Great Little Home Air Compressor
It took me about 2 months to figure out which compressor I wanted to order. After a lot of research, I decided to go with Schrader Air. Air Compressors Direct had the best price.

This is a great small air compressor for home usage. I do a lot of work on cars, fabricating, blowing off the lawn tractor after usage..... The only complaint was freight. The crate was broken and small minor damage (paint was chipped in two places).

I called Air Compressor Direct and asked for touch paint, to... more

Patrick,
I'm sorry your compressor arrived with cosmetic damage. We don't keep parts like touch-up paint in stock, so we forwarded your request to the folks at Schrader on April 22nd. Their production manager got the request on May 2nd but we haven't heard anything else.

We'll be happy to follow up with Schrader today.

Great Quality
As far as the quality of the equipment goes, I'm not sure you can find one better. The pump and the motor are solid, the mounting is very stable, and the welds to my untrained eye are professionally done. The fittings are all heavy duty. If you are an experienced compressor user and just want to know about the quality, you can probably stop reading now.

I'm writing this review to share information I (not a pro) would have found useful in deciding on this particular tool and in setting it... more

Just What I Was Looking For
After returning a very loud, very slow Husky brand compressor to my local Big Box ($279) I went in search of a performance model of moderate size. Keys in my search were high quality, quiet, and quick recovery. I was willing to pay up to $1K to get such a compressor and after hours of research decided to give this one a try.

The packing on this was amazing and it arrived quickly. It was seriously crated! It hooked up quickly and when I switched it "ON" my expectations were met... more
Pros: Quiet, Fast, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Expensive

Good Service
This compressor is quiet and easy to move around. It has plenty of power to run any air tool. The electric motor quit working 2 days later and Schrader next day aired me a new replacement motor and has been working fine since.

What A Nice Little Compressor
Wow what a nice little compressor! When I saw it come off the delivery truck I knew right away Schrader is a top notch company.

This thing is shipped completely protected in a fully enclosed skid. It was full of oil and ready to go.

I plugged it in and was blown away by how quiet it is. It ran my impact, die grinder and air ratchet with out a problem.

Also it is very easy to move around.

Well Built, Nice Looking Compressor.
This unit is very well put together. It is a very clean build, also very quiet. I like the fact that it is dual voltage and that the pressure switch and the outlet are mounted on the side of the tank.

Being a self-serve Car Wash business we rely heavily on a compressor, although this one will be used at home, in an emergency it would be fairly easy to move it to a different location.

Didn't find it to be awkward at all on a cemented surface although you may have a difficult time... more

Things Could Have Transpired Better
Deciding to buy a quality air compressor can be tough. What company's use the same suppliers and have a different color and labels put on their final product. Being a Body man for 37 years I've seen a lot of this. So I make the decision to buy from this company seeing things in the descriptions and features that I'm looking for. Next I pay for it and no problems.

Now the fun begins. I use the tracking link in the email confirmation and it says I need to call RL the shipping company they... more
