Near Perfect
I use it for automotive, woodworking, trim carpentry and to frighten domestic animals. It hasn't failed to keep up with me yet. Can't quite manage one handed grip when moving it but worth using two.

Has been very good
I was on a job recently with some other compressors - the Makita stood out, quiet, build quality, air output and overall quality. It is heavier than some but I think it is worth the effort to move around and not that bad once you figure out how to handle it. I have been using it for over a year now - have not regretted the purchase.

talk- don't yell
I prefer to use it for everything b/c it's so quiet. I can hear cut measurements even standing next to it.

Great compressor. This unit delivers great CFM w. a very low amperage draw. This means it won't trip an ordinary 15 amp household circuit when it starts up.

Very quiet, too.

Makita compressor. One of the best on the market in my opinion.
This is got to be one of the best compressors I've ever purchased. I like the quietness of the compressor. And I can do a hell of a lot more work. I don't have to wait for it to build up pressure after my first six or seven nails. The design and the look of it is awesome. I love this compressor.

Perfect for what I need it to do.
I use this product in my personal studio with pneumatic tools like spray guns, nail guns, and sander/grinders with no loss of power or pressure.

The quietest compressor out there!
This compressor was purchased primarily for its size, capacity, and decibel rating. So far, it has lived up to all expectations. A great compressor!

can this run a framing gun
hmmm on Nov 5, 2012

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-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.

  • The tool has been abused, misused or improperly maintained
