The hose quick connects are a little tighter/snug then I was used to, but assumed that was an improvement in a better airtight seal. A bit on the heavy side with regard to portability, but far better than my previous pancake compressor, but manageable (mine will stay stationary 95% of the time)....hopefully this one will last as long (20 years). The on-line purchase from Home Depot was quick without issues...including the delivery.

Does anyone have issue with air compressor's paint? My bought my couple years ago and used twice. I took care of it very well. However, the side of the tank suddenly has a bunch of paint flake off . Where can I buy touch up paint? thank everyone!
Asked by: Long
I have trouble with the paint on my compressor also. A large spot of paint was chipped off on the end of the lower tank when I took it out of the box. I used delicate surface masking tape to mask off areas i didnt want to paint and the tape pulled off the paint that i thought was sound. Very poor adhesion of the factory paint.

How much oil does this take before you can use it.

Asked by: Tim
The compressor came with the required amount of oil. I don't recall the exact volume, shy of a quarter....so maybe 0.75 quarts.

What is the advantage of having this MAC2400 compressor, against the MAC5200 compressor? Both weigh about the same, and have about the same output, with negligible differences.

Is it normal for there to be a slow leak of tank pressure in these? After break in, I let mine run until it cut off at about 130 PSI and left it, and about 24hr later, it was down to about 40-50 PSI in the tank (Regulator set to 40 PSI, nothing connected). At first (at ~120 PSI) it seemed like the leak was fast enough that it would cycle every 30 minutes or so.
Asked by: SpeedDaemon
shouldn't be a leak. water and soap fittings to find leak. I've had this unit for years and love it. just needs wheels or a cart because of weight. very dependable..
