"This compressor is repoted to put out 5 cfm at 90 psig. It outs out slightly less than 1.2 cfm at 60 psig. Real piece of junk.. it is also reported as made in usa, dont think so. Most of it is marked china. I do not recommend this compressor to anyone."

Lee,
We checked with Speedway and they are still posting 6 CFM at 40 PSI and 5 CFM at 90 PSI for this model. Speedway's ad sheet they sent us that we have attached to the file has an American Flag in the lower right-hand corner that says USA in big print, and what looks like “Engineered & Serviced in the…” above it - a clear violation of the Made in USA rules. I can see why this was confusing. We have removed this sheet from our site & will request a corrected sheet from Speedway. Unfortunately, we do not know of any USA made small portable or single stage air compressors. All are now made in part or entirely in China or Taiwan. We apologize for any confusion.

Bad Assembly
This compressor leaked in almost all connections when I got it. I was very disappointed.

William,
We apologize for the disappointment! Your compressor has a 1 year Factory Warranty, so if it needs repair please contact the folks at Speedway directly at 260.359.6691. Be sure to have the serial number of your compressor handy when you call.

You may also want to try using some teflon pipe tape (about $1 at any hardware or grocery store) on the connectors to prevent leaks- a few wraps and you should be good to go.
