  • Auto-Clean™/K-30 or K39?????

    I have been laboring for years with an old manual feed Rigid 40' drill which alway seems to kill my back. And eventually, the line always seems to kink. Which one of these, or something else would you reccommend?? I like the K-30 since you don't have to hold the drill, and the cover over the line. But, then why is the k39AF $200 more?? Also, what's the best place to buy onleine? K-40 actually looks like the way to go?? Any opinions?

    Thanks in advance!

    well to be truthfull If you walked into my house with the K-30 I would walk you out it looks like a toy sorry the K-40 looks a lot more perfesional and that in my mind makes customers happy but on that note I also have not used eather one I have used the K-39 and liked it I now own the K-45AF and it plenty of power and looks great Thats only my 2 cents

        Out of the choices you mentioned, I would suggest the 39. Well worth the money. I have a 39af and love it. I do like the 45, but cannot justify another machine at this point.

          I like and own the K 39 AF. Not a tool that will last a life time ,but great ROI. I like Allen J Coledman or Cable Center Tony or Tony Jr. There prices are both fair and they both know the ridgid product. Get the auto feed a must have in my book.

              Looks like the k-45AF is the newer version of the k-39AF? I will have to look for the best prices.

              BTW: is this a midwest only forumn

              Thanks for input.

                            Ha! No way is it a pro tool. More like a 1 time DIY tool. Got to be nice too it or I'm sure one would carry it out in pieces.

                            I would like a professional grade of this design though. Or a professional lav & tub machine that is NOT the K39 or K45.

                            Suggestions?
