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 Jim, 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:

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

Scott,
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.

Awesome Piece Of Equipment!!
I received my compressor and upon unpacking it I was absolutely awestruck. The quality and attention to detail on this compressor is absolutely awesome. It is actually beautiful. After I got it up and running, I was pleasantly surprised at how smoothly and quietly it runs.
It met and exceeded my expectations by a mile. The entire process of purchasing, etc. was a joy in itself. I am very pleased. I feel very
strongly that it will last a long time. Thank you for making this a pleasant... 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

Everything about this purchase was as advertised. Shipping was on-time and the product was well protected. Connection to my system was easy and electrical connection was a breeze. I did the run-in for the required 20 minutes and have had no problems whatsoever with the unit. Overall, a good product that runs everything I have in my shop.

Nice Unit
Received without a flaw. The trucking company/delivery people "Saia" were outstanding.

I had a 25 year old 5hp 60gal 240v that was worn out, spitting oil etc. So my transfer was easy. Used my air dryers, motor wiring, plug outlet etc. I was up and running in hours.

The Puma is quiet and runs well. It keeps up with air tools, grinders, cutters etc. I have a glass bead box and it does a pretty good job with it. It is being used in a residential garage to restore an old car.
