Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GO63050 Bought a nailer, needed a compressor
Doing a basement remodeling job and bought a nailer. Needed something lightweight to power it. Wasn't sure when I got it if it would work with my nailer, but it does. I can drive 5 3" nails before it needs to kick back on. Low noise level. You do have to check the oil level, but that is easy with the site glass and adding when needed is a breeze too. I wouldn't think this would be something a contractor would want, but for a DIY'er needing to handle jobs around the house, this is a good bet. It's more portable than most and again, its pretty quiet, so using it in the basement won't interfere with noise levels upstairs. I haven't tried driving 100 nails in a row with it yet, but its done everything I've needed so far.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Arky Good qyality for the money.
I was surprised how well this works compared to my old one. The old one ran constantly when in use, and I would have to stop and wait for it to get enough pressure all the time.
This unit keeps enough pressure that I can use it without having to wait for it to air up. But, it still runs a lot when in use. They both had small tanks, so that's expected.
The tools that came with it are pretty cheap, but useful. I did, however, have to replace the hose already, out of necessity, the threads broke on one end.
Overall this is a pretty good for the money.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MrFixit This compressor is fine for small jobs.
If you want a small compressor to do brad nailing for home trim work its a great deal from a functional standpoint. Using for blowing up tires and such is a given. Not enough scfm however to push anything else like a sander or frame nailer or even moderately medium duty air tools. My biggest issue with this product is it is the most moisy compressor I have ever used. Not good if you do lots of in house work. Noise will drive you to deafness. Took it back for that reason and chose to go with a much more expensive quite unit. Gentron GC 4406 I ordered for $250 delivered from Sams delivers 4.4 scfm at 90 psi which is plenty for inhouse and garage use PLUS. They claim that this unit operates at 52 db which is the level of a casual conversation but we will see....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Billiam Good compressor for the price
I purchased this compressor to use with a finish nailer and it worked great! it quickly fills up in about 20 seconds after turning on and holds for about 8 nails before the motor turns on again for a short time. The noise of the motor is average for a compressor. This is the best price around for this size and power. I also purchased a Husky 5000W generator this year and was just as satisfied. I think Husky is my new choice for tools and equipment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OKCMike Great Unit For Tractor Tires and Most Home Jobs
Searched everywhere for a carry unit that could also handle large rear tires for medium size tractors. Small units just couldn't keep up. Large units no problem but difficult to carry to work site. This unit was fantastic. Tire filled up quickly and unit never quit pumping a lot of air, even when also filling the tank. All the included accessories were a bit plus. Even teflon tape! Super unit and not loud at all compared to competition.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rustyboy overall a good unit for small jobs
So far this unit has done all that I could ask of a small compressor. It can drive 15 - 2.5" finish nails before recharging the tank and is light enough to carry up and down stairs with no problem. The hose and accessories that come with it are real handy too. The only problem is that the compessor to tank tube is not shielded. It can be very hot if the compressor runs alot, and the fins can be damaged easily.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Princess Great Tool, Great Price
Bought this compressor for little jobs around the house. I looked at many compressors in this category and this one impressed me the most. The main thing that I really liked was the fact it was oil lubricated. With tthis in mind you're assured moving parts that need lubricaiton will get lubricated. And, this tends to attribute to machines with moving parts lasting longer than those that are not oil lubricated.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dadad13 good value
descent for the money.. runs my trim gun fine and even my senco framer on occasions for light duty shots. but be carefull ... oil that is shipped with unit is good for the ten minite continuous run break-in and should be changed prior to operation., lots of metal particulates if you look after break-in. changing after breakin will increase longevity..
