Answer: 
Online only, from Home Depot. HOWEVER, take note: RYOBI hi-jacked the manufacturer of this product so now it's named RYOBI. On Home Depot's website, search for RYOBI 6-gal. pancake air compressor.
It's the exact same compressor, except for the exterior color which is now mint green (instead of orange).

Answer: 
Right about 30 seconds when I've been using it. That's without introducing any further load to the tank though. Will be longer if you are in constant use.

6 gal. Vertical Pancake Compressor is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poboy This compressor would be perfect for your intended use. I have used it on several jobs to run two nail guns and it keeps up just fine. I would imagine the cfm usage would be about the same as airing up a tire on an atv or any other tire. i think you will be very pleased with its performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits my needs exactly. This item replaces a huge 30 gallon craftsman unit. I can run all of my air tools and can carry it to the job. It drives 3 1/2 inch nails, brads, staples and a small rotary tool. Very easy to set up and takes up a third of the space of my old unit. It is much easier to adjust the pressure and provides enough air to handle all of my small jobs. The two quick connects are handy when you need to add some air to a tire or use a different tool without switching hoses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Airflow and details make this a winner I got the 6 gal Ridgid Vertical Pancake compressor to compare it against my old Porter Cable 3.5 gallon compressor. I ran them head to head in several tests to see which one performed better then looked at the overall fit and finish as well as the design features to decide which to keep as my main unit. The first thing I was interested in was how quickly can I get to work. A.K.A., how long does it take to fill the compressor. I was surprised that the Ridgid was able to fill the 6 gallon tank to 150psi in just 7 sec longer than the PC was able to fill 3.5 gallons to 135psi (2:38 vs 2:31). So clearly the motor on the Ridigid is beefier and/or more efficient. But does that come at a price with noise? I don't have a decibel meter so I just went on how it sounded. Both compressors are loud as they are oil-free. But the Ridgid seemed to have a deeper tone to it that made it slightly less "grating" on the ears. So now I put it to work! The Ridgid performed all the general compressor tasks I asked it to with ease. I shot full size framing nails with it, finish trim nails and ran air tools like an impact driver. The Ridgid performed on par with my old compressor in all these areas. The extra volume of the tank did allow me to shoot 5 more framing nails (19 vs. 14) before the compressor kicked on to recharge. I also ran through a whole clip of nails as fast as I could and the Ridgid kept up the whole way at 100psi. The area where the Ridgid really shined through was when I pulled out my HVLP. Most HVLP guns say you need 4.5 SCFM or something in that range to run them. I setup a Harbor Freight gravity feed gun and started test shooting some water. The first thing I realized is that it was atomizing far better than my old PC. Then I looked at the regulator on the gun. I had the gun regulator set to 50psi. When I pulled the trigger the gun leveled out at 30psi with the Ridgid. Doing the same with the PC it leveled out at 20psi. That means I get a whole 10psi higher airflow to the gun with the Ridgid!! I know I should be running a much larger compressor to do my spraying, but it's nice to know I can do what I need with this compressor. So now for some of the details. One of the features I really enjoy are the ease of carrying with the vertical design. It's not as far to bend down to pick it up and it doesn't bang off your leg like a round one does; your leg just slides along the large "pancake". This is nice because it is slightly heavier than my old unit. The other things I thought were well laid out were the power cord management, the quarter turn drain valve (vs. the schrader valve style) and the single hand quick connect for the hose. There is one area I was a little puzzled by though. The gauges for both the tank pressure and the outlet pressure where a nice size at 2". The problem is that it was a little hard to read the increments. For some reason the gauges go all the way to 250psi. This makes all the increments closer together and they are only labeled at 25psi increments. The puzzling thing about this is that the tank is only rated to 150psi and I can't think of anything I would want to do over that pressure anyway. Why not take the scale up to 160psi and spread out the increments and label them at every 10 or 20psi? That would be my recommendation on how to improve this unit. That being said, that is a small concern and doesn't really affect my usage. This unit has done everything I've asked of it and I will be getting rid of my old PC unit to make way for the Ridgid Vertical Pancake Compressor to be my main compressor. Pro's: -------- -Strong motor -Vertical carry design is more ergonomic -One-hand quick connect hose input -Quarter turn drain valve -Power cord management -Airflow Con's: -------- -Slightly heavier than 3.5gal -Unnecessarily small/close increments on gauges

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product I needed a new pancake compressor for small jobs around the house and at work. I went ahead and bought this and i can really say i am very impressed. Very easy to handle and carry, light weight. when it is running it is not to loud at all. I have done a few trim jobs with this already and its performed great. The drain plug at the bottom is very nice too. Does not take that long to build up too Max psi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Air Compressor owner (Pro finish-carpenter). For those who agonize over the discontinuation of this magnificent AC, don't worry! You can still order it online from Home Depot BUT the product changed name: It's now RYOBI, and the orange color is replaced with mint green. Other than that: It;s the exact same AC.
