4.0 out of 5 stars Needs better instructions, August 31, 2010

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Senco PC1131 Compressor, 2.5-Horsepower (PEAK) 4.3-Gallon (Tools & Home Improvement)
I have used this compressor for a few days now with a coil framing nailer and it works fine, has plenty of capacity for one gun, and is relatively quiet.

I would give it 5 stars except that packaging is poor and instructions for initial set-up are also poor. The compressor ships in its original retail box, not double boxed, and mine was torn open and then re-taped. The box says an oil bottle is included and there is space for it in the box, but in fact Senco is shipping with oil in the compressor and no oil bottle (I found this confusing as it looks like the oil bottle was stolen or missing). The air filter comes unattached and you have to figure out where to attach it on your own (a little sketch would be helpful for the spatially challenged). The air inlet has a plastic plug inserted so don't start your compressor before finding and removing the plug and attaching the air filter.

Finally, if you do happen to have a major problem such as a dead compressor, Amazon will not accept a return ("too dangerous") and will simply refer you to the distributor.

These may be nit-picky points, but I thought I would throw them out there to possibly help some one else considering this compressor.

Regarding "Amazon will not accept a return ("too dangerous") and will simply refer you to the distributor."

Will the Amazon extended warranty "Square Deal" replace or repair these if required?

Don't know about the square deal. I took my compressor to a local authorized shop that will repair it (a leaky guage). Downside is it will take 10 days for parts. I think in the future for such large heavy items I will try to buy locally.
