  4 Questions
Q: Steve, can I install a 30amp dryer type chord on the Puma 3040 and utilize a 30 amp 240 volt outlet?
by John Cryer from Texas on October 07, 2016

A: Any alteration to the wiring of the unit will void the Factory Warranty, and could present a safety issue- we don't recommend it.

You can sort Puma's Two-Stage Lineup for the voltage and phase you need.

You could also give the folks at Puma a call at (901) 744-7979 for advice on any adaptions you are planning.
by Jim, Product Expert

Q: What is the amp draw at 240 volts? Is 240 volts single phase OKAY?
by Ralph from Florida on July 04, 2016

A: Unfortunately, we do not have that specification. Please contact Puma @ (901) 744-7979 for additional info.
by Jim, Product Expert

Q: Does this compressor come ready to plug in or do you have to wire it in?
by Greg from Indiana on July 03, 2016

A: This compressor, like most stationary air compressors, does not come with a power cord. They are normally hard wired directly to the electrical panel. We do recommend adding a pressure regulator so that the pressure can be adjusted to the psi of your air tools. There is a manual drain on the bottom of the tank so that accumulated water can be emptied.
by Jim, Product Expert

Q: What is the noise level in decibles?
by Charlie from Virginia on November 14, 2015

A: I combed through the manual & spec sheet we have listed under the Specs tab, and I also checked the Puma website- they aren't listing a decibel level for this unit.

You might want to give them a call at (901) 744-7979 to see if they have that information available.

Be sure to ask how far away from the compressor the measurement was taken- usually it's about 3 feet, but there isn't a hard and fast rule. Standing farther away reduces the dBA level.

Dynamite "little" Compressor
Wanted something smaller, but with some punch. Didn't need a huge tank as I don't do a lot of stuff with air quick to fill.

At a distance of 6' this Puma is 77db. This is ten times quieter than my old cheap (oil) compressor, which measured 87db.

I had to snip off a little over 1/4" of the ON/OFF lever as it would hit on the electrical service connection: I used liquid tight PVC conduit and fittings, which are a bit bulky. Puma might look to provide a little more clearance here.

"Compressor arrived on a PARTIAL pallet, which kind of threw me off. Use of pallet forks (on tractor) required laying a chunk of plywood across the forks and then setting the compressor+"pallet" on top (made things a bit tippy)."

Our page for the Puma unit says it ships in 2 to 5 business days (Monday thru Friday, excluding holidays). You placed your order on 3/27 at 10:15pm; so today is the 5th business day. I'll be happy to check with Puma on the status of your order, and we'll email the tracking information to you as soon as we get it.

You are welcome to call or email us at 'service@aircompressorsdirect.com' at any time about your order- we appreciate your business!

Good Choice
As promised, my order shipped from the manufacturer five business days after placed and I was provided with tracking info. Arrived about one week later from Tennessee to my North Idaho driveway by lift gate. From there, I used a light hand truck to move it into place in the shop.

Compressor shipped bubble wrapped on a small wood pallet. Arrived with minor shipping damage. Delivery driver was very helpful, documenting the fact on my invoice. Emailed ACD (thanks: Suzi Quigley post sales rep.)... more

Great Compressor, But Customer Service....ehh!!
Compressor and specs are a stellar unit !! But after passing the shipping/arrival date from the said 7 to 10 business days, I called to express my concerns over NOT hearing from anyone on either the purchasing or manufacturing side. Was told the compressor was back ordered, and would not be available for another 7 to 10 days.

Arrived via Lift Gate truck and excellent service from third party handler to get it to my garage. After quick inspection of unit paperwork signed and release... more

Peter,
We apologize for Puma's delay in shipping your unit- they hadn't told us they were waiting on the next production run to be ready for shipment.

Our records show one of our folks called you yesterday so we could get the information we need to help with repair or replacement of your unit, and apparently they were hung up on. They called your number again with no answer, so they emailed you asking for the serial number of your unit.

I will send the picture you included to our Post Sales team so they can help you resolve your situation.

My Order Came On Time & Was Packaged Up Nice
Compressor came on time and was wraped up nice. No damage, i have 2 air leaks- 1 I was able to fix the other is under the on off switch which I'm not willing to try to take it apart. I did not contact Air Compressors Direct about this, I wanted to see how often it has to turn itself back on to fill up tank About 8 times a day. I wish it was factory tested for air leaks.
Pros: Quiet, Fast, Easy To Use
Cons: Bad Instructions, Wasnt factory tested for air leaks

I Love My New Purchase
Very happy with my purchase. It pumps up fast and it is very quiet compared to my old 60 gallon single stage compressor.

I would recommend this for any medium duty shop or home owner. Also the appearance is very nice...good paint job on the tank.
Pros: Quiet, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations, Light Weight

Josesph,
I'm glad you're pleased with your new compressor!

I need to add, for those reading this review, that Made in USA is a legal term meaning that the unit is assembled here in the US, and all the parts are made in the US as well. I'm sorry, but Puma compressors (and most others) don't meet this description. This compressor, and many of the other brands we carry, are assembled in the US of domestic and globally sourced components.

Quiet Performance!
Arrived when promised (thanks for tracking info).

When I first turned it on, for a moment I thought something was wrong then I realized this thing is really quiet.

Performs great! plenty air for my needs & pumps back up fairly quickly.
For this amount of money it should be this good.

I had to pay sales tax (Illinois) even though it was shipped directly from the factory which is in a different state.
Pros: Quiet, High Quality, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Expensive

Great For Small Shops
I use this in a small woodshop (24x24). It runs a 15" sander and all my nailers with ease.

It is also quiet enough that there is no need for hearing protection while it is running. In fact, it is quieter than some of my machinery.
Pros: Quiet, I'd Buy It Again, Fast, Easy To Store

Start Up Issues
The unit is performing well and runs quiet.

From the factory there was a small piece of plastic that made its way into the check valve used to depressurize the head after reaching pressure limit. The unit couldn't hold pressure until the contamination was removed.
Pros: Quiet
Cons: start up issue
