The Wen 20 Gal Oil Lubricated portable Vertical Air Compressor works great for my needs. I have a small wood working shop and this compressor is perfect for that. My shop is above my garage so I put a triple hose connection on the compressor. One line goes up to the shop, and 2 lines stay in the garage. I also used this compressor for pneumatic props on Halloween, it worked great! The 20 gallon tank gave me plenty of air for popping heads! The compressor is easy to assemble, instructions are easy to understand. There are tags attached to the compressor for easy set up. You have to add the included oil to the compressor before operation! It took maybe 10-15 minutes to assemble and have to compressor running. This is not my first product from WEN. All of them have treated me well. I do recommend this compressor!
All In One, Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Sturdy, plenty of air, easy assembly

I received this Wen 20 gallon oil lubricated portable vertical air compressor about 4 weeks ago and these are the results. The packaging was sufficient, the setup consisted of putting the wheels on, installing the air filter, and adding the oil. The bottle of oil that came with it doesn't fill the compressor to the recommended level. It seems they would give you a little more than needed. I do like the fact that it has a clearly visible oil gauge on the outside of the compressor . After all the prep work I was ready to turn on the compressor. It ran for about 10 minutes filling the tank with air and automatically shut off at 135 PSI. After about 30 minutes I went back to read the gauge and the pressure had decreased to 125 PSI. Things I also liked include the air tank drain valve doesn't require tools to open, it's vertical so it takes up less garage space, and that it automatically turns on when the pressure gets below 105 PSI.

Just received this compressor and I'm quite impressed with it. Set up was simple with attaching the wheels and adding the supplied oil. Other reviewers had mentioned that the supplied oil was not sufficient to fill the motor but I found that this was not the case and it supplied the right amount of oil needed. After turning on the compressor it took about 5 &1/2 minutes to fill the tank before it shut off at the 135 lb mark. After waiting for about 30 minutes I checked the pressure gauge and it had fallen to about the 110 lb mark. I didn't bother using the water and soap method to find the leak because I could see the the connections from the quick connect fitting (#13) to the pressure gauge (#8) seemed loose so I added thread seal tape to all the connections up to the pressure gauge. Refilled the tank and waited about an hour and checked the pressure gauge and it retained the proper air pressure without any loss of air.
Also when I was taping up the connections I added an air shut off ball valve to I could change connection easily if needed. Aside from adding seal tape to the connections I'm very please with this air compressor and hope to get many years out of it.

There were not a lot of reviews on this compressor, but the reviews that were posted were good. I bought it online and I received it in less than a week. Right when I unboxed the compressor I could tell it was well put together. Quality manufacturing; which is very hard to find in this day and age. The reasons I initially purchased the compressor:
1. Good reviews.
2. Reasonable price.
3. 2 year manufactures warranty.
4. For only $25 more Home Depot kicked in another 2 year warranty after the manufacturer’s
5. Free shipping.
6. Grand total $230 (with extra warranty).
7. Happy wife since I did not spend too much.
8. Compressor is a bit noisy, but no more than any other compressor I have previously had.
I have only had this compressor a few days and I have no reservations. I am very, very pleased with my purchase. Nice Product!
So far so good. Works good out of the box after adding included oil and firing it up. The real test of an air compressor comes over time, the only thing that can be rated at this point (three of four uses) is manufacturing quality control. The compressor passes with flying colors. I see no manufacturing defects and the compressor arrived at Home Depot in good condition. I had the machine delivered to the store rather than my residence. That way, if the box had been damaged in shipment I planned to inspect it before leaving the store.

So far so good. I bought some top shelf attachments and used brass fittings and Teflon tape for good seals. Its a little louder than I thought it would be but not that bad. I originally turned it on and let it build up 59 lbs and began to use it over a short period of time, it built up to 150 lb PSI AND I shut the compressor off. I filled the tires on my kids bicycles and the gauge dropped a few lbs and then left it sit for three days and the PSIs have not dropped in that time. It seems to run well and quickly fills to the pre-set PSI and shuts off. I don't think you would be disappointed in this unit. Best price going for what you are getting. It is not an industrial machine, something to remember if you want to run it none stop. I don't think it would hold up to that but normal home owner tool will last forever.
First, delivery was as promised. Second, the compressor was well packed. Set up was easy, install wheels, air filter, and add supplied oil. The compressor worked and was not as noisy as anticipated. The drain valve is very easy to operate. All fittings were solid, no air leaks.

First time I own a WEN brand air compressor and i am so happy for my purchase because so far it has been a great investment. It's louder than I expected but it works great with my Impact wrench and Ratchet. Delivery was easy and came one week sooner than when it was expected.
