Rated 3 out of 5Â by Funkmotor Works, but loud.
This small compressor comes with a nice kit of accessories to get started with, and that's good because this will probably be your first compressor if you're thinking of buying it.
It takes a few minutes to come up to pressure when you first fire it up, and you get a bit out of it before it cuts back in. Perhaps not ideal, but this is an entry-level compressor.
The one thing I don't like about this unit is that it is very, very loud. Doing some searching yielded a rating of 95 dbA, which is into the range requiring full-time hearing protection. Yes, it is that loud.
I'm rating this at 3 because it is pretty good value for the money. The next level up is a pretty good price difference. The downfall, for me, is in how very loud it is.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by kmillard10 CH 3 gallon compressor
well ok i do own a CH 8 gallon compresor but i needed this small wounder for cleaing off my lathe as well as my mill and small stuff and you know its great for that purpose, i have my big compressor in my other shop for big stuff, any how this little wounder is loud in a small space but it works really slick today i decided to put my air grinder on it i needed to clean a weed eater part ,any how it worked great considering how much of an SCFM hog my grinder is, ,i realy like CH products always have owned CH stuff and never have been let down. 1000% happy with this unit and iam sure it will serve me for many years to come, tomorrow iam going to start making some other custom blower attachments for it amonge other goodies as well..
i gave this a 4 star as nothing is a 5 star in my books ,mainly due the fact that a 5 star would state that something is Perfect and nothing on the face of the planet is perfect..

Rated 4 out of 5Â by BigShooter1965 great little compressor
Small and light, performs flawlessly add the Campbell Hausfeld brad nailer and you can build like a professional. I bought it for a renovation I was doing on my house, built kitchen and bathroon cabinets with it, installed baseboards with it. Works great!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JHgarden 3 Gal. Horizontal Air Compressor
Using this air compressor to blow out grass, leaves and debris in John Deere Riding Mower. Product makes it easier to clean and prevent buildup around mower belts. Size and low weight makes this compressor easy to move near mower and to store on a shelf when done.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by VietVet I'm Impressed
I read all of the previous reviews of this compressor before I bought it and I'll have to say, so far it has exceeded my expectations. First of all the price is very Very good. Secondly the unit pumps up reasonably fast and operates exactly as advertised. It has good accessories and is perfect for what it's designed to do. It IS a little loud but from reading the other reviews I was expecting it to sound like a jet engine. It's loud but not crazily loud. I'm well satisfied with mine.
