Researched a lot of makes and models and came across this one. Had all the features I was looking for and best of all was on sale. Came within a week and was completely assembled except the handle and the twin air filters. The compressor was filled and some leaked out as I had to lay on its side to bring it home. I oil level sight glass made it very easy to fill back up although I had to but some compressor oil as none came with the unit but not a big deal as you should change the oil yearly anyway. The compressor runs good, quieter than my old unit and build pressure quickly and doesn't leak down setting. It's very easy to move around and just the right size. Very happy with purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comes with oil in it. Note that the user manual says it ships without oil and that it must be added before running. Mine was shipped with oil in the compressor motor. But it was loaded in my truck on its side and some oil came out the vent. I was able to fill it back up and break it in without an issue. The box is labeled this side up. So keep it upright until you can get it out of the box. This compressor is quieter than my last one. Converting to 240V was a simple process.

Is it OK for doing small paint job (a bumper or a door panel) at home garage?

Is it OK for doing small paint job (a bumper or a door panel) at home garage?
Asked by: Sansuns
Be sure to consider two areas. 1) It depends on the type of spray gun you are using. If your spray gun requires 2.0 - 5.0 SCFM @ 40 PSI, you should have no issues. However, if you are using an HVLP spray gun that can require a great deal higher SCFM air consumption, then no the 20 gallon portable would not be suitable. 2) the size of the compressor tank is a factor as well. The smaller 20 gallon would be fine for latex painting such as a fence or lawn chairs, shutters, hobby painting etc. But a larger unit such as a 60 or 80 gallon would be preferred for automotive painting to be sure you have sufficient air to continuously supply the spray gun. You don’t want to run out of air if you are still spraying. The first step is to check the air requirements of your spray gun.
