        Thanks, Josh, glad to see it listed. I bought one of the first ones - performs quite well.

          Looks sweet. I like the two hose hook-up and have always loved the quality fittings ridgid puts on their air tools. Kinda wish I didn't have a perfectly good senco 1 gallon. How much does it weigh, I didn't see it in the specs?

            I'd put it right around 30 to 40 lbs, max. Yes, the fittings are quite nice - when there is nothing connected, the fittings stay in a ready position, so that when you insert a hose connection, they automatically snap on and lock. Pretty cool - a feature that I didn't have on my previous, 20-year-old, father-to-son handed down old compressor.

              I purchased one of these several weeks ago, they are the best! Quiet, easy to carry, easy to work with.

                Ah well. Never shop after you have bought I guess. Someday...

                  I scored one this week for $49!! Only one in the store, and no other stores have it yet. It really is light and super-quiet.

                              just picked one up. The cashier scanned it and thought I switched the sticker--too cheap. He went and got one of his buddies to ask him, who agreed, too cheap. They went to get the old timer from the tool department and when he started scratching his head I almost lost it. After standing there for 15 minutes while they kept getting people who didn't know anything I told them to get a manager, that I knew it was $49 because I read it on the internet and called their store and that's why I came in.

                              Well, that starts the whole "our online prices are different from our in store prices--that explains everything, you must have looked at the online price!"

                              Deep breath--"well, no, it doesn't. You started this whole debacle because it SCANNED at $49 and you didn't believe your computer. I am not disputing your computer, you are. Please get somebody who either knows, or can authorize this price!"

                              "okay be patient!"


                              --whispering to each other "he doesn't know that our online prices are different--that explains it" nods all around.

                              Oh well, after all that I got the thing for $49. I worked for it though!
