6 Gal. Oil-Free Pancake Compressor is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 81.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Nailer I've had this nailer for over 3 years now, and I've never had it jam on me. It drives 3/4" nails just as well as it drives 2" nails. Depth adjustment is easy, as is loading nails into the magazine. Great buy, you won't regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool I borrowed this tool from a cousin and I liked it. I look for the price and I couldn't find a more inexpensive place. I bought it and it's been working great since then. Can't go wrong with Hitachi Pneumatic Tools

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good concept but disappointing I do finish carpentry professionally and this unit could not keep up with a couple of finish guns. I burnt it up just after the warranty expired. I have read a lot of similar bad reviews. I expected more from Hitachi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product; Lacking Info Buy this product if you want to confidently install crown molding, door trim, door jambs, window trim, fascia boards, soffits, siding trim (e.g., 1x6 pine), and solid- or laminate-hardwood flooring. The Hitachi EC510 works very well for those applications. Do not expect this product to adequately power a professional-grade paint-sprayer, a texture hopper-gun, or high-torque pneumatic tools; get a higher-CFM compressor for those applications. I've been using the Hitachi EC510, with my Hitachi 15 gauge and 18 gauge nail guns, to install soft- and hard-wood materials of .25"–1.5" thickness: pine crown-molding, casings, baseboards, and jambs; solid walnut paneling and chair rails; and so on. I am very happy with the results! My rating is 4.92 stars because of a minor flaw by Hitachi and a major oversight by Home Depot. . . . HITACHI'S MINOR FLAW: The instruction manual is difficult to traverse because it's poorly outlined and written in very fine print. HOME DEPOT'S MAJOR OVERSIGHT: No CFM rating listed. (The CFM ratings for the Hitachi EC510 are 2.8 CFM @ 40 PSI and 2.0 CFM @ 90 PSI.) . . . Please... please... please! List the CFM specs for every air compressor you sell! It's probably the most important task-specific spec. For instance, the Hitachi EC510's CFM is only adequate for use with one drywall texture hopper-gun: the Wal-Board Tools "Texture-Pro 200." And that's pushing it. (Wal-Board says the gun requires 2.4 CFM @ 90 PSI.) Many of us are looking for a compressor for specific tasks; if it doesn't put out enough CFM, then we can't (or shouldn't) use it for our power tools, paint-sprayer, texture-sprayer, and so on. So, please supply customers with the CFM rating for each air compressor you sell. Everything else you do is terrific! Thanks. (-:{

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do Not Buy I am a commercial/ residential cabinet installer. I did not even take this compressor to work and yet it failed me with a week or so of use. I lost the receipt, and chose to fix it myself. I have had to weld one of the compressing valves shut just to make the piece of junk ....useable? I still peek out at 105 psi and have to shut it of before the motor overheats. I do not write reviews on any products, however, this product was the biggest waste of my money and truly deserved it. Save those receipts kids!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you have a choice. All of my nailers and routers are Hitachi and You cant go wrong with them. This is another winner from Hitachi and Ive used them all and this one works like its supposed to. It doesn't jam its really boring in that there's no surprises,it just keeps working. I highly recommend this nailoer to anyone needing dependable tools.
