Relatively quiet
In contrast to the last Craftsman compresser I bough (which is still working well after 10 years) this one is much quieter. Two quick connects for output allow you to set up one side to go through a filter or dehumidier while leaving the other side for inflating. Like most compressors this size, the drain on the bottom is difficult to reach. Spend $20 and replace this with an elbow, a 6" nipple and a ball valve and you will be able to easily bleed the water out of the bottom of the tank.

Died the first day I used it
We bought this compressor at the end of October. I unpacked it and plugged it in and it worked, but I didn't really use it until last month (March). After only an hour or two, it started throwing the breaker and shooting sparks out of the motor. I tired it on a dedicated 20 amp outlet and same thing happened - definitely a problem with the compressor. I loaded it up and took it back to Sears for a replacement. I understand things like this can happen and I didn't expect any problems. To my dismay, since it had been more than 60 days since I bought it, they wouldn't swap - I had to send it back to be repaired. That's when the nightmare began. Long story short, more than 4 weeks later they don't even have the parts yet. I've repeatedly requested them to just replace it, but they don't have the authority to make that decision. When (if) they finally fix or replace it, I'll grudgingly try it again. What choice do I have? I sure wish I had bought a different compressor from a different company. Even HF will quickly replace defective products. Good customer service can offset marginal products.

Absolutely love it!!

I run a very small automotive repair and custom side business out of my home garage and needed a small, quite, and hassle free compressor I'm the shop. I purchased this compressor roughly a year and a half ago and could be happier. it's very quite and doesn't wake up the neighbors in the middle of the night on those late night projects, easy to run, and works every time no questions. the only complaint I bounce come up with is the drain valve is garbage and In bad location. I replaced it three times thru my warranty before getting smart and just upgrading. just wish I would have got a bigger tank for use with the da Sanders, but couldn't be happier with my 33 gallon! would highly recommend to any home owner or diy automotive enthusiast!!n

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great for home shop

Needed a compressor to do general auto work on my trucks. Wanted something relatively powerful to let me do repairs, which included an upcoming replacement of shocks, springs, entire hubs etc. Looked a the specs and found that this would drive most of the 1/4" tools that I was using. Comes almost ready to use. You need a good hose, I bought the 3/8' that was called for the impact wrench and ratchets. 50ft hose, fittings etc. The compressor doesn't come with any of this. Plugged it in, let the tank fill, shut it off and left it overnight to see if it has any leaks. No leaks, Used it to rotate my tires with the composite impact wrench from craftsman and was able to take 2 truck tires off without the compressor even going on. The compressor is relatively quiet, and fills quickly. Its not too large and fits nicely in my corner of the garage. So far so good. Finally no more taking tires off with a hand wrench..

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Weld Seams Leak out of Box, HORRIBLE Manufacturing Quality. DON'T BUY!

Bought my first 33 gallon Craftsman compressor 2 weeks ago. Out of the box the bottom weld seam leaked air around where the wheel mount meets the tank. I gave Craftsman's china manufacturer the benefit of the doubt as the wheel was misaligned and I figured perhaps it fell off the back of a truck - even though the box wasn't visibly damaged. I returned the compressor and got a new one. Took it home and second one leaked out of the box - this time from the top weld seam on the tank. Unbelievable. What are the odds of getting 2 out of the box that leak at the welded seams? NO WAY ARE THEY TESTING THESE AT THE FACTORY! The tanks should be pressurized and submerged (leak tested) before the compressors are ever even mated to them. These are horribly manufactured and obvious lack any sort of actual testing or quality control at the factory. Buying one of these is taking a gamble on whether you just wasted close to $400. Don't waste your time or money!

Powerful and useful with some modifications

Run a drain extension out from the bottom as others have advised on here. Also, mine had some minor slow leaks from the factory. I took apart the regulator and fittings, wrapped in Teflon tape, and put back together. This compressor runs my impact wrench great without kicking on very often. Breaks tough lug nuts loose. I haven't tried it with other tools, but I am sure it will do fine. Pumps up a repaired tire very fast. Does take a little while to get to 165psi, but worth it when it does. got on sale for around $300. It is a great deal at this price. Far outperforms the cheap made compressor I got from HB and then returned.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Best Current Craftsman Air Compressor

Purchased this after owning a 2 gallon Craftsman 1.5 Compressor for 7 years. Best bang for your buck especially when purchased on Sale at around $319. Used surprise points and coupons and got even cheaper. Very quiet compared to my old oiled compressor and other oilless compressors out there. 165 psi is really a plus in addition to the large capacity 33 gallon tank, you can run your air tools @ 90 psi longer. Lower models to include the 26 gallon does not have enough SCFM for most air tools to include the basic impact wrenches. Skip the lower models and purchase this one. You will not regret it!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

You get what you pay for

I've owned this about two years, used about once per month. Its so loud I have to wear ear protection in the shop, or fill it, then unplug it and use the stored air...not good if I'm doing something that requires a lot of air. Anyway, yesterday the motor seized while filling the tank. Piston is not seized, its the motor. I managed to get motor to rotate by prying on the eccentric, but when I started it it immediately started shredding itself inside and froze after about two seconds....aluminum shavings flying everywhere. A replacement motor runs $260, nearly what I paid for the whole thing new. Never again, Sears, never again. Been burned too many times on Craftsman garbage.
