Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dprpl Good with some issues
Have owned this product for about 3weeks. Excellent shape for being reconditioned. No scratches, nicks on it. Pumps up fast and hold PSI well. Noisy. Heavy but I carry it with the handle just fine. I'm not a contractor. I'm a weekend warrior who will use this to finish my basement, build a deck. Only negative .... when draining the tank, the air coming out is dirty. I've drained the tank twice and it's getting cleaner. I drain the tank into an old towel to collect the dirt. Not sure if this is oil bypassing into the air tank at pump up. I will contact HD to investigate. Ok, second negative ... there was no owners manual or warrenty info with the compressor ... once again I will contact HD. You may want to inquire about this before purchase.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by beejorn rusty and signs of wear
box came with the compressor, but all the fittings and screws are rusty, and it shows sign of wear, so it is not something I would expect when you get something which is reconditioned. I would expect it to be in like new condition if there were wear marks on anything I would have expected them to change it out. Also the warranty on this compressor is only 1 year compared with 3 years if you get the new one. I did not see that in the online information and it would have made a big difference in the purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CasualUser Rigid 4.5 Gallon Twin Stack Tank Air Compressor
Even though I knew the compressor weight was 70lbs, I was still suprised by how heavy it was. Overall I really like the compressor. I like the on/off switch, the tank drain, the easily adjustable pressure regulator, the dual outlets, and carry handle. I plugged the compressor into a 15A outlet and didn't blow the breaker (one of the things I was concerned with). Other than that, I haven't had the opportunity to really use it much so will have to see how it performs over time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tano This is what a reconditioned tool should be!
This was one of my better experiences buying reconditioned tools from HD. Truly the condition I expected the item to be in, Like new, versus the “used “ condition of other purchases. The compressor worked perfectly and was just what I needed for the Bostitch floor nailer I am using. As you would expect, this baby is heavy, so keep that in mind if you need to carry this far or up and down stairs, but short of a pancake compressor, they are all heavy. I like the double air fittings which is a nice feature since I am using a finish nailer at the same time that I use the flooring stapler. No need to keep switching tools. One really cool feature is the tank drain; they routed both tanks to a single valve up front in an easy to get to location, no excuse not to drain the tank. I am very please with this purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cowboy This product had broken parts when received
I received the compressor about a month ago,I opened the box del. by UPS and noticed that the right side of the pump/motor assembly was not attached to the frame.I called Home Depot and told them about this and ordered an isolation mount that was the wrong part, what I need is the cast metal cover on the right side of the pump/motor assembly that attatches to the isolation mount. Is ther any way I can have this sent to me?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by matsayswhat Definitely a "refurb"
The unit I got was definitely refurbished... and had been used quite a while before it was refurbished, as the tanks have sun fading on them.
That said, it appears that all of the components that matter are brand new, and I was able to pick it up for about $200 shipped, which is nice. My brother has their 5 gallon unit with wheels and it's been great for him at work, hopefully this one will do the same for me.

Manual says no extension cords. That's exactly what it means. I needed to try one, and the unit would not operate. If you loose any amperage in the cord, it won't run. So, I tried a 100 foot air hose, they leak air at both ends, so use plumbers joint tape, it's already added to the more expensive compression fittings.
It's easy to build a roller base for this.

Came in on time. Well packaged. It was reconditioned very well. I have used in with finishing nailers. Works just right. Easy to drain the tanks. I will be using it more extensively in the future and will report back if problems develop. Right now I'm very pleased. It is a bit heavy and loud enough to get your attention. My cats were not pleased.
