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
Pros: Quiet, Price

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."

Best Deal Out There
This is the best deal going on the internet or at a store. Product was delivered in perfect condition in a reasonable amount of time. This air compressor is much more quiet than my previous one. Set up was simple and haven't had any issues.

Quiet Compressor
Finally got air in my garage a couple of years after my 25 gal compressor died. This one seems to be a lot quieter than the old one which is a nice feature. Runs my d/a sander well and I piped it in to the garage so I have air wherever I need it. Have not used it a lot yet but so far I am happy with the purchase.

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.
Pros: Quiet, Price, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again

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.

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!

The folks at Puma list Midwest Tool & Compressor Service, Mandan 58554, 701-527-2539 as their North Dakota Service location. You can call them, or give Puma a call directly at (901) 744-7979 to see if they've added anyone else in your area.

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.

Diy'er - Up To The Task
I started a vehicle restoration and realized my existing home compressor was not up to the task. I went back and forth with 60-80 gal/3-5 hp units and settled on this PUMA which does not meet the 5 hp specs but was reported to hit the CFM I needed for blasting. After a weekend of tuning on the pressurized blaster - the paint started coming off. My only reference was a gravity feed unit with a much smaller compressor. So this was a HUGE improvement. I'm satisfied.

The unit itself arrived... more
