Yes, but if there is dry dirt or debris in the lines, you might want to run some water in first to loosen everything up.
Hello Bruce, Horsepower is 1.1HP and the it has a 12 amp draw. This provides the motor a easy way to start and reduces the breaker being tripped.
You need to drain the water from the drain plug more often than you are and let the gunk blow out of it. I recommend doing that where you are not worried about getting a brown gunk on things. Make sure the compressor is full of air before turning the value.
I bought this compressor about 15 months ago and have it for a number of things including using a high pressure staple gun and a framing gun. I typically drive 3.5" nails and all it requires is a 120psi. The ratings on this compressor say that it is good for 200psi but rarely have I seen exceed 150psi. I don't think using it for shingle nails will tax it too hard. However, I have never used both output ports at the same time and that would be a question for further investigation.
no, don't buy it! terrible, Don't even get up over 150 PSI, it rate for 225 PSI but it won't pass 150! I will return it!
The compressor weighs 36 lbs and puts out 71.5 decibels. By the way, this information is available on the Home Depot web site under the product specifications for the product.
This compressor has a low capacity tank and low cfm rating, it is best for low draw work like nailing trim not for tire inflation
Yes. I’ve used it to put down about 2400 sqft of 5/8” bamboo with the floor stapler. Worked like a champ.
As others have noted, certainly not for large jobs, and not as a regular function. If you just want to spray some cabinets or radiators every now and then it is totally fine.
The rule of thumb when sizing breakers is 1.25 * FLA where FLA is the "full load amperage" of the motor. This compressor advertises a 12 amp motor, so you shouldn't have a problem running this on a 15 amp breaker. Speaking from experience, mine has never tripped a 15 amp breaker on startup. If you're on the fence about buying this, I say go for it. It's been an outstanding compressor that stands up to my abuse. It's easy to transport and is quiet, which is a huge plus when you're working in small areas, like remodeling bathrooms, etc.
