Verified Purchase
i am a roofing contractor so i shoot millions (literally) of nails. don't know about the cold weather issues, can't say on that - i am in SoCal but i can tell you that these little Hitachi electrics are the best out there. I've used Campbell Haus, Husky, Dewalt, Rigid, POrter Cable - the list goes on. Right now i have around 12 compressors.

one of the best ones, for small electric units, are the Hitachi.

I have a pile next to our tool room of broken Campbells and others and for sure don't buy the Husky - total garbage (I've got 3 of those in the pile, they cannot be fixed).

Campbell Haus used to be american made, in fact i have a 12 year old gas unit up until last year when it finally catostrophically failed. now of course they are not american made.

If you even take these other models to a compressor repair company they wno't fix them for you. The hitachi can be repaired and it's worth it, usually.

If you want your compressor/tools to last get a good in line filter and water remover (when air compresses, it gets very hot, condenses water vapor and you get water in the line, the tank, your tools, etc). A decent filter can run $50.

if there is a compressor out there "made to work in freezing temps" i've never seen it advertised and i suspect there isn't muich diff between them in that regard but can't say for sure. didn't realize it was a problem, i admit but saying these htiachis are junk, not so, i can assure you.

I have had this A/C for years and never a start issue, even at 30*F, but I use their spec.for oil, synthetic diesel type. NOT 30w. Rotella Shell 6T is the best. Use tha in all my A/C's. That is why the bad review . Also you need a 12ga or larger ext. cord if you are using one. 4 stars b/c the design could be better, no roll cage,gauge panel... hard to add filter and extra QD's without them sticking out and almost ensuring damage.

Purchased this exact model in 2002. I use this for cabinet and trim install. Works excellent with 15-18 ga nailers. Even use occasionally for my air drill when installing cabinets. Will turn on after each hole drilled but still maintains enough pressure for light use with this type of tool. This unit lasts. I have used it at least 1200 hours and my regulator went bad( from me banging it in to stuff) and its not worth $100 for the switch assembly( toolpartsdirect). I am only replacing because I get a new compressor for $195. Brand new for $95 more. ([...]) Anyway, this is a great buy, considering similar model are $250+ and the oiled cylinder will stay clean and maintain good compression as long as you change the oil once or twice a year depending on usage. Great for home enthusiast, good for commercial/construction.

I bought a Hitachi compressor to run a nail gun while replacing my garage roof. The salesman told me his personal experiences had been good with the same model. When running my unit seemed adequate for the job at hand. It was the running that was unreliable. The compressor was extremely sensitive to cool temps failing to start and tripping the thermal overload shutoff. If the unit was left in the garage overnight in mid 40 degree temperatures it would not start. The temperature was never even close to meeting the low temperature range advertised. The starting problem continued to get worse to the point it would rarely start even warm. Another problem developed where the unit would shut off well before reaching the upper pressure limit of 135 PSI. The performance was entirely unacceptable.The Hitachi authorized service center has had the unit for three months and has been unable to get parts for the repair. The first unit failed in a similar way and I got a like replacement within 30 days. The second unit started to fail the same way and I should have brought it back inside of 30 days.

I just opened my EC89 about 2 weeks ago having bought this at least a year ago. Initial start of the compressor was fine... building pressure and all that. I turned it off, and didn't get back to it a week later and the thermal reset kept kicking in. I called Hitachi Customer Service and he asked if I was on an extension chord... blah blah blah .. tried it without an extension chord ... works the same; thermal switch kept kicking in. But before calling Hitachi, it was obvious the switch was kicking in due to "stress". Stress? ... yeah .. like it's lacking the "power" to keep the compressor going. Me knowing somethings here and there, I asked the rep. if there were any problems with the starter cap? He said "no". Then today, I find a comment on this product on the internet.. indeed they do have a problem with the design. Apparently, the initial starter cap. was 40 microfarads and to over come the starting issue is to replace the starter cap. with a 60 microfarad capacitor. Apparently also, a new version has the 60 microfarad cap. I will inquire again with Hitachi Tech Support about this issue to see if they will fix this for me. Hitachis Tech Support said there is no issue with the unit nor are there any recalls; so thumbs down to them. I don't know what version of the EC89 I have, but I asked Lowes if they will take it back and they said they will as long as they are still selling the unit. Coincidentally, they were still selling the unit. It has been a year since I got this unit and I'm assuming the "new" EC89s probably were designed with a higher rated starter cap. I was in luck; returned it to Lowes, got store credit and spent an additional $150 for an assumed better compressor "DeWalt D55146".Read more ›
