    Heavy Compressor Alternative
    I have read most of the reviews, and wonder why people didn't just buy the MAC5200 instead? The MAC5200 supposedly weighs about the same, has a little more capacity, but it is on wheels. Even a little woman can move it easily! It has a handle that folds down, and can be used to store the pneumatic hose. Why are so many people missing the opportunity to buy the next level up, when there are so many complaints of how heavy the MAC2400 compressor is? I love my MAC5200 compressor, and it will do the same amount of work this compressor can do. I love the fact that I can just wheel the compressor around a construction site, and use it without excessive noise problems. And from what I read, it will supply enough air to run two nail guns, and has no problem keeping up.

      A must have for the professional or occasional use home owner for all your air needs! I had a big 33gal oilless craftsman for the last 12years and needed to downsize. Always woke the neighbors when I fired that one up in the morning so loud! This runs very quiet and dial adjustment is much more precise for required air pressure! Dial reads within a pound of my digital tire checker! The first one ordered I could not get the oil cap to thread in straight it was cross threaded so I returned entire unit for replacement! no problem with the second purchase! Only con I see it does walk around my bench from vibration and I wonder if this is normal operation when running so my fix is a couple wood clamps at the end of the bench and now it is solid! I'm in Florida so I will change to SAE 30 weight at first oil change! Great buy highly recommended!

      I’ve had this product for 3 weeks. So far this compressor is working as advertised. It was easy to get out of box, set up, and get operating. Good quality workmanship. Fit and finish is very good. I’m using this for light to medium projects around my house, garage, and barn. I would definitely recommend this to others that need a portable air compressor.

      perfect compressor for home shop - the compressor is super quite / smooth running and works really well for small to med projects and bicycle tires etc. I have not used it for automotive type tools yet - but seems that it would work fine. Very happy with purchase!

      I am a construction contractor and bought this for myself at Christmas . It is powerful enough to use two nail guns all day on a roofing job and yet very quiet . I would recommend this well built Makita product and look forward to not having to worry about its performance and durability .

      I had a Hitachi EC4 (the regulator kept going out) and I've used several other compressors over the years (including having a 60 gallon, twin cylinder). The Makita MAC2400 is by far the quietest one! I can have it running in the corner of my garage while brad nailing projects together and hold a normal converstation. It kept up with my latest deck build without a hick-up. The only issue was the weight. It was a little ungainly to pick up and move, so my buddy welded a two wheel cart for me to move it around with.

        Great Compressor
        I've been using this compressor for chair railing and crown applications around my house the last few weekends. It's surpassed all of my expectations thus far. Super quiet cycles, holds pressure very well, has the ability to power two tools at the same time (haven't used this feature yet). Plans to use it for a fence build in the coming months. Well worth the added expense over some pancake compressor with limited use. I will say that it's a bit heavy, but easily remedied by purchasing a longer hose.

        Great Heavy Duty Compressor!
        Ordered online, received 3 days later. I've seen some reviews about damaged parts in shipping, but no problems with mine. At 75 lbs it's not exactly portable, but that's no problem for me. I knew that when purchasing and expected it to be heavy duty and would last. So far, I've used it with an air hammer and it held up superbly with that project. Very fast recycle times and super quiet compared to oil-less compressors. Good quality brass fittings and exhaust pipe is nicely insulated. Very sturdy and I expect to get many years of service out of it. My only wish is that it would do 4.5cfm @ 90psi. 4.2 is close enough for me. Be sure to do the required 30 minute break-in with the tank release valve open..
