This is the 1st time I have used a "hot dog" style compressor. I had a 4 gallon pancake compressor a few years ago that I sold during a money crunch situation. Comparing the 2 compressors: the hot dog is lighter, quieter, and seems to work better for what I use it for. (that being general use things for around the house).

Tools I have used that work well with this: air stapler(1/4"narrow crown 18ga staples of 3/4" to 1 3/4"), brad nailer(18ga 5/8" to 2" brads), angled finish nailer(1" to 2 1/2" 15ga), framing nailer(2" to 3 1/2" 16d nails), palm nailer, paint spray gun(1qt cup gen purpose), air blower nozzle, tire inflator.

Pros: fairly quiet(did not wake the wife sleeping 5o ft away in the bedroom "big+++"), light weight(easily portable), adjustable outlet pressure, 20 ft hose and quick connect coupler included(I have a 25 ft rubber extension hose that can be easily disconnected when not needed). Fairly small footprint(does not require much storage space).

Cons: the low pressure limit switch threshold could be a little higher. If you get a staple, nail or brad that does not sink all the way, it is a sure sign pressure is at the bottom limit of usage for the tool and probably the compressor will start to run at the very next pull of the trigger. "just wish it were a little higher".

Also: will not work well with any tool that requires more CFM such as rachets, impact drivers, sanders, etc. (knew this before ordering so not a big deal for me). Just saying.
Considering I have only had the chance to use it a month, do not know how long unit will last overall; but do not expect it to be a lifetime(20-30yr) thing either.

All in all; pretty good bang for the buck. Better than the "tire inflator" types that are about the same price. Very pleased with purchase, and if needed would definitely purchase one again.

Best price I could find on a portable compressor.Its 120v but,I'm running it off a car battery through a 400watt. inverter.Really nice option in the field. Had a broken rubber foot on delivery.The Rockworth company sent me 4 new ones next day. Very nice.
Came with hose & air chuck with gauge.Light & easy to carry . for $40.00 I probably buy another.

I bought this for its portability. When I don't want to haul my large compressor upstairs for minor projects, I thought this would fit the bill. And, it does. Actually, it will even run my framing nail gun although I'd worry about burning it out if I was doing a lot of nailing with the big gun. With the smaller finishing, stapling and brad nailers it's perfect. Highly recommended some smallish projects.

The first one arrived... The air pressure gauge's plastic screen on the air nozzle attachment was broken. Also, the compressor was very loud and made a weird noise like it had something inside the compressor motor. It sounded like it was about to die. - minus a star on my review.

I called Amazon and they sent a replacement. Once the replacement arrived (took about a week) I sent the defective unit back to them.

The replacement unit arrived in what seems like excellent condition. It still makes a lot of noise when it is filling up the tank with air but nothing like the first unit. The air pressure gauge and air hose arrived in like new condition.

This is a relabeled Husky model as the label on the motor housing was partially cut off. Not to mention that the air pressure gauge has the Husky label still on it (the back side of the pressure gauge).

This unit is perfect for my Badger 150 airbrush. My old tankless compressor died and that is what motivated me to get this unit. Yes, the price also screamed 'buy me'.

Make sure you follow the manual on how to break in the motor.

Important!!! Do not leave the tank filled with air for any period of time. When finished using the unit, use the air drain on the bottom of the storage tank and drain out the remaining air. This helps to expell any moisture that may be inside of the tank. That 'trapped' moisture can cause it to rust from the inside out if you do not do this.

I took the risk on a refurbished unit. I had to do an exchage but in the end it all worked out.

My daughter gave me this for Christmas. Even though it is reconditioned it looks new, isn't too heavy and the handle makes it easy to move around.

The instructions say to run it for 10 minutes with the tank drain open to break it in; I did and noticed it ran well and is quieter than I expected for a compressor. Then I shut it off, closed the drain valve, and turned it on. In less than 5 minutes the tank pressure gauge read 102 psi and the compressor shut off. I slowly released the pressure and the compressor came on when the gauge indicated 65 psi.

It is not a heavy-duty air compressor designed for big jobs like painting a house, or impact wrenches. Instead, it should excel at smaller jobs around the house, such as: inflating tires, blowing out home air conditioning/heating filters, blowing car air filters, inflating balls and pools, blowing dust from lawnmowers and motorcycle engines, cleaning dust and shavings from the work area, perhaps even small spray painting jobs like lawn furniture, etc. I know I will come up with other uses for this as days go by.

It comes with a good length of coiled hose with a female quick disconnect attached to one end and a threaded fitting to screw it to the compressor on the other end. The included tire inflator has a male quick disconnect to attach it to the hose. Amazon shows a hose and tire inflator as 'FREQUENTLY BOUGHT TOGETHER' with this item, but they are already included! In fact, the inflator appears to be the same one as in the photo of frequently bought together, except mine has a quick disconnect that mates with my hose quick disconnect, while the one in the photo has a threaded connector.
