We have owned this compressor for over 2 years now and it is great!
We use it daily and it always starts up and does it's job! Have had this compressor for approximately one year and love it. Great compressor for the professional contractor.Was looking at other brand name compressors but started comparing actual specs and it just looked like a better compressor on paper but was still hesitant. Took a chance glad I did and couldn't be happier. Got it to run a pressure blaster and this baby kicks tail and doesn't miss a lick.
Would highly recommend this compressor it works even better than it pencils out. Works great plenty of air!! We use this unit to work on our semi trucks all the time. It works like a dream always starts (Honda) and has plenty of air glad I got the larger motor and unit.
We also hook it up to a 80 Gal pony tank and service 2 large air guns at once. Wished it had a larger outlet port though.
Great compressor and price point. That model was plagued with vibration issues that caused alot of parts to break. I'm so glad that I did because the previous issues were addressed (parts added/updated) and this new unit is wonderful!! The vibration is gone and now I don't have to worry about the compressor going down in the field and now being able to use it. Also the new pressure regulator is nice.
This compressor is used nearly everyday and I couldn't work without it. We may already have an answer to your question!We reserve the right to correct ad errors and/or omissions.
