"I have owned this compressor for just under a year. I use it for sand blasting and painting, I also use it for a whole shop full of air powered tools. I have found it to be very efficient and up to any task that I have set it to so far. I would highly recommend this for anybody considering this size compressor"

"Powerful and well built. Easy to install. Solid cast iron with attractive matt powdercoat finish. Haven't even come close to maxing out the air supply."
