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.

Great little compressor

I've had it for about two weeks now. It's a nice unit. Not too loud. Small tank, so it has to refill pretty often, but I was expecting that. I had an issue with the bolts for the handle, like a few other people have talked about. It actually looks like they used the wrong nut bolt combination. I had to file down one area on one of the bolts in order to get it back on. The unit lost a star just because I think it's ridiculous that more than one person has an issue like this. And to top it off....Why are the bolts tightened all the way in the first place. But I guess since that is all I have to complain about so far, then I must be pretty happy.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Compressor!

This compressor is small and light enough to take to the job you are doing. It's quiet and easy to use. It easily keeps up with a nail gun at 100PSI. The handle is positioned for easy carry and the rubber feet allow you to use it just about anywhere from the basement to the roof.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

good so far

I have only used it a couple of times, and so far, there has been no problems. Everything went together easily, with the exception of the handle, which was a bit tough because they put the one bolt so tight. Without getting something like a breaker bar out, I had to heave on it a bit to get the one bolt loose, but once it did, there was no problems getting everything together. The compressor is not quiet, but is quieter then what I expected. I would say it is about as loud as my old sears 1ccf regular air compressor made for tires. The rubber on the feet is kinda stiff, I would say it has a texture halfway between a car tire and plastic. The one thing I was worried about was I read a lot of reviews about leaking oil on last years model, but so far, i have had no problems with any leaks. If I had any complaints, it would only be that I wish it was a bit lighter, but I was expecting the weight when I got it. it states is weighs 47 pounds in the description, so definitely not light. How long will it last over time, only time will tell. Overall, i am very happy with my purchase.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Overall
First one lasted one day. Second one not Craftsman quality.

A friend had one of the 125 psi ones and I liked the way it worked. So I bought one of the 135psi ones. The first one I followed instructions setting up. Pumped up two tire and worked great. On third tire the compressor kicked off and all that I got was a humming noise. It showed plenty of oil just wouldn't start back. This was all in one day. Took it back to Sears ( a 42 mile round trip) and exchanged it. Put the second one together. One of the bolts that holds the handle on was cross-threaded and will not tighten up all of the way. Ran it through two cycles and seems to be working ok for now. Will continue to monitor it. I did expect more from Craftsman. I give it three stars for now because of first one not lasting a day and shoddy workmanship on the second one. I will report after I use it some more.
