For this to be a five star it should come with a better drain! Just add the $5 pieces to the price of the equipment. To make it even better a ball valve would be nice.
As for the overall performance, so far so good. I have sanded and painted a car and it keeps up with relative ease. It is pretty loud when in a garage but what do you expect?
It did not come with enough oil in It as well, I guess it was just enough so oh don't burn it up if you start it before getting some more.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kersk035 Manufacturer won't stand behind product
I purchased this air compressor about 2 years ago to replace one which was around 30 years old and was getting tired. This one has been used only in a hobbyist application. Has not been used for auto body or any other extremely strenuous use. A few days ago I noticed it was vibrating slightly more than usual. I took the head off to find one of the reed valves had broke. I contacted the company to see what they could do. They said a reed valve wasn't available to purchase separately, I had to purchase the entire valve plate, which was $55, plus $11 for shipping and $11 for handling. So close to $80 to get my unit working again. The company won't stand behind the product. I asked to talk to a manager, got her voicemail. Should have kept the old tired iron I had, at least it pumped up.

This air compressor is really affordable for the home hobbyist and at home mechanic. The 60 gallon air tank is a large enough holding tank so the pump is not constantly running while you are working. It's very nice to have a compressor that goes to 155 psi. It kicks on about 125 psi so you never get low on air. When I followed the break in procedure on the pump I had the drain cock fully open in the bottom and as I ran it for 1/2 an hour it still kept almost 30 psi it it the whole time. This does run off 220 though and there is no plug so it must be hardwired in.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RickB Poor quality motor
This seemed like a reasonable price for a hobbyist user, but I was wrong. My motor is about to go out. It surges first going really slow and then it goes faster than normal. The sound changes pitch (speed of compressor motor) often. It sometimes sounds like it is about to stall. Not sure when it's going to die completely, but I expect it any day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SawDust527 Great Compressor
I haven't used this compressor very much yet but it is very quit and fills the tank in 6 min. I had goofed when I first hooked up the air separator/oiler and didn't realize the the oil dispersed (adj wide open) filling the hose with oil. I then just had the 3/8" air hose open with nothing on it and the compressor kept up with the air flow. I ordered both at the same time. Works great, wish I would have invested in it years ago. Going to go out and make some SawDust now.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ausry So Far So Good
I've only had this compressor for a couple of weeks now. But So Far So Good. My old compressor went out just as I had made a commetment to build some cabnets. I was waiting for it to get here so I could get started and time was getting short.I ran this compressor for the 30 minutes they recomended as I was putting the fittings on it just as the 30 minutes was up I closed the cut off valve I had just installed and the drain plug. Haven't look back, I used my nail guns and it hardly ever cut on and when it did it fill back up quickly. after finishing the cabnets. I sprayed 4 light coats of paint on them, it ran my spray guns with little effort. It is also the quitest compressor I've ever heard. So, even though I've only had it a couple of weeks I think I have given it a fair work out so far and I am very happy with my purchase. Time will tell.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MCSav Not for "Industrial" use, will not hold up.
After 7 months of daily use our unit will not start hot (after running a while). Pittiful air cleaner set up. If you are looking at using this for an "industrial" application as the name impies, I would recommend buying something else. Our unit does not work now and as an industrial use product is not covered under the warrantee.

Good choice for the home mechanic/hobbyist. Only one I found that is rated @155lbs. Cuts down on cycle times. It is a bit noisey. I didn't give it 5 stars because it takes a bit long to build up to pressure. Otherwise a nice unit.
