Great Little Compressor, Very Compact!
Great little compressor. I keep it in the back of my pickup since I am always in need of air on the farm. It is small and compact and doesn't take up much room. Only thing I don't like is I can't get it to start if the air pressure is in tank, let pressure out and starts right up!!!
Pros: Easy To Store, Durable, Easy To Use, Light Weight
Cons: Hard to start with Pressure in tank

Nice Little Compressor
Our company used the larger, wheel barrow style Rolair gas compressor and we were very happy with the quality but it took 2 employees to load onto a truck.

These compressors can be loaded or unloaded by 1 person and still have plenty of capacity to run two air nailers.

Outstanding
I am a roofing contractor who does jobs were no power is available so this little compressor has been a lifesaver.

I have used it on three jobs now. It is easy to start and runs quiet. I would recommend this to any small roofing contractor who needs power anywhere.

Thanks for the great service- thank you very much Air Compressors Direct stores. Great service and friendly service. I will be doing business with you again.

Need Quality Control
Can't hardly get to run. If it calls for air, It will die instead of idling up. Really surprised me because it is a Rolair brand and I thought that I was buying one of the best.
Pros: Features, Easy To Store
Cons: Won't run out of box

Will Not Start
Will not start. Oil level is good. Relief valve on. I have to drain all air in tank to start it.
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Store
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Use, Unreliable, Expensive

Jasen,
I'm sorry you're having trouble starting your compressor. Our rep at Rolair said it sounds like you are flipping the toggle on the pilot valve "up". With the toggle up, it tells the engine to go to idle mode, unless there is not air in the tank. Which makes sense why you could start the unit with no air in the tank. He says you should leave the toggle down, there's no reason to flip that up.

He also suggests that you should start the compressor with an empty tank. One, it will drain the moisture out and two, it is easier on the engine and pump until they both get warmed up.

If these tips don't help, please give the folks at Rolair a call at 920-349-3281- they will help you troubleshoot, and can refer you to Warranty Service if needed. Please also have the serial number of your compressor handy when you call them.

This unit is covered by a 1 year Factory Warranty for defects in materials and workmanship. We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience.
