Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WillKo Great, quiet, versatile compressor
Bought this compressor as an upgrade for a smaller Ridgid compressor. It smokes it in every regard. Has tons of capacity for any type of nailer... a noticeable difference from my previous compressor. It is also MUCH quieter and has much shorter repress time.
The fact that you can put the noise outside and keep the tank close is the icing on the cake. It really makes for tons of flexibility, saves space and extension cords, too.
The unit is also built very, very well. This is by far the nicest compressor i've ever owned. The only thing I could possibly wish for is a dolly kit or wheels, but it is light enough when you separate the parts.
Thanks for the great product!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by FCMike On/Off switch is not durable.
On/Off switch is not very durable. I have to replace it and I'm sure with all of the additional components attached to the switch that it will be VERY expensive.
Too bad a good machine otherwise has a poorly designed switch. It is a part that is used all the time; it should last. Too bad.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ricsgone Outstanding compressor
I bought this compressor 10 years ago to replace a piece of garbage Craftsman that went south. I have had excellent service from this tool. It flawlessly performs every time I have an opportunity to use it. It has built my shop, run all of my pneumatic tools and provides plenty of air for clearing sawdust and other debris. Not sure why others are having issues other than it is loud when running. I have recommended this compressor to friends and family, and several bought the same model several years ago. Theirs are still working well to this day.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by nailhead82 compressor broke 8 months of use. normal operation, no abuse to compressor, just broke.
This is the second Ridgid compressor I have owned. The first one broke ( reed valve failed and destroyed the piston and cylinder) took it back to get it replaced, out of luck had to buy a new one. Thought I would give Ridgid one more chance, Bought the Tri Stack unit. Broke after very light normal use after 8 months. Was still under warranty, was fixed and returned in 4 weeks. Suggestion for Ridgid. Replace compressor when customer brings it back for repair. I had to buy another compressor to use while my damaged one was being repaired. I will not buy another Ridgid tool..... I hope that the repaired compressor will last for years to come but I,m not counting on it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by builderchris good features, un use able
Very loud, will drive you out of the room. Requires too many amps to power up compressor motor. New home on 20 amp outlet and wouldn't kick over. Must plug in next to breaker box (shorter wire length).
This was a reconditioned unit-the ample availability of them speaks to the quality.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by trixxter Excellant product for a guy on the move
Excellent product as I am a professional cabinet trim carpenter. I like the fact that I can take the head unit with me in another room. It is fast to pump up and not constantly running.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SawdustnStitches Love the features
The ability to separate the tank and compressor is a big plus for me. Don't always need to haul to whole unit around. The compressor does draw a lot of power when starting up, especially against the back pressure of a partially full tank, Overall, I'm pleased with the machine. It's not nearly as loud as my old pancake compressor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mchlengel very functional
i love this compressor, although it is on the heavier side the fact that it splits into 2 pieces for ease of transportation is a plus. also you can use just the motor for quick punch list, fill the tank as a reservoir or use it a regular compressor
