i had looked at pancake compressors, but for the price this one is better...the 3 gallon tank is great and the oil keeps the compressor going...it quickly pumped up my lawn tractor tires and works just fine for car tires also....it is a little noisy, but nothing more than any other compressor....craftsmen quality at a great price!
I bought this 9 years ago to run a trim nailer and general usage such as filling tires and blowing off bench tops. I built my 30x 50 shop and used it to run a framing nailer and have continued to use it filling tires from bikes, vehicles, trailers and tractors. It won't run an impact but I didn't buy it to run an impact. If not needed for running an impact or other air tools there is no reason to spend more than this thing costs. I have used it on my air die grinders and sometimes you have to let it build up volume and pressure. I will buy another when this one gives out, if it gives out.
I really like this little compressor. I abused my last one enough to buy another. I use mine quite abit. It runs a roof nailer just fine even though it isn't recommended. My last one lasted 3 years of continuos abuse and that's what lead to me buying it again. The only thing i don't like as that its tippy during transport so you do have to secure it. Other than that great compressor for the price.
This is a great tool for the average home garage for refilling tires and bicycles and balloons, etc. I used my first one for years and then sold it and bought a new one because I could not live without one.
I purchased this for use at an apartment because the garage facility only had a 15 amp circuit. It works very well within that limitation and I only use it for inflating tires and blowing clean automotive parts and tool chests. Keep in mind it is portable and only 3 gallons. It's not meant to replace a 60 gallon 5hp shop compressor.
This 3 gallon Craftsman tank is great for household chores like tire inflation. This unit holds pressure wells so it does not have to run frequently. It also features a compact design.
Got tired of going to the gas station and spending a dollar or so to fill up tires on the trucks or motorcycle. This is perfect and it will come in handy when washing cars to help dry the small crevices where water hides. Was on sale for $89 and the price can't be beat. I love my craftsman products. Only negative about the compressor is it does dance across the floor when it's charging up. I will have to find a way to secure it to the floor.
I bought this compressor 10 years ago and am still incredibly happy with it. For small quick jobs, it can't be beat. It doesn't have enough CFM to use an impact wrench with it but it's quite good for using a nail gun or air grinder/ sander. It's small enough to carry to the job location and just big enough to get the job done. I have never had any regrets with the purchase of this unit. It does vibrate around a little bit but I expected that it might be due to it's overall weight.
