Ridgid Cordless Compressor R0230

The sleeping giant is at it again, this time with a pretty cool idea that is sure to impress the mass.  Ridgid launched a new cordless compressor.  Yes, you hear that right.  Ridgid has a cordless compressor.  The R0230 runs off of either (1) 18V battery or (2) 18V batteries.  Seriously how cool is that?

When I first received the inflator, I have to admit I was a little disappointed.  Kobalt has an awesome 24V battery platform on the market, why didn’t they incorporate that battery platform into this tool, making it more...

Husky Compressor Review

What comes to your mind when you hear Husky?  No, I am not talking about the dog, I am talking about the tool brand.  I can’t say for sure, but if you ask someone, I am pretty sure they will describe Husky as a brand sold at The Home Depot, that is inexpensive and designed for the homeowner.   At least that’s how I think of the brand.  Recently we were out in New York and had a chance to visit with Husky and some other brands.  While we were looking at the Husky products, this compressor caught my...
