The compressure seems to wok fine filling tires. I have not had a chance to try my air hammers as of yet. When I purchased this item, one of the biggist factors was to use this compressor with my framing nailer. I believe it will be just fine. The reason I give this item only 3 stars is that the gauges are hard to read without tipping the compressor to the side. This could be fixed. The company could establish them facing up.

The purchasing and shipping went very smoothly. This is the first air compressor I have used. I have read completely the operators manual that came the product. Unfortunately the manual is insufficiently detailed. For example, only a couple of the components were pictured and you have to guess when matching up the actual components to the references the manual makes. I have not been able to determine if the regulator on my compressor is faulty or if I am doing something wrong. But the bottom line is that it takes a few minutes for the psi to reach 100 and as soon as I discharge, even if only for second, the psi drops and it takes another minute or so to climb back up to 100 psi. That's a problem when you need continuous psi for say, spray painting operations, or spray washing applications... Been trying to get advise from persons experienced with air compressors but so far no resolution. :)

my husband bought this compressor to have for around the house/ yard work. he also went and spent another $14 at some low level department store for another set that contained ball needles, and tire inflation tips among other things, and in my opinion, this works good for my car tires. Mediocre on my truck tires and good on the motorcycle.This compressor works very well for its size, maintains pressure well, so long as you have it on, refills quickly if you do deplete air, is easily moveable, light enough, fits every tip to any other random brand we've tried to use on it, and is very efficient. perfect as a "low cost", but "worth the money" option for addition to a personal/household tool inventory. Good for light to medium-duty jobs. not good for commercial use or constant use, like in a shop, all day. I am impressed with this item, and considering we bought it nearly 4 years ago and it's still just as sturdy and useful as new makes the cost, durability, workability, and efficiency of this product that much more extraordinary

This compressor not only is affordable on a low budget but also reliable, not to heavy, comes with many accessories and works well with my tools. If you plan on buying a compressor for the first time then get this one. If i could have one complaint it'd be the noise level. But seeing how much more i have to pay for a quiet compressor i'd rather put up with the noise.

This compressor was great when received but was used only occasionally and died within a year. The motor armature shorted out. It came with many accesories but what good are they when the motor doesn't spin....

A good light duty model for home use. Sufficient pressure and cfms for most uses. Handy small size for even apartment or even RV dwellers. Is noisy thought and slow (all single stage compressors are slow). Probably could use a quick disconnect attachment on the outlet. Overall it gets the job done,

I purchased this item to have around to fill up tires etc. Works like a charm. The user manual doesn't explain things very well.

This machine is a great mini machine for a shed or anywhere you need to carry a portable tank in the past.

Works well for pumping up tires. Light and portable.
When deciding which air compressor to buy, think about the things you plan to use it for. Air compressors have a variety of uses in domestic, commercial and industrial situations. They are used to fill gas cylinders, fill vehicle tires and supply pressured air to pneumatic (air-powered) tools, among other things. Knowing the right things to look for in a compressor will help you choose the best one for your money.
You can beat the heat without sending your air conditioning costs through the roof. Just use a portable air conditioner to keep areas of your home cool. Air conditioners work by using either evaporative cooling or refrigerant compressors to cool air. Instead of cooling the entire house, a small, portable air conditioner cools the room you're in at the moment. Even if you have a central air conditioner for your home, you can still benefit from using portable air conditioners.
Air tools are powerful and rugged. They are perfect for the professional builder and craftsman as well as the weekend warrior. This air tools buying guide from Overstock.com will help you decide which air tools would be right for your home improvement projects.
Serious construction and home improvement projects require serious tools. When you're embarking on a large project, such as a home addition or major painting, regular power tools may not be up to the challenge. That's where using air tools can make things easier. Air tools, or pneumatic tools, don't need to be recharged, and they are more durable than power tools that use electric motors and batteries. Here are answers to some frequently asked questions that will help you decide if using air tools is the right move for your next home improvement project.
Pneumatic tools are the ideal tools for big remodeling and painting jobs, and they really speed up large home improvement projects. All air tools can be safe when used properly, and anyone who uses air tools needs some essential safety knowledge. Here are some basic air-tool safety tips to avoid some common risks.
Using an air nailer for home improvement projects can speed up jobs requiring thousands of nails a day. A quality power air nailer, or nail gun, can accurately and consistently drive nails without leaving hammer tracks for projects ranging from roofing to installing wood trim and molding. Put the hammer away and choose an air gun, such as a power air nailer, to save energy and time and achieve even nail-driving depth. Buying an air nailer comes with many decisions, including which type of air tool will work best for a given project, the capacity needed and whether or not the nail gun needs to be cordless to access the project site.
When the job calls for nailing large pieces of material together quickly and accurately, a framing nailer is the right tool. A framing nailer is a specific model of air gun. All power nailers are designed to make the carpenter's job easier by removing the need to hammer, but framing nailers are intended for quick, high-powered projects, unlike smaller models of power nailers that are used for only for precision work. Whether you're building a house or a doghouse, a framing nailer is an air gun that can take hours off your project time and save your muscles some undue soreness.
The right tools help nearly any job get done faster. A good toolset of basic hand tools will get you pretty far. It also doesn't hurt to have some power tools to save time and effort on repetitive tasks. As you work on different home improvement projects, your tool collection will continue to grow. This tools buying guide from Overstock.com will help you understand what tools you may want to look for and how to find quality tools that will last.
Keeping cool is an essential part of life during the hot summer months, and the right air conditioner will not only make you more comfortable; it can save you money. Knowing how air conditioners work can help you choose the right unit for your abode; size, circulation, power and filters all factor into your decision.
Whether you are adding new shingles to a roof or putting together wood furniture, you may find that a simple hammer takes far longer than necessary to finish a job. If you want to insert a large number of nails quickly, you can instead use an air gun that inserts nails, which is also known as a power nailer. Nail guns come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and each is intended for a different type of project. Before selecting a new nail gun, carefully consider the features and compare them to the type of job you are performing with the tools in your workshop.
Stepping up from hand tools to power tools is a move that can save you a lot of time and energy. Power tools can also save you money by letting you do a home-improvement project yourself instead of hiring a contractor to do it. And it only takes a few tools to go from struggling with a job to getting professional-quality results.
For the right person, few gifts are as useful and exciting as tools.

Air mattresses have changed a lot. The term "air bed" is commonly used now, maybe because air mattresses really have changed into something that rivals your very own bed in terms of comfort.

Choose an air gun paint sprayer based on both your current and projected needs.
