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.
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.
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.
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.
This is my first serious compressor. My only other air compressor was an old Black & Decker unit that was for inflating balls. It wouldn't do tires. I use this compressor to keep air in the car tires, inflate soccer balls, blow out air purifiers, clean off tools and other such uses. I have not used it to power air tools yet. The compressor works great without any issues and I use it several times a month. My only suggestion is if you were needing a compressor for large projects such as installing floors or lots of air tool usage you might want a larger more powerful motor and larger tank so the compressor wouldn't be running all the time.
this compressor is the right size for a lady to use and easy to use. I recenty lost my husband, and I found I needed one for pumping up tires etc and it was on sale for the right price.
I purchased this small compressor (my second one) because it is much more convenient for small or tasks of short duration as compared to my 30 gallon upright compressors. I have 2 of each size because I use one set at home and one on my small goat ranch. Obviously lugging this small compressor to where its needed as well at the time it takes for the charge up time is convenient for the smaller tasks ie tire inflation, cleaning yard tools etc. Unpacking and setting this small compressor up for use is simple and takes a minimum amount of time. All of the necessary parts and the instructions on "how to" are easy to understand with several diagrams/pictures to clarify and emphasize important saftey precautions. My only suggestion would be to add 2 wheels and a handle to push or pull the compressor since I believe it weighs 50 lbs. or more. The price is reasonable and if you have member points it is that much more economical
I bought the compressor and within a year of very infrequent usage the compressor will no longer fully pressurize the tank. It should get to 135PSI but it will only get to 55PSI and runs continuously to keep up. Very disappointed in this product.
I bought this compressor on june 20 th and on july 1 I returned it because it started leaking somewhere and wouldn't stay full without constantly running. Today at midnight the replacement one I got is doing it right where the unit joins to the tank and all I was doing was blowing off some tools that covered in saw dust. This thing is junk.
