Great Compressor for the money.

I got this compressor on a special sale so I got it at a very good price. Not for too long I got it just about a week ago. It's a great compressor, a balance between mobility and air volume. if I have the room I will get the 60 gallon stationary one for about the same price, not like it's hard to pull a wire out of my main fuse for 220 V operation. but I don't have the room so I just settle with this. Anyway for those who might buy this, there are 3 things to keep in mind that's not mention in the manual. - Sears does not sell the Semi-Synthetic non-detergent oil this compressor called for. I know what other alternatives that you can use, will not mention them here because I don't want to confuse some noobs who reads this. Solution is you either buy them online (whatever brand it is), or if you have a Lowes Nearby, they sell the Semi-Synthetic Compressor oil for around 7-8 bux per 16oz, get 3 of them, why? read. - I'm not sure what happen but when I unbox my compressor, some oil was found on the motor, plastic case that covers the bell, and some was on the manual. I checked the oil level and sure enough, it's low. the oil plug/level reader is pretty retarded and hard to read. Add oil carefully, it's easy to overfill. After you add oil to it back to the Full mark, follow the instructions in the manual and turn it on to break in - After the break-in (30 mins of operating with the bottom petcock open) , DRAIN THE OIL COMPLETELY and refill it with the extra oil you have around back to spec. Oil goes in completely clear and clean, after the first 30 mins of break-in, its filled with metal particles that you can see easily. yuck. I wonder how many people out there just keep running it like this until 100 hrs or so later and found out their compressor is "not pumping fast/worn out". For me, after the drain and fill, I ran the compressor again for another 15 minutes then drain again, oil comes out much cleaner this time. Fill again, and the compressor has been rocking. oh by the way, don't overtighten the drain plug cuz it might break the rubber seal ... and Craftsman don't have a part # for it, you should be able to find whatever rubber seal that fits, or just get a copper washer to go with it. just something to keep in mind so u don't break it the first time you drain/fill it. Hope this helps.

Deplorable from the get go

After purchase, 2 Sears Employees that loaded laid on side in PU bed. I brought the "Keep Upright, contains oil and my damage if laid down" to the employees attention. Young man attempted to bs me with "won't hurt it" as long as not laid down on face. Got it home & unloaded. Compresser & inside of box covered with oil. Following start up proceedure with oil check, needless to say was low by approx 8 oz. Fortunately I had also purchased Craftman syn compresser oil. Running with no pressure (break-in) for 30 min, seemed good to go. Phase two, break-in, under pressure approaching 140 psi, begins to labor and blows off black plastic bleeder tube from side of Check valve. Shut down and reconnect, turn on and motor continues to labor with rattle until reaching approx 150 psi. Possible Pulley alignment but as new, should not be. Not stable platform with rubber slip on pads as opposed to bolt on rubber feet. Wabbles. Only 1/2 in clearance at drain petcock. Taking back today. Buyers Remorse.

Great value

Starts right up every time. Noise level for this size of a compressor is great.

Junk out of the box

Did the breakin procedure and the thing failed. Wouldn't fire up the first time, loaded motor but no compressor. Had to take it back, total misery. Very disappointed, we'll see how customer service treats us.

2nd Try was a winner

The first compressor had a porosity in the pump cylinder wall so it had to be returned. Quality control should have found this. The second compressor was in perfect shape. Followed the set up and break-in directions and it fills quickly and is much quieter than the oilless version. I re-plumbed the condensate drain with an elbow, longer pipe and a ball valve so it could be accessed as the original is hard to reach and has very limited clearance for your fingers. After that the compressor works great and I'm happy with it.

Great Machine -- But Read the Reviews First!

I ended up choosing this compressor because it just fit under my wall cabinets (30 gallon and up machines are too tall and I didn't want to give up floor space to a horizontal tank). And the price on sale was right! I read most of the reviews - the "good, the bad and the ugly" and thought I might be taking a bit of a chance in buying this model. Any way, I went ahead but took a few precautions: 1) I picked up the compressor at the local store (to reduce chance of damage by carrier some reviewers mentioned); 2) after unpacking it I checked the belt alignment as described in the manual; 3) I checked the oil level before running it; and 4) after running it for the recommended 30 minutes with the drain valve open I changed the oil. It takes about 18 oz. so I suggest picking up a couple of quarts for future changes. I found the right oil on the ********** web site. It is not in the store. Compressor has about 20 hours on it now and is running fine -- and a bit quieter than my two gallon dual-tank pancake style. Heckuva lot more air too!

