Best Value For The Price
After finding overpriced used junk online and at garage sales, I searched thoroughly for a new, compact, portable unit that would met my needs, for about $100-125. I did lots of "homework" and shopping around, and it paid off. I am sure I have put this unit through more abuse in 6 months than most homeowners will in a lifetime. NOTE: There is a HUGE difference between "Piston" type compressors (like this one), vs "Diaphragm" style (like the worthless, slow, noisy ones you plug in a cigarette lighter). Buy a piston compressor like this one. Do NOT buy an "Oil-Free" compressor, they are diaphragm units and you will be disappointed. They take 10-20 minutes to air up a tire, this thing will do it in less than a minute. My store was out of stock, so I ordered it online, and they shipped it to my home for FREE. This unit was in perfect condition out of the box, (I was worried, box was beat-up by freight company). Poured in the included oil, and put it to work. I really like that it came with a hose and accessory kit, (even a roll of teflon tape!), and oil. I bought a $4 quick-change coupler at the auto parts store and put it on the hose, so I can change tools quickly. A GREAT feature is the adjustable pressure regulator, and dual gauges. You don't have to worry about over-inflating anything, just set the pressure you want with a ****. I have used it HARD for the past 6 months, and it is proving to be very durable. It does not have enough capacity to constantly operate heavy-duty "air-hog" tools like die grinders, but with the 3 gallon tank, I just let it catch-up between short work sessions. NOTE: I highly recommend changing the oil after the first hour or two of actual running time. Just like a car engine, the break-in process creates metallic wear particles. That first oil change is the most critical, and in a big way, determines how long your engine (or compressor) will last. You only need a very tiny bottle of compressor oil, (It only holds like 4 Oz). Easy to change with just a pair of pliers or adjustable wrench for the drain plug, just drain it into an empty plastic water or soda bottle. Cheap insurance to ensure a long life. You can see the oil through the sight plug, when it starts to get dark, change it. I have changed mine twice since then, and I've gotten this thing so hot, several times, running almost non-stop for an hour or more at a time, and figured it would die. Nope! I am very satisfied with it. Kind of noisy, (what compressor isn't?). Thinking the air filter inlet could be modified to flow more air, (to improve the performance). Overall glad I took the time to research and select this unit. Highly recommend it, unless you need a larger unit. The best small household compressor you will find, and under $100 on sale. Oh, and it holds air pressure forever! I haven't used it in a month, it's been unplugged, and it still has 100# in the tank.

Cheap but works.
Let me start by saying that - based on the low price - I did not expect a high quality product made in the US, all I wanted was a little compressor to fill tires and maybe use air tools occasionally. I was still a little disappointed, the first issue was the assembly of the handle: It is held in place with two screws, one of which was cross-threaded out of the box. And that was actually the better one of the two, because the other had fallen off the compressor and was loose in the box, with no sign of the washer and lock-washer present on the stuck screw. After filling the compressor with the supplied oil (which was nice - certain discount stores make you buy the oil separately), the compressor fired right up. That's where the next problem started: The rubber feet of the compressor are so hard that they don't absorb any vibrations, so while the motor is running, the compressor moves around the garage as far as permitted by the power cable or any accessories attached. It looked pretty funny, actually, I should have made a video. Finally, the quick-connect for the air seems to be a little bit off, it requires an enormous amount of force to insert the mating connector. But I might replace that anyway, since there is no air shut-off valve installed either. In summary, this is the usual low-quality tool you would expect at a discount store, with a little extra customer service (and warranty), with a couple of fixable problems, but it does work.

Excellent if you get it on discount!

This was on sale for $90 when I bought it and I had a $5 coupon and a $50 gift card from another order Sears messed up from a while back, so I paid $42 tax included for this kit. I basically stole this thing! But even at $90 it's still a good deal, 2.4 SCFM compressors that are of decent to good quality are usually $150+ (and usually with no accessories). Pros: -Does exactly what it says it does -Seems to be well built -Small and compact -Oiled compressor, which means it should last longer than others -Booted up (from empty to full) in 1:20 (1 minute, 20 seconds), which is very quick -Left air in mine for about half a day and it did not leak at all -Comes with oil (although you should change it after your first few uses) Cons: -Hose supplied is very cheap, still usable though for now -It's quite heavy, you'll be surprised based on its dimensions -As another user pointed out, it will in fact bounce around on concrete, so I bought a $3 rubber mat at ********** and that fixed the problem -The accessories included are really only for inflating tires, doesn't even come with a blow gun so you'll likely spend another $15-$20 on more fittings and a blow gun -This was my first oiled compressor and the directions were not very clear on the installation of the air filter. The air filter is in a round metal casing. The casing says on it "push on" with a clockwise arrow, and then vice versa for the off position. The manual says to check the actual air filter (which is inside the casing) every time you start the compressor, so I assumed you had to "push" and turn the casing clockwise to have the filter in the on position. You don't. I think that's just how you get inside of the casing to change the filter, even though no matter how many times I tried, I couldn't get the darn thing open. So maybe I'm just an idiot, but I thought that was a little confusing and I couldn't find documentation anywhere on it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Nice Little Compressor

Working great for me. The component quality seems to be higher than most normal household compressors offered by most stores. The handle design could be changed, it is a little awkward to carry around. It will walk around on a smooth surface like the garage floor. I use it mostly on a plywood top workbench and it hasn't been a issue at all. It fills quickly and is doing exactly what I wanted it to do. I have a larger compressor for power tools, though this will run a brad nail gun with little effort. Thanks Sears.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Coil air hose

I have had an issue in which the plastic air hose came in contact with the cooling fins of the motor. As a result the plastic melted and now has a pin hole sized hole which leaks.

Nice little compressor

This is a very good alternative to a pancake compressor. It was very easy to assemble and use. The tank filled in about 2 minutes. It is perfect for putting air in tires, and i plan to try it with a nail gun, this week. This compressor was priced at. $119. I would recommend this compressor to friends.

3 gal. 135 psi compressor

Got home Labor Day night with my new toy...unboxed it and started assembling. Well built,clean welds,solid. New bolt on handle allows for the 135 psi..1 less weld on the tank gets a 10psi boost..for those that thought the bolt on handle was a cheap move,you just don't understand the gain power! This compressor is quiet..builds pressure fast.Has a regulator that works really well..all it needs is a inline filter and its ready to run some air nailers! I want to thank Bobbi Jo *****,the Sales Associate for working with me on this purchase. She went above and beyond to get my problem taken care of. Thanks.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Solid

This is a solid compressor for the money. The plastic hose and attachments are not very high quality, but it's what I expected. The compressor does what it's supposed to do.

bought in 2004, still going strong

I bought this in 2004 and it has been a great compressor: First the bad: It's loud, it's heavy, but they probably all are. The good - filling up care tires, bike tires, footballs, etc, it's a breeze. Perfect for light to medium duty jobs too - nailing trim, fences, other honey do's that you need a nail gun for. One minor problem - I have an older house with older wiring. If I am running a lot of electricity through a circuit and the compressor kicks on sometimes it does not get enough power, runs improperly (like 1/4 speed) and eventually kicks off. You may think the compressor is broken, but it's not. Just find a different plug and try that.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good unit for small jobs

This is an excellent compressor for small jobs. While it has the power to inflate truck tires, this is an excellent unit for smaller jobs, just as nail guns, and inflating ATV and tractor tires.It's easy to move around.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

received item damaged

When my son received his birthday present, it was damaged. I know it wasn't Sears fault, probably the UPS man was rough with it.
