Why it shut off frecuently?

I bought one 3 weeks ago and I am having this problem my makita air compresor shut off at list every 30 minute.
Asked by: Nene
In our experience we have had no issues with the compressor shutting off by it's self. Our framing crew has been using the compressor for 10 weeks, 8 hours a day and the crew has nothing bad to say about this compressor.

My hvlp requires 30psi at 13 cfm, will this compressor run it? Continuously?

Asked by: Marcos
The answer would be definitely. It does 14cfm @ 40 so it would be even more @ 30

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good compressor It is a good working compressor, my brother recomended it because they used them in their work for framing. The only bad thing is that when I first started it, the belt got loose. The compressor pulley had misalignment wih the engine pulley and it would keep loosing the pulley, the engine would slightly touch a air pipe and this would not let you align the engine and compressor properly. I had to buy a longer v-belt and scoot the engine slightly back, then it worked perfectly. I could of just returned it and got my money back, but i had exported it to mexico so i wasn't going to pay the exporting taxes twice when i returned with another one, i don't know if this design flaw is in every compressor or just mine. But its been woorking fine after this in my farm, my brother said they did not have any problems with their compressors, but make a note that i bought the big bore model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Factory run and tested before delivery! The oil was in the Honda engine before being delivered as it was tested before it left the factory! Most equipment with gas engines comes with a bottle of oil with none in the engine. Therefore, it was not tested before leaving the factory. The product is heavy-233lbs so it's best to leave on truck or trailer if possible The wheel and handles makes this 233 lb. machine movable by one person. Runs quieter than most as it is belt driven. And have quick recovery with more than one pneumatic tool being used. 5.5 hp engine being used rather than blowing lower amp circuits and great for the field when no electric is available. And of course the Makita brand name is known for quality as I have several dependable tools of theirs..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and powerful Best part of the air compressor out of the box is the tire and handle. This makes the big jobs much easier. The engine is quiet and powerful and exceeded my expectations. The rubber feet quiet the compressor. The tank fills quickly and gauges are easy to read for a do it yourselfer like me. I noticed a lot of parts reduce corrosion so I expect to get many years of use! Best air compressor I have ever used!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Had some rattling around belt when ran from 1st start... Had some rattling around belt when ran from 1st start also had oil leaking underneath the motor, otherwise worked great and the easiest compressor I have had to pull start. Easy to load and unload, liked all the features and would have kept it if it was not for the initial problems.
