Bought this compressor and got rid of my pancake compressor, I'd been doing more jobs on my own so I wasn't using my foreman's compressor.

The important thing to look at when you're buying an air compressor is whether the CFM rating of compressor supports the CFM rating of your tools.

This unit produces 3 CFM at 90 PSI; the Features recommend it for light duty tasks like stapling & air brushing. It's made of pro-grade components, but it won't produce the air power needed for a larger air tool.

A framing nailer uses around 4-5 CFM at 70-120 PSI, so this model air compressor does not support that style tool.

Please see our Buyer's Guide for other suggestions on choosing the right Air Compressor for your needs.

Bought Two - Kept Zero
The first one was returned due to the fact that it constantly tripped and took 10-15 attempts to reset.

I got a replacement and got it home, took it out of the box, started it up and the trip switch vibrated loose and the plastic holding bracket broke into pieces. I returned it and bought an Ingersoll Rand for more money but better quality.

Works Well
Works well with my pneumatic tools.

Needs wheels or dolly, though- the weight was surprising.
