i have owned this for 10 months so far and it works great i keep it in a separate room with my toolbox in the garage and it pretty quiet, i typically paint at night and its no louder than an outside ac unit.it does have a minor oil leak from one top head bolts and lower pan bolts so I'm assuming it not torqued or seal problem, so i check the oil once a month to top off, but i dont mind. better to leak oil at the pump then at the air line. fill up quick around 2min empty or 30sec when it kicks back on. real good compressor and its already payed for itself

This is the second compressor for me. The sales manager was kind enough to credit half the cost from my first compressor even though it was out of warranty. The first compressor leaked oil and seized up in less then 3 years. My new compressor does the same, leaks oil. It also continues to trip the circuit. I call an electrician who has informed me that it's pulling 57 amps at start up. It should be pulling no more then 17. I guess that's why we are popping the breaker twice a day. I'm not sure why Craftsmen would make such a poor design. I have read several reviews whereby the head leaks oil. Unfortunately this compressor is a piece of junk. The price is great but it's a piece of junk.

Well this didn't last too long....Have had this POS wired up for a week. It started fine and seemed to work fine. I went in the garage a few days later. Turned on the compressor. It blew my 20 amp 250V breaker. Ok fine...I upgraded breaker to a 25 amp. Reset motor....It keeps tripping breaker. It did not do this before. I can hear a buzzing sound like motor doesn't really want to start. This has less than 1 hour of run time on it. I should've listed to the other reviews....
Item looked good, hard wired to electrical panel, started and ran good. Noticed tank is not treated inside for rust, drain often, Second is no regulator or connections other than a female pipe plug on the side of tank. third, it has ran about 40 hours in the last year. Today the start capacitor failed, leaked capacitor oil down the cover and on the motor. The motor is 3.1 running horse power.. make believe 3 horse, not like the old compressor 3 horse power. Motor not a seal duty motor, not good for paint fumes, or Mud dobber wasps, wrap a window screen around it to keep the bugs out!
I purchased this item when I walked into the store and saw that it was $270 off. I wasn't necessarily interested in purchasing a compressor of this capacity, but given the range of jobs I'd like to perform with it, including automotive painting, I couldn't pass it up. I paid $459 for the unit, which is substantially less than any other compressor of similar size can be found for, even at the cheap, "bargain-brand" tool suppliers. The only drawback is that it requires a direct-wired 220 volt supply, and I can't determine why. It only draws 15 volts and is 1 stage, so I would infer that it could probably be functional without the extra voltage. However, that aside, once I ran my electric and powered the unit I was pleasantly surprised....first, it supplies ample power for any possible job you can imagine, but more importantly, it doesn't deafen you like compressors have a tendancy to do. I have this installed in my garage, and can still hear my radio just fine even when on a quiet volume when this compressor is running. I'd highly suggest this item, especially at the incredible sales price, for anyone interested in a compressor with versatility. Please note that I was awarded for writing this review.

The electric motor on my 27 year old Craftsman 20 gall. 3 hp just died so I decided rather than replace the motor, to get something with more air volume. The only problem I had with the pld unit was an oil leak that developed in the compressor oil pan because of porosity which I took apart and repaired with epoxy 20 years ago, since the warranty had expired. Well, the best deal going was the 60 gallon, 3 h.p. vertical for 489.00 at my local Sears. It was packaged well and did not have any obvious damage or oil leakage. I hooked up the required 220 volt power, leveled the base and installed the appropriate fittings in the tank. According to the directions, the compressor pump was pre-filled with oil and I only had to perform the required break in period for 30 minutes, drain, refill etc... Experience told me to check the oil and I am very glad I did. The oil didn't even register on the dipstick and I needed to add approx. 10 oz of oil to the compressor head. This unit wouldn't of lasted very long being this low on oil. After finding this, I proceeded to check every nut and bolt, fitting etc... to make sure nothing else was compromised. Where is the quality assurance at the factory? Sears should take note and revamp inspection process ASAP. People expect brand new components to work properly and don't want any hassels right from the start! Overall the unit now works great and I look forward to many years of service.
I do a lot of hobby work out of my home and I have four smaller compressors but none of them could do blasting that I wanted to do so I had been waiting and looking and I finally found one I could afford that would do what I needed it to do.

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!
