Q: What is the duty cycle for the pk6060v model?
by Tim from California on June 02, 2016

A: Puma, like most manufacturers, does not state the duty cycle of their compressors, but a 50% duty cycle is common for most consumer grade compressors.
We recommend sizing the compressor 1.25-1.5 times the CFM of your tool for continuous operation. If the compressor does not produce enough air volume, CFM, then the pressure will drop.
Reciprocating (Piston) compressors are not designed for continuous or 100% duty cycle. The compressor will cycle off & on if it is sized correctly.

by Steve, Product Expert
Q: Hi steve can I use sch 40 pvc pipe to feed air from the compressor to the wall outlets or do I need to use copper or galv pipe?
by Frank Kirk from Washington on April 18, 2014

A: PVC pipe is not recommended because serious injury can occur should the PVC pipe fail when under pressure. We recommend copper, galvanized steel pipe or the RapidAir system. Here's the link:

Can't Beat It For The Money!
I had a Puma 60 gallon compressor 25 years ago. I bought this one and was amazed how little it had changed over the years. It was a good compressor back then and still is. Same 2 cyclinder V pump that I had back then...it looks so similar to what I had before, I can't see much difference.

I keep seeing people saying this compressor is quiet, no compressor this size is quiet. You can say that given it size, it is reasonably quiet but you would be disappointed if you were expecting it to... more

Looks Good
It arrived undamaged. I had to move it around with an engine hoist because it weighs a lot. I set it on vibration pads and hooked it up to 45 feet of copper line to help condense the water.

I only ran it enough to break it in, a little longer than recommended. Not ready to use it yet. Even with cooling fins on the line from the cylinders to the tank and a 16 inch box fan blowing on the cylinders, the tank and air got hot. Will be adding an additional permanent fan to the cylinders... more

"Could have gotten a comparable Husky from the big Box stores for about less, but they're made in China, not the US, and then I'd have to rent a truck to get it home. Also wants a V configuration. AC Direct met my needs with the compressor and shipping. Would recommend."

Very Pleased!
Coming form a 2HP 20-gallon compressor that lasted 30 years and 4 months the Puma should have noticeable more capacity, which it does. I placed it in a storage shed about 10' from my garage and when it is running you can barely hear it! I coupled the compressor with a Rapidair piping kit and I'm very pleased with all of it.

I mounted it on rubber isolators which really helped in noise reduction. It's so nice to leave the system at a certain pressure and come back a day or two later to see... more

Great Compressor
I picked this unit from www.aircompressorsdirect.com based on components used, specifications, and customer reviews. I knew what was needed in pressure, volume, and style of pump. That narrowed the field to a few units in my price range. The unit arrived ontime, and nicely palletized.

On power up , I noticed the motor making a little noise. I loosened up the belt just a little, thinking the motor was under a little too much stress. Problem solved.

I also noticed the oil sight glass was... more

Awesome Air Compressor/horrible Shipping
I ordered my PUMA on the 1st of May. At that time they had offered a free lift gate service. I received an email stating that I would get another email once my air compressor had shipped. I waited 10 business days and no word on the status of my order. I called air compressors direct and they promptly responded and said I will have an answer within an hour. A short while later, well within the hour, I received an email stating that it had shipped along with a tracking number and a phone... more

"I was impressed both by the buying process and the product. Compressor shipped in just a few days and the freight company contacted me about a week after I ordered it to arrange delivery. Compressor arrived undamaged, setup was straightforward. It's surprisingly quiet, fills the tank quickly, and the quality is evident."

Great Air Compressor For The Money!
I did lots of research before I made this purchase. I look for quality that is my main concern, then price. For the money you can't beat this unit. I almost bought a Kobalt from Lowe's, but I am glad I spent a few more bucks and got the Puma. I like that you can replace parts on this if they go bad.

Also it's made in America. Lots of other brands say made in America but do more research and most are assembled here not built in the USA. It came with a decent sized paint defect, about a half... more

So Far, So Good!
After receiving it was well protected in shipment, no damage at all!

Wiring was easy. The motor made a banging sound called Puma Corp and the shipped me a new one in 4 days!

Other then that haven't used it long enough to know really!
Pros: Quiet

Nice Quality
I received the compressor in good shape except for the captive hardware located on the belt guard that are located two at each end that hold the bottom portion of the belt guard. It has four bolt on it two at each end l found that one was cross threaded and the bolt and the captive nut cannot be removed since have most of threads gone.

I spoke with one of your reps and I received new bolts which do no good since the captive hardware on the belt guard has no usable threads. If possible would... more

Good Compressor But Needs Repairs
Received the compressor in good shape and installed it without any problems.

After having it for about two months, the pulley came loose and burnt the belt and gouged the motor shaft. I contacted Puma and they sent out a brand new motor and pulley, but no belt.

The motor was crammed into a box with styrofoam broken up and crammed in beside the motor. There are little bits of styrofoam all over and inside the motor. I blew them out with compressed air and all appears to be OK.
