  • Get blown away

    Dec 16, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: a good deal for the money
    Cons: noisy

    Summary: My wife got me this compressor in Dec. 1999 for Christmas, I was tickled to death to get it. I was going to get my wife a new vacuum cleaner for Christmas, but she wouldn't talk for a few days after I mentioned it. Mens work must be more fun than ... read more

  • Good compressor

    Mar 27, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Compact, powerful & easy to maintain and use. Portable too!
    Cons: Very loud!

    Summary: I bought this compressor in the beginning of 2001 and have been very happy with it. It has all the power I need for anything around the house and now has a 30 gallon tank. I didn't want to regret the smaller tank so I opted for the larger one over the 20 ... read more

  • Great start for air tools

    Jul 10, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price, ease of use, reliable
    Cons: A little loud

    Summary: 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 ... read more

  • A good, reliable tool for the price

    May 10, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: versatility, price
    Cons: 25 gallon tank is sometimes too small

    Summary: I bought this product to get my garage started on air tools. Yes, a larger, belt driven 220 volt compressor with about about a 120 gallon tank would be better, but I wouldn't be able to take that big bubba around the property as easily. This ... read more

  • It Blows ..that's the point

    Mar 12, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Plenty of power for the price, easy set up, portable and takes little space
    Cons: Loud.

    Summary: Have you found yourself needing to blow off parts a lot? Do you own a chain saw that has oily saw dust packed in every crevice? Have you found yourself wishing you had a rattle wrench when you rotate tires to ease the fight of taking lug nuts off? Do ... read more

  • Airs to you

    Dec 19, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: takes less space, good capacity
    Cons: louder than belt driven

    Summary: I bought this compressor to replace an older one that I had with less power, The 5.5 HP is a nice machine and I do like the fact that it is a vertical unit, It surely does take up less space than other floor models. The only major draw back of this that ... read more

  • THIS IS JUNK!

    Rated Show
    Pros: None
    Cons: Junk - waste of money.

    Summary: Mine blew apart - and I mean blew apart. The con rod snapped and blew parts all over the garage. Nobody was hit. I had to run outside and hit the breaker. After looking at the motor housing that shattered, it's made out of cheap pot metal. Sears used ... read more

  • Not a heavy duty unit!

    Rated Show
    Pros: Cheap and easy to get, looks good, good for occasional, light use.
    Cons: LOUD, poor CFM, didnt last long

    Summary: I had this compressor and in all honesty I worked it pretty hard for a home shop type of unit. It worked marginally well running auto fab shop type of air tools such as die grinders and angle grinders. It seemed to take a long time to pump up and was ... read more
