Unloading valve - drops compressor head pressure to zero after compressor comes up to pressure which allows the compressor to start unloaded. This preserves life of compressor and the motor which comes up to speed faster, with less motor current, heating and torque on windings.
Double isolated with rubber mountings - the frame has rubber feet and the compressor is rubber mounted to the frame as well. This transfers less vibration to floor. On concrete vibration is undetectable. On floor in house, it is more noticeable, but not objectionable.
Muffler/Filter - The compressor is much quieter than others I've been around, even without the muffler/filter. But muffler/filter drops sound level even more.
Normal things to check (suggested by manual as well). All compressors vibrate and the manual suggests checking every week for any loose bolts, fittings. After running for a couple of hours, I found a couple of loose nuts on the electrical unloading valve and snugged them up. Doubt that they will losen up again and could also be related to temperature. Went from 70 degrees indoors to about 25 in garage on cold day.
See Update below as well - Rolair taking care of this issue. Manual suggests checking air filter as well. I did this and found a surprise there. This quite inexpensive part is undoubtedly provided by another vendor and it's doubtful that Rolair checks the filters before installing them. Mine had metal shavings from cutting inlet tube. I cleaned them out before starting compressor. I also found that the paper filter was not completely sealing the opening, so if the vibration had broken loose some of the metal shavings, they might have made it to the compressor and ruined it. I let Rolair know about this and I hope they send me an upgraded filter, however, I recommend that anyone who gets one of these check the filter first thing and take care of any problems if you find them. Why didn't I mark the compressor down for the obvious problem with the filter? I'm so happy with the compressor, I'm willing forgive a bad supplier on this cheap part....... may come back and revise this if I don't get a response from Rolair.
Update - Rolair is sending replacement air filter and addressing issue with supplier. If you check your filter and find a similar issue to mine, I suggest that you contact Rolair. Couldn't be happier with compressor. Have finished a couple of projects and look forward to more.
The compressor comes up to full pressure (set for about 100 psi) in 75 seconds and when using a nailer, it recharges the tank in just a few seconds. Takes several finish nails before the compressor restarts to recharge the tank. There is about a 10 psi difference between shutoff and restart. The first 11 seconds with empty tank, the unloading valve is open and the compressor warms up a little before it closes and starts filling the tank (This seems like a good thing, but I don't know if it's "normal" operation, have to do some reading). After the tank is pumped up, the unloading valve closes almost instantaneously after the compressor restarts so there is no delay on recharge.
Passing on something I did that worked out well - I wanted to add a filter before air line and tool. Found that with a quick release, 1/4 inch brass elbow and 2 inch nipple, the dimensions were perfect for pinning the filter ($13 from Home Depot) to the frame - put electrical tape on the frame, zip tie underneath to keep it from tipping down and a second zip tie to hold it to the frame. Since I use it at the bench, I didn't add a quick release for the hose. Cutting one zip tie and releasing the quick release, filter and hose come off for transport. (see picture)
I used to resist jobs that required compressor because I hated to listen to the things. Not any more. Makes working around this one enjoyable as any other task.
I've read that the valve at the bottom can be a problem but I so far have experienced no difficulty maintaining pressure in the tank. If the valve does become a problem, a replacement can be purchased for under $10. Beyond that, it cycles quickly and has a very small footprint... Roughly 13 inches wide.
I grant you this hasn't been the most technical review but this area isn't my specialty. I've yet to identify any actual 'cons' but if I absolutely had to nitpick, I guess I wish the gauges were angled slightly upward rather than straight ahead. I've also read some people dislike the regulator but so far I've no reason to complain.
My usage has been limited to running an airbrush between 25 and 50 psi with the upper limit being around 120psi.
The same day, literally 20 minutes or so, I got an email. He apologized and told me that I didn't have to send the entire compressor back and that they would send me a replacement valve. We exchanged a couple of emails and he copied me on the ones he sent to Rolair. Within a couple days I had the replacement valve and installed it in a few minutes. I understand that manufacturing mistakes happen but the difference is in how the seller deals with the mistakes. An example of a company that treated me the opposite way is the maker of my table saw. I'm still waiting (read 1 year and 4 months) for a replacement drive belt.
The Rolair folks are top notch in my book and I would buy from them again without a moment's hesitation.
>>>> An update <<<< I received an inquiry from a potential customer from the Amazon site asking if I knew what material the tank is made of. At the time I didn't know, but I have since taken the time to find out (sort of). I took a shop magnet to the tank and it grabbed a hold of it. So we now know that the tank is ferrous, steel probably. But I don't know what kind of steel. Its definitely not aluminum. Hope this helps.
>>>> Updated review Jan 22 2014 <<<<<<<< Of, so its been 2 years almost to the day since I purchased the compressor. Like I said previously, I only get to my wood shop on weekends, so the compressor doesn't see daily use. But it does see the same kind of use as the rest of the tools in my shop. I can't say enough good things about the little compressor! It may honestly be one of the best purchases I have made for my wood working! I only wish that my table saw and joiner / planer had the same customer commitment that Rolair has! Their motto, form their website says it best " Produce the finest compressors known to mankind." Without any hesitation whatsoever I would recommend any product that Rolair makes!
