Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kster Reconditioned Ridgid Air Compressor
I am a contractor and i purchased this air compressor because i was tired of buying cheap used tools from pawn shops ect, as well as tired of renting compressors when those i have purchased break down and judging by how often i use it and how long i use it that's exactly what they do every single time break. The cost to rent a compressor is $43 per day with a $100 deposit now you eventually get you deposit back "EVENTUALLY" but for 3 days of usage i spent $229 not including tax and i received my deposit back on my card 3 days later which i quickly learned that using cash would have been better. This reconditioned unit i purchased was in good shape when i seen it in the store however i could tell right away that it was a used item but nevertheless i bought it anyway because of it's price and i will just say this, it was one of the best buys i ever made, the unit is strong. durable and it runs multiple nail guns which in the fencing industry he who nails the quickest correctly get ur done, now add another nailer maaaan we be really moving. The compressor so far handled the heat and the beating we through at it very well and aside from it being heavy this is a great unit and i recommend it to anyone that's looking for a good compressor for a great price.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by beejorn rusty and signs of wear
box came with the compressor, but all the fittings and screws are rusty, and it shows sign of wear, so it is not something I would expect when you get something which is reconditioned. I would expect it to be in like new condition if there were wear marks on anything I would have expected them to change it out. Also the warranty on this compressor is only 1 year compared with 3 years if you get the new one. I did not see that in the online information and it would have made a big difference in the purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tano This is what a reconditioned tool should be!
This was one of my better experiences buying reconditioned tools from HD. Truly the condition I expected the item to be in, Like new, versus the “used “ condition of other purchases. The compressor worked perfectly and was just what I needed for the Bostitch floor nailer I am using. As you would expect, this baby is heavy, so keep that in mind if you need to carry this far or up and down stairs, but short of a pancake compressor, they are all heavy. I like the double air fittings which is a nice feature since I am using a finish nailer at the same time that I use the flooring stapler. No need to keep switching tools. One really cool feature is the tank drain; they routed both tanks to a single valve up front in an easy to get to location, no excuse not to drain the tank. I am very please with this purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OldSchoolJohnny Air Compressor (Reconditioned)
1) Couldn't believe how fast the item was received.
2) Very well packaged, and HEAVY!
3) Only issue, there was absolutely NO paperwork with the compressor. No user manaual or anything like that. Not that big a deal with todays internet accessability. I just downloaded it, but would be nice to have it included in with the item.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dprpl Good with some issues
Have owned this product for about 3weeks. Excellent shape for being reconditioned. No scratches, nicks on it. Pumps up fast and hold PSI well. Noisy. Heavy but I carry it with the handle just fine. I'm not a contractor. I'm a weekend warrior who will use this to finish my basement, build a deck. Only negative .... when draining the tank, the air coming out is dirty. I've drained the tank twice and it's getting cleaner. I drain the tank into an old towel to collect the dirt. Not sure if this is oil bypassing into the air tank at pump up. I will contact HD to investigate. Ok, second negative ... there was no owners manual or warrenty info with the compressor ... once again I will contact HD. You may want to inquire about this before purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by matsayswhat Definitely a "refurb"
The unit I got was definitely refurbished... and had been used quite a while before it was refurbished, as the tanks have sun fading on them.
That said, it appears that all of the components that matter are brand new, and I was able to pick it up for about $200 shipped, which is nice. My brother has their 5 gallon unit with wheels and it's been great for him at work, hopefully this one will do the same for me.
