Compressor was delivered to home in perfect condition. It was easy to remove from packaging by cutting the bottom of the box and lifting it off. After filling it with the supplied oil, it was ready to use. It is a nice size, and fits into a corner of my garage without taking up too much space. It is more than adequate for the majority of my use, including operating 1/2 and 3/4 inch professional quality impact wrences. It appears to have the same motor and pump assembly as another Craftsman compressor I own. It has provided over 7 years of trouble free service. I expect this one will perform similarly.
WARNING: Don't Buy!! First time I used it, air leaked between head and cylinder. I did not expect this from a new compressor. Now Sears wants me to send it off to get fixed! The cut out pressure takes a long time to feel up tank. Totally dissatisfied! Won't buy again from Sears.
The compressor is great! The customer service from the Canton store was truly remarkable. this piece of my order went well. Now the other part! Was so horrible that this one seems small. Sent me a lesser welder, that's 300$ less. And didn't refund the rest. Then my wife's ring package came. With no ring in it. Just the **** invoice. I've contacted sears multiple times. Still not fixed.
I bought the Craftsman when my Sears compressor quit after 28 years.
