Do we know what the retail cost of these will be?

@ben_r_ we were taking preorders at $499 for the 1hp, $639 for the 1-1/2hp.

They were supposed to shop last month, but there have been at least four delays on this project so far.

Might make a nice Xmas gift.


Next year  [tongue]

Jamie responded to my email inquiry for an update.

He said the latest information is that they will be delivered to Cadex at the end of October from their manufacturer.

Nope, I gave up waiting and got a very nice, much more powerful, with a larger tank, cheaper, super quiet and very light weight California Air Tools compressor and haven't looked back.

Hey Shane , what is Caddx saying is responsible for all the delays?

Not only are they numerous, the length of them is substantial too. 

Are these things getting rushed to market as soon as they can be built or are there actual production models being tested out in the real world ?

I would have to defer to @CadexJamie to comment on the reason for delays and what steps are being done prior to introduction to the market.

Latest I have seen is their Instagram post that these would be available in September.

But I have not been contacted by Cadex about their availability yet.

I have no affiliation with Cadex, and will in all likelihood probably not purchase their new compressor, however, introducing new product into the marketplace is not an easy task, especially if you want to do due diligence and ensure the newly released product will perform to the customer's expectation level.

I understand that once a new product is announced, everyone wants to purchase it, however, even after the announcement, there will still be some alpha and beta testing of the product, and any issues found in the initial testing phases will still need to be addressed from an engineering/manufacturing/quality analysis view point. This stuff all takes time...if it was simple everyone in the world would be producing salable product.

My thought process is that it's better to have product delivered late that WORKS, than product that's delivered on time that FAILS.

Hmmmmm......Kapex just crossed my mind....

Coming from a manufacturing family, I understand what it takes to get a widget into the hands of a buyer.

What I cannot stand though is marketing with their glass half full mentality telling everyone the widget will go on sale next March, then in May telling everyone it will be Q3 only to say on Xmas eve it'll be next year.   Then nothing , then we have a big splash saying it's finally here , you can have one in Sept., I'm looking at one right now.  And six weeks later what do we have ........................

I saw better vaporware delivery times during the .com bubble days.
