ecooke, is that the ridgid compressor that has the tool box for guns attached as well as a hose reel, how do you find it. the one compaint i heard about from a buddy whos at the hd sayed they get alot of them back because of the plastic handles. other than that how is it? how loud is the actual compressor im getting tired of the lawn mower engine on my porter cable, id like to have something quiter for trim work when working on reno's where the homeowner is still in the house, as i have to run 150' of hose so i can keep the noisy little pig outside

good eye.. yes that is the rigid compressor.... I think its a decent unit, it is very small and light.. I have zero complaints about it so far, it handles my finish nailers and brad nailers just fine.. I have done a little bit of framing and it runs more, but i guess that is to be expected. The main reason i bought it was because it was small and has the storage on top... This in the only rigid tool i am ok with, i have never had good luck with that brand... If i get a year out of this i will be happy... It is fairly quiet, not too loud... my last compressor was a bostich 3 horse, this is definitley quieter.... but not super quiet like the little senco trim compressors... if you already have a larger compressor, i would recommend the tiny senco, or the PC pancake comps. they are much quieter and lighter than this...

Ecooke,
Really nice trailer. What kind of plywood & boards did you use? It looks like some quality wood?

Mitchell,
great setup. What kind of lighting are you using? It look plenty bright in there.

Mitchell- what size of trailer is that? 20'? it Doesn't seem to end.
Anyways, I'm definitely green with envy now.
I love the level storage.

Re: Job Site Trailers, Show Off Your Set Ups!


I really appreciate seeing different trailer setups since I'm in the midst of designing a new rig for my cube van. The big problem I have is that I'm moving out of my shop to a smaller location so my van is now my workshop. Trouble is I have minimum 20 boxes/rolls of wire along with 12/10/6/5/2/2 foot ladders which I refuse to mount outside since I hate cleaning them before bringing them into finished homes. After you factor in a good stock of a variety of steel strut and conduit there isnt a heck of a lot of room left in my 16 foot "wearhouse on wheels".

I'l post pics onece my construction is complete, keep the pics comming.
