Customer Questions & Answers

What accessories do I need to run this?

Asked by: icthruu13
This compressor is ready to operate directly out of the box. It is equipped with a quick connect to plug a hose into, 2 pressure gauges (1 for tank and 1 for regulator), and a regulator. However, it does not include any hose, tools or other accessories. You would have to purchase any additional hose, quick connects or tools that you require for your tasks.

Its good to paint cars? 2

Asked by: Miguel
While the Powermate Vx 20 gallon air compressor is oil free compressor (best for spray painting), it would be overused in this application if you plan to spray the entire car. We would recommend this compressor if you are spraying small sections or parts.

Customer Reviews

VX 20 Gal. Vertical Electric Air Compressor with Instant Air is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unit broken Unsattissfied Customer...The unit turned on and ran less than 10 seconds and shut off. Turned it off and turned it back on and it only ran for 5 secs. I tried this again and the system no longer turned on. Took back to Home Depot and got a Husky which operates flawlessly. I was disappointed with the power mate unit and was not willing to invest more time with their products after the initial issues I encountered.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value Seems to take a little longer to reach cut off pressure of 150, but otherwise, works very well, and instant lower pressure availability is very handy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase The instant air is great to have when you don't want to wait for the entire tank to fill. It fits nicely in a corner and the wheels make for easy moving. Really have liked this compressor so far and can't wait to find more uses for it.
