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

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

Not Too Heavy Or Hard To Move
After watching YouTube videos I was worried about how would I get this off the delivery truck ( 18 wheeler ) and move it into place. Well I worried for nothing-, the driver and I ( 67 years old ) just lifted it and sat it down on the ground ( no lift gate ) and then just I moved it on a regular hand truck to where I wanted to set it up.

I left it on the small pallet it came bolted to, same as the last 60 gallon vertical compressor I had. My last compressor was a Charge Air Pro made by... more

Great Air Compressor
The air compressor arrived quickly and in perfect condition. It was an easy install by exchanging the power cord and the air hose from the previous compressor.

It builds air faster than my old one and is a lot quieter. Only had it a couple of weeks but it works great and looks very nice and is well designed and built. It handles everything I need an air compressor for.

Great product and buying experience.
Pros: Quiet, High Quality, Features, Durable

Good Choice... Glad I Shopped Around
I looked at a lot of compressors to replace my 30 year old unit. This Puma had good reviews and since I'm no longer in the professional business I thought this would be good for my auto hobby.

It arrived very well packaged and the driver unloaded it and brought it right into my garage. The setup was easy and the only thing I changed was the addition of an extended drain tube that I can operate with my foot and not even bend down.

I've had it for about a month and so far everything is... more

Used To Love It, Now It's Junk. Absolutely Disappointed.
I bought this compressor three years ago. So far I loved it. I got it on sale at a chain store in Wichita KS. 2 days ago, the shaft coming out of the electric motor snapped off flush with the motor housing. It looks as if its been broke for quite some time. The shaft has rust where it broke off. Looks like there was only about 1/8" of good metal holding it together till it broke.

This is a 5/8" steel shaft were talking here. I think its possibly came from the electric motor... more

Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Durability, JUNK!!!!!!!!!!!

Rob,
You may get better results if you call the folks at Puma directly at (901) 744-7979. Please have the serial number of your unit handy when you call in case they ask for it.

With air compressors, you get what you pay for. If you're looking for a throw-away unit, then the discount store is the place to go. If you're looking for an air compressor that will last a long time you will pay more for it, but you will only buy it once.

If you want to stay with 3-HP units, you can get an Ingersoll Rand or Industrial Air unit for the same price as your Puma.

For just a little bit more you can get a 3.5 HP Quincy Belt Drive that, with the proper maintenance, your grandkids will be using. It's the best bang for your buck.
