Great Compressor But It's Missing Something!
Air Compressors Direct delivered the unit when I asked for it and I have no complaints with them.

It's a very powerful unit and suits my needs, very high output. However on the website it states the unit is electric start and the battery is not included. They don't tell you that the compressor does not come with the battery cables and a place to actually put a battery. There is no other option on this compressor other than the electric start because it doesn't have a pull cord.

Steve,
Our customers tell us that they wire the starter for the compressor into their truck battery. Each installation will be different depending on the truck involved; the wiring needed is available at any auto parts store.

Would Be Nice If It Included A Battery
Haven't used it yet, so can't give a full review. Was expecting to be able to put gas in it and fire it up. But no battery, no brackets or place to put one. No cables. So one more project I don't need.

The Generac generator I ordered came with a battery.

Ryan,
I'm sorry you were disappointed by not getting a battery with this compressor. The last line on the Features page for this unit says "Battery not included, must be purchased separately".

Most of the truck-mounted air compressors we sell are set up like this because folks want to wire them into their truck's ignition system, eliminating the need for an additional battery. Cables aren't included since everyone's set-up will be different.

This helps keep the price down and lets the buyer customize their set-up to meet their particular needs.

Generators usually operate in an area without power, so a battery is needed for electric-start units. However, there are electric-start generators that ship without a battery to save weight and shipping costs; it varies from unit to unit.

We appreciate your business and apologize for any inconvenience.

Awesome Compressor
This is a great compressor so far, I use it to blow out cracks in pavement and run seal coat pumps.
Unit showed up 2 weeks late and one of the air cleaners was smashed. After sending pictures in, I didn't get a response email/phone call...

I called them and they said they would look into it and then the girl just hung up on me while I was asking her about getting a tracking number for the replacement parts. I would recommend buying this compressor from a big box store.

Nate,
I checked your file and our staff has emailed you at least 3 times and called you at least twice to make sure you got the parts you needed and got the tracking information you requested.
