I've had this compressor for 5 years and have not had many issues with it. It would been nice if they shipped the oil with the compressor, so when I got it I could have used it, had to go to parts store to get compressor oil. It also required a timed delay fuse for start up. Holds air a long time so you don't have to fill tank again to inflate a small tire or to blow something off. Very quiet not like the oil less compressors.
Very quiet when running. This was a nice surprise. Handles my work load easily. No leaks. Make sure to run from a 20-amp circuit and charging should be just fine. Use longer air hoses - do NOT use extension cords.
I have owned this air compressor for two years. I waited this long to write a review because the other reviews of this unit are mixed, and I wanted to test it quite a bit before posting an opinion. First, I specifically wanted the horizontal unit so that it would be more stable when moved around. One primary use that I have for it is blowing out irrigation lines for the winter. I can pull this around my property without any risk of it falling over. I also store it under my workbench so it takes up less space in my shop. The only problem that I have encountered was that the air pump was quite low on oil when I received this unit. Sears does not sell synthetic air compressor oil, so I had to mail-order it from another vendor. I am not permitted to say the name of the competitor here but just think Tools that are Northern. You must check the oil level before use. Next, you need a 20 amp power supply to reliably run this air compressor. Many of the problems reported about this air compressor are actually insufficient home wiring, not the fault of the product. The wheels are bent on some of these units as they are using squeeze/clamp type forklifts at some Sears warehouses, rather than lift type forklifts. The squeeze type crushes the box and contents. Check the box for damage when you pick it up (the box has a warning printed on it that specifically prohibits clamp type forklifts). The unit has not given me any problems at all. It is powerful enough to blow out irrigation lines, run air tools, paint, and inflate anything you want to inflate. It is much quieter than a single stage oil-less compressor. The black "Professional" Sears air compressors are much better that the economy "Red" product line. The electric motor and air pump are made in China, the air tank is made in USA and the unit is assembled in USA. The tank is actually the important part, as that is what can get you hurt if it fails. This is as close as you are going to get to made in USA at this price point. If I had to buy it again, I would without hesitation.
SUCKS AT 110V trips breakers, ran 220V dedicated circuit trips overloads, and yes it was rewired correctly. Asked sears repair center...told to bring in and get back in three weeks.....WTF? I asked what am I supposed to do in mean time? Reply: Buy another for back up. And yes the motor said made in china! SO bought new motor local reputable supply house $297.00 later, installed it, YAY right? NOT Two days later overload trips again... seems the Automatic control is sticking and not dumping the head pressure so it is starting against pressure and tripping the overloads. Called sears again... same answer 3 to 4 weeks and most likely it wont be warranty. Seems that all that SEARS warranties is really the TANK!@! SO I have to assume that they have great desires to go by the wayside like Montgomery Wards. BUY WITH GREAT DESIRE TO GET SCREWED!
no leaks air or oil, starts hard in the cold, 30s i have to completly drain the tank when it is cold to get the motor to start pumping, could be due to the distance from the eletrical service entrance, i may try switching to 240V and see if that helps, its nice to have a compressor that is quiet and has a longer run time between topup, it came ready to go from the box, after a 30 minute no load break in period.
Great compressor and quiet unless you need to power it from a generator. Attempted to connect using a 3000 watt big red "Hon" and also a "Yam" blue generator (probably can't use the brand names) and a 6300 "Yam" . Could not start up and overloaded the gen.

I have owned this compressor since 2005, and its been reliable. with estimated 400+ hours on it with yearly Amsoil oil changes this compressor has never let me down, yes it draws heavy on circuits its to be expected when starting a compressor with pressure in the system. Never had any leaks. I drain the tank after every use and I have recommended this to friends and they are just as happy with its performance. Only suggestion don't use cheep ************** tools or low grade craftsman. I use the tools from my tool box at work all high grade tools, found works better than cheepy tools. And also found if your intelligent enough to use a PROFFESIONAL grade compressor you would be smart enough to understand starting amp load rating of a motor.

Purchased this after returning a the 26 gallon oil-less compressor. Previous compressor leaked, and was deafeningly loud. After performing manufacturer specified startup, found air and oil leaks on the compressor. I was very disappointed in the purchases I made, and returned all of it for a refund. Save your money, and time and buy quality tolls made in the states.
So far so good I like this compressor , runs quite ,fills up fast , and it is made by San Born , I owned a San Born compressor for 30 + yrs and it still runs , hope this one last as long as the old one does. had to add a little oil to it but that is all ,have it on a dedicated line like it says to do in the instructions . I added a inline water filter to remove water from my line and it works great . no problems here .
I got this compressor to replace standard (non professional line) compressor when it seized. This compressor is much more adequate for my needs. It puts out a good amount of air (5.6cfm at 90psi) and is SUPER quiet. It's easy to move around though and doesn't take up much footprint. I have a few gripes though. First, the wheels are very loose, and I haven't found a good way to tighten them yet. I don't know if the issue is the bearings or what. Second, I had to superglue and zip-tie the cylinder pressure relief valve line that runs to the pressure switch, because it was blowing off the fitting around 110psi. The regulator and pressure switch leave something to be desired as well, they seem cheap. The compressor is great functionally (puts out plenty of clean air and is quiet), but is lacking in the quality department. Classic Chinese Sears quality :-/ Also, there are many compressors out there with significantly better specs that are American made and are comparable in price.
