I had been looking for a air compressor for a number of years. The problem is that the small ones do not seem to produce a high enough cfm and the big ones are not as portable. This is a good medium size air compressor that I use every week in my shop doing general work such as filling tires, light to medium nailing, light ratcheting, light spraying, and blowing out my sprinkler system. The only reason I do not give 5 stars is you need to immediately buy a better hose. The plastic hose that came with the compressor lasted 1 day before it split.
After Recieving this as a Christmas present from my wife a year ago I have only used this product not even ten times. I would not recomend this product or any other craftsman product because they are in the business of manufacturing junk. I would go to ******* and buy a new compressor before i bought another from Sears there products a junk and they dont stand behind there products. DO NOT BUY CRAFTSMAN TOOLS!!!!!!The compressor doesn't work any more and Sears wont stand behond there product.
I like craftmans tools
I had this nice little compressor delivered... which appears to be a mistake to have done. First off, the equipment as a whole is very nice little compressor, and is capable of getting the job done. The real compliant about this model, is that is does take awhile for the little motor to fill the tank, and while compressing it does vibrate quite a bit. But of course, this is not a surprise... and with general use this is ok.
So why 2 stars? Simply because during shipping my new compressor arrived damaged... I mean really!? I discovered this when I unpacked the unit to find that on the upper housing the area around the start compositor got broken. The compositor itself did not crack or get opened... so I was able to repair the unit. Yes I did ponder if I should return the unit or not- indeed if the compositor opened, I would have.
So the lesson here is do not have this unit shipped to your house because the packaging can hold up to shipping.
Anyone that owns a vehicle or an inflatable item should have one. Handy as a pocket in a shirt. Temperature and use sometimes have an effect on air pressure in anything from tires to basketballs.
