Users of this product said
This is the first time I have ordered from Amazon and I was very happy with it. I had just sold my last upright 20 gal compressor from a major home improvement store and I was excited to get this one.
I knew all of these things when I purchased the same unit for the second time. If you need to do light to moderate work requiring pressurized air, this is a great unit.
It costs more to run a small pancake or hot dog compressor that is oil-less, and less mess, than a larger one that is oil-laden, and that comes at a cost, the life span of the unit.
The oil filler hole was out of round, the inside threads were cracked, and the pressure switch needs constant fiddling to keep it form leaking, but I finally took it in and got a new plate.
The older model was left out under a saw table in the rain, snow, and 100 degree heat, and never had any problems with it.
Question & Answers
What is the noise decibel number?
I use mine in the garage with all the doors closed and can still have a normal conversation or listen to the shop radio, even though I don't know the actual number.
Will it work with a LVLP sprayer?
I don't see why it wouldn't work, the tank is only 2.6 gal and it delivers 3.8 cfm @ 40psi and 3.3 cfm @ 90psi.
Is it possible to use it with a framing nailer?
I've used it to frame a 12x24 workshop and it is perfect. I keep it at 100 psi, but can be raised to 150 psi for tools that require higher pressure.
What will the impact be?
It would make a big impact if you dropped it, as it is heavy with mass. I can usually get a wheel off right before it kicks in.
Is it legit?
Yes, it is.
