After watching this video of the new RIDGID Gen5X - 1 Gal. 18V Air Compressor review by Workshop Addict, I can't help but to "compare" it to how an EGO 56V Air Compressor would be?  I have asked for this (like many others before & after me), that EGO should consider making one of these tools soon ... imagine the "many" possibilities & productivity we can have with this, and our "existing" line ups of EGO batteries (2.0Ah, 2.5Ah, 4.0Ah, 5.0Ah and 7.5Ah).  Common EGO, you can do it .... :-)

Yep, a "Peak Power" version that could run on two batteries would be awesome!

Very much agree.  I carry a big, heavy, super amp draw (circuit blowing) compressor with me racing.  If I could replace this with a battery unit, I would in a heartbeat, even if I need to charge batteries a couple times a day.

Duly noted, David. Duly noted, indeed.
