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

Leaking Tank
I was so excited to get this compressor and continue my restoration project. Just got power to it today and pressurized the tank only to find a nail size leak underneath the ball valve. In addition to the leaking tank the ball valve handle was stripped and could pull right off (bolt and handle pulled completely off). I would love to say it was the shipping company, but the wrapping on the tank was undamaged and it could have only come that way from the factory. It's so disappointing to wait... 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."

Great compressor, quiet, and is perfect for what we needed. Thank you!

Good Value, Fast Shipping
I purchased this compressor for my home business. It came all the way to Oregon within 10 days of my order, well palleted, well wrapped. Packed with clear, easy to understand instructions.

Once installed and broken in per the instructions it has been performing perfectly. Great value in my opinion.
Pros: Quiet, Price, Exceeded Expectations, Fast

I purchased this unit to replace my 25 year old compressor that finally gave up. My air use I would say is moderate to heavy at times. This compressor has no problem keeping up and is much more quiet than my old compressor.

It has a good confident sound when running that gives me the impression that it is a good, solid unit. Had it for a few weeks, we will see if it passes the test of time.
Pros: Quiet, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Reliable
Cons: None

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

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.

Suprisingly Quiet
I've been a mechanic for 30 years and needed a good compressor for home. I don't like the usual noise and this one runs really quiet and seems to be what I was looking for.

The local store also carries all the parts and services the compressor.

Quieter Than Expected
Delivery was as expected in spite of a Montana snow storm. I was a bit disappointed to find that the "free shipping" did not mention a $50 remote area fee until late in the order placement process.

Following a 20 minute break in, it draws 11.3 Amps at 0 psi and 16.8 Amps at 130 psi shutdown, and it went from 0 psi to 130 psi in 7 min. 25 sec. at 32 F ambient.

Motor and head temperature rise during 30 minutes of operation are satisfactory.
Pros: Quiet

John,
Our system can't figure in the remote delivery fee the shipping companies add until you've entered your shipping address. We do explain it in the Free Shipping link on each page.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for any disappointment!

I do not have any negative feedback. The compressor came very well packaged, even the truck driver was impressed.

The user manual and instructions were very user friendly and simple, as well as the wiring diagram. It was ready to go out of the packaging with the exception of wiring, I just went over the compressor for belt tension and loose bolts, all was as it should be.

I called PUMA before my purchase which is in Tennessee, great customer support and answered all my questions about... more
