Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jefe Used the tank for another compressor pump
I had an older, low volume Quincy air compressor and the tank was questionable (1983). The old tank became a smoker!
I bought this unit used for peanuts because it was not working. When I took it apart I discovered that the transistor had fried. The transistor is required because the motor is Direct Current (DC). Since it was Chinese, I didn't bother to fix it and scrapped the tank for my Quincy.
I give it a single star because the compressor looks like it had no more than 20 hours of use; everything looked brand new inside. These things should be labeled "disposable." Use it once and they wind up in the landfill!
Our future generations will be liable for our "consumer spending" when our landfills get full!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bobwoodworker Small and Lite
The first things I did was strip off the tire inflation hose and then put a quick connect fitting to the main hose outlet. I originally bought it to use with my caulk gun, but found that the valve lacked the precision needed for fine tuning pressures. Dang. But, it has found a home in my woodworking shop to power my small nailers. It is quite (in relation to my other compressor ) and it is lite and can be easily moved between my shop, garage, and other work areas.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Chuck Arrived with broken housing
Compressor arrived in a suitably heavy box, but with no interior stuffing to prevent moving around. The plastic housing over the compressor has a severe and obvious crack, which probably existing at the time of packing, since there was little in the box that could bang into it. The cracked cover does not prevent me from using the product, and it works as described, although the air does not stay in the tank for long periods (it leaks out in a day).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chuck A very nice product for the value
Have only had a few occasion to use it but it seems to work just fine. However I haven't had a chance to use the nail gun yet because it didn't come with the unit like it says in the owner's manual. It also didn't have the nails, or oil, or Allen wrenches it was supposed to come with. They must have been removed when the unit was refurbished and never put back.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by unhappy this product is small and compact and light
not happy with the description, shipped with tools to air up tires and much to my supprise runs out of pressure before filling up car tires having to wait for the tank to refill again took four tanks each tire. do the math each tire took 20 min each could have went to gas station faster, none the less each tire was only ten pounds under pressure..

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by foothillkustomhotrods decent compressor for small needs
this is the perfect compressor for the average home owner that just needs a source of air. it actually works ok with an impact wrench, but only in short uses because of the 2 gallon tank. I definetily recomend this to anyone that needs a simple compressor, but at the same time dont think you can buy this and start up an auto shop with it

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mike You get what you pay for!!!
When the air compressor arrived the switch to turn the unit on and off was loose and missing one screw.
The unit takes 5 minutes or longer to even fill up the two gallon tank very slow!
The hose that has the attachment for tire fill leaks at the end. I should have known you get what you pay for. The unit was cheap!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nonicname very good
bought a refurbished model,looked brand new,excellent packing with all add ons and handbook. I didn't really need the inflation hose, just use an air chuck on the long hose. the unit is performing well and appears that it will last.
