I bought this compressor about two years ago. I've used it about eight times. Last week the motor burned up. My prior compressor lasted 25 years. Customer Service had no answers and seemed not to care.

Works as expected
So far I have had this for at least 3 years, I use it to pump up tires and clean off random things. For the above, it has worked as expected, I have had 0 issues. I have not used this for air tools or paint systems, if this is what you are using it for, I am of no help.

Love it.
This is the second one. First bought with 3 nail guns, then bought a framing nail gun. Used it on the complete rebuild of my father in laws home, remodel of my aunts home, remodel of 2 neighbors, then complete remodel of my own home prior to moving away and used it in my old (new home until it gave up the ghost). Hope to get a much use with my new compressor.

Top notch compress that has served me well
I bought this for work with my fixerupper home and it has served me well. It charges up upon activation and provides a consistent amount of pressure for the various attachments I have for trim or other finishing work. It does what it needs to do and is good for the value.
