Does fine for what it is. Part 1
Lets see things for what there are. For all of the people boo-hooing about the performance of the compressor remember it?s a $600 compressor! I know the ad always seems to say ?$730 on sale for . . .? Each time I?ve looked I?ve seen $600 or so therefore it?s a $600 compressor. I picked mine up new for $446 so there you go. Not a display or scratch and dent if you?re wondering. One just has to be patience and the deals will come. For those that want high(er) performance then spend the money. Nice compressors that have high output, quick recovery, low vibration, heavier construction and the like are going to start at nearly twice the price of this one. Names like Quincy, IR, BelAire and such are well over $1000 for a two stage, 60 gallon tank compressor. Their motors are 5 hp and above. Now there are lemons and things do break for no good reason. It sounds like the warranty should have taken care of most of those that suffered so.

Two Weeks in and the replacement is on its way...leaking
I buy Craftsman Professional for a reason....that reason being that I want things to work and work well. So far that has been the case until I bought this Air Compressor. The leaks between the head and the tank were so bad that I didn't need to use liquid leak detector ...tried to tighten the fittings but still leaked. Called for a service repair and they suggested a replacement since it had only been two weeks. But catch is I have to load it back up and take it back to the store to get the replacement. Which there is no guarantee that the replacement won't leak.I really am starting to think that Craftsman quality isn't what it used to be. There is no way this unit was ever tested before it left the factory. !! I should have headed the other reviews....if I had it to do all over again I would probably go with IR.

nice and quiet

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 would recommend this product to a friend.

Awesome purchase

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!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Works great

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great compressor

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Poor quality

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.

major problems

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!

a decent compressor

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.
