Q:Do any air compressors come with the hose
by|Dec 16, 2020
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi Unlucky comes with hose if you order it at the same time you get the air compressor. Are way to many types and sizes to ship with just any old hose, so you must pick what you need and just add to your order to go to Home Depot and pick one up

Q:Hi All. I live in an apartment complex, 5 separate buildings, 2 stories each, 8 apartments in a building. We aren't suppose to work on vehicles or operate machines here. But I build model rockets (the kind that actually launched) and rattle cans don't do a very good job on large rockets. I need something that will be somewhat quiet so other people won't complain. I've was an auto body tech for 20 years so I know there is no quiet compressor. Since I'll have to use it on our deck (2nd story) I'm more concerned how much vibration it will transmit through the building from the deck. I'll be using a door jamb spray gun (about 1/2 the size of standard HVLP spray gun) and a Badger 150 air brush. So it's not a long period of use at any time. Probably let it build up and turn it off and have air pressure left over. Of coarse, use will be limited to weekends when management is not here. How much vibration does this little unit put out? Years ago I had 2hp 20 gallon tank SpeedAir compressors. Those things would wonder all over the place, and to strap them to bench legs that were mounted to the garage walls. Thanks for any help with the amount of vibration this little unit puts out.

Answer This Question

A:  Hi WoodysWorkshop, is not much in the way of vibration and you should be good on that, but noise, is loud when filling the tank with air so people may complain about that, but not sure how much air you will be using so cant answer on that. Mine just sits on the floor and does not move at all so you will be good on that matter

I purchased this compressor after buying a California Air Tools model, which burned up about 3 weeks into my ownership. I figured that I would go with an oiled compressor that should last much longer. Initially, I was very impressed by this unit. It seemed pretty well built, all the way down to the ridiculously-substantial power cord. The third time I used it, however, I noticed that there was a puddle of oil on the floor under it. On closer investigation, it looked to be dripping out of the motor/piston housing but I could not see the actual source. I used it a couple more times and the result was the same. The company didn't have any answers, so I opted to return it. What I have learned is that there is no point to buying cheap compressors.

Very nice works pretty well just get yourself a rench and make sure you tighten up all the fittings but don't over tighten them because they need to be snug but it is well worth the money I mainly got mine to blow out the dust in my air filters and fans stuff like that you never know when you're going to need it

AT LAST!! We have owned and do own several air compressors. This WEN 6 Gal Oil Lubricated Horizontal Air Compressor is a standout!! It has a handle and wheels!!! No more trying to lift or dolly a heavy awkward air compressor to get it where it needs to be. This little compressor is versatile, has lots of pressure AND a quick recovery. My husband is very impressed especially since it's backed by a two-year warranty. WELL DONE WEN!!!

Order this air compressor a week ago and UPS delivered it 2 days ago. was very east to set up, just put on the wheels (two bolts), screw on air filter, fill with provide oil and stall oil cap/ Breather. Hook up air hose, hose with me, plug it in and you are ready to go. Turn on and fill with air, tried out on blowing off brush on ATV and It did a great job, then used to fill tires back to required pressure, was fast and easy. Had no air leaks and that made me happy as my old compressor has had a small leak for some time and never could find it and would wait to refill when I was asleep and would wake me up as bedroom is next to shop and air compressor is like 6 feet away from bedroom. and this one did not wake me. Like the tank drain valve on bottom of tank and the oil gauge so you can see oil level. Nice for shop or on a job site if needed Wen has done a great job with this one
