Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimmyP Puma 40 Gal, had for about 4 months so here is my review.
I am a home garage hobbyist and was wanting to find a suitable air compressor to run systems i needed in the garage...i.e. impact guns, sandblasting cabinet, air hammers, da sanders, die grinders, and etc. Whilst i never opted for your big 80 gallon belt driven two stage unit, i did come across this 40 gallon belt driven two stage unit. Let me say this...this compressor will keep up with anything you put on it. My sandblasting cabinet has a rated 15 cfm tip on it (that's the way it came and i haven't changed it) and I haven't had to wait for no pressure to build up. As a matter of fact when the pressure does drop and u feel that and when the compressor kicks on, the pressure is as good as is if the tank was fully charged and u pulled the first air out of it (i.e. it does almost better when it is running...on my 15 cfm sandblasting tip). As far a packaging, i ordered online, took about a week or so to arrive to store (central TX) and when i went to pick up, was not at all displeased at packaging. Bolted to a pallet that had enough bubble wrap to keep anything from dinging it. Will say this though, the height dimensions on website actually came out a few inches shorter...i think they calculate the height of the unit on the pallet. As far as this unit goes, so far so good, would definitely buy again. Will tell you this though: had this little 2 gallon CH oil-less unit and that thing is twice as loud as the puma.. Stay away from oil-less units.

This is a great little compressor. It has an all cast iron pump, no aluminum crankcase or head. It cycles between 135 and 175 lbs. and runs all my air tools and blast cabinet without a problem. It was easy to install with vibration pads (not included) being shorter and lighter than 60 or 80 gallon units. It's not short on power though being two stage. It suffered minor shipping damage which was quickly remedied by Puma's customer service people. And I must say the Puma representatives are among the nicest people I've ever had the pleasure to deal with. It shipped free to Home Depot where I picked it up. It took the Home Depot staff quite awhile to locate it and get it up front and another quite awhile to get it loaded. They only had one certified lift stacker operator in the whole store. Minor annoyance. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by elmo Wow, this thing really blows!!!
This is a great compressor for the price. Plenty of capacity to operate air tools and keeps up with my Iwata paint gun and blast cabinet, too. The small tank doesn't tke up too much space and the compessor has the capacity to keep up with everything I have. I hooked up an old eighty gallon tank from my old compressor, so have more than enough reserve now. Time will tell how durable this unit is, but I suspect it will last for years of heavy use. Reasonably quiet for the output and appears to be well built. All that and a lovely blue paint that will not clash with most shop decors!! Oh baby!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarkR Great compressor
The compressor is excellent. It was damaged in shipping, but Home Depot and puma worked together to get the replacement parts I needed to fix the damage. This runs quietly for a compressor of this capability.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Woodchuck Great value and quality product...
Excellent quality, powerful dual stage compressor. Set at the factory to maintain 140-175 psi... 40 Gallon tank size fits in tight spaces with much less height requirement than the 60 and 80 gal units. Well built, quiet, and produces plenty of air to run any of my pneumatic tools continuously. Well packaged for shipment and arrived via curbside freight delivery. I would highly recommend this product to my closest friends...
