Did the breakin procedure and the thing failed. Wouldn't fire up the first time, loaded motor but no compressor. Had to take it back, total misery. Very disappointed, we'll see how customer service treats us.
I am impressed with this compressor has great power, apart from being very quiet my airgun half inch works perfectly and I also can not fault the performance of my gun 1 inch

The first compressor had a porosity in the pump cylinder wall so it had to be returned. Quality control should have found this. The second compressor was in perfect shape. Followed the set up and break-in directions and it fills quickly and is much quieter than the oilless version. I re-plumbed the condensate drain with an elbow, longer pipe and a ball valve so it could be accessed as the original is hard to reach and has very limited clearance for your fingers. After that the compressor works great and I'm happy with it.
I ended up choosing this compressor because it just fit under my wall cabinets (30 gallon and up machines are too tall and I didn't want to give up floor space to a horizontal tank). And the price on sale was right! I read most of the reviews - the "good, the bad and the ugly" and thought I might be taking a bit of a chance in buying this model. Any way, I went ahead but took a few precautions: 1) I picked up the compressor at the local store (to reduce chance of damage by carrier some reviewers mentioned); 2) after unpacking it I checked the belt alignment as described in the manual; 3) I checked the oil level before running it; and 4) after running it for the recommended 30 minutes with the drain valve open I changed the oil. It takes about 18 oz. so I suggest picking up a couple of quarts for future changes. I found the right oil on the ********** web site. It is not in the store. Compressor has about 20 hours on it now and is running fine -- and a bit quieter than my two gallon dual-tank pancake style. Heckuva lot more air too!
I bought this compressor on sale and got it for a great deal. Got it home, performed the break-in as required and changed the oil. Since then the compressor has ran everyday with zero issues. Its really quite compared to my last compressor, and refills itself in less than a minute. Its very conveinent that it isnt to bulky and can be plugged into both 110v and 220v. The only things that slightly bugged me, was that the oil required for the compressor wasn't available at SEARS, but it was at another store that rhyms with Bose for about 7 bucks a bottle (1.5 required). That and the drain valve can be a pain to access sometimes. Either way these two things wouldnt delay me in suggesting or buying this compressor again!!!
I have owned a few single stage 20 gal electric compressors rated for air tools but they never could keep up. I had to wait and the noise was blasting!! This model at long last leaves me nothing to complain about. It keeps up with every air tool at ********** & ***** models only to return them. I opted for the 2 stage for low noise, longevity and the ability to keep my air supply going strong. This compressor is THE buy for a home unit, you will never be disappointed and the price, well the compressor is worth every penny and then some! If you are at all in the know about air compressors, air tools and the volume required to run those tools the right way stop hesitating and go buy this model.
