I had a rol-air in the past-the one that is the 13 CFM model. This ridgid does not compare. I have a roofing crew and have run a framing crew. This barely keeps up with 3 roofing guns and would be useless with 2 framing guns. It runs great, but I have doubts about the actual SCFM it can produce. I have owned it for 3 years and have run it for 2 seasons now without any incident, but for a pro, you will find it a little slow. If your couplings get the least sloppy so you lose a little air, it wont keep up with even 2 roofing guns. I remember my rolair keeping up with 4 good framers, and what seemed to be 10 miles of hose, 20 couplings and they were all sloppy and hissing. I hope whoever stole my rolair compressor understands how nice it is!

Update: 3 years later-6 seasons old! I will say that I had initial issues, and concerns, but I just re-read my initial review and I dont feel the same way anymore. This thing has been a solid performer and despite it not being the fastest does just fine.

Bought this compressor as a backup air source for my auto shop in the event of a power failure. It runs smoothly and has great air output. Keep in mind, it is filling 2 large electric air compressor tanks, so capacity is no issue for me. I have also used it for spraying stain and it keeps up with my spray gun no problem.
