The heart of Makita's high pressure pneumatics is the 2.5 HP High Pressure Air Compressor, model AC310H. With a high-pressure 1.6 gallon tank, the AC310H provides the same capacity as a conventional five-gallon tank at 120 PSI, but with less noise and a more compact size for easier transport. In addition, the AC310H is engineered to run high pressure and conventional nailers.

Highly-Efficient Two-Stage Pump
The AC310H has a more efficient four-pole induction motor operating at 1,720 RPM for greater displacement at lower RPM with lower noise, and a highly-efficient dual-head (two-stage) pump that builds up to 400 PSI capacity. The low AMP draw reduces the incidence of tripped breakers and voltage drop during start-up.

The AC310H has dual capacity, with two universal couplers for conventional nailers (3.6 CFM at 90 PSI) and two couplers for high pressure nailers (2.7 CFM at 300 PSI). It has an oil-less pump for maintenance-free operation, with a roll cage and kick plate to withstand extreme jobsite environments. The large rubberized bumpers are designed for added durability, with large regulator knobs for easier adjustments.

The AC310H is engineered with High Pressure Technology that dramatically increases air pressure created in the compressor and delivered to pneumatic nailers. The result is a superior power-to-weight ratio, and a more efficient system than conventional compressors. The AC310H is just another example of Makita's commitment to innovative technology and best-in-class engineering.

Cheap regulator for such an expensive compressor. The high pressure regulator failed during testing the compressor for the first time out of the box. I received a new regulator under warrantee. I disassembled the old regulator to find out what happened. The threaded shaft for adjusting the pressure is made of steel with very fine thread. The nut that it runs through is made of soft brass. The threads in the brass are striped clean through. Because of the inferior materials used I can foresee this happening again and again.

Makita AC310H 2.5HP High-Pressure Air CompressorMakita AC310H 2.5HP High-Pressure Air CompressorThe Makita AC310H 2.5HP High-Pressure Air Compressor I bought it from Amazon.com, it failed right out of the box, just like the rest of the reviews said, it leaked everywhere, never built pressure to 400, ran constantly, only got to 300 psi, the HP guns shoot at 320. It leaked when running from the head area, but when off no leaks, it's a failure of design passed off to USA. The Max high pressure, the compressors work well, light too, when the $1,400.00 to 1,500.00 item quits you'll not find a repairman or customer service, around, My 2 came back after a year in parts in a box saying a new one was cheaper than fixing either of the two (2) so $1,500.00 throw away compressors, get used to it. I'll be selling all six guns, but with a conscience, should I cheat someone? Or should I take my pleasure out with a sledge hammer, or a hood ornament for an Eitsil (Fords failure)It was pretty cost effective when using the concrete nailer less than half the cost of the Hilti, ramset, but factoring in the throw away compressor cost, and time dealing with a non-repairable item, as the Makita too. Buyer Beware run, don't walk, away from these items, it's a puzzle designed to beat you. The Makita AC310H 2.5HP High-Pressure Air Compressor is a hood Ornament for a junker. Amazon should not push this item, it's disappointing at least.

I bought this air compressor hoping to replace a makita MAC2400 that I had. I did not have a specific use for the high pressure system, but I liked the idea of high pressure for the future. I dont believe this compressor makes air as fast as my old one. If they had two hot dog tanks on it, I think it would be and awesome machine. But it doesn't catch up on air vary fast. It does run quiet and doesn't draw a lot of power. I think I will go back to my old compressor for my next purchase.

I'm a GC, and I bought the makita HP compressor & framing nailer two years ago. At the time there were no reviews here, and only a brief write up on some tool review website. I bought it because Im a bit of a tool junkie, and getting a new toy makes framing walls seem like more fun. Anyway, I figured I'd throw in my brief thoughts after reading all the negative reviews.
Mine works great, I love how quiet it is, how quiet the gun is, and oddly enough I love the makita hose more than anything else.
The gun is crazy light. Use it for a week then pick up a regular coil framing gun full of 3" spikes. This could be an exaggeration but it feels 5lbs lighter.
The compressor however is NOT crazy light. It's all motor, which I suspect is made of some tungsten lead super alloy. I move it around at night or other lowlight conditions, so nobody sees me struggling to tote this small compressor.
Full disclosure- I've probably used this thing a total of 80 hrs. It's too nice for my guys to mangle, so it's locked up in my private tool section where the gremlins can't get to it.
All in all, it's a novelty to me. It's cool, looks sweet and is fun to use. I've never used it for anything that a regular gun and compressor couldn't have done. If you've got money to "waste" maybe you'll like it too.

Although we love Makita, and dearly wanted as quiet a compressor as possible, when we read all the reviews here we felt we might be taking a chance upon this purchase!
We learned a simple lesson worth passing on.
Like all men, the day the compressor arrived first thing out of the box my husband and his friend immediately plug it in and listen to how quietly it ran! Which was beautiful!
Then . . . . we load it up, haul it to our flooring job all excited to use this air compressor NOW!
Get it up there, rig the lines turn it on, without looking first did not know both the regulators were pre set to MAX! And we can in no way back them off! The Amazon reviews warned us of regulator issues, Heck I had already called our service center and said “what if we have . . “ No joy they just will not turn by hand! We’ve drained the tank, no still no good. Do we get out the big mean wrenches! NO WE DO NOT! We turn off, unplug . . . sigh and say ok we’ll take it down to service center tomorrow.
I have to say it was my husband with the brainstorm! Next morning he says . . I wonder . . . and goes out to our vehicle where it sat in waiting . . .
Both regulators turn with the greatest of ease! My husband backed both off to minimum settings and ever since no troubles all all - our range (and we are only using the lighter side) is about 100 psi, we have no issues adjusting in our comfort range!
Our theory about this: this compressor is factory tested before shipping. Factory tested at maximum setting! Most people who purchase one, what is the first thing they will do? Why plug it in see if it will run of course!
Once turned on, if set at that maximum setting, the extreme pressure built up behind the regulators do not allow the said regulators to be backed off!
