Customer Questions & Answers


what is the decible rating on this compressor?
Asked by: Bob
Impossible to answer as no technical information is available. However compared to a 60 gallon 3hp single stage I find it to be 30-40 % less noisy. Makes for a pleasant upgrade.

What is the actual height of the compressor. I know the Puma spec's say 54", but is that the actual height or the shipping height (ie its on a pallet). From one of the images in the reviews and the ladder its sitting next to it looks to be at least 6" shorter then that & where I want to put it that makes a huge difference.
Asked by: ice
The height of the product itself is 54", this is not the shipping height.

40 Gal. 5 HP Electric 2 Stage Air Compressor is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great buy was looking for a better than average compressor to run sanders drill and air grinder for my shop at the house. it is easyer to move by your self than a taller one. it is quieter than i expected. regulated at 90 psi 3/8 hose wide open no fittings takes over a minite to drop to hundred psi. minute recovery. and 5 minutes to fill from emty. pumps more air than any thing i got so it builds air as i use it. so it is not constantly running or barely keeping up. very happy. if your looking for a good compressor this is one. so far awsome.

Big difference, this has the extra efficiency by the second stage to move twice the air. Much less noise than the single stage unit, that's another benefit. Belt guard was a little bend form the shipment, simple fix. Runs fine for me on a 30amp breaker with 10 feet of 10/2 wire. Love the smaller size tank freed up some space in the shop. This was the only 2 stage compressor with a small tank I could find. Over all very pleased with this compressor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good compressor The product itself is excellent. My only complaint is that the belt guard was deformed a little from shipping, and the copper line to the regulator was loose. It also had a kink, so I replaced it. Everything running smoothly now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Puma 40 Gal, had for about 4 months so here is my review. I am a home garage hobbyist and was wanting to find a suitable air compressor to run systems i needed in the garage...i.e. impact guns, sandblasting cabinet, air hammers, da sanders, die grinders, and etc. Whilst i never opted for your big 80 gallon belt driven two stage unit, i did come across this 40 gallon belt driven two stage unit. Let me say this...this compressor will keep up with anything you put on it. My sandblasting cabinet has a rated 15 cfm tip on it (that's the way it came and i haven't changed it) and I haven't had to wait for no pressure to build up. As a matter of fact when the pressure does drop and u feel that and when the compressor kicks on, the pressure is as good as is if the tank was fully charged and u pulled the first air out of it (i.e. it does almost better when it is running...on my 15 cfm sandblasting tip). As far a packaging, i ordered online, took about a week or so to arrive to store (central TX) and when i went to pick up, was not at all displeased at packaging. Bolted to a pallet that had enough bubble wrap to keep anything from dinging it. Will say this though, the height dimensions on website actually came out a few inches shorter...i think they calculate the height of the unit on the pallet. As far as this unit goes, so far so good, would definitely buy again. Will tell you this though: had this little 2 gallon CH oil-less unit and that thing is twice as loud as the puma.. Stay away from oil-less units.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, this thing really blows!!! This is a great compressor for the price. Plenty of capacity to operate air tools and keeps up with my Iwata paint gun and blast cabinet, too. The small tank doesn't tke up too much space and the compessor has the capacity to keep up with everything I have. I hooked up an old eighty gallon tank from my old compressor, so have more than enough reserve now. Time will tell how durable this unit is, but I suspect it will last for years of heavy use. Reasonably quiet for the output and appears to be well built. All that and a lovely blue paint that will not clash with most shop decors!! Oh baby!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compressor The compressor is excellent. It was damaged in shipping, but Home Depot and puma worked together to get the replacement parts I needed to fix the damage. This runs quietly for a compressor of this capability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Performer This is a great little compressor. It has an all cast iron pump, no aluminum crankcase or head. It cycles between 135 and 175 lbs. and runs all my air tools and blast cabinet without a problem. It was easy to install with vibration pads (not included) being shorter and lighter than 60 or 80 gallon units. It's not short on power though being two stage. It suffered minor shipping damage which was quickly remedied by Puma's customer service people. And I must say the Puma representatives are among the nicest people I've ever had the pleasure to deal with. It shipped free to Home Depot where I picked it up. It took the Home Depot staff quite awhile to locate it and get it up front and another quite awhile to get it loaded. They only had one certified lift stacker operator in the whole store. Minor annoyance. I'm very happy with my purchase.
