20 Gal 1.5 HP 150 PSI Air Compressor

Great compressor, powerful with lots of air for many jobs. Have only had it for one day but was very impressed with the many improvements over my old craftsman compressor. The old one finally died yesterday after running 23 years without a problem, I guess that's saying something for Craftsman. Some of the new features: No oil for the compressor, great improvement, I wonder how they did that. Less HP motor means using less electricity (1.5 HP vs. 2.0 HP on my old one), more pressure (150 PSI vs. 120 PSI on my old one), quieter, bigger tank for more storage. Ran it most of the day with no problems.

Not even close to what it's rated at!!!

I received this compressor as a gift this past Christmas since I sold my other compressor when we moved. I'm a retired mechanic and I do still perform work on my own vehicles as well as for friends and family and even like to do little projects. This compressor will NOT run an impact wrench of any size nor will it run an air ratchet. It does not even come close to the ratings they have given it. I used this compressor as long as it took for me to set the pressure as described in the manual. (with tool running) The first thing I noticed is the motor shuts off at 130psi NOT the 150psi it states it would turn off at in the manual. Secondly, it doesn't turn back on until 100psi and NOT the 120 turn on psi indicated in the manual.This compressor is NOT intended for anyone looking to remove wheels from their vehicle. It MIGHT handle inflating the tires, but I would imagine even that might be too much for this compressor. I have been a Craftsman loyalist for over 25 years .... this is a complete disgrace to the Craftsman name and reputation. Do NOT buy this compressor. It's just plain useless, noisy. takes over 5 minutes to rebuild it's full pressure and is not at all helpful to anyone needing to use air tools. It's going back today.

awesome, but slow


works for what you need it for, doesn't take up much space but to air my tire, it took like 10 minutes or more.

Weak pressure regulator


The pressure regulator that comes with the unit doesn't perform like it should, so if you intend to do any painting , get an external pressure regulator.
Also, I wasn't good about bleeding the moisture out on a regular basis, the bottom of my tank rusted out.

Very Sad


I purchased this air compressor to replace my 20 year old Craftsman air compressor which I gave to my son. Sadly, this new one (MADE IN CHINA) died on me after just a year and a half. The motor made a bang and will not turn. Piston is fine, compressor is fine, but the motor is shot. No one carries motors for these things as they are most likely the most expensive part and not worth repairing. In my opinion, the power tool reputation of Craftsman is no better than the others, yet you pay extra for the name. This will most likely be the last Craftsman power tool I buy. Just another reason why Sears has problems competing.

Great for a hobby mechanic


This compressor has bee great for my garage for over 5 years now. As a hobby mechanic I use impact wrenchs, grinders, cutters, air blowers, etc. I know I push it's capabilities quite often with the impact wrenchs and it has kept pressure for a decent amount of time. Great product.

Has worked great for more than 20 years


I have had this compressor for over 20 years and it has worked great from day one. Whether it is helping work on the car or chisel up floor tiles this compressor has worked flawlessly.

Great workshop addition!


I have been setting up a wood working shop in my garage for a few months. I was looking at a pancake compressor and my Dad suggested this compressor, awesome advise. This not only handles all my air nailers with ease, it is big enough to handle most jobs with minimal recharge. It also works great with my Craftsman sand blaster. Any home shop would be blessed to have this great piece of equipment.

Good power, needs to hold air better.


<p>150PSI is plenty of power.  When it's not being used, it slowly loses compression and has to turn itself back on without being used.  It needs to hold air better, but runs air tools just fine.  Decent portability.  Loud.  Rather expensive.  Works good, average value.</p>

Just what I wanted !


<p>I bought this Air Compressor to replace my Antique DeVilbiss (1936).  I use a small air nailer and stapler with my home projects with the usual air ups for bikes.  Though this is not a professional compressor to run major air tools for long periods of time,  it is perfect for the occasional home project.  It is compact, takes up little space and is light enough to roll out to the driveway to blow the grass/debris off my lawn mower or air up the vehicle tires.  I even used my paint sprayer to redo my bathroom.    Love it and highly recommend it.</p>

what happen to the good ole days when sears sold GOOD STUFF


<p>This was a replacment,or so they call it for a fine compressor that had a recall they could not fix,It will not pump up my tire on my wheel barrow,forget about an air tool</p>
<p>I have a small plug in the cigerrette liter that works better from the dollar tree,but it won't hook up an air tool-Went to sell it on Craigslist and the same compressor is selling for $65.00 and there seven at the time I looked,I will be buying elsewhere now for everything,and to yhink I was going to buy a Laptop from them-What a waste of a company now</p>
