This deal beats the 2nd deal ($74.66) listed earlier by $1.67.

I bought this on the 1st deal for $74.70 and it works great. I ordered it on a Sunday and it was delivered to my house by UPS in under 48 hours. It was brand new in a sealed retail box in perfect condition.

Both are solid units though the Ridgid is reviewed slightly better. Ridgid regular price is usually $30 more than Porter Cable. Advantages of Ridgid are that it has 3 year warranty (PC 1 year) and has a quarter turn drain valve (PC has a screw Schrader drain valve which can be a pain to open under pressure). Ridgid is rated 1.5hp vs PC's 0.8hp but it doesn't seem to make a practical difference. SCFM pretty much the same - 2.6scfm at 90psi.

I certainly wouldn't claim all of these Stanley Black and Decker compressors are the same but at least these Bostitch, PC and DeWalt models appear to be all but identical.

Note that the DeWalt does have a different pressure switch and a few other difference vs the other two. The pump motor assemblies appear to be the same across the line. The check valve appears different on the DeWalt. It's also worth noting that at least Bostitch has more than 1 6 gallon pancake compressor.

Edit: looking a bit more, the DeWalt's check valve is labeled "Check valve w/muffler". That could explain a small noise level difference.

Quote from jeff34270 :
A. Are you just trying to distract from the fact that they're all about 30lbs?

B. The fact that there's unexplained asterisks leads to the likely possibility that the measurements were taken differently.

C. A 10% larger fuel tank does not make a car more efficient.

As I've maintained all along, there are some differences between the four brands. I think they're pretty minor differences, you think they're pretty major.
A. "About the same" and "same as" aren't the same. Smilie

B. Proof that the asterisks would indicate such a thing? There's probably a footer with the product specs that explain them.

C.Bob and Sally are both driving their cars to their uncle's ice cream shop that is precisely 1100 miles away. They will be both driving down the highway nonstop with the cruise control set to 60 mph. Bob's car will do 110 miles on a tank of case, and Sally's will go 100. They will each spend approximately 10 minutes exiting the highway for gas each time they need to fill up. Who will arrive to their uncle's ice cream shop first? Why did you pick your answer?

This is a non-issue. If the tank rusts through it will form a pin hole leak first. Once the tank starts to leak like that it's done. Don't repair it and it won't pop.
No, that's not what will happen. Lucky if it does.

Just one example. plenty of other videos where a non-leaking compressor as you noted has exploded.

Drain the moisture out of the tank on a regular basis, as they rust from the inside out.... and the tank will last several decades. The chance of a tank exploding is about as likely as being struck by lightning, but rather they develop pin hole leaks.
I definitely do. Yes they can last a long time with care and maintenance. You are still constantly stressing them and age is a factor. See my post above for just one example of a tank that did explode. If you get a pinhole leak, great, lucky.

All this stuff is not made to the highest standards anymore and we know it. Comparing these new items to decades old material is a bit naive. I mean Harbor Freight had to recall simple car jack stands and their replacements TWICE (second recall where the fixed versions).

All I am saying is $70 every 10+ years is probably not a bad idea vs a 5-10X expensive tank you try to stretch out your lifespan that can still fail catastrophically.

That is the trouble with the internet... one tank explodes out of millions sold and suddenly, they all will.

'3 generations of racing' must not be very good at it, because I see nothing but a bunch of junk in that filthy shop. If one can't sweep the floor once in awhile, I doubt if that junk compressor that allegedly required a drain valve to be installed was maintained.

===========
Personally, I don't care for the OP oiless compressors that do not have a crankcase with oil. They have their place, but once the Teflon wears off the dry bearings, once the rubber ring on the piston wears down, they are throwaway compressors. If you use an oiless compressor regularly, 10 years of longevity is unlikely without a rebuild. But, they are cheap.

Actually "leak before break" is a real thing and is how these units are designed. Bursting tanks are likely those that were spot welded when they started to leak or in at least one case I'm aware of, an oil seal problem in the pump resulted in an oil-air mix in the intake tube. That mix was ignited by pressure and temperature and resulted in a tank burst.

The fact is, if you don't fix the tank once a leak starts the odds of a blow out are not worth worrying about (assuming the tank mfg is reputable - PC like is).

It's not just one blowout. You just said it yourselves, you know what you are doing, others don't, that leads to a blow out. If you think the average person buying a compressor in this price point has a pristine garage you are dreaming. Why would we need that to have a compressor that won't blow up? Most people don't change their oil regularly or check their tire pressure, but air compressor maintenance is where we all shine?

Lol come on, you have to see that's ridiculous. $70 every 10 years and you don't deal with oil, fear of explosion, and having the motor quit on you when you need it. Just normal drain after use.

I also like you claim they will all last decades, but then call his specific compressor junk lol. Yep all are good to go for decades, even this oil free one you said would need a rebuild quickly, but their specific compressor is junk lol. Must not be mass produced and was hand forged, yep that's the problem lmao.

For certain, no matter how many laws are created, how much 'safety' oversight is afforded, how many pages in the owner's manual that refer to owner's safety, it remains impossible to manufacture and claim whatever is idiot proof.... Smilie

Personally, I have been at this a long time, have been in countless shops and not once, has anyone claimed to have had a compressor tank blown.... but everyone has heard about it.

What I have seen blown after the fact, is people using pvc pipe as air supply lines... Schedule 80 can withstand a lot of air pressure when new and perfectly installed, but deteriorates with age. That 10 year number is about right for a loud bang.

Me, I am liberal... buy whatever you want, use anyway you want, as long as your actions do not trespass on me. If you are worried about the tank, buy a new one every five years... it keeps the economy going.... lol ..... I just gave away a 40 year old compressor that works fine.
