Hitachi has been making quality construction tools for a long time, and that experience shines in this compressor we've chosen for our Better slot.

The wheelbarrow configuration allows a large compressor to be moved around a job site, and up & down ramps for transport. The over-sized tire, vibration-absorbing feet, and fully enclosed belt cage are nice professional-grade touches.

We especially like the commercial grade Honda GX160 engine that powers this unit. It's easier to start... more

Warning! Junk!
I became self employed and buy two hitatchi gas compressors. I used to use rol-airs but bought hitatchi because they are cheaper than rol-air. Both compressors malfunctioned within the first year with the exact same issues.

They would run fine for 5-10 minutes and then they would suddenly make an EXTREMELY loud rattling noise and shut off. They also would spit oil at times and I had them both fixed under warranty but after a couple months it happened again to one of them (same issue).

Don't Buy One Of These
These are absolutely the worst compressors I've ever owned We run a framing company based in Alberta Canada and have run Gennies for years, I was convinced by a local nail supplier to switch to Hitachi and let me tell you worst mistake ever. Do not purchase a gas powered Hitachi if you are going to use it in any commercial application as it will not last.

Their customer service is absurd and they will not resolve any warranty issues. The pumps leak, the pressure regulators leak, the... more

Durable And Reliable Compressor
I work in the oilfield and needed a gas powered compressor that could handle an automatic grease gun for greasing industrial pumpjacks, airing up flat tires, and running a decent impact wrench.

I have never bought any Hitachi stuff before and I admit that I was a bit reluctant, because I like to go with names I have experience with.

After I bought the unit, I took off the rubber feet and the tires, and bolted it down to my truck bed. I have dragged that poor compressor through rain,... more

Great Unit For The Cost!
Got mine as a scratch and dent. It is mounted to a deckover trailer and we just run the hoses we need to the site. Runs a long time on very little gas (I think it only holds a gallon, maybe two?).

I have been keeping up on the maintenance with the help of online websites and haven't had any trouble.
Pros: Reliable, Easy To Store, I'd Buy It Again, Mountable
Cons: Loud, Breather Spits Pump Oil, Pneumatic Throttle Sticks

Pump Oil Leak- New Unit
I bought this new, lifted the unit by the handles to move around a job site while it was turned off. Oil is leaking out of the pump air intake valve.

It happens every time I move it, so now it is low on pump oil. Hitachi has a bad design on this one. I should have bought another Emglo/Jenny wheelbarrow compressor.

This unit has a 1 year Factory Warranty from Hitachi since you bought it new. You can use the Service Locator link at the bottom of our website to find the Authorized Repair facilities closest to you, or give the folks at Hitachi a call, toll free, at (866) 775-9429.

Please be sure to have the serial number of your compressor handy if you call them- they may ask for it. You will need a copy of your invoice for any warranty work, and you may want to call around to see which facility has the quickest turn-around time.

Malfunctioned After A Month
We purchased two units and one had a major oil leak in the pump today. It sputtered and is not operational, even though it has hardly been used. Oil completely drained out of pump from leak. Not sure where the leak is, but will reinspect the second unit for similar issue.

I've never had a compressor break so fast. Stunned, as this was supposed to be rated well. It seemed to be running well until the oil leak.
