Ridgid Air Compressor – #THDProSpective


Ridgid cordless air compressor

I have heard many mixed thoughts about the concept of a cordless air compressor.   Some love the idea and couldn’t wait to get one. They feel the convenience is perfect for their needs. Others say, “It’s a waste. If you have to have a hose you may as well just have a cord too and not have to worry about batteries.”

  Ridgid was the first to offer an actual cordless jobsite compressor and I think they did a great job with it. It is 1 gal. With a max pressure of 120PSI.  It runs on one or two 18v batteries. I like the nice rubber feet. I also like that it is fairly quiet. The handle is nicely placed for balance. Many compressors will hit you in the legs when carried.  This one is one of the nicest ones to carry. The drain is a nice and easy  1/4 turn valve.  

  BSince it’s so easy to move, you may find yourself using it with a shorter hose and moving it around much more than a normal compressor. To me it makes sense. 

  Cordless nailers are all the rage these days. They are better than ever but there are very few good cordless 23GA pinners.  There are no cordless 21GA pinners that I know of. With the 18v Ridgid compressor I can keep using my cordless guns and still have a high quality pinner that moves around with me. This is especially nice when moving from room to room installing casing or other applied moldings. The best cordless nail guns still fall short of the best pneumatics in the same class. The cordless guns are very close in general performance but they are still much larger and can’t match the power of a good pneumatic with full length nails. 

Check it out at The Home Depot

  With the Ridgid you can be cordless without being stuck to any particular brand. You can use a Hitachi 15 ga. Along with a senco 18 ga. a Cadex 21 ga. and a grex 23 ga. or any combo you own.

  I have taken it on a few cabinet and trim installs and I must say I am very pleased with how it works. I have two of the small 1 gallon corded  Senco compressors and as far as I’m concerned they will be gathering a lot of dust after having this Ridgid. 


  From an empty tank the Ridgid only takes about 55 seconds to completely fill.  It takes about 23 seconds to recover after kicking on when the pressure reaches around 87 PSI. This is very acceptable especially since it is so quiet. With my senco 15 ga finish nailer I can get about 6 shots before it kicks on. With my 18 ga. It can do about 11 shots and my Cadex 21 and 23 Ga. guns will do 16 shots. My Everwynn 21 and 23 ga guns will do 20 each. 

    Is it possible to use it with a framing gun? I  tried it with my Hitachi and Paslode framing guns. I got 5 shots each before it refilled.  This was actually very surprising because I only got six out of my 15 gauge finish nailer  and these framers are much larger and more powerful.   If you have just a few nails to place here and there this Ridgid could be a viable option.  You can get about 10 shots before they stop driving flush in solid framing lumber.  Wait a few seconds while the tank tops off and you can shoot a few more. Whether or not this is practical for you depends on your individual needs. 

  With two 5.0 batteries you can get about 90 recoveries.  That is good for hundreds of shots with any application. With an Everwyn 21 or 23 ga pinner it’s upwards of 1,800. 

 This portable cordless air compressor exceeded my expectations in every way. I will definitely keep it in my regular finish arsenal. It won’t keep up with  a large corded one does but it sure does a lot of things very well and I could see this fitting well into many different situations. Check one out for yourself to see if it’s right for you.

  • Dual-power draw allows the compressor to run on both 1 or 2 batteries
  • Brushless motor technology for superior power and runtime
  • 1 Gal. tank portable size for job site mobility
  • Locking regulator holds knob in place to prevent unwanted pressure changes
  • Universal push-to-connect quick coupler accepts both 1/4 in. automotive and industrial plugs with easy single-hand connection
  • 1/4 in. turn ball valve tank drain – drain tanks quickly with one easy turn
  • 120 maximum PSI provides ideal pressure for an extended range of work (for finish, trim, and inflation applications)
  • Powerful enough to drive 2.5 in. nails flush into the toughest surfaces
  • Hose wrap for efficient hose storage management

  • What I would change. 
  • Make the tank a little larger. 
  • Make it a little quieter

    Great write up. I could see using this a lot as I use just about every type of nailer from framing, staplers, and finishing. Even using a roofing gun for small patch jobs. I actually had to patch a roof after the chimney was removed and there was one outlet on site for power and it was maxed out.

    Everything is gonna be on one or two 9aH batteries soon. Might as well embrace it. The price has come down somewhat but my theory is buy the batteries then figure out what you want to sell off and buy cordless. I really want the chop saw but man a compressor on batteries, I’m all about it as long as it has a reasonable battery life.

    Oh my, how tool innovation has advanced. Not just for people using the tools for a living, but also for regular homeowners. The convenience of current battery technology is viable enough to make tools with corded power performance!

    This compressor is no exception. It would be so nice because of its compactness and lightness with the freedom of being cordless. I get paranoid working in Chicago that my tools are going to get stolen, it’d be nice having my tools near me where I can keep my eyes on them, instead of far away near an power receptacle. And at the same time, this would be so nice to have when I’m out on a RV road trip in case I need to fill up a tire or inflate my kids’ inflatable water toys. This compressor sounds perfectly situated for both work and off-work environment.

    Your review of this compressor hits almost all of my checklist in my requirements of a compressor. However, being that it’s cordless, I can compromise on somethings, such as capacity, so this compressor seems perfect for me.

    Nice find, @toolpig!

    This would be nice to have since you say it is so quiet and my tiny apartment garage can only hold so many tools. It would also add a couple more awesome batteries to my other Ridgid tools and they are coming out with 6.0 and 9.0 batteries soon and you can probably get way better performance with the bigger batteries.

    Looks great, seems like a great tool to fill the void in the cordless nailing performance. 5 years I’d say and the battery nailers should be even across the board with the pneumatics. Would love one of these while we wait and see a single brand fail to produce a complete range of succesful nailers.

  168. Hvac_artisan 10/08/2017 at 5:07 PM - Reply

    I would use that compressor for nailing up sheetmetal joist panning for return airs on new construction jobs. It’s not high volume but shorter bursts of use so I think that compressor would probably work great. In hvac the only other significant time I use a compressor is to pressurize or blow out pex lines for boilers, hydronic or winterizing lake homes.
