Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DQcowboy Just what I wanted in a smaller compressor.
This unit is Small enough to move around easy and big enough to do the jobs I needed done. Powers the finish nailer from Homedepot just fine. Only drawback is the NOISE. I must ware earplugs, but earplugs are not that much of a problem. Ordering through the internet and shipping to the store was simple and easy, will do that again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MacM Exactly fits my needs
Got this for my wife (oh sure) to keep her tires pumped up to the right pressure. She loves her car and Mrs. independent didn't want to have to wait for me to keep things tip top. Also, it has plenty of capacity for any little jobs I might possibly want to borrow it for.

Great value for a small, portable, compressor with enough power to operate hundreds of tools. I used to pull around a bulky 20 gal compressor loaded with thick rubber hoses, what a chore. Now this little sweetie just rides on the back of my cart to the job. The price I paid is a real value for the quality of the compressor; snatch one if you get the chance!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DP So far so good
Good price it works like it said would. Fill a truck tire in minutes. It will run hand tools but not great. If it lasts it will be a good investment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wolf7669 Great starter compressor
This compressor will work flawlessly as long as you read the instruction manual, i.e. - do the break-in, depressurize and drain the tank after each use, use thread tape, etc.
Only complaint is that on the unit I received, some of the screw holes for the motor's black plastic cover were stripped. No clue if it was from the remanufacturing or the 1st owner, but it's no biggie. The compressor works great with no leaks.
P.S. - Yes this compressor is fairly noisy, but all oil-less compressors will be. They run at higher RPMs than oil compressors so they will generate more noise.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NautisD Not good
I have installed 800 feet of base and used twice for spray paint. The air compressor started making sounds as if some sort of piston was about about to blow...screeching!! I thought..uh oh.. and sure enough something inside blew and now there is no air being compressed.
Done. Dead. Not working.
Also, it is so loud that the neighbors can hear when it is running...deafening almost.
It does not hold much air, so be careful...after about 5 shots of the nail gun make sure you still have enough air to shoot that next nail! Otherwise, you will end up shooting the nail half way in and you cannot set the rest of it with a hammer.
Finally, I had to replace the hose attachment after half of my use, as the gasket wore out and would not seal the air going to the house.
Total disappointment. Look to DeWalt or Makita instead.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MechMike Total piece of junk
This unit never worked right out of the box. Air regulator leaked at certain pressures, pressure switch was very erratic, causing compressor to start on high head pressure, which then broke the drive belt after only 5 uses. No way to replace belt without major teardown. All components were cheap junk. Spend your money on another brand.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Nice features, enough power for an air tool, very good value
Nice very large dial on front- easy to read. Easy to use ballcock drain valve instead of the more difficult screw type valve. Pumps to 155 psi exactly as advertised, but slowly drifts down to 140 psi, where it holds at least an hour or so. No oil, so am wondering how many hours it can last, but if I get a few years out of it I will consider it a bargain. Tools are very cheaply made and break easily, but I considered them to be a free bonus. Nice and light with big rubber feet. Compact and easy to carry.
