  • Mobile Air or Aluminum stack compressor?

    I currently have a Ridgid 2.5gal aluminum compressor, however after a trip to my local HD my eyes drifted to a Ridgid Mobile Air unit.

    I noticed that my Aluminum unit is rated at 13.5amp 1.9scfm@90 while the Mobile Air is rated at 9.6amp 2.3scfm@90. I thought that the higher the amps the more true HP a unit has, thus more output power. Both units are 2.5gal

    I currently run a Hitachi 18g and Grex 23g pinner off my aluminum unit.
    I was wondering if I should get rid of my current compressor and opt for the mobile air unit or stick to what I have.

    Errrh. If it works for you, why change? I have that same 2.5 gal twin-stack Ridgid aluminum compressor, and it works great for my needs.

    Is there a real major reason why you'd need to try to gain 0.4 scfm (~20%) more air volume/flow?

      I just like the idea of the hose reel/box

        Okay, granted.

        The MobileAir still has dual connectors, so it's still beneficial.

        Just don't let the Mrs. know.

          the wheels are the attraction for me. Wish the 4.5 gallon had wheels.

            Build a simple cart for the compressor.
