Air Compressors

If you spend time on construction projects or car repairs, finding a quality air compressor may be well worth your time and money. Air compressors allow you to use a variety of tools designed to drive nails, loosen bolts or apply even coats of paint in a faster, more efficient way than their electric counterparts. If you've ever had to pause an auto repair project because you couldn't loosen a fastener or spent hours driving nails because you didn't have a nail gun, then do yourself a favor and pick up an air compressor and some pneumatic tools from our tool department. We carry a wide array of air compressors, from compact models perfect for occasional home projects to industrial strength air compressors that will handle hours of heavy work.
The way air compressors work is pretty simple: The air compressor draws air into its tank, compressing it; then the air compressor sends the compressed air through a hose to power the tool. Air compressors give air tools several advantages over other tools. The compressed air gives the air tools more torque and power than other power tools, and they are usually more durable than electric power tools because they have fewer moving parts. They are also incredibly easy to use; just plug in your air tool's hose to your air compressor and off you go.
Air compressors power the individual air tools, so matching the PSI (pressure per square inch) rating on your air compressor with that of your air tools is pretty important. This allows air tools to perform at maximum efficiency.
We carry many types of air tools to go along with your air compressor, like air hammers and impact wrenches. Pneumatic tools can make auto repairs go much more quickly and smoothly than they otherwise would, so if you love to work on cars, make sure you have a good-quality, discount air compressor from Overstock.com.
For air compressors and other tools, including air tools, take a look at the home store where you'll find all of the tools you'll want and need for your air compressors. You'll find air compressors and tools you like at prices you'll love here on Overstock.com.

    the handle is useless because if you use it to move the compressor it tips backward very easy

  • Great compressor for the price.

    Perfect compressor for my needs. Not to big, but puts out the air to do the job.

  • So Far Seems to be a Fine Product

    I was looking for an Air Compressor that was powerful enough for all of my home & auto's needs, but not too large. The WEN 2279 seems to be a fine product. The first one I received was defective, it filled halfway with air and would not restart as air was used. I received a prompt replacement. This model is large enough that it could be shipped by freight and not FedEx or UPS, since one man cannot pickup this carton alone. My replacement was slightly damaged, with the handle being bent inward so that the air filter could not be installed. I bent/formed the handle back, installed the oil & air filter, and this unit ran great, air was promptly replenished, and it packs great power to fill your auto tires with ease. This fall I will see if it can blow out my lawn sprinklers, another benefit of a large unit. Only time will tell how durable this unit is, but the initial feeling is this is a fine product.

    Like I mentioned in the build quality, my only complaint with this compressor is the cheap plastic air exit valve. It leaked!!! there was no way to tighten it otherwise the plastic valve fitting would snap or break. So i replaced the valve with a metal one I had lying around. This is a great compressor for the price. It seems to be built well, i've been using it daily for a month now without any problems or issue. I would have been more than willing to pay an extra $5 in the price had they manufacturer used all metal valves instead of that cheap plastic crap. I have to wonder how many get sent back due to this little part that is totally fixable! I'd have given this a perfect 5 star rating if it was not for that cheap plastic fitting.
