Great for the money
It pumps up to 110# fairly quick. It's noisy. It's light weight yet sturdy. I pumped it to 110 psi and hand carried it to a completely flat tire. It inflated the tire to 20 psi on that one tank.

Works fine but very, very loud.
Very, very lound. Bought this at at a big box retailer because of good price. Considering returning it. Manual and specification do not include loudness in decibels.

Best budget Air Compressor, can't go wrong with this!
Amazing to use for anything an air compressor can do! It's great to pump up a flat tire, cleaning dusty components for hobbies, using a nail/staple gun, and also for air brush painting. I've used this product for all of these things and I couldn't be any more satisfied. I have a full time job working in a wood shop and this is a great product to go from making crafts at work to bringing them to the house!

The NOISIEST machine I've ever encountered
This is without a doubt the NOISIEST machine I've ever encountered. The 85 dBa claim is a fairy tale; the actual noise level is more like 100-105 dBa. It's downright PAINFUL to be near, even with my moderate hearing loss, and I can't imagine how this ever received the green light for production. It's nice that it's small, lightweight & inexpensive but not at the expense of starting feuds with my neighbors and giving children nightmares.

The Little Engine That Could
Excellent value for the money. Good for light to moderate work. I used it to frame a fence and found it to be a bit underpowered for my job but that's because I didn't want to spend almost twice as much for the next size up. The coil hose is a nightmare working outdoors if the unit isn't right next to you. The 25' length is actually 10' practical use as it keeps getting caught up on itself and its so lightweight I don't want to kink or tear it. Incredibly noisy, wear earplugs.

Small Things Come In Good Packages.
As a retired Union Carpenter I'm always looking for compressed air for odds and end jobs around the home. The great thing about this portable unit is, It's light, small, and works well for SMALL jobs. If I want or need greater volume or more air I can turn on my 90 gallon unit. Only problem with that is, I have to bring the work to the air.

I tried filling a air mattress and after 45 min. the mattress was less than half full
I finished it with a small portable plastic blower/pump (That takes a 9 volt battery)
and it filled it much quicker,
The product "Campbell Hausfeld FP209499 3-Gallon Air Compressor" also makes
a Huge amount of noise for the very small air volume it pushed out....
I work in the "Instrument and Control" section of a Power Plant so I understand
What topped it off is when I called Campbell Hausfeld's Tech. Support they informed I most likely
did not break it in properly. and the Rep was very Defensive and Rude.

I have had my compressor for right at 1 year. It has been used sparingly, 2 times on a car, 1 time on a golf cart and 1 time on a lawn tractor. I used it on a car 2 days ago (second time). I went to my shop today and wanted to use the air blower to remove dusting. The unit did not start up. Checked plug-ins, etc. Any ideas?

Will this thing power a framing nailer?
O.B. on Mar 1, 2015
