WOOD magazine review

Our favorite hand-carry compressor

Review Summary

The more we worked with this unit, the more we liked it. It features fast fill-from-empty and recycle times. The unit is lightweight (39 lbs) and easy to carry. The cord wraps at the intersection of the motor housing and tank and features a cord clip on the plug. The 1-3/4”-diameter easy-reading hose gauge is located on the top of the motor housing and the 1-3/8” tank gauge is mounted on the side. No confusing these two. A large, easy-to-grasp soft-grip knob controls hose pressure.
Two well-protected manual quick-connect ports are provided. •High Points: Lightweight and portable. Excellent hose gauge and regulator knob. Good fill-from-empty and recycle times. •Low Points: Drain is not at bottom of the tank. When tipping the tank to drain it, the valve hits the floor. •Other Points: Lighted push-button power switch located on top of the motor housing. An otherwise good owner's manual neglects to tell you to open the tank drain during unit break-in. ¼”x25’ hose with quick-connect fittings and inflation kit included.
