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

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

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.

Puma Air Compersson
Had to replace a compressor my son took when he moved out. This Puma had good reviews and seemed to fit my needs. So far it has worked as advertised. Showed up sooner than they said it would, and the company did not bill my card until after delivery, I would deal with them again.

Great Compressor So Far
I was on a budget and had a 4hp 11 gallon compressor that would just get worked into the ground. With this compressor it was beyond my expectations. A lot more quiet than my old oilless compressor and doesn't come on nearly as much. I considered this compressor cause of all the reviews. All the bad reviews (which were few) were all that had nothing to do with the actual compressor but with shipping damage. Just shows some people have to complain about something and can never be pleased. I... more

My Christmas Gift
Old Compressor was the same (single stage, 60 gallon, cast iron) but 40 years old and very noisy, very slow to recover.
Went with this compressor due to the open cast iron pump, inter cooler, after cooler, valves already in place! This compressor is built to the same standards as its much larger counterparts! And quiet compared to most! Don't expect your compressor to not make noise, (not possible). But this one is quieter than most. This compressor is plug and play, I do my own electric,... more

Nice!!!
I've used it about a month now and really like it. It came very well protected from the shipper. Is very quiet compared to the craftsman I've been using. Very happy with this compressor.

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