Great Compressor For Price & Capabilities!!!

I bought this compressor on sale and got it for a great deal. Got it home, performed the break-in as required and changed the oil. Since then the compressor has ran everyday with zero issues. Its really quite compared to my last compressor, and refills itself in less than a minute. Its very conveinent that it isnt to bulky and can be plugged into both 110v and 220v. The only things that slightly bugged me, was that the oil required for the compressor wasn't available at SEARS, but it was at another store that rhyms with Bose for about 7 bucks a bottle (1.5 required). That and the drain valve can be a pain to access sometimes. Either way these two things wouldnt delay me in suggesting or buying this compressor again!!!

At long last a compressor that keeps up

I have owned a few single stage 20 gal electric compressors rated for air tools but they never could keep up. I had to wait and the noise was blasting!! This model at long last leaves me nothing to complain about. It keeps up with every air tool at ********** & ***** models only to return them. I opted for the 2 stage for low noise, longevity and the ability to keep my air supply going strong. This compressor is THE buy for a home unit, you will never be disappointed and the price, well the compressor is worth every penny and then some! If you are at all in the know about air compressors, air tools and the volume required to run those tools the right way stop hesitating and go buy this model.

Great compressor!

I bought this for an operation that previously was done by a much larger compressor. This one provide enough air and is much quieter.

Lots of power and tank endurance.

This air compressor has lots of power and easily runs all my pneumatic tools with minimal to no effort. I was very impressed with how quiet the engine is, minimal noise compared to other compressors of its size. I opted for the stand up version in lieu of the horizontal model. Easier to store. Very pleased with this purchase.

Just finished break-in ....

When I first opened the drain, about a cup full of rusty water came out. Do they pressure test these with water and not get it all out? Accomplished the break-in with no unusual noises. When I ran the first pressure test, just as happened with some other folks, the bleeder line blew off the tank fitting at about 140 psi. I cut half an inch off the plastic hose and pushed it back on. I may try putting some safety wire around it as a make-shift clamp. For a few cents more they could have used a compression fitting on this end like they did on the regulator end.
I'm giving it 3 stars now, may improve my opinion with more experience.

Portable air compressor

I got this product for my husband and I'm so happy with the outcome. He Loves it so much. When he gets off work, he'll change and step right in the garage right away to check in his new toy. He loves how it works and he especially love how quiet it is. It makes his work much easier and gets done faster. These compressor makes him think of more projects to do in the future and keeps him excited about it. His next project is to make a shed for this baby! :)

Great Compressor

I love this compressor. I did a lot of searching and almost ended up going with a different brand but ended up buying this one. Mostly because a mechanic friend has two of them that are still going strong after 9 years of using them everyday. There is a possibility that the parts are not from the same manufacturer but I am hoping this one last a long time as well. I have not had it long so I cant comment on the longevity but it works well and it is very quite. Much quieter than an oil-less compressor. It runs a 3/8 and 1/2" air ratchet pretty well but certainly wont run an air grinder but it doesn't claim to either. I'll keep everyone up to date.

Nice for home garage.

I would suggest spending the extra money for this compressor rather than the "red" one. The noise level is one of the main reasons that I purchased this model. For a garage compressor is works excellent. No problems so far. I rated it a 4 due to price, and the fact that I needed to add a little oil to the compressor before using it. I was not impressed with the filler plug as it's cheap plastic, and the threads were stripped/cross threaded when I got it home. The store ordered me one and replaced it free of charge.

great addition to my tool box

I learned a long time ago when buying tools, it is aleays best to buy the best you can afford. Buying cheap only causes you to replace down the road. This unit will last me a lifetime and will perform to anything I want to do around my home. I will be able to use virturely any type of air tool that I want or need to get a job done effortlessly and quickly.

quiet and works

I had one of the Craftsman 30 gal oil-less compressors for about a year and the noise was too much to bear in the garage. It ran constantly when I was using it which required me to use earplugs. Going to this one was a huge difference in noise alone. It also doesn't need to run as frequently as the other one did either.

I spent quite a while comparing air compressors before purchasing this one. The only other one I saw that was close for price/performance was the HomeDepot Husky model. I purchased that one first and found that it didn't match the description. So I returned it and got this one. I've had it for a few weeks now and I'm very happy with it.
