Craftsman 3 Gal. Oil Lube Air Compressor Makes The Job Quick and Easy
This Craftsman 3 gal. oil lube air compressor with 3 pc. accessory kit does more than keep your car tires properly inflated - although it does that really well. It also makes short work of filling bike tires, basketballs, air mattresses, and more. You'll be your kids' hero when you have their bouncy house ready for bouncing in no time flat. And if you're a household repair do-it-yourselfer, this compressor operates pneumatic tools, like nail guns, paint sprayers, and air ratchets with equal ease.
Your Craftsman 3 gal. oil lube air compressor is small but tough. The housing material is steel for a long life. It has a 1.0 HP direct drive motor with a maximum operating pressure of 135 psi and a piston style pump. It weighs just 47 lbs., so it's easy to move to wherever you need it. Your PURchase includes a small bottle of compressor oil to get you started and a 25-foot coil hose. You also get an accessory kit with a ball tire chuck, male plug and seal tape. This thing's almost ready to go right out of the box-just add oil.

I just brought this home and set it up. I was impressed with the build quality, for the price. Setup instructions could be clearer, however. For instance, there's no heads-up that the required/supplied oil fills only a third of the bottle it comes in (3 oz in an 8 oz bottle). Also, there are scant instructions on the use of the Regulator Valve; you'd think with TWO provided gauges they'd tell you how to read them and/or how they're connected operationally to the Regulator. IMPORTANT: if you follow their instructed shut-down procedure, you could get hurt going first for the condensation drain plug-- they should have told you to relieve ALL the built-up air pressure first, probably done best and quickest by pulling the ring on the tank safety valve. And they don't explain why they want you also to "set the outlet pressure to zero on the Regulator" after every use. Must be their lawyers talking (most of the manual, in fact, betrays heavy legal hands). And as to checking the air filter before every use, forget that; it takes a strong hand to uncap the filter's housing, and if you're like me, you're going to do it a lot less often because of its difficult-to-manage design. Me thinks the engineers designed the compressor (quite nicely for its likely use), then turned over the manual-writing to non-tool-using folks, who in turn passed it on to pinstriped lawyers. The manual should have taken another lap back around the track before being released. Lastly, no surprise, the compressor is loud. They tell you to wear ear protection when draining the tank afterwards. but not during use. Go figure.

Purchased this air compressor for $89 and it has been used several times. Mainly filling tires and it is quick and does the job.

I purchased this air compressor to replace an older Sears 12 Gallon air compressor that I purchased12 years ago (when Sears quality was higher). I worried some because this one is built is China and subject to the typical "China junk rule" (CJR) I will use it for airing up auto tires, general shop cleanup where compressed air is idea, cleaning filters, etc. For these types of jobs, this compressor should perform well. For bigger jobs, such as air tools, you should really purchase one with a larger tank and a larger motor (this one is 1 HP, my old 12 gallon air compressor was 2 HP). Now the pros; (1) Good value (~ $100 after tax) (2) Mine tend to hold air reasonably well. But because of the CJR, you should test yours. Fill it up with air, turn it off, and note the air pressure reading. Make note of this and check back in 24 hours. It may drop 5-10 LBs but no more. I'll test mine and try to report back later. (3) Portability (4) Load, but tolerable (5) Oil lubricated (6) Oil and air hose are supplied (7) Sears parts for repair are typically available Now the cons; (1) CJR may bite you (mine, so far, avoided this) (2) Direct drive, but probably ok. I prefer belt drives. (3) Motor is a little small. Owners manual states it is only a 50% duty cycle which means the motor should only be allowed to run 30 minutes in one hour. (4) You should purchase a 3 year warranty (which means the effective price goes up) because of the CJR could bite you within 3 years. (5) Supporting China by buying their junk and funding their economy instead of ours. And remember to; (1) Drain the water from the tank as recommended by the owners manual. (2) Keep up with the oil (check and change). First oil change is the most important and do it early. (3) Keep the air filters clean. Good luck! The Max
I've had my eye on this compressor for several years - the Black Friday specials were very good this year and i got one at Kmart for $79. I had no problem assembling and it seems to run fine. The hose is a little on the cheap side but there are plenty of deals on rubber or polyurethane hoses to replace it. I have a Craftsman Professional pancake compressor and an upright in the garage for heavier work but this one is easier to hall around for filling up tires and blowing away shop dust. If it holds up like my other two this will be a great little compressor.
