15 Gal. Portable Electric Air Compressor is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 96.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from China really??? So I read a review and at the time I didn’t look at the date, but it said Made in the USA. So, unknowingly I spent $400 dollars for this unit with the belief it was made in the USA. Nope, this too was outsourced to China. Had I known this, I would have spent half as much and got a Husky even if it may have lasted half as long. Maybe the higher price was for the name, but my last Husky was a great unit.

Suddenly after running for a bit, the pump started to rev up and down, like the power supply wasn't reliable. I checked the outlet, as I was doing so I smelled something hot, like burning electrical. I opened the top of the unit and found that one of the brushes was smoking. I ordered new brushes and installed. The unit ran for about 30 seconds before diving again, overheating the same side brush - even though it was brand new. The rotor has had heat damage, but that would not explain why only one brush had problems. Shoddy design with the sparking brushes exposed thru vent opening in one side of the cover. Although it was designed to keep them cool, it didn't do the job. I've changed the filter on this twice since buying. The filter only keeps the motor's internals free of dust. Replacement motor assembly costs twice as much as the unit, so now the entire thing is trash.

I was going to buy a 30 Gal tank with Cast Iron V Compressor but I went with this one instead. Im able to run my Orbital Sanders and Tools almost continuously and the unit keeps up and its supper quite compared to my pancake compressor. The units stays cool after several hours of continuous run time. Wow Im impressed.
