Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BlazNT Love it.
I'm replacing a 20 year old Craftman 5 hp oil less compressor. I am very happy with the speed of air fill. About 4 times faster than old compressor(I completely rebuild the old compressor for this test). With the smaller air tank it does cycle more when using my tools but it is less on time even with that in mind. Price was just the best I could find at Home Depot.
Only problem I have and this is my fault. It tips over easly. Dont pull the hose too hard or you will have to use an extractor to remove the remaining quick connect and replace it. Lesson learned.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wowser55 No problems. Does it's job great!
This air compressor does everything it's supposed to do and I've had no problems. The only time I don't like it is when I have to carry it. It's heavier than smaller compressors. It has wheels so it can be rolled on flat surfaces though.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Devcon It works very well
The Gauge assembly Plate was to close, so I had to install spacers so that I could install the Air filter. For Spacers I used 5-1/8" stainless steel thick flat washers on each of the Face plate Bolts.
Was missing hardware for the wheels. All that said, the machine works very well. The Company sent me the hardware, and the machine came with oil already installed.
Very good compressor. Yes, I would recomend all to purchase, It is loud so get the quiet one if you need low volume. I Made the overall Rating 4 Stars becaouse of all the extra work I had to do to get it operational.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by None For the price this is a good buy.
Ordered this item online and it was received damaged. The line from the compressor motor to the tank was crushed and the whole compressor was soaked in oil. I contacted customer service and explained to them the damages to the compressor. They ordered another one and because I needed it ASAP for a workshop I was building, Home Depot sent the knew one overnight delivery at no additional cost to me. I also requested that the replacement be pre inspected. The knew one was fine however, the bolt for the wheels axil is a smaller diameter than the actual hole in the wheel which causes the wheel to wobble some. The compressor is a bit top heavy and because the handle is short it is a bit awkward to pull around. Most of the fittings were a tad loose but all and all it works great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FE92 California Air Tools 210DLV oil lubricated air compressor
This air compressor was delivered quickly and was easy to put together ... pretty much just install the wheels, add the oil and it's ready for use. Operation has been 100% reliable and trouble free. For my purposes of general use around the garage, this air compressor is exactly what I need. Size is such that it stores easily under my work bench and can be wheeled anywhere. It fills from empty to full capacity in just a couple of minutes. The compressor came with more than enough oil to add prior to initial use but the bottle had no labels and the manual didn't specify the type of oil to use so I had a question about what type oil to buy for when I need to change the oil. I called their 800 # and got my question answered quickly and courteously by George Lopez. This is a fine product. I read on the Home Depot website that this air compressor has been discontinued. For those who prefer oil lubricated compressors, this is very disappointing.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Manny Just what I wanted ... but
I ordered this and had it shipped to Home Depot. Figured if I had to return it I'd rather go to the store than go through the UPS process. I read reviews and wasn't sure I should order ...nevertheless, I did. Sure enough it arrived in the condition I had read about.
The plastic housing over the compressor motor was broken, split and pulled away from the mounting screws. AND oil had spilled over the motor housing. At first look I thought, so a little oil leaked - wipe it off and move on. So I did and thats when I saw the damage done to the plastic housing over the motor.
The compressor looks well built, sturdy and compact. Met all the conditions I wanted. if only it had not been received in the condition it was. I give it two stars based on what I saw, looks well built, sturdy and compact. Never tried to start it so I can't comment on how it actually works.

I was generally please with this product. It was simple to put together and the one that I got had two rubber bumpers on the front for support, not just one. The air capacity was a little less than I would have hoped but I seems to fill fairly fast. It does the work I need it to do. It wasn't terribly loud when it was filling.
