M18 Air Compressor
Lightweight, compact and QUIET !! Would not recommend for crown staples on underlayment or roofing, but for trim, base and interior doors this machine rocks !! Have 6ah batts, but as with any cordless tool, the bigger the batts, the longer it will run.

    A bit heavy but it’s perfect for Air brushing when I do window art; where there is no access to any outlets. I also love that fact I can air the tires on my car with no problem and no cords. It’s much quieter than my other compressors.

    15 years ago, this would be science fiction
    A battery powered compressor that's light weight and quiet is exactly what finish carpenters have dreamed of for years, and this compressor delivers. A few people complain about capacity and battery life, but I guarantee they are used to over working their corded compressors and with a finite amount of energy per battery, they're suddenly having to come to grips with that. It's not meant to be unlimited shop air, but as for what it is meant to do, it's fantastic. From trim work to airing up tires out in the wilderness, it does it well.

      Milwaukee hits it out of the park
      What can i say that hasn't already been said. A cordless compressor is not something i had intended to buy for my Milwaukee line of power equipment, but this little jewel is going to save me a lot of time. I do a lot of interior finish carpentry and the one thing i never enjoy is finding power on site, or the look on a customers face when i fire up my pancake air supply in a home. This compressor is very quiet, and has a humble sound of it's own. There is a video done by someone who demonstrates that the air pressure control won't turn when the compressor is pressurized. Milwaukee must have fixed this as mine turns easily (there is resistance as expected) and i do not need to release all the pressure. Comes up to full pressure just as quickly as expected. The 2 gallon tank holds enough air to do a quick blow off should you need it, and i can see where it will inflate tires if needed. I asked one of the questions on this unit in regards to whether or not i could use an airbrush. Replies from users were great, but i think Milwaukee should post real life suggestions instead of the generic answer they gave. Milwaukee if you are listening, this compressor can indeed provide the airbrush user the painting tasks as needed. I tried it last nite with the Iwata brush pictured along with an external air pressure/water trap and it worked perfectly. I'm very happy i bought this one.

        Great functionality, portability, quality and utility.
        Having used this compressor with a Bostitch SB 2-in-1 18ga finish nailer/stapler on some repair projects at about 95 PSI, I found the compressor to get up to pressure and operate through about a strip and a half of 3/4 inch staples before cycling back on again for about two minutes. One thing I haven't seen mentioned on any reviews is that Milwaukee missed placing rubber feet below the carrying handle side of the frame. So, when carrying the compressor by the installed carry handle, to set it down, it sits directly on the painted steel frame. I put some protective grip tape on the contact points when it is set down on the ground to prevent damage to the steel frame/roll-cage. While this is a minor "miss" on the designers' part, it was not enough to knock off a star on this awesome tool for those of us who still love our "air-powered" nailers and other pneumatic tools. If Milwaukee adds these protective "feet" on the set-down side of the frame, many users will have less issues with paint scraping off and subsequent corrosion on the very important roll cage (especially in coastal areas where marine air and metal corrosion can become an issue more quickly than in more arid or dry climates). Thanks for reading and thank you to Milwaukee for this great addition to the M18 line!

          This is another excellent Milwaukee tool using the M18 battery system. The compressor is well built with a sturdy carry handle and roll cage. It is not light but lighter than most portable air compressors (around 30 pounds). It is pretty quiet and is easy to operate. From a safety standpoint, I was a little concerned about the location of the pressure relief valve. It is easy to access, but if you are not careful, you could bleed the air off in your face. I like the fact that you can regulate the air pressure for various applications. It would be nice if a basic air hose with appropriate connectors could be included with the generator to make a "ready to go out of the box" kit.

          I intended to use this mainly to run small nailers and to air up tires when I had flats that were too far from my shop to run an air hose. It works just fine for that. What I found out is that it will actually run my big impact wrench for removing lug nuts and my spray gun. Both of these tools do use a lot more air than the compressor can supply but as long as you are patient it works great. I had a chance to use it on my wife's car when she had a flat several miles from home. Since the pressure maxes out at 135 psi it can be used for a lot more than I had anticipated. It is very well balanced and easy to carry. I think my new compressor is going to be one my most useful tools. I have a gasoline powered portable unit but moving it around for small jobs is more trouble than it is worth.

          CORDLESS; LIGHTER WEIGHT; EASY to USE; WORKS with FINISH NAILER — The Milwaukee M18 FUEL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 2 Gal. Electric Compact Quiet Compressor (Tool-Only) has many things to like about it. Even though it is not lightweight, its 31.2 lbs. are much less than my corded pancake compressor’s 55 lbs. That feature plus it being cordless allows me to move it to where I need it. It has a better design than my pancake compressor, e.g., the pressure relief valve is easy to access. Also, since it is only 2 gal. rather than 5 gal, it gets to the desired pressure more quickly. The design of the controls makes it easy to use. It is obviously quieter but not quiet. I like the compact design. The filter and plastic muffler tube need to be installed before using. The instructions say to attach the hose and tool before starting the compressor whereas the pancake compressor says to attach the hose, bring it up to pressure, and then attach the tool. I was very pleased with how it preformed with my finish nailer, actually better than my pancake compressor. It should satisfy all of my compressor needs. It has a 3-year warranty. It is made in Mexico (not China).

          Milwaukee M18 FUEL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 2 Gal. Electric Compact Quiet Compressor (Tool-Only) review: This is a heavy and quiet air compressor of typical Milwaukee quality - perfection! It has a roll cage around it to protect it on he job site. I like the instruction manual which was very detailed and informative. Quiet and runs on Milwaukee M18 batteries. Can use it INDOORS since not gas powered! Love it. There ya go.

          The Milwaukee M18 Brushless/Cordless 2 Gallon Electric “Quiet” Compressor works perfect. With zero pressure in the air tank it took 4 minutes and 7 seconds to fill the air tank to the shut off pressure at just under 140 psig. My first project was framing around a vertical drainpipe in order to install drywall. I used the compressor for 4 hours with a fully charged 12 Ah battery. A tank pressure gage is provided and easy to view looking downward at the compressor. A large knob to set the desired supply pressure is located just below the tank pressure gage. The compressor is very quiet, 68 dB(a) and you can easily have a conversation over the sound of the compressor. The compressor weighs about 31 lbs. and can be easily be carried. A round roll cage exists opposite of the air tank and the carry handle which makes it easy to rock the unit to a vertical position and lift it off the ground. It is simple to use; plug in a battery, push the on switch, adjust the supply pressure regulator and connect your air hose. Milwaukee has provided a handy water drain on the bottom side of the air tank. A single standard quick connect is provided to connect your air hose and an air release valve is provided on the right side of the compressor to relieve pressure during transport of the unit. With this Milwaukee battery powered compressor you no longer need 110-volt power supply to run your small pneumatic air nailers at a job site. Just bring a couple of batteries and you’re good for the whole day. It is very light weight and convenient to use. I really like the Milwaukee Air Compressor and would recommend it to anyone who doesn’t have a power supply at their work location.
