Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Price, ease of use, reliable
Cons:A little loud
Bought this new in April 2000 from Sears when they had a nice sale. They combined this unit with a hose, air ratchet and a sprayer making it a steal at $299.99

The unit was packaged well and was very easy to assemble and get started. The only extra you will need is an air drier to keep moisture out of your tools. Also, I invested in an extra long hose and some extra quick release fittings for my tools.
So far, the unit has operated all the air tools that I need but you will find that the tank capacity will cause the unit to run often if using a continuous use tool like an air sander. The unit operates on a standard outlet which is helpful if you need to move the unit from one location to another.
Cons: The unit is noisy, but for garage use I guess it is acceptable. Putting this unit in an indoor basement workshop might cause a noise problem.
Overall, I am very happy with this product as it is the most you can get for $300. Like everything else in life, if you can afford a larger capacity unit, buy a bigger one, but this one will do the job.
