A lot of bad reviews in here

A lot of bad reviews in here, and they all say one of two things : 1. I work in a shop and have experience and it's junk. (Why the heck did you get a home unit for your business? Your experience is worthless.) and 2. It had no power! (I can't speak to your particular set up, but my 6 gallon does just fine.)
Sure, I bump the psi up to 110 psi at the regulator on the compressor - but that equates to 90psi under load at the gun (50ft 3/8 hose.) That's how you're supposed to dial in the regulator. It's rated at 90 psi under load. If you set it to 90 at the tank and are trying to use a long hose or 1/4" hose, it's not gonna work right on 65 psi at the gun. Duh. That's how compressors work.
My little Bostitch pancake has no issues pulling all 4 tires off without psi drop at the gun. (It's a 150 psi tank.) Compressor turns on at 120 psi, which is right after removing the second tire. I walk around and do the next two tires, there is 130 on the tank, and it runs as I remove the last 2 tires.
This tool feels well made and seems perfect for the garage. Putting the tires back on, I use a 100lb torque stick and every lug is right at 98-102.
For every one who actually knows how to use a compressor and just wants one in your garage, this is prefect.
