two couples minutes and it was done ! Tried it in the tub or the air vents that took the plate off and then it went through there just a couple 2 to 3 feet only took a couple seconds and then it was cleaned up. The hardest thing is to clean the hair off the tip when you're done with the project .

Works like a charm Rated 5 by Russ606

I waited for several years to buy this being the cost. I brought the ridged hand spinner than to a newer one that you could attach a drill to the end. I got tired of it taking so long and went ahead and ordered the K 45AF, it worked just as shown on the videos on the website. Very easy to use and never got stuck in the 25' of pipe I was Rodder to clean a slow kitchen drain twice because of the eases of use. I could not believe how fast I was able to go through all the turns in the pipes. I only wish they would of put a 35' long Rodder my new house is 30' wide before the kitchen drain goes into the main drain and the 25' was too short. There was no other clean out without cutting the ceiling so I ordered the 50' one and can't wait to clean the slow drain and should be a breeze.

Did the job with ease Rated 5 by Camperdave
  Yes, I recommend this product.
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.
