I recommend this compressor, but there are a couple things you should know. I bought it for finish nailing and it works perfectly well. I like how compact it is with the 4 gallon tank. While it cycles on more frequently than say a 6 gallon unit when running the nailer, it's not like a 1 or 2 gallon unit that has to run constantly. Here's what you need to know: it's heavy (maybe that means it's well built), the pvc hose is a joke, and so is the accessory kit. Buy it, but you'll immediatly want to spend money on a genuine rubber hose and you'll probably need more connectors - it doesn't even come with enough parts to quick connect the blow gun for example. Making an honest apple-to-apples comparison, however, most, if not all, other low priced compressors come with pvc hose too so this cost will get you no matter what. I don't regret buying it at all, and the service at my local store was great.
Just purchased this compressor with a 3 year replacement warranty. Plugged it in and the compressor was leaking air from behind the black cover. Could not get pressure above 80lbs. Quite disappointed that I know have to trek back to sears and get a replacement. I've read other reviews with this exact same problem. Hopefully sears read these reviews and report these issues back to their manufacturers and their qc teams. I certainly expect more from a craftsman product.
I bought this as a gift to give to my boyfriend. Shopping at Sears I got a great deal and cannot wait to give it to him! I know he is going to love it and get great use!
We are home renovators and he needed a reliable air compressor. (The one he received as a hand-me-down was scary.) I am always happy when Craftsman offers a tool he is in need of or mentions wanting, because I don't even to ask for details, I can truly surprise him with a gift he'll love and use.
got this for my son for Christmas, he can't wait to use it
I bought this for little jobs around the house. Its a good price for the use i get out of it. The additional accessories are junk but hey its a freebie.
