Can this be used to pump up bicycle tires and swimming floats

Asked by: Emily
I use this on my car tires, lawnmower tires, and our 7 foot pool duck which took longer than expected but I did not have the proper fittings, if I would have the proper fittings it would’ve took half the amount of time, so yes this air compressor will literally pump up any and everything, with the proper attachments.

16-Gauge 2-1/2 in. Straight Finish Nailer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 318.

I previously owned a 3 gal Campbell Hausfeld compressor that I used about six times a year to fill automotive tires and power pneumatic nailers. Over the last half dozen years, it got the job done, but it was so noisy (rated 93 dB @ 3 ft) I had to wear earplugs when it ran. With a 3 gal tank and a max pressure of 110 psi the air delivery was only 0.5 SCFM @ 90 psi. I usually had to plug it in three times to get enough air to top off my four pickup truck tires. last time I plugged it in, it was dead as a door nail. So, I bought this Ridgid. The overall physical dimensions are not much larger, but it is a huge step up from the CH. First off, while it is loud, at 80 dB I don't need to wear air plugs. The larger compressor and 6 gal tank make a tremendous difference delivering 150 psi max pressure and 2.6 SCFM @ 90 psi. I am now able to top off four tires with one tank fill. The dual quick couplers and quarter turn ball valve tank drain are very nice features. This is a very nice compressor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light nailer, avoid Porter Cable nails I purchased the first nailer and it made it halfway through my first day before starting to pancake the nails and/or shoot them halfway in and get jammed in the gun. I checked the pressure, oiled the front where it shoots the nails out and it continued to do it. Exchanged for a new one and ended up having the same problem. Contacted Ridgid customer support (who were quickly available) and they said that Porter Cable brand nails have been showing problems because they started to manufacture the nail heads slightly smaller, which made sense because it appeared that the nail heads were getting bent over inside the gun. Purchased Hitachi nails and its worked great ever since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Trim Nailer!! A Definite Must HAVE!! This is by far the best finish nailer that I have ever used!! Tons of great features that were not available on older style nail guns. The weight and balance of the tool in your hand is perfect. There is a swivel air connect, belt clip that turns, and the overall weight and feel contribute to a very comfortable tool to be using. Not that any of these are a necessity, they are just awesome benefits to have!! The exhaust port twists nicely to direct air in a direction that is preferred. Unlike other nail guns, this model is oil free which is nice. With some of my older nail guns, it was always difficult finding the eye dropper of oil prior to use. The actual rubber grip is extremely comfortable in your hands!! There are many adjustments that can be made without tools including: exhaust direction, depth, and trigger function. There is plenty of visibility to see how much nails are remaining which avoids dry firinig. (The nail gun has a dry fire protection mechanism which extends life) The nail gun comes with a nice heavy duty carrying case and a small box of trim nails. I would definitely recommend!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tool to Own Purchased this nail gun because my 15 year old angled Bostich blew a seal while installing new brick molding and storm door. I decided on this product because of the price but more importantly I've been using rigid power tools for awhile with no issues. I decide to forego the angle nail gun and try the straight nailer. This gun worked great, took it home loaded the 2 inch nails that came with it and finished an hour later. For me, the straight design was easier to handle and align with the target. The angle may give you more nails but I would recommend the straight. Can't provide any details for longevity but I'm a home owner with contractor skills and I don't have to worry about using it everyday.

I purchased this compressor several months ago and am extremely pleased with it. I have used it for siding, roofing, and framing work thus far and it has performed flawlessly. I can't keep up with the speed of the compressor so I never have to wait for it. The compressor isn't very loud, even when used indoors. Additionally, the unit pressurizes to 150 psi so, when using pneumatic tools that operate at 120 psi, the compressor lasts quite a while between compression cycles which further reduces noise pollution. I very highly recommend this compressor. Just be sure to pick up an air pressure regulator along with it.

Good thing there is a 3 year warranty but the repair shop that Home Depot referred me to has bad reviews on service and turn around time when doing warranty work. I will have to buy something else in the mean time.
