Product Description

Craftsman 33 Gallon 165 MAX PSI  Quiet Vertical Air Compressor 

The 33 gallon 165 MAX PSI vertical air compressor delivers 20% longer tool run time than 150PSI compressors so you get jobs done faster.  It is oil free/maintenance free for ease of use.  With the large 33 gallon tank, oil free design, and easy portability because it has wheels,  this is the perfect compressor for all spray painting projects!.  It can also handle all inflation, light to medium automotive projects as well.  It also has a high flow regulator so when you need the full power of the compressor, you have it! 

 When you are done, all you have to do is wrap up the cord and wheel the compressor away on its two convenient wheels.   This 110-120 v, 15-amp air compressor even works with an extension cord, thanks to its low-voltage start up.

This Craftsman 33 gallon vertical air compressor has 2 quick connects that let you have 2 lines ready so you can switch between tools quickly and waste less time. The compressor recharges fast, giving you less down time between uses as well. Another convenient aspect of this tank is that you are able to store it in cold or warm conditions without risk of ruining it. This is thanks to the fact that it requires no oil or maintenance.

  • 33 gallon air compressor with wheels travels easily
  • The 110-120 v cord on this compressor lets you plug it into essentially any standard plug, including extension cords, because it has a low-voltage start up
  • The tank has a max storage psi of 165
  • Storing this tank in cool conditions is no problem because it does not require oil
  • This air compressor has quick connects so you can switch rapidly between pneumatic tools

Relatively quiet
In contrast to the last Craftsman compresser I bough (which is still working well after 10 years) this one is much quieter. Two quick connects for output allow you to set up one side to go through a filter or dehumidier while leaving the other side for inflating. Like most compressors this size, the drain on the bottom is difficult to reach. Spend $20 and replace this with an elbow, a 6" nipple and a ball valve and you will be able to easily bleed the water out of the bottom of the tank.

Product and store fail to meet expectations
Not exactly dead on arrival...worse...UNSAFE. Turned on and it keeps pumping until safety valve releases at 170 psi. Tried to cycle several times and suspect pressure switch is defective. Called Sears customer assistance line, was transferred seven times, and told to call back next day to arrange my loading up this big thing and driving it back to return to the store. Really? This is basically a heavy appliance, they should repair on-site or pickup and replace. Very unhelpful and customer hostile attitude. Defective Sears merchandise is becoming common and customers seem to such and inconvenience to Sears.

Returned and Replaced

Fired up the first one to 165psi, next day pressure was down to 30psi. Found the check valve had leak around the threads. I could have take it apart and put some tape on it, but decided to take it back for a replacement. Second one seems like it's holding pressure. As for everything else I'm pretty happy with it; time will tell.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman 33 Gallon Quiet Vertical Air Compressor 165PSI

I just bought this about a month ago but so far it seems to work great, running quietly and filling the tank quickly. I haven't had a chance to try my air tools. I do plan to do as others have suggested and install an easier to access drain valve. I also connected a 50ft hose reel from **************.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

work horse

Nice product

I bought this to replace an older one that was not working. This one is very quiet and very nice. When I got it home the gauge on the outlet side was leaking air. After taking off the gauge I found no plumbers tape or anything on the threads. I had to put plumbers putty on the threads and reinstall the gauge. Everything works fine now...

I would recommend this product to a friend.

First unit returned for another

First unit I bought had issues. The pressure switch did not work properly. I unplugged it when the tank pressure was at 200psi. One of the motor mounts was broken upon unpacking. Debris in the tank made it difficult to drain the pressure from the tank, a white product emitted from the drain. I returned this unit and got another one. The one I have now seems to be working well. Time will tell.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Oil less air compresser

I recently purchased a compressor and it is OK. it does take a very long time for the time to fill up. that is probably the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. it is very quiet. I like the fact that it is portable. I haven't really used it under a good load yet.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
