Customer Questions & Answers

Question for anyone who OWNS this compressor: Does it 'trip' your 15 Amp circuit breaker?

I know its stated 'draw' is 13.2 amps, but just wanted to hear from some Owners, Thanks!
Asked by: NightSky
I've never had it kick a 15A. When I first bought it, I had an issue with it tripping it's internal breaker due to using a "standard" outdoor extension cord. Bought a 12/3 cord and have never had an issue since. Great unit.

Will this compressor power an impact wrench for use on compact tractors and related equipment?

I plan to use this for tire inflation and removal of parts (mower blades, tiller blades) and tires on my subcompact tractor. I want to know if it has the air flow to provide sufficient torque to remove the bolts on this kind of equipment.
Asked by: Anonymous
Tim the answer is no. While there enough pressure and stored volume of art the compressor will not stay up with most industrial air tools. They are great for up to 3 nail guns and inflating tires but are not a replacement for a true 3hp compressor. These are well built units that will stand up to contrition site abuse.

Is this MAC5200 as quiet as the Makita MAC2400?

Is there a decibel specification for this unit. I am also considering the MAC2400 which is rated at 79dB which is a large selling point for my shop.
Asked by: Anonymous
This unit is quiet for the type of compressor it is but I would not like to listen to it all day inside with me.

5.2 Gal. 3.0 HP Electric Single Tank Air Compressor is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 133.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from DESIGN NEED MORE WORK. POORLY BALANCED AND TO HEAVY At this point I'm going to keep this compressor but the general form factor of the unit is poor. I think the quality is good but the balance is way off. It's way front heavy. You have to lean it way back to get it to a balance point. If you had to pull it up a flight of stairs, you may have to have someone on the other side of the compressor to do that. I think Makita knows this because they've provided a front handle. If they would have put the tank under or over the compressor and used aluminum for the tank and the frame it would have been a much better design.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Makita missed one very important thing I bought this compressor and like it. The one thing Makita left out of the papers is a picture of the unit with an arrow to each item mentioned in the owners/startup manual. It has a parts breakdown sheet that is useless to an everyday owner. Things that Makita did not give a clue to where it is located are...... Pressure switch unloading valve, on/off switch. where to add oil to crankcase, drain cock valve, oil filler plug, air filter, thermal overload protector manual reset, etc., etc. This oversight could be corrected with one page in the manual. A picture with the things mentioned in the owners manual has been included with every tool I have purchased. Yes I called Makita and was told the picture I ask for was not available.

This compressor delivers enough air and has some nice features, but overall, I think it's a miss. Positives are the dashboard with dual ports, grip handles, and easy lever drain. Drawbacks are that it is loud (especially for being oil lubricated), heavy, and poorly balanced. Pulling or pushing the compressor by the flip-up handle is awkward, like it was designed for a very short person. It is almost easier to just carry it. Also, the accountant-inspired (cheap) on-off switch catches on my clothes when I lift the compressor in and out of my truck.

I know there are a lot of nice reviews on this product and I agree with most of them concerning nice features. However, I just bought this compressor and it has less than an hour of use and now the motor won't start. It just sits there and hums. I have read other reviews and there are several describing the same problem. I discovered that if one drains the tank to having no air pressure, it will start and run up to full speed. But as soon as one closes the valve and the tank gets up to about 30 pounds of pressure, the motor bogs down and stops. I'm returning it today. I need dependability more than nice features. I can't be on a job site messing with equipment that won't perform. I just need equipment that will perform like it's supposed to.

It is easy to move around, has a nice storage compartment by the pressure gauges and the handles are much more sturdy than I was expecting. I also like how the handle folds down when storing the compressor. I bought this to use at work but would consider buying this for my personal use if my other compressor ever goes out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well worth the money Only Drawback to this is the plastic tires.... Works good and Quick recovery. Run 2 Framers No Problem. Best to Hook it directly to the pole. they don't recommend the use of Extension cords. Used a 25 ft 12guage Extension cord to Keep it out of the rain and it worked fine.

If you don't need too much air at once say for a sander or grinder, drill, then this unti should be fine... if you need a little more than, you should probably get a bigger unit... no perfect world yet. But it does very well, fast to recharge, not that noisy. Well built.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makita portable air compressor. This is a very light weight piece of equipment and easy to move. It handles both of my framing air nailers with no problems and I really like the ball valve that you blow out the tank with. It'' so much better than a pit cock valve.
