Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SatisfiedCustomer Ultralight, well built, ready to go out of the box.
Just received my unit. Size and weight great for us older guys. Used it today to top off tires in (4) cars @ 32psi and (1) truck @ 35psi. Vehicles were neglected, some as low as 15psi. Truck was @ 20psi. Had a 20 ft hose 1/4." Took 1 hour (or 3min/tire) not too bad.To me the size and weight made it so easy to carry around and store, the time it took was acceptable. If you have a truck tire @ 50psi and 75 ft of hose.....forget it. Great for pin nailing, or using it for cleanup. definitely will not replace your 4cfm nailer comp.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Anonomoose123 More powerful than you would think!
I've had this compressor for a few years now and it's been great! I've used it for everything, and it's handled everything I've thrown at it like a champ! I've used it with a framing nailer, finish nailer, staplers, blowing attachment, and tire inflator. It is limited in one respect, that it runs out of air quickly and has to come on a lot, but that's a small price to pay for the portability and craftsmanship of the compressor. This is only a limitation if you're using it in a high production situation, but for a homeowner doing diy projects it's perfect! I've used it for framing and unless you're using it constantly for a lot of quick framing it is fine. You can't fill a lot of tires in a row without waiting for it to refill, but for a car or two it's fine. You can use the blower but only for a minute until it runs out of air. You could probably use it constantly for brad and finish nailers. You can't use it for impact wrenches, sanders, paint sprayers, and other auto equipment tools, they need a much bigger tank and more constant pressure. One of the nicest things about this compressor is the aluminum tank. It won't rust, so you don't have to worry about bleeding the tank of water all the time so it doesn't blow up. Also you don't have to mess with oiling it. All in all it's a great little compressor that you will find can be used for almost all the projects you will do around the house! Senco is a very respected air tool company, which is based in Cincinnati Ohio, although I'm not sure where this is made, but just might be made in the USA, which is very rare!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Excellent Small Compressor
This is an excellent little compressor. I purchased it for small finish trim jobs and the like. For the heck of it, I tried my guns (Bostich) to see how much it would cycle. With my 15ga. finish nailer I was able to shoot 3-4 nails before it cycled and about 8-10 brads with the brad nailer. Perfect for brad or pin nailers and pretty good for a finish nailer. Not for framing, obviously. I was quite impressed with the quality, although not surprised as I am familiar with Senco...that's why i bought it. It was on sale after the holidays for $111. Can't beat that. Very light, small, easy to carry, adjust and access air ports. Best of all, I was shocked at how QUIET this compressor was. Very nice. I would not hesitate to bring this into the house for work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ruralptrancher Excellent small compressor.
I purchased this compressor for use in our motor home as well as small jobs around the house and horse property. I have a large compressor in the garage for heavy duty jobs, like painting and running air tools, and don't expect it to do be able to do that.
In the motor home, I run it off shore/park power, or off the 4kw Onan generator, to air up tires (RV, car, and bicycle) and the air bag suspension. The fact that it pulls only a maximum of 4 amps (when starting) makes it ideal for this. It's so frugal on power consumption that it will easily run when attached to a long extension chord with no ill effects so I tend to use a longer chord, rather than a longer hose, when using it.
Around the property, I used it to staple welded wire fencing material to our round rail wood fence. Once again, I could run it off long runs of heavy duty extension chords to reach the far corners of the property with no overheating or other ill effects. I also use it to air up the tires on a tractor which is stored a considerable distance from the house and AC power supply.
I couldn't be more pleased.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by babesbarn Very good value and product
Very impressed with the performance of this little air compressor. Has a nice handy handle for carrying and does not take up a lot of room in storage. I follow the directions and not let it just "sit" too long without use. I recommend it highly. Heck of a lot better than the expensive one I had that konked out after three uses.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnnyT Great compressor in small size
This compressor is quieter than other small units I have used. Keep in mind it has a 1 gallon tank, so it will turn on rather frequent with continued use. It is used to fill some pool toys occasionally, and does this OK. However, once again it is only a 1 gallon tank.
The regulator is not a flimsy one and the fittings are solid.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by inidlats Great little air compressor!
I've used this little senco for all kinds of jobs around the house - particularly trim work and recently building a large buffet height cabinet in our kitchen. Everything I used for has gone without a hitch and I really love it! I also bought a senco brad nailer and narrow crown stapler, as well as a used 7/16" crown stapler.
The bigger stapler draws quite a bit more air, and the cfm requirement is too much for this to provide under heavy use... but the narrow crown and brad nailer are a great match.
I'll probably buy the Ridgid twinstack compressor today, but wanted to drop a note that this compressor has been wonderful for many of my needs. At only 27, I have a lot more housework ahead of me - and I think the Senco air compressor will be right there with me for much of that work. It's so handy not having to lug around a big air compressor for a little job!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rodnok Works Great If You Don't Use Too Long Of A Hose
I was airing up the 10 ply tires on my truck. With 75ft of air hose, it was a struggle to get 50psi in them. I should have turned the truck around so I could have used my shorter hose. Probably would have worked a lot better. Still, I'm very pleased and feel it will work great for my purposes. Very light. Very quite.
