Relatively quiet

In contrast to the last Craftsman compresser I bough (which is still working well after 10 years) this one is much quieter. Two quick connects for output allow you to set up one side to go through a filter or dehumidier while leaving the other side for inflating. Like most compressors this size, the drain on the bottom is difficult to reach. Spend $20 and replace this with an elbow, a 6" nipple and a ball valve and you will be able to easily bleed the water out of the bottom of the tank.

Died the first day I used it

We bought this compressor at the end of October. I unpacked it and plugged it in and it worked, but I didn't really use it until last month (March). After only an hour or two, it started throwing the breaker and shooting sparks out of the motor. I tired it on a dedicated 20 amp outlet and same thing happened - definitely a problem with the compressor. I loaded it up and took it back to Sears for a replacement. I understand things like this can happen and I didn't expect any problems. To my dismay, since it had been more than 60 days since I bought it, they wouldn't swap - I had to send it back to be repaired. That's when the nightmare began. Long story short, more than 4 weeks later they don't even have the parts yet. I've repeatedly requested them to just replace it, but they don't have the authority to make that decision. When (if) they finally fix or replace it, I'll grudgingly try it again. What choice do I have? I sure wish I had bought a different compressor from a different company. Even HF will quickly replace defective products. Good customer service can offset marginal products.

No Good


I bought this compressor to upgrade an old oil type Campbell Hausfeld. I wish I still had my old one. This Craftsman I bought because it seemed to have more capacity but less than a year later with very little use the regulator valve started to leak and it wouldn't hold pressure at the hose end. I ordered a new manifold for it and low and behold used it less than a year and same thing happened. I ordered another regulator valve. This is the third and last one. I will never again buy a Craftsman compressor.

Great quiet compressor


Runs great and 33 gallons gets you through enough work for home renovations and project. Just under industrial use. Very nice !

No way does it begin to keep up


I was installing a new coal stove in my garage and had a little 6" cheap Lowe's tin chimney pipe tin knocking to do. This POS couldn't keep up with a small craftsman cut off tool with a new thin cut off disk. Had to stop 4 times to build air enough to cut another couple inches. Amazing
