Purchased (on sale!) to replace a Porter Cable that quit me 1 month past warranty...and it worked like a champ! Some folks complained about noise, but it's no noisier than the PC it replaced! Says it has a more powerful motor and and does seem to recover a little faster than the PC compressor did. I've had it for 2-3 weeks and have run from 1200-1500 coil nails thru my Dewalt coil nailer using my new Ridgid; no problem keeping up. Also like that it has a 3-year warranty (PC has 1-year). Has a regulator "push" lock that seemed to work, not sure how needed it is, but pressure did not vary using it. Great home use compressor; saves me from having to drag around my larger one for most jobs! Would definitely buy again and recommend. Next job....crown moulding!

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.

I bought this to run two roofing nail guns simultaneously when I re-roofed my home. This compressor provided us with plenty of air to run the two nail guns, significantly reducing the time to do the job.

I have had this compressor for almost a year now and I have experienced no issues so far! I upgraded to this 6 gallon compressor from a 2 gallon compressor of a different brand so a lot of my perspective may just be that it's so much better than a 2 gallon. Ha! But seriously I like that it has 2 air ports and I like the feel of the carrying handle. The whole unit feels balanced when carrying it and stays balanced on my workbench. This is good because when it is filling up I rest knowing that it's not trying to slowly move off of my workbench. The rubber feet help a ton with that as well. With all this said, it is a compressor and it is still very loud. It's a more bearable loudness compared to the squeal of my old 2 gallon compressor, but it is still loud to me. I usually wear hearing protection when I turn it on

  • Built better, stronger and made to be tossed around.

The new 18ga 2 1/8 brad nailer may not look very different from its predecessor but big things come from this little brad nailer. I have tested this nailer to it's full potential even to the point of under powering. We used a block of Oak which is a good medium to for testing nails due to the density and it's hardness. This baby had no problem sinking 2" nails on single shot and even rapid fire down to 75psi. One of the features I like the most is when working on lighter materials like MDF the gun was designed to completely eliminate blowout. The newer smaller nose gives you better visibility and a smaller foot print. Now you can see where you're shooting along with not disturbing the shape of the wood. The newly designed magazine has great feedback and opens with one press of a button. I love the newly designed casted air defuser as it really adds an extra level of durability.

This Nailer worked perfectly! Came out of the box ready to get to work. It worked every time, left no marks from the tip and no oil spray. Never had any jams. The project I was working on occasionally required different length nails and it was super easy to switch back and forth between nail lengths. I definitely recommend this one!

Just got this 6 gallon Rigid compressor. Have not used it enough to see how it will last. Looks to be very well constructed. Welds are nicely done. Loved the air chucks that connect the air hoses. I followed the break in instructions to a tee. After the break in I closed off the bottom tank valve and it pumped up quick. Just as noisy as my old Porter Cable. Held air in the tank over the weekend. I have 3 other compressors and none will do that. To me that means things are tight. I got this compressor because of its portability. I can leave my big Dewalt in the trailer for framing and tote this little guy up the stairs and into clients houses for trim guns. Hope it will last a bit. 3 year warrenty was a plus over the Porter Cable.

I used to own a craftsman that was the same dimension but held far less air and was less efficient. This Ridgid compressor is awesome!

Ok i did my research. The cfm is the amount of air this compressor and push out at 80/90 psi. And WOW.. i am impress. This pancake air compressor can push out the air to run bigger nail guns some paint guns. And also you can lower the air pressure to use a air brush. (I will up load some pictures later. ) But from my dollars. This is one of the best air compressor. Long story short. Look at the air power tool you want to use . The check the cfm. And see if the air compressor is good enough. I know mine os good enough. Hope this helps.
