This item is quiet but powerful. It was easy to set up as I had to create a new plug for it. I left it on the pallet it came on and it's set up and ready to go. But the quietness is key!

I bought this item for my husband. He has been needing one. It was easy for my husband to wire it up and to get the compressor going. To my surprise the compressor was very quite! I can hardly hear it in the house! It has enough power though for my husband to do all the mechincal work he needs to do!
The only thing was waiting on the elec. To wire up. But it was worth the money and I shopped all round. It was just as good as the rest but a lot cheaper. It works great for us and very happy.
It doesn't come plumbed or wired out, but bigger units rarely do. I really appreciate this unit. I think it covers one man continuous use okay. It does not let me down in any way. The sales price break I received on the unit sealed the deal for me, I was looking at lower quality units for less than a hundred dollars difference. I like the cast iron pump, that was a selling feature that helped me decide on it. Unless I go big time pro, this unit will do anything for me from plasma, sanding, to paint. What else do I need besides a few impact and air ratchet operations.

Worked okay for a while and then the compressor pump started making noise. Then it began blowing oil through the hose. Kept adding oil when needed. It kept getting worse and finally froze up. Checked with Sears Parts Direct and the compressor pump is the same price as the entire unit. FIGURES!!! Everything today is throw way junk from China. No wonder our country is in such sad shape. I'll see if I can get the pump rebuilt at a reasonable price or go shopping for a real compressor.
Picked up this unit because my old compressor gave up. Got it installed and worked fine for a week. Had head oil leak. Was replaced. This one lasted 2 weeks. same problem. had it replaced. same problem plus with noise in compressor. With fourth compressor head leaking, Sears said they would replace the complete unit. I don't know why, will have the same compressor head! Would not tell anyone to buy this item!
bought this air compressor roughly 2 years ago on sale for 499. was a good deal at the time didn't want to pass it up. first thing I noticed upon break in, the pulley for the compressor pump knocks against the plastic housing. no biggey, trimmed the bottom. after about a year it started having troubles starting the motor, and finally after 2 years it appears the starter capacitor has gone bad (maybe the motor has gone bad, figure i'll start with the cheapest solution). So bad that the motor won't even start on it's own power with the belt removed. 5$ for a replacement capacitor, not a big deal but the quality of the craftsman name is terrible anymore. The switch "manifold"(as it's referred to in the product booklet) is terribly designed since it's not designed to be removed so you can properly clean the contacts on it. In Hindsight I would've been better off buying an 80gal from **************, or spending the money on a higher quality product.
