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 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.
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 was looking for a compressor to have handy in the garage. I did a lot of research since I was green in this area and decided to go with this make and model very happy I did.

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.
Bought this for my home garage. Works great for most air tools. Not quite big enough for large sandblasting but good for everything else!!!
