Product Description

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.

Quiet & Great Price!

I replaced a 15 year old Craftsman Compressor with the 33 Gallon Vertical. Really much quieter than my old one. More than enough power for running impact gun and ratchet. Price is outstanding for a large home shop unit. Completely assembled out of the box. All I did was add a drain extension. Buy this and you will love it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

looks gr8 at this point

Picked one up this morning, unpacked, inspected,fired 'er up ... took a few minutes to fill 7 to 10 or so. Checked relief valve stopped it @ 150 psi ... been holding there for a couple hours now. Not crazy about the drain plug will probably change it. My old 20 ga unit couldn't keep up ... I'll be occasionally pushing this one to the outer parameters of it's duty cycle ... I think it'll do OK only time will tell.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Very nice compressor - replaced my old Craftsman of 18 years.

The compressor is much quieter than I expected. The added 15psi (over 150psi) is nice so the compressor does not cycle as much.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I was surprised how good for 110 volts and oiless.

I bought this item when my old Craftsman 30 gal 5 hp unit started getting tired after 20+ years. I always liked the oil compressors because you could take care of them by changing the oil on a regular basis, and they would last a long time. I was hesitant to buy this compressor since some of the reviews were not kind, but I bought it and am glad I did. As a plus the vertical configuration is easier to move around and takes up less room than my previous horizontal unit. This compressor is a little louder than my previous unit, but really not too bad. It has the power to run most of my air tools without contiguously running. Will it last as long as my previous unit since it is oiless? Only time will tell.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

works great

My 15 year old craftsman 8 gallon air compressor just wouldnt push my impact or air tools like I needed for a transmission change. I went online and found this listed on sale for 100 dollars off putting in the price range of HF compressors but with better CFM performance numbers. Once at home I have not been disappointed. It is quieter than my old compressor, and carries the tools with ease. Using a 1/2 inch impact and 3/8 ratchet at the same time. Next up is painting.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
