Customer Questions & Answers

Does it come with a hose? If so what length?

The specs. say it comes with an air hose but i cant find any information about it, can anyone verify this? I'm buying a nice long hose regardless but I'm not sure if I should go ahead and get a short one or if it comes with one. Thanks.
Asked by: ezekial
Thanks for pointing this out. The compressor does not come with an air hose but we do offer quite a few different options on We will get this resolved and remove that from the specifications.

8 Gal. Portable Electric Air Compressor is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from First compressor was defective I received my order on time. Unboxed, installed the wheels and the handle. Added the oil and proceded to break in the motor. After running for approximately 10 seconds the motor jammed. Called home depot the next day and they told me to return it to the store and they gave me a discount on the replacement one. However the replacement one came with the gauge broken and the wheels cannot be aligned properly. But at least this one works.

Sorry it was broken when it got to me. but when I open the box the quality looked cheap. I really wanted to try it. I have a Dewalt d55168 for about 15 years and loved it. The belt finally went out. WOW !! So I ended up buying another one from The Home Depot Natomas Ca. By the way they are awesome !! Natomas Home Depot is Numero Uno !!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BEWARE, NOT AS ADVERTISED!! I bought this air compressor based on the specifications listed on Home Depots web site. I received the air compressor today, 4/8/13, and much to my dismay Home Depots specifications do NOT match the specifications listed on the air compressor itself. Home Depot lists the output at 6 cfm at 40 psi, and 5 at 90. The specs on the air compressor list the output at 3.8 at 90. Now I realize that may seem insignificant, however most of the air tools I will be using require a minimum of 5cfm at 90 psi so this is a big deal to me. The air compressor itself appears to be a good quality piece of equipment, and runs quietly and holds air well. The price and shipping were very reasonable, and I received sit ahead of the estimated arrival time. One other gripe, when I unpacked it the plastic housing was cracked. I was able to repair this and it is a minor matter, just be sure to inspect yours very carefully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Jobsite Tool I personally don't care if an item is made in china or the U.S. Usually, if the item is made in China, it's cheaper anyway, so that is better for me. This compressor is manufactured in China and then shipped to customers, so I'm sure that many things could go wrong during the shipment. That being said, everything went perfectly with my order. The compressor is tough, and it isn't as loud as my other compressor that I bought a few years ago. I'm very happy with my purchase and am already looking at buying some Speedway accessories for this fine compressor.
