Product Details

Compressors are workhorse tools on the job site and in the work shop. Makita Air Compressors are favorites for their faster recovery time, lower noise, longer tool life and consistent performance. The Makita Quiet Series 1-1/2 HP, 3 Gallon, Oil-Free, Electric Air Compressor (MAC320Q) features a Quiet Series Design, combining strong performance with lower noise. At only 60 dBA, it's ideal for indoor use during case and base installation, trim and finish carpentry, cabinet or furniture making and more.

Q:Is there an advantage of the 3 gal. over the 2 gal. Makita quiet series compressor?
by|Sep 15, 2022
5 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  Only if you need the capacity for instance when you ar runnin a couple framing nail guns at the same time. You will also be lifting a heavier compressor.

by|Sep 18, 2022

    A:  More air capacity equals less run time for the compressor, and more tools you can run at once.

      A:  The compressor is always ready. I don’t have to wait for it to catch up.

      by|Sep 19, 2022

        A:  This compressor works great but is a little heavy so I keep it in my shop and take my 2 gal to the job sites

        by|Sep 19, 2022

          A:  Thank you for your question on the Mac 320Q. Yes, the 3 gallon provides more air. It has a Powerful 1-1/2 HP induction motor provides 2.6 CFM at 90 PSI.

            A:  Don't know if it is normal, but I can tell you that mine broke after about a month. Didn't register anything. The best part is that I hadn't used it at all except to test it out. I replaced it with a spread gauge I had and seems ok now.

              A:  Thank you for your question, but we will require more specific information in order to provide an answer. Call the Makita Call Center during business hours at (800)4-MAKITA, they’re based in Buford, GA and are ready to help.

                  Q:Since this is oil free compressor, can I mount this compressor into a wall and still use it as normal?

                  A:  NO!!!!!! / FLOOR USE ONLY

                  by|Jan 13, 2022

                    A:  Thank you for your question. Please see the user manual and read the section covering safe usage. Please do not mount to a wall. Also be certain the tool is not placed in an clean and safe area.

                    by|Jan 17, 2022

                      A:  Technically yes you’d be able to do that, but this machine has a good bit of vibration so it may rattle in its cubby hole or on the wall.

                        Quiet, but heavy
                        I bought the 3 gallon version, and I absolutely love it. My only complaint is the weight. It fills up extremely quickly, and the noise is low enough that you can still have a conversation beside it while it's running. I haven't used it with any continuous air tools , but for nailers, it's worked beautifully. Lugging it up/down stairs is a pain however; as I get older, I may have to attach it to a dolly somehow.
