      Great Compressor for the money.
      I got this compressor on a special sale so I got it at a very good price. Not for too long I got it just about a week ago. It's a great compressor, a balance between mobility and air volume. if I have the room I will get the 60 gallon stationary one for about the same price, not like it's hard to pull a wire out of my main fuse for 220 V operation. but I don't have the room so I just settle with this. Anyway for those who might buy this, there are 3 things to keep in mind that's not mention in the manual. - Sears does not sell the Semi-Synthetic non-detergent oil this compressor called for. I know what other alternatives that you can use, will not mention them here because I don't want to confuse some noobs who reads this. Solution is you either buy them online (whatever brand it is), or if you have a Lowes Nearby, they sell the Semi-Synthetic Compressor oil for around 7-8 bux per 16oz, get 3 of them, why? read. - I'm not sure what happen but when I unbox my compressor, some oil was found on the motor, plastic case that covers the bell, and some was on the manual. I checked the oil level and sure enough, it's low. the oil plug/level reader is pretty retarded and hard to read. Add oil carefully, it's easy to overfill. After you add oil to it back to the Full mark, follow the instructions in the manual and turn it on to break in - After the break-in (30 mins of operating with the bottom petcock open) , DRAIN THE OIL COMPLETELY and refill it with the extra oil you have around back to spec. Oil goes in completely clear and clean, after the first 30 mins of break-in, its filled with metal particles that you can see easily. yuck. I wonder how many people out there just keep running it like this until 100 hrs or so later and found out their compressor is "not pumping fast/worn out". For me, after the drain and fill, I ran the compressor again for another 15 minutes then drain again, oil comes out much cleaner this time. Fill again, and the compressor has been rocking. oh by the way, don't overtighten the drain plug cuz it might break the rubber seal ... and Craftsman don't have a part # for it, you should be able to find whatever rubber seal that fits, or just get a copper washer to go with it. just something to keep in mind so u don't break it the first time you drain/fill it. Hope this helps.

      WOW....IS THIS AMERICAN MADE?
      I was excited about getting this compressor despite the reviews....about the leaks and lack of oil. I did have to buy oil to add so I could do the proper break-in. but after changing the oil....the think was leaking like crazy! It was on the line from the tank...not easily tightened. I had to take everything off (including the electrical to stop the leak). I tried to get the store to repair it all I got was bring it back and we will get you a new one. Whay would I do this just to get another leaking compressor? They said I should have bought the service agreement...they they would have come to me to make the repairs..... Why is this? Do they know they are selling junk? just expect it to leak and be prepared to add oil right out of the box

      2nd Craftsman compressor

      This is my 2nd Craftsman compressor. My first one developed a small pinhole in the tank--, after 40 years of service. (I should have drained the tank more often) I bought it brand new in 1975. 20 gal ,horizontal tank, twin cylinder, 150 psi. This new one is the same thing, except being vertical. It runs super quite, and quick recovery. I did purchase a couple of pipe fittings and extended the drain out to the side so I could drain the moisture off the tank more often. I got a 1/4" pipe thread street "L" and a 6" straight nipple. I already had a turn valve. Even with the street L , I had to add a 3/4" thick board to the legs to clear the pipe off of the floor. I purchased 2 bottles of synthetic compressor oil, and added some before starting. Ran it 30 minutes and charged the oil. Great compressor, and no leaks anywhere.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Great Product and Price. I recommend it.

      I bought this air compressor for home remodeling and auto mechanic work and it performs really well. Noise level is quiet, but certainly impressive for 27 gal workhorse. Not small, but not too big to either. A one man operation can move this compressor around pretty easily. Anything less probably will not hold up on the job on medium to large projects. If you only need to shoot nails then this one may be overkill, but if you need constant power that is portable then this is the one. I recommend anyone who is considering buy a Craftsman compressor to buy the professional model over the regular (red model) ones. You really do get what you pay for and the professional models are always build more heavy duty. I have many Craftsman products and I typically will pay a bit more to buy the professional products - so far I am a happy camper. The wheels are a nice touch for this upright design and I actually like this design much more now that I've used it a few times. It moves in and around the house/garage easily. I can also push it up a ramp onto my truck/trailer by myself and I am just a medium build guy with a gut. This thing has plenty of power for continuous use. I first used it to spray a basement ceiling and had no issues after 2 hours of heavy usage. Just be sure to inflate the tires properly and especially double check the oil level before your first use. My tires were a bit low and oil level was low. An easy fix, but I was surprised to find it low being this is brand spanking new. Just make sure you use the recommended air compressor oil. Again, no serious complaints really... I did spend a good couple of days researching and I am happy I bought this one. A couple of my handyman friends bought smaller regular series Craftsman air compressors a few years back and they are all dead. You really do get what you pay for, so it's worth the extra money to buy Professional.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Excellent design, well made

      After returning 3 defective compressors in a row by another manufacturer, I settled on this one as being the best choice in a lower price range. The design makes repair easy. It is much quieter than any compressor I have seen. The high air output makes a bigger tank unnecessary. Full parts are available online including a replacement tank. I was unable to find any other manufacturer that sells all the parts that might be needed. For many brands you can't even find parts at all.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Better than the reviews

      Here is objective review of this compressor. First off, I got it on sale with the craftsman club. I picked it up in a store in Northern California and the compressor and box were in perfect shape. I plugged it into a plug with a 20amp breaker wired with 12ga wire. I followed the owners manual and checked the oil (which was full). I opened the drain valve and ran the compressor for the 30 min. Changed the oil (oil from L***s). Turned the compressor back on and built pressure to 150psi. Worked like a charm. No leaks. No tripped breakers. I was hesitant due to other reviews but stuck with craftsman and happy I did. I'd recommend this to anyone who needs higher cfms. This replaced the 12 gallon 1hp direct drive which was way too loud. I would estimated the compressor noise to be approximately 85 decibels at 15 away in a garage.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
