Ridgid dual 18v compressor FYI

Postby TwinStick » Tue Jul 04, 2017 5:07 pm

So, yesterday we were in HDepot & I saw this compressor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2OgnJZEqPCo It was $199. I was thinking I may save a little today with my veteran's card. Today website says Reg $298, on sale for $239. I have not physically gone to HD today, to see if they marked it up ! :angry:

Upon further review, the more expensive one comes with an upgrade kit (1 small battery & a charger). I did not catch that first time i read it-sorry.
2008 Red QC PW G56. No lift yet, stock size tires. It pulls a 2016 Starcraft AR One Extreme, 3500 lbs.
Load Pro 35 helper springs. 2015 A.R.E. MX Series custom cap. PCP front diff cover protector. Mag-Hytec 6 qt rear diff cover. K&N replacement air filter only. Dual grounded throttle body. Winch TPC bypass. Fab Four rear bumper. DURA BAK lined rocker protection. And a bunch of new front end stuff.

G-56 Gear ratios: 1st) 6.29:1 2nd) 3.48:1 3rd) 2.10:1 4th) 1.38:1 5th) 1.0:1 6th) 0.79:1 Rev 6.29:1 --- = 78.01613:1 Crawl Ratio
-------------------------5.94:1--------3.28:1-------1.98:1-------1.31:1-------1.0:1-------0.74:1-----5.42:1 ---- = 73.675:1
545RFE----------------3.0:1---------1.67:1--------1.0:1--------0.75:1-------0.67:1------------------3.0:1 -------=37.21:1

2013+ 32.47 crawl ratio...............Can you see the trend ??????????????

What's the CFM rating? Pretty slick otherwise! This looks to be the closest thing to the warn vct series that was discontinued.

Nah, not even close to the Warn, i think 2cfm. But still, I am already invested in the Ridgid 18v stuff & have the batteries. I think it may serve my purpose & is easily moved from 1 vehicle to another. I also already have 3 chargers, so both vehicles have the ability to recharge the 18v batteries.

Edit: 1.0 scfm @ 90 psi & 1.4 scfm @ 40 psi. Basically an inflater . http://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-1-Gal ... /300507507

If I recall, that new Ridgid compressor uses two batteries. I have a small 18v inflator and it uses a LOT of juice to air up tires, so I only use it at home when I want to top off or equalize tires. My PW has one of the old Warn big single cylinder compressors hard mounted as my OBA, and it puts out 12cfm free air flow. It's the next best thing to an Oasis.

Yup, they should make them again, both of them (the single & the dual).
