  • New RIDGID 2.5 gallon aluminum compressor--$49 at HD!!!

    This was discussed in the original thread announcing this compressor, but I thought this deal deserved it's own thread so nobody misses out on this! I just bought one and even the cashier thought it was a mistake.

    Get it while the gettin is good!

                I'm not sure what's going on. When I called my local Home Depot he said he couldn't even find them in the computer. When I mentioned you guys(West Coasters) getting ahold of them, he brushed that off by saying that you guys are in a different buying zone or something of the sort.

                He then told me another Home Depot near by had a 2.5 Gallon Ignersoll Rand for $49. I went to the Home Depot, and what do you know, there's the Ridgid 2.5 Gallon Aluminum Compressor. A store worker than ran the number, and it came up as $49. I bought one, and am thinking about going back for another.

                  Whitey's- The compressor for $299 is the 5 Gallon one, and we're talking about the 2.5 Gallon compressor.

                      I don't need one or have any idea what to use it for but I went out this morning and bought one anyways

                      The model # is OF25135A

                      The Home Depot SKU # is 670-549

                      Called my closest HD and of course they said: not a valid SKU...lies!!

                      I drive right past 2 closer Home Depots to a 3rd. that NOBODY goes to in Hybla Valley, Va. My instincts paid off. None on display near the compressors 3 isles over, above the lumber rack up high I spy 4 just hiding there

                      Tool guy says: "Dude, the Husky 1.5 gallon (on prominant display) is a way better buy" But I say: "I'm not your 'dude' and you're wrong, it's $100 bucks with 1 year warranty. Ridgid is $50 bucks with 3 year warranty"

                      20 minute wait to get a forklift to reach them

                      When I go to check out she looks at the box, looks back at the screen, looks back at the box and shakes her head no Picks up the phone and brings her manager over to approve the sale.

                      I run across the parking lot like I just stole this thing

                      Should of had a weapon and wearing a ski mask at this price

                        I got one, my dad got one, and I got one for Ben(Gear Junkie) since they didn't have any near him.

                          I tried a 50 mile radius around me. Zero in stock. I didn't really need another air compressor, but for $49 why not.

                            But see the problem is, well in my area atleast is they're not showing them in stock, when they have them.

                              What is the marketing stragety is for this thing (if there is even one)

                              With the Home Depot SKU number in hand they can't seem to tell me if any are in stock or how much they are. Only when I found it myself and pointed to it did someone know it was there

                              What's worse?
                              HD hiding these away from the consumers and not having a clue about what is taking up space on their shelves or Ridgid giving these compressors away at cost

                              I think I'll do what Aaron did and go back to buy the last 3

                              Put them up on Ebay in a few months. $99.00 + shipping
