    Cons

      Best Uses

      • "some" Air Tools

      • Many Plasma Cutters

      Comments about 1.6 HP 15 Gallon Oil-Free Wheeled Portable Workshop Air Compressor:

      Had this thing now for three years at my house. I use it primarily for my Miller 375 X-Treme plasma cutter, set at 90psi output. It works perfectly for this use. To power a good air impact wrench however, my guess would be that it doesn't produce enough SCFM's. At 5 SCFM, one needs at least 8 SCFM's for good air impact wrenches.

        Comments about 1.6 HP 15 Gallon Oil-Free Wheeled Portable Workshop Air Compressor:

        I purchased my first compressor from a yard sale and used it for many auto repairs. When that one finally gave up the ghost I bought this one and was stunned at the difference the added CFM did for my tools. I not only work my vehicles, but also people from my parish, basically, it gets used a great deal!

        Reconditioned Compressor Unreliable

              Comments about 1.6 HP 15 Gallon Oil-Free Wheeled Portable Workshop Air Compressor:

              The compressor was reconditioned and shipped without a box. There was a dent in the motor housing and within a day the compressor worked intermittently. CPO requested that we had to put the compressor in a box to ship it back even though it was sent without packaging. Thankfully, I had a Porter Cable compressor to finish the hardwood floor project.

                Although I have only had the compressor for a couple of weeks, it seems to meet my needs perfectly. Time will tell how well it will hold up.

                New Vs. Reconditioned

                Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.

                • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
                • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
                • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee;
                  New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
