    Default Ridgid K45 AF ??

    Good, bad, OK heavier or lighter compared to the super vee? I have two super vee's good machines but no auto feed. I'm just sick of the stop and pull some out feed repeat some places it's a PITA. Thinking if I put my super vee's on ebay I can get one K45. For less effort on my forearms, back and knees.

    I have used both and there is no way in hell I'd go back to using a Super Vee. I bought all 3 of my brand new K-45AF's for around $200.00 each on eBay.

    On the Super Vee's with the power feed you need to put it in reverse to retrieve the cable. Ridgids power feed is far superior.

    Although the Super Vee may be more leak proof ???

    Better get a back strap for the overheads & eat your Wheaties for the extra weight.

    If Rod keeps buying machines he'll need one of these to be able to climb through the pass without someone pushing him....
