I purchased the new aluminum compressor in April based on Ridgid's name and value. The first one leaked air so bad I took it back to Home Depot. The second one worked great with my new Ridgid finish nail pneumatic gun. By the time I cut and nailed 54' of oak baseboard and 54" of oak chair rail it failed to start and recharge. Since 30 days had elapsed Home Depot refused to take it back. I then drove one hour to a Ridgid authorized repair center. The compressor piston seized up and the compressor unit will need to be replaced. It's been 40 days now and still not repaired. The shop said the part is still on back order, could be two more weeks, could be two more months. This is sad, I now rent when I need one, how can they market an all new compressor with no parts available. I guess my repair parts are somewhere between China and Ohio. I hope Ridgid quality control tracks warranty jobs and costs to effect quality control at the manufacturing site.
No announcement yet.
