I purchased one of these units and was very pleased for about 3 months. The unit ran great and was very quiet for a compressor due to the induction motor. Running it indoors you can actually talk over top when its running and hear the other person. At 3 months the unit stopped working and would only hum without kicking on. After replacing with a new unit I was ok for about 3 weeks and the same problem happened. The issue is the oil level. Hitachi supplies a small bottle of 5w-50 oil and the instructions are to fill on a level surface to a point between the notch on the dip stick. The first time I over filled slightly using about 4/5 of the oil supplied. on the second unit I filled to the required level or about 2/3 of the oil supplied. Both units eventually seized. After speaking with a customer service I found out the supplied oil is premeasured and ALL THE OIL SHOULD BE ADDED. I found Hitachi to have very good customer service, the first unit was replaced and the second serviced at no cost. My opinion is this is a very good unit with a small design flaw on the oil pickup system and instructions which should tell you to add all the oil. Also note, when they say don't operate at more than 10 degrees angle, they mean it. The oil will not get to the crank and the unit will seize. This unit is very small, very portable, extremely quiet unit and supplies 4.cfm @ 90psi all of which is a great combination. I would have given 5 stars except for the lost time and effort of not properly addressing the oil issue for this unit. At the end of the day I purchased a dewalt D55146 oil free unit for a backup as jobsite reliability is key for me. I hope the Dewalt performs better over the long run.

I Have had one of these compressors for a little over 5 years now. It does not start easily without a dedicated 15-20 amp circuit. It also has a hard time starting in temperatures below 60 degrees F. The motor and chassis are built very well. The week spots are the plastic hoses and regulator parts. After 3 years the regulator started to leak and then completely failed a little after 5 years. I just purchased a DeWalt DWFP55130 and love it!
It it much quieter, half the weight and will start on a 1600 watt Generator (the Hitachi EC119SA needs a 5000 watt generator to start). The only drawback of the DWFP55130 is it only puts out three quarters of the air and has lower duty cycle. I typically use my compressor 15-30 minutes a week so the duty cycle is not an issue for me.

Owned this air compressor for 1 year. Used it to frame and sheath a house, sheath and shingle three roofs and trimming out two complete interiors.

My experience is as follows;

Framing
- Compressor kept up with two Hitachi NR90AE framing nailers providing the nailers were not used in "bump" mode for several consecutive shots.
- Barely able to keep up with one Hitachi NR90AE framing nailer in "bump" mode firing several consecutive shots.
- Completely unable to keep up running two Hitachi NR90AE framing nailers in "bump" mode firing several consecutive shots.

Sheathing
- Compressor kept up with two Hitachi NV83A3 coil nailers providing the nailers were not used in "bump" mode for several consecutive shots.
- Barely able to keep up with one Hitachi NV83A3 coil nailer in "bump" mode firing several consecutive shots.
- Completely unable to keep up running two Hitachi NV83A3 coil nailers in "bump" mode firing several consecutive shots.

Roofing (Shingles)
- Compressor kept up running one Hitachi NV45AB roofing nailer applying five nails per shingle.
- At times would not keep running two Hitachi NV45AB nailers applying five nails per single without waiting approx 45 seconds to fully recharge.

Trimming
- Compressor kept up running two MT65A4 finish nailers or two NT50AE2 finish nailers.

I recently purchased a second Hitachi EC119SA for back-up and will run two compressors when "bump" nailing the large framing and coil nailers.

The compressor must operate on a dedicated 15 amp circuit or 20 amp circuit. Due to the oil lubricated pump the compressor can not operate on more then a 10 degree angle.

Think it is about 65 lbs so be ready to lift with your legs! The pressure gauges are calibrated in pretty small print. Mmmm....just be aware. The only serious downside is you'll need to keep a space heater handy if you're running the compressor in temperatures below 45 degrees F. That 50W oil is pretty viscous in low temps. I run the space heater pointed towards the oil reservoir for a couple of minutes and then she fires right up.

I have had this unit for a couple years, with only occasional use filling tires, blowing sawdust out of chainsaws, etc. MAYBE 10 or 12 hours of total continuous run time. Recently the pressure reducer/regulator control failed - I have rarely made changes to the delivered pressure, so I think the part was just defective from the beginning. As others have noted, in cold weather the unit does not start up easily- either trips it's internal breaker or the house breaker. It can take some time playing with it to get it going. In warmer temps this is not a problem.

(Over a year later...) I have run the compressor a lot since I changed out the reducer/regulator, and it has been a good performer since then.
