"I feel that I have to give this air compressor 5 stars even though it was a frustrating couple of days with it. This thing showed up on a truck, mounted to a wooden pallet. The delivery driver was nice enough to movie it to my garage. Open it up, looks extremely high quality compared to the other brands I looked at. Which is why I gave it 5 stars. Its all heavy gauge steel, everything feels sturdy even the handle which is weird looking. The deck of the compressor IMO offers the option of putting just about any replacement parts on it. Just drill new holes if you need them, it's a flat plate of steel.
Copper tubing on this unit is nice, looks like it's 1/2in, but I haven't measured. All the gauges and regulators look high quality, they work well so far.
The compressor has plenty of power for what I want it for. 7.1cfm at 90 is hard to find at 110v. Even this compressor pulls hard on 110v. It's pretty quite, you can talk over it, but don't expect whisper quiet. It's like almost standing next to a diesel truck or something, where you hear the thumping of the pistons.
Things to note: This is really heavy, it says 155lbs but ship weight is 238lbs. And it feels like it. This unit "works" on a 110v 12gauge wire with a 20amp breaker. MUST BE THE ONLY THING ON, or it will blow the breaker. I'm not kidding. Even the lights must be off, and I use the eco bulbs. You may just want to get a 220v cord for it if you have it available. The Belt guard is PLASTIC, but fully in closed. It looks/feels sturdy. But I would have preferred metal at this price point. Wheels are plastic, but look very strong. Gauges are easy to read, right up front screwed into machined blocks of metal. About the oil, I'm not sure how to change it on this unit. Other brands it was obvious where the drain plug is, but I don't see it on this one.
Made in USA from what I can tell, and very high quality. I'm hoping this unit will last me a good long time. I was always told its more expensive to buy cheap tools then quality tools. They just last longer."

"Update to previous review.
Air compressor has been working great, use it all the times. The minor issues of blowing breakers appears to be the bad circuit I was using, either that or the machine just "broke in". Haven't had an more issues with it. It's had all kinds of duties from impact wrenches to nail guns. Even textured a ceiling in my bedroom. Well worth it."
