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.

Broke the first day

The compressor seized on the first day. I ran the compressor through the break in cycle according to the manual. I then drained the tank to blow any moisture out the vent at the bottom, closed it back up, and let it fill. I ran some tools on it, and the third time the motor started after buying it, the compressor stage seized and the circuit breaker blew. Sears is giving me the option of exchanging it or waiting for two weeks to have someone come fix it on site. It weighs over 160 lbs, and has wheels on it, so it is just about the last thing anyone would ever want loose in the back of a vehicle, and opening the box according to the directions means cutting it in half, so there is no real box to return it in. Pathetic.

Plus side, during the brief period in which it was actually working, it definitely ran quieter than the non-pro series compressor.

Good Compressor

|

I shopped around for a compressor similar to this one. This model had the best ratings at 40psi and 90psi. I waited to post a review until I had time to use it. I am pleased with this one. It's not quite as fast reaching 150psi as I would like but it handles the air tools that I use very well. I have another Craftsman compressor that I purchased about 25 years ago (125psi 25 gal). It's still working but I need something stronger. I gave it 4 stars because I rarely give anything 5 stars unless it exceeds my expectations. Cheers!

BRAND NEW and requires maintenance to make it RIGHT.

|

Air connection manifold is located in a horrible / difficult location. In order to make connecting an air hose easy - YOU may find it necessary to re-position the air connection manifold to a more convenient location. Yes, I know I could re-position the air manifold BUT that's suppose to be Craftsman's Design Engineers Job .....

Incredible Compressor!

|

I got this compressor on 5/19/16 as a Father's Day present to replace my 36 year old Craftsman, that has a pin hole in the tank.
I am very impressed with how quiet this unit operates, the speed in which it recovers back to what you have the outlet pressure set to. i would recommend this unit to anyone looking for a quality compressor! When you pick this up from the store, do not lay the box on its' side. You will have an oily mess when you unpack it. The instructions don't mention this, do yourself a favor, change the oil after the 30 minute break in. I found some minor metal particals in the factory oil fill after draining it. One other change I did was to add two straight fittings and an elbow to make the air coupler to come straight out, instead of pointing at the handle. Mine was angled crooked, could not in any way, attach the air hose. Worked out better in the end to change it. I plan to either add an automatic drain for the bottom tank drain, or do something to make it easier to drain the moisture out of the tank. As it it now, I roll it up onto two, two by four's. This compressor is assembled in the USA by Sanborn of Domestic and Foreign components. Again, don't hesitate to buy this unit. You can actually carry on a conversation, while it is running next to you. Good luck to everyone. No, I don't work for Sears. Just pleased that I have something that totally fits my needs and then some.

Great Compressor

|

Great compressor for the money, just make sure to adjust the belt tension and change out the oil when you get it. Extremely quite and powerful, no more loud and slow oil-less air compressors for me!

This compressor is a very quiet and efficient unit. It runs well on 110v and is easy to maneuver around on its air filled rubber tires. The vertical configuration takes up alot less room than the old airless horizontal one that it replaces. It is very quiet and water is drained directly from the bottom of the tank. It has the capability to easily run my air tools and fill my 1 ton dually's tires easily. Would recommend this to anyone.

Very quiet, works as expected

|

I bought this air compressor in 2012 and have never regretted it, the compressor is very quiet, 27 gallons is perfect for my needs, do it yourself backyard mechanic and amateur woodworker. Only thing I am not a fan of is the valve on the bottom being hard to get to. But that is where it needs to be to drain condensation out of the tank.

Great unit!! Arrived in Excellent conditon.

|

Had problems with UPS destroying two air compressors ordered elsewhere I, saw this on Sale. Decided to give Sears a try. Placed the order for Store Pickup. Fortunately it was in stock. Went to pick it up. Box was in Excellent condition. Got it home. Checked the contents. Perfect. Checked the oil. Found it was a little low(About 2 ounces worth). Plugged it in and turned it on. Started right up. Only ran for about 30 seconds. Had to go out and get oil. The store I picked up from didn't have any. It was Quiet compared to my 6 year old direct drive C/H WL6111. Very quiet. When it warms up a bit, I need to install the water separator. And perform the full break in. Then need to remove the old C/H unit from its corner in the garage.
Update: Did the "Break-in". I used a flexible funnel(Can be purchased at an Auto Parts store). Wedged it between the Handle and Pump body. Placed a small oil pan on the floor. 1/2" Ratchet wrench. And away we went. Also checked the Torque on the Head Bolts. Manual states 220-250 Inch Pounds. Roughly 18-25 Ft Lbs. Set mine for 20 Ft Lbs. Good to next oil change.

Good compressor. Needs two minor improvements.

|

Quality, quiet compressor that should meet my home use needs for several years to come. Two design improvements needed would be a drain valve that is easier to access and not oil level sight window to make checking the oil level easier.

1-Year and No Issues

|

I have been appreciative of other’s product reviews, and wanted to provide mine for those considering the purchase of this compressor. My experience has been completely positive with this unit; from online purchase to now nearly a year’s usage. It was loaded onto my truck properly at merchandise pick-up, standing up, it had no mechanical or electrical issues, and its function has been better than I had expected. The only slight problem, which others had mentioned, was with the pressure relief valve. I found it to be a bit touchy, and easily activated. I purposely activated the valve multiple times at full pressure hoping to remove the over-sensitivity, and this has alleviated the problem. I was using a 20-Gal, 1HP, 90PSI Max, Craftsman compressor, which had nearly the same SCFM ratings as this 26Gal, but 30 years older. The difference was night and day between the old and new compressor, when using my impact and air ratchet. With the old compressor I could barely back off lug nuts at 90ft/lbs, and it would take ratcheting for 15-30 seconds to do so. This compressor at 150PSI spins them off instantly. I have this unit in my basement, with a 75ft, 3/8” air line to the garage, a hose reel with 50ft of 5/16” hose, and another 50ft of 1/4” hose tied to that, running the impact. I had none of the electrical problems that others spoke of; however, my electric service for the basement outlet this compressor is tied to is 115V/20Amps. So, I would recommend at least this level of service to avoid any breaker faults. For the home garage mechanic this compressor will be more than adequate for your needs. Best of luck!
