I was a little apprehensive after reading the reviews on if i should buy this regulator/filter. I decided that i needed to find out for myself if this thing is up too the challenge or not. Let me start out by saying that the entire unit is made out of metal except for the control handle on top which is disappointing, because the unit as a whole is very sturdy. In fact, my only complaint and the reason this product does not deserve 5 stars is because the handle is made out of plastic and could very easily break under the wrong hands. I think sears should look at adding a square metal insert into the inside of the handle or beef it up in some other way. The regulator works great and if your careful the handle works fine as well.

This regulator is rated up to 175 PSI. I keep my air compressor at 150 PSI I have had the plastic bowl crack 3 times on me. Not sure if it was just a bad lot or if it is a known issue. Other than that it seems to get the job done.

Only expected a pressure regulator to allow me to control pressure. It failed. Difficult to set it at the 90 pounds I needed from my 60 gallon tank compressor. Pressure fluctuated wildly once set. Lucky it did not blow out my tool, but made sanding diffucult. The port cap for the Guage was glued tight, the soft metal was not strong enough to overcome the seal and therefore I was stuck with the Guage on the wrong side for my application. When using the blower, the air blast was noticeably wetter than without the built in filter. In short it failed miserably. Lucky it did so immediately giving me time to return it. I suppose in the interest of protecting my expensive tools, Ingersoll, snapon,... I should invest in a good regulator, filter and dryer.
I bought this less than a year ago, it's a piece of garbage on two accounts. 1. The regulator never worked consistently. I can't always regulate A/P without shutting off the air and unscrewing the regulator completely, re-seating it and then closing it up. 2. The polycarbonate bowl (water trap) cracked at the bottom where the drain valve is seated. If the drain seat was too tight, that's from the factory (China) and should be a covered item. The problem is they don't sell or stock the bowl separately. After getting the run-around using the phone, my solution was to buy the Husky regulator and swap out the bowls until I can replace the whole thing.
Most of my tools are Craftsman. I like them and they're affordable. But this product is a complete piece of junk. I'm on my fourth one in 8 months (can't find my receipt so I have to keep exchanging it) and I only use my compressor 1 to 2 times per week. The first one came out of the pkg broken, the second lasted a couple months before spewing water through my tools, the third one broke in two days and the fourth lasted a few days before spewing water. I just ordered a different one from Northern Tools so I can prime my car and keep my tools from being ruined. Doesn't Sears read these reviews?
Had it installed for 6 months before the bowl burst. Even before it blew it wouldn't allow enough constant CFM for tools. I would not recommend this item for any use. STAY AWAY!! Save your money!! Bought an Ingersoll Rand 2000 series. Works great.
