Puma DD2008 Hot Compact

"Purchased April 2012. This unit is not fancy, but it is hardcore functional. It is designed in Tennessee and manufactured in Taiwan. Taiwan is a Democracy and an ally of the United States. The bearings and crankshaft are industrial quality designed to last 20,000 hours. The welds have superb quality and no poly tubing is used on this unit. The two air lines, supply and regulator sensing are both copper. Upon taking it out of the box and commissioning the unit everthing performed flawlessly. Remember to purchased compressor non detergent oil as none is included. Ran the compressor for 20 minutes as required for break in. THIS UNIT IS QUIET. Much quieter than I expected. The 1720 rpm direct drive motor and pump are super quiet. This is not a 60 decibel ULTRA quiet unit. However I didn't want or need ultra quiet. I wanted performance as in 3.7 cfm @ 90 psi, and a quiet unit. This unit is on par with my belt driven 8 gallon compresor that is 30 years old in sound level. That unit turns at 1100 - 1200 rpm at 2.5 cfm@90. I'm guessing 75 - 80 decibels. You will not be disappointed with the noise level. Unit ramped up to 132psi and recycled at 102 psi. Unit does not bounce around on the floor and is SMOOOTH. Perfect unit for garage. Filling tires, blowing out garage dirt, or running nail guns are no problem. Compact enough to throw in back of SUV. (wght 70#'s) It does come with only one connection point. Unit is stable and will not tip over. I love this unit. If you are thinking about it buy it. You will not be disappointed. Do not buy the big box store unit for 1/2 the price you'll be disappointed in longevity, quality and noise levels."

Nice Little Compressor

"First of all I would like to commend NT stores for honoring their website sale prices. Items on sale on the website may not be on sale in the store. Just bring a printout of the sale item from the NT website and the store manager will approve it.
Anyway this is a jam up little air compressor that has much more air capacity that a pancake but is still light enough to pick up to put in the back of the truck without straining your back. Will run a good list of airtools but it is limited. It's not a garage mate... The most impressive thing is that I expected it to be loud but it's very quiet. Easy to set up, bust it out of the box, add oil (which was disappointingly not included), bolt on the tires then plug it in. I'm very happy with my purchase."
