High Quality Beast!!!
This is hands down the best air compressor I have ever owned. I went from a comercial grade 80 gal to this 7.5 beast. It's very well built, and super quiet, I was shocked by the noise, night and day compared to my old one. If your looking for the best built low noise piston driven air compressor look no farther this is the one to getextremely happy with it!!!

Sand blast as much as you want
I bought this 10 hp/80 gallon Emax compressor to improve my ability to use air for sandblasting. I highly recommend this compressor. I restore cars as a hobby and this is going to make things so much easier. I went from an oil less, loud 11 scfm compressor to the 38 scfm, QUIET and i do mean quiet Emax. Wish i would have purchased it a yesr ago. Game changer

Quiet and smooth running
After uncrating and getting in the garage, this is the biggest air compressor I ever had, I hooked this onto my 60 gallon and put copper lines out. Produces great pressure for all my needs. I can stand next to this and talk to someone. Great product for the money.

It’s quieter. I didn’t need a new compressor, I just needed a tax write off. American made and quieter, I’ll take it. Received it in July but being in the middle of a project I just installed it last week. Purchased a regulator got it plumbed and wired in and started it up. Had one little issue, the ball valve on the output of the tank leaked (the actual valve were its body is threaded together). I called Emax, they of course had me in their system because it was shipped direct and I had a new valve on Saturday. Great service, and so far a nicer compressor.

Great compressor - great U.S. company!
This compressor is impressive.....and massive (10hp/80gal) - it makes the others you've seen in Home Depot (or any of the other box stores or farm stores) seem "cute," so be ready for that! It is very well packed - bolted on a pallet surrounded by a light frame and OSB. I had it delivered rather than picking it up at the store because I don't have a forklift/tractor/etc to unload something of this size. Fortunately with a little creative thinking and an engine hoist I was able to get it off of the pallet and get it in place. It was easy to wire and I DID use the recommended vibration pads and bolted it to the floor. As I said, the pump and motor on this thing are massive, so I'm certain it's quite top heavy! When I fired it up there was one very slight air leak from the pressure regulator switch (or whatever it's called) - a slight tweak on the torx screws holding it together stopped it with no further issues. No leaks or issues with any of the fittings. I've never had an automatic drain - it's nice! I had planned to pipe the automatic drain outside, but it came with this little brass filter thing that dissipates that "blast" that it does, and since it's venting every 45 minutes (or however you decide to set it) there isn't 2 gallons of water in there like there always seemed to be with the old compressor when I would eventually remember to crawl under it and release the manual drain every week.....or 12. Anyhow, with the Emax being INSIDE and somewhat climate controlled environment, I decided to just see what happened if I let it vent inside......so far nothing.....I don't even actually see water come out of it at all - I think the brass filter thing atomizes what little moisture has built up since the last time it vented. My old compressor was outside in between 2 buildings - I put this one inside. It's not "silent," - to expect it to be so would be foolish. It IS, however, very quiet compared to any other compressor I've been around. The noise inside the building that the EMax creates is similar to my old compressor - but remember the EMax is INSIDE and the old one was OUTSIDE! (Metal insulated building for those wondering.) I have a small semi-portable older Craftsman compressor in the garage of my house for convenience - turned it on to air up a tire the other day and was reminded how obnoxious compressors can be! I'm glad I chose the "silent air" version of the EMax. Anyhow, if this EMax compressor doesn't last "forever," I'll be surprised, as it seems to be VERY well made. The company is very nice to deal with as well. I had a few questions prior to purchase, and a couple after. They also called me a few times (I can be hard to reach sometimes) to make sure I got my warranty set up. They seem to be a genuine US company making a good product that they'll stand behind if you do your part. I'm so tired of buying Chinese crap that may or may not work, so when it came time to replace my existing compressor, I searched for something made in the US, which is how I found EMax. I paid more than I had initially planned to spend to replace my old compressor, but if this thing is as good as it seems so far, I don't care! I really think this is one of those "you get what you pay for" situations. Oh, and when I ordered, I was given an estimated delivery date of about a month, but it came in about a week, so have your space ready, just in case!

When I picked it up at the store I took it home and uncrated it I found the site gauge leaking I loosened and did get get to stop. Luckily I had purchased the oil and filter kit and had it on hand because I did need about 1/3 of a quart of oil. The compressor seem to be noisier then it should be. I took the cover off of the silent box and found the filter just barely hanging there I tighten it up and it was much quieter and yes I do like the compressor very much now. Just need better inspection at assembly.

I bought this compressor for my new metal sculpture studio. It is powerful and quiet! I run a sandblasting cabinet, multiple air tools and a Plasma cutting table. Often running a couple tools at a time. The compressor keeps up and stays cool. Excellent so far!

Home Depot did a wonderful job with shipping and delivery to my local store for pickup. The unit was undamaged and in mint condition on a pallet with protective particle board around it. The Home Depot forklift operator quickly loaded it on my trailer and I drove it home without issues. I just finished installation in my garage the other day and got the air compressor running. It runs great and is very quiet for a large compressor. The noise volume is quite comfortable when standing next to it and I cannot hear it inside the house when its running. The pressure range adjustment was easy using a Torx 20 screwdriver and it is set up for my needs at this point. All good for now. Can't wait to start using the air with my plasma cutter. Thanks to Home Depot for making this caliber of industrial compressor available to the consumer at an excellent price.
