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.

Great buy

The oil less air compressor was a great value, especially for us garage dwellers. The double port is handy. I can use different air applications at the same time. It does not leak oil or air like my old one. The vertical stance is also great. Compressor has a lot smaller foot print. Less space means more toys. Made room to place my portable air tank. I am looking forward to many years of service out of it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Upgrades and improvements

This is an upgrade from a horizontal compressor that I used to own with less storage and max PSI. This is saving in some space. Have to adjust to some of the differences in the unit, but, not difficult to do with some adaptation. Quieter, also.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Jury still out but great so far!!

Just started using this hence the title. I took the advise of other reviewers and changed the drain to a ball valve and extension which was great advice. Solid performance so far with one exception, electrical smell from the motor is a little disconcerting. (hoping it just needs to break in)

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Disappointed with performance

Got this to run my air tools. Wrong! Can't push enough air to drive my tools. Even bought another smaller diameter hose. Denied again. Went back to store to ask about setting up the regulator just in case i was doing something wrong but no one in the tools department had a clue. Works other wise but not for the intended purpose.

Very Reasonable Noise Level, Great Capacity & Pressure, 2 Hose Connections

It was time to upgrade my air compressor, so my first stop was Sears. I like buying Craftsman because of the warranty and the parts availability after purchase. This one (#16572) met all my expectation, and more. It's assembled in America using global materials. One priority for me was noise level, and this unit met my expectations. Not the quietest one available on the market but very reasonable and tolerable. A good middle CFM rating, great 165 P.S.I. max pressure, and a nice big 33 gallon tank. One thing I didn't realize until I unboxed it is that it has two quick couplings so two people can have access to air at the same time. I really like this compressor so far. We'll see how it holds up for the long haul. Hopefully this is the last home compressor that I have to buy. No buyers remorse here!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Have used this with a 1/2 in impact wrench and had more than enough power to remove 4 tires for rotation before it started up. Fast fill up of tank. Lots of power.
