I had wanted a larger compressor for a while and caught this one on sale. It has met all my expectations.

The unit was loaded on my pickup at your store and was still in it's factory wraping.Your loading dock personnel did an excellent job getting it on my truck.We did not unload unit for over a week till I came back from a trip.When we did unwrap it we found 2 pieces from the top of the compressor were broken (part #160-0266)We have to repair these parts before we can start the compressor and thus unable to write a review. Your loading people didn't damage it I believe it was done in transit to your store. Arthur G. Lang III

I had this compressor for almost 5 years now and it has been great, very quiet for a compressor, keeps up with all my needs at home which include working with a sand blaster, impact gun and ratchets, Aring up anything that need air. Will recommend to anyone needing a compressor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Great performance, looks and value in one package
Could not pass up the Black Friday pricing on this one. It is built by Sanborn (in the business a long time) and seems to be rugged and reliable. It is a good looking compressor as well and compliments my roller tool boxes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SpaCoverInc Definately a nice compressor!
Very quiet compared to the previous compressor we had, (we replaced with the same model, but the old unit had a twin V instead of the twin vertical cylinders and old unit seemed to be noisier). Very pleased with it. It would have been nice if this was available in the stores though and not have to pay $100 shipping. I bought the next smaller unit from the store and it was poorly constructed, the plastic tube to the pressure switch popped out and was not repairable in house). This unit seems to have a metal tube in it's place.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MustangMan Does what I need it to do, easy to setup.
I was able to catch a special sale price for this, hence the high value rating. I selected it based on HD reviews and additional reviews for this model PowerMate on other sites. For me it has the right combination of capacity, PSI and SCM for soda blasting in a home garage - so it's hobby use.
I've not had another compressor so I can't compare noise levels. It's noisy enough that I don't want to be around it while it's running for more than a few minutes, but not so noisy that it disturbs anyone else in the house. Ran it for 30 minutes break-in per the instructions and hooked it up with 3/8" high pressure hydraulic hose running to 1/2" black pipe and a Craftsman regulator. Make sure you have enough steel piping, a cooler or a good water-trap if you need to avoid moisture in the lines

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Comp2011 Efficient air compressor
Needed to replace an old, worn-out compressor of same size and liked the price and advertised features of this Powermate. Perhaps because it is new (?), the pump is annoyingly loud as it fills the tank. The tank also becomes extremely warm to the touch after filling. My old compressor was much quieter and cooler, too, during operation. Still, the Powermate does do what it is advertised to do and I can find no fault with the results thus far.
