Q: What is the duty cycle for the pk6060v model?
by Tim from California on June 02, 2016

A: Puma, like most manufacturers, does not state the duty cycle of their compressors, but a 50% duty cycle is common for most consumer grade compressors.
We recommend sizing the compressor 1.25-1.5 times the CFM of your tool for continuous operation. If the compressor does not produce enough air volume, CFM, then the pressure will drop.
Reciprocating (Piston) compressors are not designed for continuous or 100% duty cycle. The compressor will cycle off & on if it is sized correctly.

by Steve, Product Expert
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:

Puma Does Not Equal Qc
Received mine last Friday and got around to finally hooking it all up. Turned it on yesterday to do the 20 minute break-in and shortly after noticed oil leaking out of front pump cover. Good reason. There is suppose to be 4 bolts holding front cover plate on. Mine only has 3 and where the 4th should be was never opened up. That is where it is leaking from.

Called Air Compressors Direct, they said they would redirect me to PUMA, Got disconnected. Found number for Puma and gave model number... more

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

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

Quiet Compressor
I recently purchased the 3 HP Puma 60 gallon compressor (August 2016). The trucking company called ahead on the delivery day and unloaded the unit at the street on time. The driver was kind enough to pull it up the driveway and into my garage.

I unwrapped most of the unit to inspect the motor, and other key components. Everything was fine. The unit was bolted to a small pallet and then to a regular size pallet. The compressor was braced from top to bottom with wood beams nailed to the... more

Great Compressor
I picked this unit from www.aircompressorsdirect.com based on components used, specifications, and customer reviews. I knew what was needed in pressure, volume, and style of pump. That narrowed the field to a few units in my price range. The unit arrived ontime, and nicely palletized.

On power up , I noticed the motor making a little noise. I loosened up the belt just a little, thinking the motor was under a little too much stress. Problem solved.

I also noticed the oil sight glass was... 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

Looks Great, Just Broke In, Have A Problem...
Ordered May 13th and think I received it less than 10 days after. Delivery was fantastic right into my garage. It was secured to a very beefy pallet and wrapped nicely in plastic. Looked to be in near perfect shape upon initial inspection.

It took me over a month to get someone out to wire it and I just fired it up for break in yesterday (June 30th). There seemed to be a rattle and I was pretty sure it was coming from the belt guard. Today I tried removing the belt guard and two of... more

Don't Buy! Mine Lasted Exactly 1 Year Under Light Use
It's just junk. Sad to say but if a $700 compressor lasts 1year with approx 2 hrs use a week... JUNK.
Pros: Quiet
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Durability, JUNK

Factory Warranties cover defects in materials and workmanship, which usually show up right away. I'm sorry that Puma wouldn't extend their warranty to cover your situation.

The Best Value For The Money
My only minor disappointment is with the drain valve. It is small and not conveniently located. Is it dead center under the tank. When operating instructions mention draining daily, it should be located for easier access.

I find this compressor to be a very good deal, especially when you factor in that the lift gate service is free. Other compressors required a $50-$75 lift gate charge. We all know that lift gate service is a freight company scam. Based on cost and usage of a lift gate over... more

Guy,
We sell Drain Extensions & Automatic Tank Drains that should make maintenance a little easier for you.

Shipping companies that don't use lift gate trucks are cheaper than shipping companies that do, so it's not a scam, just business. We give you the option of selecting a lift gate delivery to save you money.

Made In USA is a legal term that the FTC can fine a company for misusing. To use the Made In USA label not only does the product need to be assembled in the US, it has to be made of materials that were made in the US. Since most folks shop by price, most companies use globally sourced materials to compete. Quincy and Jenny still have some units that may qualify as Made In USA, but there is nothing in Puma's price range. Puma's compressors are imported.

Had To Wait For Paint
I waited 16 business days and then called. The web site says 7-14 days, I was told the delay was because of the lack of the blue paint it could be shipped. I told them the flat black paint was acceptable. Who cares about the color since it won't affect the function of the unit?

I might have had something to complain about though if painted pink! Ha, Ha!

It is far quieter than the oil less it is replacing.
Pros: Quiet, Price, High Quality, Features
