The name Ridgid is synonymous with hand tools, air tools, and the air compressors to power those Ridgid air tools. Ridgid air compressors are made available at at a number of big-box stores around the nation and also at a number of specialty industrial outlets, depending on where you are located.

Ridgid air compressors are also available for on-line purchase. The Ridge Tool Company, owner of the Ridgid brand, is themselves owned by the Emerson Group.

While this page is your Ridgid air compressor-users forum, the logical first source for information about Ridgid compressors is, of course, Ridgid themselves.
