    I prefer the K45 for weight, balance and the fact that it's a plastic drum, but I think the Super Vee will probably last longer. I know guys with decade old Super Vees, yet I've only got about five or six years out of my Ridgid drill snakes.

    Default K-39af

    O own 2 of the k39AF's. How does the K-45AF compare? Other than color, I don't see a difference.

    Thanks

    I'm still using the Super-Vee with no auto feed. I don't use it enough to justify the purchase of a auto feed unit. I perfer to use the Model N whenever I can, and only use the Super-Vee on tub drains and lavs. Never used a auto feed on a pistol snake so I don't know what I'm missing.

    The first and only gun I bought was teh k-45 AF and I love it. I think it kind of spoiled me compared to the other models but its never let me down and is a breeze to work. I've been talking to a supplier about getting a second drum and running 35' of 3/8 in it as right now I run 25' of the 5/16. I think the bigger cable with the ends on it might be handy on sides and shower drains but thats just my thought. But they are proud of the bigger cable thats for sure.
