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.

Asked by: CNK1
I haven't measured it but its probably about 36 inches from the ground to the handle. I'm 5' 11" and the handle is about belt high. It works good for me.

5.2 Gal. 3.0 HP Electric Single Tank Air Compressor is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 159.

I put the oil in and followed break in procedure then replaced oil with Amsoil synthetic compressor 20W. I had read reviews that some units came with plastic tires that would not hold up but mine came with steel wheels and tires that should deal with any terrain. So far it has been able to run anything I have plugged into it with no trouble except my die grinder. It will run it fine for light jobs but if you lean on it much the compressor will be running almost non stop. I expected this but had to try it, I don't use the die grinder very often. From what I can see so far this unit should last for as long as I will ever need it.

I bought the MAC5200 prior to moving overseas and had it shipped new in the box without testing it. I got to my duty station and set it up, then plugged it in. It ran fine for about 60 seconds and then a puff of black smoke appeared right before the compressor shut off. Now I can't take it back to Home Depot, because they don't have a store located in New Zealand. Shipping it back was not an option either. My only option was to troubleshoot the problem myself. I found corrosion on the centrifugal switch and a blown start capacitor. I ordered the parts from M&M Tool Parts ($72.28) and installed them. The compressor works fine now. I believe that the centrifugal switch was improperly adjusted at the factory, which caused it not to open the start capacitor switch. The start capacitor overcharged and blew. This would not have been that big of a deal if I was back in the USA, because I would have just taken the compressor back to the store. Either way, this is not the kind of quality that I expect from Makita.

Transporting is easier with the solid rubber wheels and fold up handle. It has a convenient covered tool tray. Built in regulator, pressure gauge and 2 air chucks. The handle has a bracket for the hose. Good recovery and not as loud.

I use it for my impact wrench mainly and it had no problem with supplying the air volume needed. So far I am impressed. Only time will tell if it is reliable.

I needed ear protection to stand close to the old compressor. This Makita is quieter, and the sound is not as annoying. I really like the handle with the brackets to hold the hose. It makes it easier to move the compressor around, too. It would be better if it was taller, but then it would be too long when folded down. The pressure builds up quickly. The tank drain is quarter-turn lever, which I like better than others with a knob that must be turned several times to open or close.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would buy again Bought because it was rated number one for the money. A fellow roofer recommended it. Thought about the dewalt but the specs on this one is better. Runs 3 roofing guns at same time. A little on the heavy side but the wheels make it easy to move. Was not enough oil provided so I put in some I had from my other air compressor. Fills fast. Fast recovery. Quiet for the size it is (not as quiet as my little senco). I have had for two roofs and had it in use for 8 hours straight. Would buy again. Time will tell how it holds up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice for professional use After wearing out typical pan cake style compressors, I decided to purchase the Makita. It's performance is far superior to what we had been using. Whether running multiple framing guns nailing off sheathing or installing siding, this compressor performs. I strongly recommend this product as an up grade to the carpenters that what to get it done and quickly.
