The drum finally broke on mine. After 100 jobs I bought a Supervee with a handy stand. Either one does a great job. Ridge locks down for a rust blockage. General handystand gets used more than I thought it would. As far as autofeeds go I didn't have patience for either one.

Honestly I'm not a big fan,
I took the auto feed off because it woukd feed extremely slow.

Plus I put a 1/4" cable and the "slide" clutch" won't hold the cable.

I ordered a few new cables and inner canisters. I got the cables longer than usual so I can leave about 5 feet in the drum at all times.

So far, so good. The more I use it, the more I like it. It's more comfortable to handle than a chuck type handgun and the feeder keeps me from having to move the unit around too much. The lack of a Jacobs chuck will bite me once in a while but this unit will clear 95% of what I ask it too.

We have them on the trucks for the small jobs that they are intended for they are ok. Have a spare drum for the 5/16" and 1/4" cables does make for a quick clean change over. I do miss having the guide hose from the K40 it kept the mess down to zero.

oil the auto feed often, otherwise it won't feed or retract well. It can be heavy and awkward at time, too. Overall, it does an ok job.

So far I find it to be the least awkward hand gun I've used much to my surprise.

I love my K45AF gets used often! You've made a nice investment. Cable replacement involves some sticker shock.

I use different brand cables. Some cost more than others, but they all give a huge return on there respective investments.
