If using a generator I would suggest using one with a pure sine wave output. These are generally a little more expensive, but will not damage sensitive electronics.

Answer: 
All signs point to yes, this compressor is rated somewhere around 12.5amps I believe, under the 15 amp mark, one of the nice things for those who suffer from 15 amp circuits and always throw breakers on start-ups from other similarly sized compressors. It doesn't even dim the lights in my garage, and I run on a 20amp circuit.

Answer: 
Yes, it is wall mountable, but you need to consider the following things:
- It is very heavy at 52 lbs, so shelf hardware needs to be very strong to support it.
- Mounting it on a shelf makes the regulator difficult or impossible to see in its default position.
- You need to build a fence on the shelf so that the compressor does not vibrate off the shelf.

Answer: 
I suspect it would be with a bit adapting. The base has metal strap legs with rubber cushions underneath. I bet one could bolt the unit to a shelf through the legs and secure it at the wall this way. if you look at pictures of the unit I think you could determine the feasibility of this for yourself.

Answer: 
You could custom mount this to a wall, but there is no included provision for mounting. You could probably install a sturdy shelf and then bungee cord the unit on the shelf so it does not vibrate off. I would not put it any higher than waist height or so for safety.

2.6 Gal. 2 HP Portable Electrical Hot Dog Air Compressor is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 164.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little compressor Opened shipping box at store, absolutely no damage of any kind. Brought home and followed start up/break in directions and several days later put it to work with a brad nailer. Works fine, reasonably quiet and plenty of psi! Would be nice if t was 20lbs lighter. Option to add wheels would be nice.

Ordered this compressor online from HD, it arrived 1 week later, no damage. After break-in the compressor had an air leak, the pressure switch would cycle on after 15 minutes of no use. Sprayed soapy water but no leak could be found or heard. I can live with this . The compressor stays in my garage, never left out in the weather. After the warranty expired the compressor would not build over 60 psi, it just stayed running. So I took the compressor head off to find both the inlet and exhaust plates bad. This is where it gets interesting, The owners manual shows the unit assembly and part numbers so I ordered the parts for the compressor rebuild. Everything except the inlet seat is correct. I sent back the wrong seat 3 times then called a Mikita Authorized Service Center. They could not figure out why I kept getting the wrong part. I took the inlet seat to work and re-built the reed and seat myself. I also found my air leak, the tank check valve was not sealing correctly. I took this to work and machined the brass seat correctly. Reassembled the compressor and now it fills faster then new. It also holds air for four days before the pressure switch kicks on. Now I have the compressor I wanted when I bought it.

I bought this with high expectations to power a floor nailer, and it didn't let me down. Not once did I have to put work on hold so that the tank could fill. It is solid, well-built, and super quiet. One can easily talk over it even if it is right next to the conversation. The tank fills up quickly. It will go from completely empty to full in about 1 minute 45 seconds and will fill a partial tank in 30 seconds. It is a bit heavy and top-heavy at that. So, if you plan on hauling this around it needs to be tied down. Makita (usually) makes fantastic tools and this is no exception. Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very solid air compressor... This compressor is oil-based, so it requires adding the compressor oil (included) and allowing it to run for 20 minutes with the tank valve open to break in the compressor unit. But that is quickly accomplished and after that, it is ready to use. I found the compressor to provide plenty of air volume/pressure and it is quiet (as compressors go). I usually like to point out one shortcoming, but I really don't see one with this unit. It's been great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Switch issues Owned this compressor for about 6 months and have only a few hours use on it. Now, it doesn't turn on and looking at online blogs see that this appears to be an ongoing problem with this model. Under warranty but still a pain to have to take it to the repair center. Luckily I have other compressors to use. I was thinking of replacing one of my older twin tank compressors with a twin tank Makita but now I'm more than a little hesitant.

Like all of Makita air compressors this one is strongly built and I'm sure will last many years. I purchased 5 or 6 of them in various sizes at my job ,they all have greatly outlasted the cheaper " Pancake" models we all have relied on over the years. This unit sets on my indoors work bench (Another larger one in the garage) it is as quiet as they say it is and again I liked the idea of a compressor with oil lubrication . After the two hour break in ,I followed directions and drained the break in oil out and put royal purple synthetic compressor oil in it ( available at Amazon) it runs with no vibration ,I'm not kidding ,partially because of well engineered rubber feet and its high quality design and manufacturing. The carry handle works great it is heavy and if you are going to lug it up a ladder eat your cherios . My advice after several years of buying air compressors (worked 53 years and I'm now retired) if you can afford a little more buy any of the Makitas ,,,high quality,dependable,quieter,long lasting
