Ryobi has come out with a new 18V One+ cordless air compressor, model P739.
The new Ryobi cordless air compressor is said to be perfect for roadside tire inflation, or for use with pneumatic finish nailers.
It delivers 120 PSI max, and has a 1 gallon air tank.
Additional features include a push-t-connect quick coupler, for easy one-hand operation, a locking regulator for keeping the pressure set at the desired PSI, a metal air hose wrap for on-board storage, and a rubber overmolded handle for greater user comfort.
Ryobi says that it can inflate a car tire from 0 to 35 PSI in 80 seconds, and it can inflate up to 9 car tires per charge when used with a 4.0Ah (P108) Li-ion battery.
There’s a tank drain valve (as expected), and clearly marked tank and outlet pressure gauges.
Price: $99 for the bare tool (you’ll need a separate battery and charger)
Update: The price was $129 as of 2/27/2019, and there is a new kit option for $158.
This new Ryobi cordless 1 gallon portable air compressor is less expensive than those other options, but its feature set doesn’t look to be compromised.
Check out the large feet on the bottom of the unit! Air compressors are typically noisy, and they vibrate a whole lot. Small feet can exacerbate things.
In this image you can also see the quarter-turn drain valve.
If you ask me, this has the potential to be a winner. If it performs as well as it looks on paper, it’ll be a great home workshop addition for Ryobi 18V One+ users.
One thing to keep in mind is that it is a 1 gallon compressor. Meaning, don’t expect it to run a 1/2″ impact wrench. The Ridgid, also a 1 gallon cordless compressor, is a great performer when paired with smaller air nailers, and so I’d expect the same from this one.
