used for everyday roofing and both had same flaw the aut unloading valves are junk
Ok, let me say that before I bought this I read all reviews on it. Noticed 2 things, one if bolted down worked fine, if used like a wheelbarrow, leaked oil when moving out of pump vent. That led me to believe there was a small problem with the vent. All the good gas compressors have virtually the same setup, Honda GX motor, and compressor pump. The problem with pump turned out to be design flaw by manufacturer(put the fill/vent hole on lower side of pump, instead of upper) easily fixed for less than 10.00 Remove the upper o rings(useless anyway) drill and tap for 1/4 in brass elbow, threaded on one side, compression fitting on other( icemaker fitting ). Install using pipe tape to seal with compression side up. Run either copper or plastic tubing up and back past pump toward handles ( if plastic make sure to keep away from heat ) That way when you tilt it up oil will go into tube and run back into pump when set down. Had an engineer friend examine this unit, and we are in agreement, this is as good or better than anything else in its class, and hundreds less. Read the instruction book, as there is a lever on the unloader valve that makes starting much easier. Never use ethanol fuel in these motors. Read one review said pump developed major leak, within a month, but I bet they did not take out the plastic plug and install breather per instructions. Would give 5 star rating except for the breather.
Keeps me from having to carry a generator and air compressor. Now I have it all in one....
