Customer Reviews

8 gal. Portable Gas-Powered Orange Air Compressor is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little workhorse This compressor is relatively easy to maneuver around, starts very easily, runs reliably. Its 8-gallon capacity is a bit low for high-flow operations, but the engine keeps up with demand without a problem except that it runs pretty constantly. The engine controls are a bit hard to reach due to the very compact design; you will want to have a long shanked screwdriver handy to get to them when the thing is hot. The owner's manual refers you to the supposedly included engine manufacturer's manual for the Subaru engine, but no such manual (or warranty information) comes with the product. Also, the compressor motor calls for 40-weight compressor oil, which is nearly impossible to find. However it seems to run well on 30-weight or multiweight oil. All in all, a very handy device for those who need air on a job site.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart design, great performance This is by far one of the easyest wheelbarrow style compressors I have ever handled. The 14" neverflat wheel is great.It also offers the perfect pressure cycle. It pressures up to a full 145 PSI and drops to idle. When air is used it will cut in at 120 PSI to cycle back up. Since I often use heavy pressure for tough framing apps ( 115 PSI ) , I can use this unit without a drop in driving power. Due to its compact design the fuel shut off and choke is hard to get to but I can live with that.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The engine is terrible The pump and all of the fittings work great but the engine is terrible. It is harder to start than the old Honda motor, this might also be the reason the pull cord breaks every 2 or 3 months. Now its leaking gas and wont run longer then 5 minutes 6 months into owning it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When Sandy hit town. When Sandy hit town my shop was with out power for 3 days I own Cottman Transmission & Total Auto Care in Stroudsburg PA so in stead of closing and not paying my men I hooked up my generator and this air compressor for the shop to run on. It filled an 80 gal. tank and ran the shop for 3 days with no problem. I love this air compressor it's a keeper!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great concept but.... It's a horrible machine to start in the cold. Takes about 30-45 minutes to get it going. That's a lot of pulls, and as a result the pull cord is becoming frayed after 2 days of use. That's going to be a nightmare as I'll have to disassemble the whole machine to replace the cord. The choke is difficult to reach and requires you bend down or stretch over since the pull cord is a left handed pull and you have to stand away from the choke to pull the cord. I blow out sprinkler systems and this machine is by far the worst I've owned in regards to getting anything done. Each job site is a chore to get going. I'm taking this back and buying the more expensive honda's because this is just too much.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from maint problem Runs great but all gas compressors need a new pull rope occassionally. This one is located between the air tanks and the engine. You have to completely disassemble it to replace the rope. If you are in the middle of a project, you cannot just wrap the rope and pull, due to the inaccessability of the pulley.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT MANUVERABILTY If the pull rope was to break access to repair would be time consuming. The low profile is a huge plus when its being hauled in a pickup - out of sight.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this compressor The compressor didn't last one year . I purchased the 3 year warranty and when I took it back they wouldn't give me a new one . They said they would have to send it to get fixed and didn't know when it would be fixed . They has no care that I had it on a job and i needed it to finish.
