Customer reviewsI had read some pretty good reviews on this one
I had read some pretty good reviews on this one, and decided to order it. Having been looking around, I found that most 6-gal. pancake compressors were 1 - 1.5 HP. I couldn t find the horsepower rating on this one s advertising, specification list nor the manual. Finally I went to the company website and sent them an email asking what was the HP rating. The next day I received their reply and was disappointed to hear it was only 0.8 HP. So with that I decided to let its performance show its worth. It came two days later fast . After reading all instructions I turned it on, watching the time it took to reach its max 150 psi. I was surprised it took only less than 3 minutes With hoses and a tire filler installed I waited a half hour and checked the pressure gage, and it had not shown any noticeable pressure loss. I topped off the tires of both my car and truck and then bled the pressure off. I then turned the unit around, over, upside-down and inspected it over-all for general quality Weldment, materials, components and workmanship. Evidently it manages its power well enough to arrive and maintain its pressure rating, and seems sturdy and well made. Btw, I am a retired Quality Assurance Specialist for the U.S. Department of Defense. If I were to inspect this product for acceptance on a gov t contract, I would have no problem giving it my stamp and signature. Bottom line, a nice little compressor, especially at that sale price
