Great compressor. Plenty of power for air tools.
This compressor is very well built with heavy duty quality components. Looks like it will give me many years of trouble free service. It has plenty of power to run a D/A sander, sand blast cabinet or impact wrench. Very quiet and smooth. A++ compressor.

After comparing many brands including looking at exploded parts diagrams I chose this compressor for my workshop. As a mechanical engineer with 30 years experience in industrial equipment, I am very pleased with this unit and believe it will last a lifetime. It arrived in perfect condition and is very quiet for a compressor of its size.

I bought this compressor to replace a 30 year old 60 gal 5hp one that was my fathers. The other one still worked but had not been drained properly and the tank was bad. At least I thought it worked, this compressor makes air so much faster and quieter it is amazing. I got it with the automatic drain so it could last forever this time. I used to wait for my air compressor to build pressure when using my blasting cabinet, but now the E-maxx cycles on and off without ever losing pressure. The compressor is awesome, I have used it for air tools, painting, and blasting and it never seems to run out of air. The compressor looks extremely tough and well built, I'm sure it will last me the rest of my life with proper maintenance. Very Happy with my purchase.

Rating for the EMAX+ 80 gallon 7.5HP vertical.. Very heavy, good welds, and low running noise. The max pressure adjustment is easy to adjust (stock is 175 but turned mine down to 140psi) and the auto drain works great! Compressor is top-heavy - bolt down on rubber pads... Arrived undamaged and within a three weeks...

Purchased this compressor on MA tax free holiday. Based the purchase on the specs and good reviews. It arrived in great shape. Be aware that it's a beast! Very Heavy! I wired it up and ran it. Discovered an air leak at the switch/pressure shut off. Talked to customer service who said to just tighten the assembly. I ended up dewiring it and adding some wraps of teflon tape to the fitting. Reinstalled and tested it. No more leaks. Customer service rep Todd was great. In conclusion, the compressor is great, maybe could use a better once over before shipping.

I love my Emax! Very quiet, kicks on less, able to paint cars while others are using buffer or Sanders. Easy to install aside from be so heavy. I used a lift and engine hoist to make it easier. Highly recommend.

There are a few things i really like about this Compressor.It is the quietest compressor i have ever had and runs less time before it is full again it also has the continuous run option for when using a lot of air like when I'm doing sand blasting.I really like the auto drain which is great for someone that forgets to drain the tank

This is hard because the air compressor itself is awesome but it came with barely any oil in it it all had drained out all over the tank and I didn't get my automatic drain unit it took forever to get which I was told up front somehow my order got messed up and I didn't get the silent air but I'll find it to be okay because this air compressor is fairly quiet for the size and let me tell you this thing is huge definitely doesn't look like anybody cut corners it will take about 5 or 6 guys to take this out of the back of a truck this thing is heavy I had a 7.5 horsepower husky 80 gallon air compressor before this one and this one makes the husky look small the Husky lasted 16 years I liked it a lot but this one still outperforms that one I can run my sandboard Non-Stop and it will shut the air compressor down I use this for home use but I demand a lot of air for the tools I use and it holds up well I would rate this thing 5 stars but the oil being drained on to the tank and missing the automatic drain in the miscommunication this thing is quite a bit quieter then my husky I can have a elevated conversation next to it the Husky I could not
