      Craftsman 33 Gallon 165 MAX PSI  Quiet Vertical Air Compressor 

      The 33 gallon 165 MAX PSI vertical air compressor delivers plenty of run time 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.

      Died the first day I used it
      We bought this compressor at the end of October. I unpacked it and plugged it in and it worked, but I didn't really use it until last month (March). After only an hour or two, it started throwing the breaker and shooting sparks out of the motor. I tired it on a dedicated 20 amp outlet and same thing happened - definitely a problem with the compressor. I loaded it up and took it back to Sears for a replacement. I understand things like this can happen and I didn't expect any problems. To my dismay, since it had been more than 60 days since I bought it, they wouldn't swap - I had to send it back to be repaired. That's when the nightmare began. Long story short, more than 4 weeks later they don't even have the parts yet. I've repeatedly requested them to just replace it, but they don't have the authority to make that decision. When (if) they finally fix or replace it, I'll grudgingly try it again. What choice do I have? I sure wish I had bought a different compressor from a different company. Even HF will quickly replace defective products. Good customer service can offset marginal products.

      what I was looking for.

      I was looking for an air compressor for my garage for a while now. I wanted something with a high pressure (165) is nice and a decent size tank. 33 gallons hopefully will be enough for running some air tools every now and then. It is short and rather compact, which surprised me, but am happy because it will fit nicely under my cabinets. I have not used it quite yet other than to run it one time and check that it was ok after receiveing it. The compressor runs fairly quite. A lot quieter than the pancake compressor that I have. It does take quite some time to bring the tank up to full pressure. I think it ran for about 15 minutes plus, but that was form a tank pressure of zero. I am hoping to run a impact wrench and or an air rachet. I know that there will be enough pressure (air supply) to run nail guns. Only thing I wish that this came with was a dryer and filer combo. I purchased this on sale and was happy with the price. the wheels make it nice to move around. The drian on the bottom is ok, bt there is not a ton of room to get your hand under there. I had to tilt the compressor forward to be able to open the drain. overall i am happy with the purchase and hope it will last a good long time.

      Perfect garage setup, very quiet and dependable!

      If I still had my shop I would have used these instead of noisy compressor.

      Great for home shop use. Will run virtually most air tools.

      First thing to do is remove the drain petcock and install a quarter inch ball or similar drain valve. You will struggle with the stock valve. This is my second one and it is much quieter.

      air compressor

      My boyfriends air compressor was very old and finally blew the engine. I wanted to get him a new one for an early Xmas present. Wasn't going with anything else but Craftsman. He said he didn't need one this big. But you never know. He was very happy to get it. No problems with it so far. And I hope it lasts as long as the last one.

      Amazing value for a well constructed compressor

      So I will admit, this is the first real compressor I've owned. Went to ************** and purchased a silimar priced compressor, got it home and it was damaged right out of the box. Took that back and made the decision to go to a more reputable dealer for a mechanical part. Got this home, plugged it in and it filled right up. Set my tool pressure, got my impact wrench out and was able to change the front shocks on my Expedition. Several of the nuts/bolts were pretty rusted and this thing easily provided a great throughput of air to get the wheels, upper control arm, lower stabilizer bar, tie rods, lower strut bolt off without having to refill.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      A solid compressor with one minor flaw

      The Craftsman 33 gallon compressor is my second Craftsman compressor that I own. The other is a one gallon that I use for small things around the house. The 33 gallon sits in my garage and has worked great for everything that I have used it for. I used it for my pneumatic nail gun to finish my boys clubhouse. I used it recently to replace the struts on my van. Getting of the lug nuts was simple and easy. The only issue that I have with this compressor, and with almost every other compressor made these days is the drain valve. It is located on the very bottom and is very hard to access. Not just that, it is hard to tell which way opens it and closes it. The solve is to remove the drain valve bolt at the bottom, install a 1/4" street elbow, a 6" extender, and a shut off valve, and the problem is fixed. As I said, every compressor has this issue, not just this one.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      165 psi air compressor

      Relatively quiet for air compressor but really drops off pressure fast and almost immediately turns on with any use of air. Never seems to catch up with any air tool being used. Disappointing to have to stop every few minutes for catch up as pressure continues to decline. Would be fine for filling tires or impact wrench but not so good for real use.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Good So Far-Drain A Pain but fixable

      Just bought it from Sears. It is made by Cambell-Hausfeld, a good manufacturer. The compressor is much quieter than the old one I had and though only run for a week so far, seems all it is advertised to be. The bottom drain had to go, you cannot reach it nor get your fingers around the ****. Replace it with an 1/4 NPT 90 degree elbow, then an extension 1/4 inch pipe (I used 6 inches) and a 1/4 to 1/4 male connector with the old drain. Now you can reach it easily, total cost about $6.00. Much cheaper than larger tires or putting it up higher as you still would need to kneel down to see the darn thing.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
