I think the "with" in the second sentence is redundant but both have the same meaning and are correct.

Yes, these have the same meaning.

YES, THEY HAVE.
I’d say that phrasal verbs are slightly more informal.
• The firemen extinguished the fire. (Very formal)
• The firemen put out the fire. (Neutral-Informal)

Those sentences mean the same and are both grammatically correct and perfectly normal.
