At what pressure is the compressor supposed to turn off? It should cycle on and off as the air is used. My brand new unit continues running until I cut it off at 200 psig on the tank gauge. I have tried this three separate times by releasing the pressure. I ran the compressor the 30 minute break in period as indicated in the manual.

The cut off pressure is adjustable

I used the compressor for a roofing project and was able to run two roofing guns off it. Do I risk burning the motor out if it runs all the time?

I used the compressor for a roofing project and was able to run two roofing guns off it. Do I risk burning the motor out if it runit all the time non stop?
Asked by: Joe
All motors and mechanical devices have a life expectancy, the more it's used the sooner it will reach it, that does not necessarily shorten the usable hours but the time it takes to reach that point. I would be more concerned if it has to run none stop to keep up, as the compressor motor is not designed for continuous duty operation and heat factors. Give it a break once in a while.

will this air a car tire?

Asked by: kc
Hi KC. It certainly will. We also have inflator that may be more compact like the P737 or P731. The battery and charger will be separate.

Customer Reviews

6 Gal. Vertical Pancake UMC Compressor is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from leaking regulator after one year. Compressor was good for about 1 year. Then the regulator started leaking called ryobi customer service they said I could take it to any home depot to get it sent to their service center. 4 weeks later get a call that it is ready for pickup. Home depot charged for diagnosis even though the compressor was still under warranty. Bring the compressor home and same problem remains. The regulator is leaking air. This was extremely poor service from Home Depot and Ryobi. I am out money and the compressor is still not fixed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent and well made, but loud Very happy with this compressor. I like it's design, portability and ease of use. I do not use it with any air tools, but as a general compressor for an air gun. As warned, it is loud and I must use ear protection. When using it as an air gun, it does cycle on quite quickly. I have a 10 gallon aluminum air tank, and this unit fills it up quite easily. I called Home Depot to compare it with the Rigid. First of all, the Home Depot customer service rep, was very knowledgeable and was able to compare the differences very quickly. The Rigid is cheaper, but less power and a few db's louder. So far, I have no regrets. I would have given 5 stars if it weren't so loud

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ryobi air compressor This compressor has a great design.So easy to carry around and compact for storage. It functions very well,but is on the noisy side. Would definitely recommend this compressor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from compressor Reasonably priced; has been doing the work I want it to do with no issues; Lightweight and portable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ryobi 6 gal compressor The compressor was easy to assemble for use as there was so little to it. Could have used an exploded view of item to tell me where different controls were located instead of me having to find them on my own. A diagram of the NPT fitting would have been easy with a life size illustration of it. As there are many different fittings, the term NPT is not universal for all of us. The term universal is used and I thought that meant the on board connectors would take any male fitting instead of the one NPT fitting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best bargains in a long time Besides the low price - I got it for $149.00 - I was surprised by the weight of the box! Unpacked and read the straight-forward instructions. Even if you are a pro with brad guns and nailers, it is advisable to read the separate booklet for the compressor (there is a 30 minute break-in time required for the compressor before use, although the average person will want to get right down to business!) Each gun also comes with a separate operating booklet and 500 brads or staples accordingly; lubricant is also supplied. I used the break in time to acquaint myself with the system, set the pressure and put down an entire LUAN floor in my kitchen in (for me) record time. Definite thumbs up on this kit, and it would make a great addition to anyone's tool collection. The compressor is loud (like any compressor), so use ear protection in enclosed spaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive. Compact, and Convenient Unfortunately I bought this unit when it just came out so I paid more than I should have. I like the compact size of the vertical design. When my roofers gasoline compressor wouldn't start I was able to run two roofing nail guns at once off this compressor. I'm not sure if that's good for it as it may overheat. But it held pressure steady at 100 psi with two roofers firing away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design and easy to carry We needed a compressor to clean our racing RC trucks at the track. This compressor has been perfect for providing good compressed air with quick refill from pancake design. The best part is how much easier it is to carry compared to all other designs. Very happy with purchase. Wish Home Depot kept in stock and I didn't have to order.
