Portable Compressor | Ridgid 8


Portable Compressor | Ridgid 8

December 14, 2015
This article first appeared in the PB December 2015 issue of Pro Builder.

The portable Ridgid 8-Gallon Gas-Powered Air Compressor has a removable tank so users can separate it from the unit while still remaining connected via an air hose. In addition, the zero-gravity, low-profile design makes it easy to transport and store, and integrated slide rails allow the unit to easily roll down a truck tailgate, while roll bars offer protection. The compressor has cast-iron pump cylinders, and two quick couplers and a locking regulator knob for consistent airflow. The ball-valve tank drains make draining simple, and the compressor’s 10-inch wheels make it easy to maneuver.
