Rated 2 out of 5 by Showed up with Big Air Leak Product performs well, but leaks air continuously from a fitting. We tried to tighten to no avail. This shows poor quality control on the manufacturer's end. Not a giant issue, but I still need to get a service person out to fix a brand new product. Not happy. January 2, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Watch out for cheap aluminum tubing! Look at the picture of this unit. See that copper tube connecting the motor to the tank? On newer models that has been switched to aluminum tubing as a cost-saving measure. Ours sheared off after one month of commercial use. Looking at the broken tubing, it was incredibly cheap and flimsy feeling for commercial grade. Luckily we had our old compressor still and were able to scavenge the copper tube from it. This is a strong compressor otherwise. If you purchase one, and see that aluminum tubing, start looking for a copper replacement piece because it will not hold up to steady usage. October 1, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by do not buy I didn't have it 3 years yet and the pump seized up. These were not 3 hard working years, the hardest being redoing my truck last year. The pump is under warranty, but I pay labor. I'd rather put the money into the IR like I wanted in the first place. Anybody want to buy a used compressor with a bad pump October 29, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by i,m happy this product save you time and money and it has the power you need for most home garage uses.i can run my inpact wrench with constant 90 psi and it doesn't lose power,even when holding the trigger continuously for several minutes.i even use this compressor for my larger sand blaster and it holds up just fine,and that uses a lot of air.this compressor is very quiet from the one i had before and it's very easy to hook up and maintain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product I have to say a bit sceptical I was when i decided to buy this compressor ,but after the purchase i am glad i spent the money .This thing is a beast,it supplies enough air to run my da sander for hours at a time with breaks enough to change paper without a problem.I love it and I will recommend my friends get one.I seriously dont think it can run out of air.
