Powerbuilt 3 Gal. Portable Electric Air Compressor Kit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wanted a light weight electric air compressor for airing up the many tires that always seem to ... I wanted a light weight electric air compressor for airing up the many tires that always seem to need additional air before I can work. This one is portable so I can plug it in, compress some air then carry it where I need it or I can leave it plugged in to work in place. At 43 lbs it is still heavy but I can manage it thanks to the great padded top handle. The directions were clear and easy to read. It was well packed for shipping and arrived undamaged. The only down side was there were no directions for the various parts that fit the hose. I did figure them out but it would have been nice to have had some direction in that regard. It has a regulator as part of the machine so you can control the amount of pressure that leaves the tank without buying a separate regulator. It is a pretty quiet unit thanks in part to the heavy rubber feet. They also help to stabilize the machine. I'm very pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PowerBuilt 3 gallon Oil-Free Air Compressor (Model #870931) is rated at 1.5 peak HP@8.6Amps, 125P... PowerBuilt 3 gallon Oil-Free Air Compressor (Model #870931) is rated at 1.5 peak HP@8.6Amps, 125PSI maximum pressure, 3.6 SCFM output @ 40PSI, and 2.5 SCFM output @ 90PSI. Duty cycle rated at 50%. Additional items include a self-coiling hose, Teflon tape, male and female quick connects, tire inflator, 2 needle ball inflators, dust blowing nozzle with adapter and fine tip, quick disconnect, and a thorough instruction booklet. It has a 6‘ power cord. It has an easy to use water condensation drain valve located slightly up from the bottom of the tank, so the unit is tipped slightly to drain fully. This is a sturdy little unit, light enough to pick up and move around, especially with the nicely padded and shaped handle. The output of the unit is quite good compared to some lower priced oil-free competitors that have output ratings as low as 1 SCFM @ 40PSI and 0.6 SCFM @ 90PSI. I believe SCFM is more important then Maximum Pressure – it is higher SCFM output that allows a small volume/size compressor to keep an air tool running while reducing the amount of time the compressor is running. A high SCFM keeps duty cycle lower and lengthens the life of the compressor. A 50% duty cycle means the compressor will run for 5 minutes for every 10 minutes of air tool use. According to the manual, this compressor is capable of running continuously but that will reduce the lifespan of the compressor. A 50% to 75% duty cycle is recommended for this compressor. This compressor should have no problem running a nailer/stapler gun or other smaller volume air tools. The ultimate test of cycling times and capacity I have is to blow some dust/cobwebs out of the garage. This small compressor did ok. While it can’t keep up with continuous blowing, it was able to provide enough volume and a quick enough recovery to get the job done. This is much more air then most tools are going to require. It takes 1 minute and 6 seconds for the compressor to go from empty to full/off at 125psi – not bad! It cycles back on when pressure drops to about 95psi. I had some initial difficulty plugging the hose into the compressor's quick disconnect. None of my disconnects has an internal rubber seal/seat as on this compressor. I first thought it wasn't the correct size disconnect, but not seeing any adapters included I gave it another try. It takes a firm push to get past this rubber seal/seat resulting in a solid connection. One issue I have with oil-free compressors is the noise; they are loud, especially compared to a similar sized oil-lubed compressor. Smaller units such as this are typically not running for long periods of time so this should normally not be a major issue. Otherwise, get some hearing protection! I have included a video to demonstrate the noise level of the compressor as it ran during the 20 minute recommended break-in period. I noted one bit of information provided in the instruction booklet: “DO NOT place air compressor in an area: Where air temperatures fall below 32F or exceed 104F”. My garage is not heated and I don’t intend to move the compressor into the house during the winter. I will keep it drained so there is no water to freeze, but I have never before had to keep a compressor stored above freezing. There is an additional caution about running the compressor when temperatures are below 45F: the compressor must be allowed to warm up 3-5 minutes with the drain valve opened. A suggestion I have to avoid having to always run a compressor before using it is to leave the tank pressurized after draining for water; then it is ready for those small tasks. This is especially useful in avoiding winter startups. However, this typically requires adding a ¼ turn on/off valve before the regulator as most regulators will allow the compressor to slowly leak down even when backed off fully. One year limited warranty to original purchaser from date of purchase: compressor pump, tank assembly, plumbing. And then this: six months warranty from date of purchase: pressure switch, regulator, pilot valve, check valve, copper/stainless steel line. 90 days from date of purchase: pressure gauge, safety release valve, drain valve, quick couplers. 30 days from date of purchase: air accessories. (I don’t appreciate when a company states “One year warranty” only to follow it with the fine print exceptions.) Made in China.

We have already had to put it into service pumping car tires an one tractor tire. I am sure it will be put to good use when my grandchildren are ready to hit the lake with their tubes as well! I am also considering purchasing an air brush system for painting fishing lures an other wood working projects and feel the compressor would be ideal for this use. Thanks Home Depot for a quality, useful product!!
