I have to admit I've only used it a few times. I am very happy for the price I paid. As some have stated the impact and wrench are not the strongest. What do you expect thrown in for free. I oiled them as recommended. They were not strong enough to break loose my hand tightened lug nuts but after being broken loose it worked great doing the rest of the work. Still much better then doing the whole job with a four way. I'm sure this should last as long as I follow the instructions.
I think this works for my needs. I use it on my projects at the house... cars, lawn mowers, and general fixes. I think they were close on making a great product but some things that kept me from giving it five stars. Very loud... it shakes the house ;-), and it takes a super long time to fill up with air. I would expect a little bit more for the price but I did know going into it that it is not a commercial grade product. The tools that came with it are very cheap and not powerful. For me it works because I don't use it much but for the daily user of air compressor tools I would not recommend.
This compressor has worked well for over two years. I ditched the impact wrench that came with it and bought an Ingersoll Rand and with the combination, I can spin off any bolt. Axle nuts, rusted control arms, you name it. It's a little noisy but it doesn't take much space and it is maintenance free. Be sure to drain the air after use and always drain the last 25lbs from the bottom of the tank.

I purchased this item a couple years ago for home use... Seemed like a nice unit.....HOWEVER, it developed a crack in the welded boss at the bottom, near the drain valve. The crack leaks water and , of course air. Manual says NOT to weld on the tank............. Devilbiss manuf. the tank, and it's obviously a Manuf. defect. Soooo.....I guess it's off to find a new compressor that is manufactured more carefully.
After owning this unit for only a year it started going into thermal overload. Thought maybe I had a bad breaker. So I replaced the breaker. Nothing changed. Called Sears for them to tell me that my warranty expired 2 days ago BUT I could take it to a repair center and PAY to have it fixed. Sorry but when you spend over $300 for a product that has maybe 10 hours on it IT BETTER LAST LONGER THAN A YEAR!!!!! Heck I had a ************** cheapo air compressor for over 10 years and it STILL WORKS!!! I guess Craftsman should change their name to Crapsman because their service and products are ****!
works well with impact gun that comes with compressor. I needed more torque lbs. so I used chart at sears and found out that I needed a 33 gal. to run 710 lbs. or higher
I purchased this 26 Gal on a whim since it was cheap. VERY noisy oil-free compressor. could not hold a conversation in a 2 car garage What it is good for: Tire inflation, air brush (i did a lot), Blow gun, air ratchet, a VERY small projects with higher SCFM tools. (45 seconds). It did not do well with the included Impact wrench, nor a cut off tool or rotary tools. I have had no issues with the unit other than waiting for air and the noise. It functioned as it should for 3 years until i upgraded. Note that if you want a quiet compressor... the black 25 or 27 gallon PRO is a fraction of the noise. and the pump alone is bigger than the pump AND motor on the 26 gallon putting out more air to power air hungry tools.
