                Great recovery time
                Picked this up as my old one crapped out in the middle of a job. The recovery is lightning fast. Pretty quiet too. I also like that the handle folds down and yiu dont have to remove the air hose 1st. Folds down on the hose and holds it securely.

                Been working gteat for years.
                I've had this product many years and it hasn't gave me any problems. I had flat tires and couldn't find a service station with a working compressor during this cold spell. I dug out mine from the garage to warm up and quickly pumped up my tires. Obviously it is used for real work but most appreciate today.

                  I was liking this compressor until freezing weather hit. I went to use it and its circuit breaker had tripped. I reset it and the motor spun slightly, then locked. I figured it might be due to temperature, 21°F. I waited until a thaw, 34°, reset the breaker, and it started up. I thought maybe it had water in the tank, but when I opened the valve, it was bone dry. I have only had this since it was delivered Dec. 7, 2019, and today is Jan 23, 2020. I would like someone to explain this to me, I know it's hard on a motor to lock and trip it's breaker. And yes, I did add the oil before startup.

                    I'm a contractor. My cheaper Porter Cable died and I bought this. Yesterday I ran an air chisel to demo tile and I never had to wait for enough air to run the chisel. It is heavy but high quality. Great tool and Makita is quality.

                    Makita makes a very solid air compressor. Everything about this machine is better than any of the other brands even down to the tires! It is relatively quiet. The tank fills quickly. All of the controls are easy to operate. It is heavy but the handle and wheels are built to last so moving it is not a problem.

                    HEAVY duty
                    I decided to replace my old bostitch oil free pancake with this oiled compressor after abusing it for ten years installing hardwood flooring for a living. After installing a 50'x50' room in two days with only two installers which = 2 nailers, the ol' pancake couldnt keep pace and gave out. So i wanted to get a compressor that could handle at least two staplers/nailers at the same time without constant loading. I purchased this in february, and have been using it almost daily with it cycling maybe 30 times a day. I dont have to stop nailing because when the motor kicks in it can fill up quicker than two nailers each nailing maybe 1.5 times per second. While the oil less pancake is sharply loud, the makita is still pretty loud, but soft. Best way to explain is that the bostitch oil less pancake's noise level is if you put your radio up very high with the treble all the way up and bass in the middle, while the makita oiled compressor is like a radio up high with the bass up and treble down. The weight as indicated on the specs is on the heavy side. I have to load this thing in my van at the end of the day, and i am seriously considering making a small ramp or a way to leverage it up. Its definitely noticeably heavier than any 6gallon oil less pancake, and after 1/2 a year of loading/unloading this in my van has become an annoyance. However, after lifting it for loading/unloading, the handles and wheels make it easier to move around than a pancake. The wheels are large enough to gingerly go up steps, one step at a time, and after practicing, going down steps without scratching or marring wooden steps, by a single person without having to lift it off the ground. My only concern is the amount of condensation that comes out from the tank valve at the end of the day. On average i get maybe 1 tablespoon of a brown oily liquid a day, and am concerned about why it is so brown (like a mud puddle), and of any potential damage it will have for the years ahead. This is my first oiled compressor, and there really isnt much more maintenance compared to an oil less. Besides keeping an eye on the oil, emptying the tank from liquids should be done for any compressor at the end of the day.

                      Excellent Value in a Compact Compressor
                      I bought this primarily to operate a plasma cutter that needed about 5cfm at 60 psi. It is working very nicely. The cutter always has plenty of air helping to make my cuts efficient and quick. It has a roomy storage compartment for all those necessary compressor parts such as quick connects, an easily accessible drain valve, and lots of hose storage. I like that it's oil lubricated and although it's kind of loud it has a deep, throaty sound rather than the high pitched whine you get with oil-free units -- it's just easier on my ears and not so aggravating. The tires are substantial and I like that you can pick it up at the front or back to roll it around. I did a lot of shopping but couldn't find another compressor that delivered almost the same amount of cfm at 90psi as at 40psi and that had a compact tank. So far, I'm very pleased.

                        Makita MAC5200
                        Ordered Air Compressor on the 25th of September, Arrived on the 2nd of October in great condition, unboxed and added the supplied oil, opened the tank drain valve and plugged it in for 30 minutes. Upon closing the drain valve the compressor built up to the kick-off pressure of 140psi on less then one minute. Awesome Compressor, Highest CFM rated compressor @ 90 psi for its size and weight. I bought this unit to supply air for my Miller 625 Spectrum Extreme Plasma torch when working in doors at remote locations ie.(inside the Malls) the compressor seems evenly balanced for picking up to load on a tail gate or deck.
