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.

Criticism

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.
