4 gal. 1.6 HP Side Stack Air Compressor with 8 oz. Synthetic Oil and Dipstick is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good for one year I purchased this compressor and used approximately once per week pumping tires, cleaning parts, etc. At about one year the unit quit building pressure. I replaced several parts but never fixed the problem. Very disappointing! I would not recommend this unit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This product could be outstanding BUT!!! I have had this unit 2 years and I have an on going problem with the unit on start-up. I have to use a 10 ga cable to power the unit & have to plug it into a 20 amp circurt to get it to work correctly. I also have to drain the tanks at first just to get it to start up. Other wise it keeps tripping the thermal switch. Once the motor spins up to speed it is good to go for most of the day. The other problem that I have found is that the pressure switch isn't switching between tanks as it should. When I go and drain the tanks I find 1 totally empty & the other one full.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from On Paper the product is great I purchased the twin stack thinking it would meet all my air compressor needs. I don't use it daily but expect it to perform when I do call on its use. From the first I had trouble just to get it to start/run. Would keep kicking off or not start at all. Required a super heavy power extention cord as well as a 20 amp circuit. Also a disappointment was its failure to work in tandem with my impact wrench to remove lug nuts on my truck! This is why I bought it initially!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good compressor Im a professional carpenter, I bought this to replace a older non oil bath porter cable high output twin tank but was able to repair the porter cable. So this one is in the garage for home use for now. it is quiet with good recovery time and I like the ball valve drains. It is a good compact unit.
