Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 135 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Machine... Although I am what most would call an "Amateur Do-It-Yourselfer", I do have a solid understanding of Mechanical Engineering. And this machine... is very well Engineered. I bought it days ago and have already used it for three jobs. In terms of noise level, it blows away my father's old Porter Cable (pun intended). It's also built like a tank, which is both a pro and con. One gets the feeling that if you took good care of it, you may just last just have it for the rest of your life - That said, I hope you have a strong back in your latter years. Thankfully, the handle is just as solid as the rest of this machine. Would I buy it again? In a heartbeat. July 4, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is a great compressor for its class, however, if you are a DIYer or perhaps a contractor with limited needs for a compressor, the MAC700 will probably do just as well. The size of this one just makes her a little awkward to move around. The extra CFM and tank size offered by this model wont make a big difference in jobs such as trim and hardwood installation unless you are really gunning it... or double gunning it... so keep that in mind. Otherwise, fit and finish is great and the noise level is truly bearable as compared to some of the pancake style compressors. This tool is quite a joy to have around! The only thing I don't like is the fact that the air filter protrudes beyond the roll cage. February 22, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good package Excellent unit. Best feature is it is noticeably quieter since it runs at half the RPM compared to most units. Cycles well between 120PSI and 100PSI. Proven reliable running 3.25" coil framing nailer. Even capable of running an average CFM 1/2" impact gun. (removed wheel nuts from a CASE skid steer rusted on for months problem) Note it is not light weight at just under 85lbs but appears to be built to last. September 23, 2008
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hands down, excellent compressor It's a quiet, and very powerful unit. Keeps nice, even pressure during recovery (which is awesomely quick!). The only downside is not just the weight of the unit but rather how awkward it is to carry. Other than that it's absolutely great compressor worth every penny. April 16, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing unit This little compressor is big on performance. Get it on sale and you have a great little unit that can run pneumatic tools easily. Tank refill times are short. It is relatively quiet compared to a lot of other units out there. The only downside is the weight (around 70 lbs), otherwise a hands down great buy. January 26, 2012
