Makita's 2.0 HP Air Compressor is equipped with Makita's Big Bore engineered pump cylinder and piston for higher output, less noise and improved job site performance. The MAC700 delivers industrial power and results with improved durability under tough job site conditions.
The MAC700 is powered by a 2.0 HP motor. The Makita Big Bore engineered pump with cast iron cylinder has greater bore and stroke for increased compression, faster recovery and less noise. The cast iron construction is engineered for increased durability even under tough job site conditions. The MAC700 has an oil-lubricated pump and is equipped with a large automotive style filter for increased air intake and greater efficiency. The Big Bore oil-lubricated pump is also more efficient: the MAC700 runs cooler and at half the RPM of most competitive units, resulting in greater motor and pump life and lower noise. The 2.6-gallon tank sustains an operating pressure of 130 PSI, and delivers 40PSI (3.8 CFM) and 90 PSI (3.3 CFM). The low AMP draw reduces instances of tripped breakers and voltage drop that can cause premature motor failure. The roll bar handle provides portability and additional protection, helping it withstand harsh jobsite environments. Additional features include a convenient oil drain and oil sight glass, a tank drain valve that supersedes standard petcock design for easier maintenance, and finned discharge tubing that dissipates heat more efficiently.
Versatile Design for a Range of Applications
The MAC700 is engineered for low noise, high output and less maintenance, and delivers industrial power and results with improved durability under tough job site conditions. The MAC700 is just another example of Makita's commitment to innovative technology and best-in-class engineering.

One other tip. If air starts coming out from under the adjusting knob of the pressure regulator, it does not necessarily mean that you need a new regulator. It may just have gotten dirty. If you are handy, it is a fairly easy matter to take the regulator apart and clean it. Just be sure to pay attention to how the various parts go together. Clean everything, lightly lubricate all of the o-rings with silicon paste.and reassemble. There is a good write-up on doing this here. (It's for the MAC5200, but the pressure regulator is the same):
Hope this helps save you some money.
Read the manual and follow the break-in procedure before using.
After using it for 1 1/2 months, I like this compressor as much as I did when I bought it, if not more. Just FYI. The drop-off in pressure I mentioned in the original review has to do with the air hose I attach to the unit when inflating tires, not the compressor itself.
By the way, make sure that you turn down the output air pressure and use an air hose to empty the air tank when you are done using it, not the valve located at the bottom of the tank.

Original Review: March 12, 2012:
I made this purchase primarily for inflating tires. I got one of those small/mini size portable air compressors that run off cigarette lighters and/or 12V car batteries, but it failed within the first minute. So I decided to get one with some muscle power.
I read lots of reviews for brand names like Husky and Craftsman and of course this one before making my purchase. I was actually quite apprehensive when I placed my order, since there are so many users reporting shipping damage due to poor packaging on the part of Makita. Mine arrived with a small hole in the box--and my immediate reaction was: "There it goes again." But when I opened it, I was relieved to find no visible damage. And it is not as bulky as it might seem to someone like myself who had little experience with air compressors.
I broke the compressor in in two 20-minute sessions and then I let it fill the air tank in 20 psi increments until it finally reached the cut-off pressure of 130 psi. I have used it a couple of times for tire inflation with no issue. The pressure seems to drop off slightly after the tank is filled. I am still trying to determine whether there is some kind of leak. It doesn't seem to be a problem, but I am keeping an eye on it.
Overall, I am very pleased with this compressor. It looks sturdy and well built. And I no longer have to bend over backwards to find gas stations that offer free air. Nor do I need to shell out $1.00 for just a few minutes of air time, which is usually not enough for ensuring proper inflation for all tires. Now I can work at my own pace in my garage and the car tires are always inflated with the correct psi. The savings on gas have already begun......
But I do suggest that you get one of those folding hand carts or dollies. This thing is too heavy to be lifted around; it could hurt your back. (There is a Youtube video showing you how to mount this thing on a folding dolly. In essence, you just put a wooden plank underneath it.)
