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

This question is from 5.2 Gal. 3.0 HP Electric Single Tank Air Compressor
Asked by

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.

Answer: 
The rated "air flow" in CFM on this device is 6.5 @ 90 PSIG. You need to find out what your tools' CFM rating is and compare it to the compressor's. If it's 6.5 @ 90 or LESS then you're good-to-go. If it's higher (i.e. 7.0 @ 90) then you'll have problems: either it won't run or it'll run and stop while the compressor builds pressure back up (not good for the compressor over long periods of time).

Answer: 
Yes, especially on cold days or with a tank that is nearly full (both situations are considered "hard starts"and require extra amperage at start up, and both are exacerbated by extension).
Use a heavy gauge extension cord rated for fifteen amps or more, avoid starting the compressor when it's below ten degrees, and drain the air tank after using it and you won't have a problem.

Answer: 
The MAC5200 is rated at 84dB which is oil lubricated. Compared to a oil-less 3gal. compressor that I own and is called a 'Quiet-Air' which isn't so quiet at about 92dB. I've never heard the MAC2400 but if you live near an authorized Makita service center/sales they might have both compressors there that they could fire them up for you and make a decision from there.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 117 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good value Needed a new compressorcompressor. After a month of reading reviews and deciding what I really needed on a daily bases,I decided on the Makita MC5200. I have had it over a month and it has been great so far. It is very quiet compared to many others and my old one. Refill is fast but it is only 5.2 gals. I do wish it was closer to 10 but i have learned how to work with this just fine. I like the compactness of it. Easy to move around although that doesn't happen much. I have a farm but have cut way back on alot of things i did before so didnt feel i needed anything bigger and so far it has done what i need. I would highly recommend this product for those who need to fill tires,blow off medium size items, and run small power tools. It doesn't handle large ones for very long before you have to let it refill. So if you want a nice quiet, compact ompressor you cannt beat this one, especially for the money. Four stars only because size of tank August 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by really nice unit/price point had to buy one for the field so after checking a lot of units i decided on this one primarily for one reason--cfm--cubic feet per minute. this is the primary reason you want an air compressor in the first place if you're a professional. it fills up fast and can keep up a lot better than the most common units at this price point. i've seen them with a lot less cfm's at a higher price. at the time i was also looking for a compressor with overall dimensions that would fit into my 2013 ford fusion trunk. i cut off the hose hooks on the handle so once it folded down it fit snug and still left room for small tool box between unit and the back of the trunk. weight is manageable but could be lighter, with magnesium motor parts maybe. has a storage shallow compartment just above the gauges for your fittings, rags or whatever. once on the ground, you can fold up the handle and it works like a dolly. now i have my truck so i can weld the hooks back on. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality comp. I don't have many hours on it yet, but it works flawlessly. And the quality is great. It charges fast and holds at 140psi. I returned a Dewalt for this one and glad I did. One of the reasons I returned the Dewalt is, it wouldn't start up on a slightly loaded 15 amp circuit. This one seems to have a softer start and runs perfect sharing a 15 amp circuit. It is a little on the heavy side, but it has wheels. And it's a air compressor, it's not going to be lightweight for this size. So, I wouldn't deduct a star for that. I don't foresee any problems, but if I have any I will update my review. April 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Purchase I'm quite pleased with the MAC 5200. Mine came with rubber tires and study steel wheels. So, I have none of the previously reported issues with bent rims, etc. The axle also seems sturdy. The compressor cuts in and out when it's supposed to. It is a little loud; but, not overly so. The large-bore cast piston/cylinder walls that allow for the specified 6.5cfm flow rate @ 90psi make the unit heavy. I knew that going in. With a 50' hose and other items in the accessory compartment, lifting it into and out of my F-150 requires some effort. (I'm going to get some ramps.) A very small amount of oil does make it's way into the air stream. Although I would guess all compressors that require oil have this issue, I'm hoping the amount of vaporized oil decreases after a longer break-in period. Eventually, I plan to put synthetic oil in it to prolong its life. Although I use the compressor primarily in my garage where I have a 20amp circuit, I've run it on a couple of different 15amp circuits without issue. I have yet to purchase and try the compressor with impact or other high-volume tools. I plan to do so in the future. Assuming it does indeed generate 6.5cfm @90psi with a duty cycle of 50%, I foresee no problems with tools that fall within its capacity. I bought the compressor on sale and would purchase again. June 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice compressor Happy with my purchase. Replaced an old 1 h.p. Central Pneumatic that still runs, but i needed something to run an air ratchet wrench and a few more air hungry tools i might find myself needing now. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy with this compressor So far this has been a great compressor. A lot of the reviews that I read mentioned how loud the 5200 is, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that it wasn't that bad. Although it's not typically what I look for in a compressor, the flip up handle, hose wraps, and little storage compartment have really come in handy. For a larger portable compressor, this thing is very easy to move around. May 31, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Very Surprised (NOT in a good way) I bought one, it didn't work right, returned it, bought another (thinking the first must have been a fluke) and it did the same thing... here's what it did. Let me start off by saying I followed the break-in procedure exactly on both units. I would plug it in in my detached garage and turn it on to begin filling. I could hear the motor buzzing, but it was as if it didn't have enough power to push the cylinder. It also did the same thing any time the pressure dropped below the refill pressure. In both circumstances, the trick was to run over to the unit and pull the safety pressure release valve or open the drain valve to completely remove any pressure in the tank. If I was quick enough the unit would start turning over before it tripped the breaker. I couldn't keep doing this, so I just ended up taking it back and getting a 60 gal mobile Husky compressor... never had the same problem with the Husky unit, which was also $60 cheaper. As for the design, I like the Makita much better. It has a little storage compartment to keep small air accessories in and a rack to hold the air hose. Great design (except whatever was going wrong with the motor/cylinder). I talked to someone who had experience with the unit and they said it sounded like an electrical problem in my detached garage. They could be right, Makita isn't known for making low-quality equipment. But, again, I haven't seen the same problem with the Husky unit yet, so I'm happy with my Husky compressor. May 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Choice... I never rate ANY items to highest! I am in technical/quality engineer and always strive for a better. In addition to homeowners, I will recommend this to contractors as well. May 10, 2016
