Ridgid 2.5-Gallon Portable Electric Air Compressor

Rating: 3 out of 5
  • Currently 3.0/5.0

You may have or may not have an air compressor. Chances are you don't. For the people who do have air compressors, or want one - you have an ideal want you want / or have.

Air compressors offer a wide verity of uses. On average, you never know when one might come handy. Air compressors are mainly used in factories, warehouses, and businesses that require an air compressor.

Air compressors can, be a huge plus if you're, let's say you are into, auto-repair, or just plain and simple, you love air compressors.
You never know when an air compressor like this will come handy. There could be a pending winter storm and you just might need the compressor for a flat tire. You could also link it if you're crafty enough, to a generator. The tank size is fair, but not great.
A gem for a compressor like this is you can use air tools. Meaning this has several applications.
Air tools and compressors go hand in hand. I love using air tools. Although I don't have any, I've used them before - and let me just say, you'd want an air compressor and air tools.
We're going to chitchat about the RIDGID 2.5-Gallon Portable Electric Air Compressor.


Oil - free pump delivers long lasting, reliable performance and is low maintenance.

-135 PSI maximum pressure.
-2.5 gallon steel tank.

Tank pressure gauge displays the PSI level:
8 in. never-flat rubber wheels allow you to roll the compressor over rough terrain.
Includes 25 ft. of 1/4 in. polyurethane air hose.

The Good:

It's quite small from other air compressor units. Don't let that get you down or anything.

Has a solid price of $169.00 or less. Not bad at all.

The Bad:

Electric and small in gallon(s).

Overall rating of this product. Including cost, performance, brand. "3.6."

Comparing to other units, go with something a little more money. Let's say $600 should do it.
