4 Gal. Portable Electric Air Compressor is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 38.

It worked nicely for about 2 weeks then seized up. I checked the oil on it regularly so things like this wouldn't happen! Piece of junk. Buy something else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid So Far, But Needs 20 Amp Circuit Thought I was doing something wrong though I was careful about following set up and break in instructions. Bottom line, she'd clearly start slow and cold and likely as not - would trip the built in overheat switch. Tried re-setting and powering up, but the switch would trip again. If I released all the pressure that was already in the tank, it *might* run correctly and build up to full pressure. Long story, I know. Friend suggested that even though the compressor is rated for 15 amps, I might try a 20 amp circuit. Problem solved. Been performing great since then, but I had to learn a lesson first.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Compressor won't start without help It worked fine for a couple months, but then it wouldn't start and would trip the reset switch. I have found that if I flip it on for 3 seconds then off and repeat about 10 times it will warm up enough to start. Once it starts the first time, it will run all day no problem. A person shouldn't have this kind of headaches with a new compressor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from junk This compressor is junk, it will not work in the cold, takes forever to get started in the morning. while using it, it will not kick on until it is to low on air to shoot nails, then you have to wait for it to fill back up. for the size of this compressor, that should not be happening. i do not recommend this compressor at all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very finicky, even in summer. In winter, should only be used in South Florida. Weak product. Waste of money. Sometimes it runs with no problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good overall compressor Overall this compressor is good No major issues so far. The Power/hose adapter configuration in the back is a bit to be desired... Additionally the air bleed off valve was a bit touchy and tents to stay open. I have use mainly for smaller end less demanding projects.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product This replaced a cheap chinese knock off i had been using, and beats my old one hands down. I've had this for a couple of weeks, and keep it in my garage. I live in MN, and my garage is insulated but unheated. It has been in the teens and 20's outside, which means it it in the 20's or 30's in my garage. I have a leaky tire on my car which needs regular inflation, and this compressor has never failed to run in the cold. I think the key is if you must use an extension cord, make sure it is heavy enough gauge. Mine is a 10 gauge that I made myself, and i hAve the unit connected to a 20A circuit. As for running nailers, this thing is powerful, relatively quiet (especially compared to oil-free models) and compact. Recharge time is less than a minute. My only gripe, and the reason for not giving it 5 stars is because the handle is too close to the regulator valve, and makes it uncomfortable to carry. Not a problem if you have smaller hands, but I have big hands and this is an issue; the regulator valve rubs on my knuckles when I carry it unless I reposition. Good price, good value. Worth it to get a name brand that has some warranty. Don't be tempted to go cheap, especially with compressors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the best, not the worst I bought this compressor - used - several years ago. It hasn't let me down, but as other reviewers state, it doesn't perform well in the cold. I've been able to start mine at below freezing on a 20A circuit. After a few moments, it fires well. The thing that annoys me the most though is the sound. This sucker is LOUD. Yes, it will run multiple nail guns all day long, but you'll be deaf after your done. I would look for a quieter model, a brand that's Green and starts with an M.
