Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brian Quality home shop compressor
I've had this compressor in my garage for 8 months, primarily used for home auto mechanic work. It's no two stage, but it's a good savings over one of those and has kept up with my 1200 ft-lb air impact, air hammer, air ratchet, 4,500 lb scissor jack, etc. with no problem. I did a lot of research before purchasing this compressor and found it to be the best compromise of price and capability. If you need a serious stationary compressor but don't need a $1,000+ two stage, this Puma is probably just right.
If you're thinking of home-shipping, consider the free shipping to store instead. I opted for that, rented HD's flatbed truck for $20, drove it home and rolled it down the ramps on a dolly with no real trouble. It is heavy, but laying the dolly on its back and "walking" it down the ramps, even in snow, was no sweat.
Note that I bought this for under $700, so watch for sales.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigT Great deal on a 60 gallon compressor
This compressor looked good on paper for the sale price. It's not a 5hp 2-stage that would be great for ANYTHING a homeowner / hobbyist could ever want, but the cheapest one of that caliber was outside my budget. As far as loudness it does rattle my garage door when opened but strangely I can stand 10 feet away from it and have a robust conversation without screaming. I purchased mine 1 year ago and have not purchased many tools other than the basics. Like others I did quite a bit of research but instead of jumping on the pricey Q bandwagon, I opted for the PUMA and have no buyer's remorse.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Butch So far so good !
Like everyone else, i researched this product for a long time. I bought this for under $700.00 including tax. I needed a compressor to run a tire machine, air tools, and a blast cabinet (which is an air hog). After you wire it up (you have to make your own power cord, basic wiring, white to white ,black to black, ground to ground, flat blade plug end), 30a double breaker, 12-2 dedicated line, flat blade receptacle. I would also recommend a 150psi pressure regulator/water filter , and a 1/4" extended drain kit. **CHECK OIL LEVEL** before you break it in.(mine was over filled). I ran it as recommended, valves open for 30 minutes, let it cool down, then it was all good. Make sure you drain it when your done for the day (it makes a decent amount of water (as all compressors do). It's not too loud, but it's a big piece of equipment. It runs all my stuff and the blast cabinet awesome(no fade). It will run 120psi continuously. The air tank gets a little warm near the fill pipe (as expected). The fins on the fill pipe help because that gets HOT (as expected). I've had it about six weeks now (12-17-2014 as i write this), and i use it alot . My experience with this compressor has been great. It has plenty of power and volume to get the jobs done . So if your looking to upgrade from a rolling 20 gallon, to a stationary unit i would get this one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff Excellent compressor
I did quite a bit of research before arriving at this compressor. Since I needed it to work out of my garage, performance and size were important. The CFM rating along with the 60 gallon tank provided just what I needed. It was packaged well and was easy to unload, install and wire up. It is very quite compared to an oil-less compressor that I had. It is a great deal!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Not What I Expected
The motor came damaged on delivery. It was packaged very well, so I assume the damage occurred before the unit left the factory. It operates but was told to run it or return for exchange. Decided to keep for time being because of the trouble of returning and waiting on another unit. It also has a knock at times while running, will let time tell if this might be an issue. Was hoping for a better experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by anonoymous good price for a great compressor
Much like person before me we did alot of research before ordering this compressor from our local dover depot. It runs our blasting cabinet and charges up quick. This was a smart buy and smart of Home Depot to carry such a great product.
