Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PGarza Biggest Donation Made To Home Depot
Bought this compressor along with 2 Rigid Roofing Nailers & 2-100' air hoses. Might have had 8 hours on the motor. It won't load more than 50 psi in the tanks and stays on. No leaks anywhere. Went back to my local Home Depot store and was given the run around about the warranty only covers certain things to drop it off along with $19.99 deposit and they would look at it. Long story short. I went to Lowe's and bought a Dewalt compressor to finish the roof. My biggest mistake was switching to Rigid from Dewalt and went back. Oh well we live and learn.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by scott less than happy
The overall design was the selling point. Only a few months and probably 50 hours of run time total and the compressor only generates 125 pressure. No big deal right? wrong. Compressor won't shut off by itself and 2-3 weeks to have it repaired. Now I have to buy a replacement while this one gets warranty work done. I could have bought 3 throw away compressors that lasted 100 times longer than this.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jtap777 very poor quality
I used this product about five times before the thing broke and ruined the reed valves. I had to fix it my self with parts from the internet but did not fix the actual problem which had caused the reed valves to break in the first place. So I had to take the motor and piston and combine it with a different tank and pressure switch which works 100 times better than the original with all my added upgraded capabilities. Now it is the best compressor ever and I will not trade it for anything.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jsb1140 Very excellent boat anchor
I have had this compressor for 2 years and there is a problem with the switch turning off. I am on my 3rd switch which supposedly solved the problem. Now the tanks will not fill up so there must be a leak somewhere even though you can't find it with the motor off. I'm out the cost of I expected to be a good compressor and 3 trips to the repair shop which almost exceeds the cost of the compressor. This compressor was lightly used and never abused. I'm not going to waste any more money on it and use it as a boat anchor.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RepairHound Not so portable...
Too heavy and bulky for portable use. I returned it and bought one that was easier to handle with similar features.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by renov8tr Very good buy!!
I purchased this unit last fall to replace a rigid gas powered wheelbarrow compressor.
As a contractor, I rely on my compressor to be up to snuff. So far, this has been a very good purchase.
It has done everything I've asked it to do, from airing up tires to removing sawdust, to powering nail guns.
On a cold Wisconsin November day, I was called in to assist on a roofing project. Two other compressors on site were failing. We Plugged in The Rigid to the exterior outlet, and ran 2 roofing nail guns for 10 hours, with no problem. More recently, this past weekend I used this compressor on another roofing project. This time I separated the compressor. The tanks were up on the roof, with the head inside the garage. In both of these roofing jobs, the Rigid worked fine.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Zman Was a great toy until failed
I purchased this compressor in 2013. Has been running like a champ from an outlet and from my extension cord until recently. I needed it where electricity was only available from a generator. Plugged it in to the generators (4k running) 20A outlet and it was just humming also choking my generator. Later home when it didn't work from an outlet either I started troubleshooting. Found the starting capacitor blown out. Weeks later when I replaced the capacitor it is now acting up from its dedicated outlet too. Won't start up under pressure and takes multiple tries to get it running. It is pretty much worthless at this point. Seems like something the manufacturer should consider for recall after all these similar complaints.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jay Hunk of garbage!
This thing is garbage. Worked or week or two. Check valve broke and compressor would only fill tank once. When air was used and pressure was lost it would not turn it's self back on. Can not find parts for this and when I ordered a aftermarket one it wasn't a exact fit and I broke another piece on the thing trying to make it fit. NEVER again will I buy rigid. STICK WITH DEWALT!!!
