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."

Nice Unit
I'm going from a 33 gallon oil-less Craftsmen. This unit is much quieter and doesn't run nearly as much. I haven't put it thru it's real test yet as I will be using it to paint my classic Cadillac. But I think it will handle it just fine.

My only gripes are cosmetic so far. The unit came scratched near the top of the tank and on the mounting platform for the motor, it looks as though whomever installed the motor hit the tank and platform as they were lifting the motor into place. I would... more

Mark,
I'm sorry your unit arrived with scratches. We don't keep any touch-up paint on hand, but you could give the folks at Puma a call at (901) 744-7979 to see if they could send you some.

Please be sure to have the serial number of your unit handy when you call them; they may need it for reference.

We appreciate your business and apologize for any inconvenience!

Great For Home Shop
Great for home shop. Quiet, compact and easy to install.

Only one wish is that they would add a power cord to an option list. Too much fun to play with.

Damaged In Delivery
I received my Puma 6060v via freight last week as planned. It arrived on a pallet with some plastic wrapping around the power end. As I removed the plastic I noticed the belt guard badly damaged from what appeared to be something falling on or being dropped on the unit. In addition, some hydraulic oil was leaking from the fill cap.

I removed the guard and filled with oil and it now is working just fine. I called ACD to get a replacement guard but, I have not heard back yet. Good product... more

Sean,
Our records show that we are waiting for you to send us pictures of the damage. Please send them to 'service@aircompressorsdirect.com' as soon as possible; the window to file a concealed damage claim is very small!

We appreciate your business and apologize for any inconvenience- we will work with the folks at Puma and our freight carriers to improve service in your area.

Works As Advertised
It took ten days for Puma to produce the compressor and another five days in transit. The compressor arrived in good condition and I can't say enough good about R&L carrier who handled the shipment.

I hard-wired it into a 40 amp, 220V CB and bolted it to a concrete slab in my shop with homemade 5/8 inch HDPE vibration isolators sandwiched between 1/4 inch aluminum plates. My shop has 1/2 inch steel pipe running throughout with a 1/2 inch filter and water separator within 18 inches of... more

Seems Comparable
This compressor seems to be comparable to other 60 gallon ones, however I found a Husky at a big box store for less, that even with tax made this one higher overall.

You need to do something about the shipping pallet. It was broken (due to mishandling I guess). It was not made so that the fork jack the trucker used would fit it, the slots were too narrow.

I could have saved money and also bought an AMERICAN MADE product had I looked around before hand...
Steve, the Air Compressor Expert
Product Expert
Sam,
We appreciate your business, and believe you will find that the quality and performance of the Puma will be worth the extra expense in years to come. We will let the folks at Puma know that their pallets may need work.

For a unit to be labeled "Made In USA" more than 85% of it's parts must be manufactured here, and the unit must be assembled here. Compressors in the price category you've chosen may be assembled in USA, but are usually made of globally sourced components.

If you wish to pay the extra cash for a Made In USA compressor we are happy to help- just enter Made In USA in the Search box on our website, and scroll down to the size you are looking for.

Good First Impressions
The compressor arrived in great shape and was packaged very well. I've only had it in service for three weeks, but first impressions are very good.

It runs smooth and it doesn't have that high end compressor rattle like most units as it nears the top of the tank charge. This machine has more of a consistent "whir" which, as compressors go, is pleasant compared to most.

The air volume seems to be good for a single user shop environment. If you plan to have multiple users... more

Best Feature Of All
I shopped around for the best price package and AirCompressorsDirect was the winner.

This compressor has an after-cooler off the head unit and that is a very good detail for better usage.
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Features
Cons: Cheap Control Switch With A Plastic Air Line To It

Great Compressor
Got this to replace a Kobalt. Very impressed so far. It is much quieter and will run less because of its large tank. Glad I got it.
