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.

Product and store fail to meet expectations
Not exactly dead on arrival...worse...UNSAFE. Turned on and it keeps pumping until safety valve releases at 170 psi. Tried to cycle several times and suspect pressure switch is defective. Called Sears customer assistance line, was transferred seven times, and told to call back next day to arrange my loading up this big thing and driving it back to return to the store. Really? This is basically a heavy appliance, they should repair on-site or pickup and replace. Very unhelpful and customer hostile attitude. Defective Sears merchandise is becoming common and customers seem to such and inconvenience to Sears.

perfect for my shop

Quiet with plenty of capacity and psi. I replaced the stock 'universal' connectors with I/M for better fits. Works great and reaches ratings easy enough.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Used 4 times and unit failed, kicks breakers, will not operate. Should have realized this product was not what I thought it to be when another customer was returning one identical to the one I was at the store to pickup

Craftsman 165 PSI 33 Gallon Air Compressor

I have always bought Craftsman, so when I needed an air compressor I went to Sears. The reason for the 4 stars is because the first one I picked up, wouldn't shut off at the 165 PSI. Obviously this is a huge safety concern. I returned the item and received a replacement. Couldn't be happier. This unit is great for all the jobs I have tackled around the house.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Not as expected

I bought this one was because it said it is quiet.However, this is not as quiet as expected but better than my Hitachi engine air compressor. Besides, it took more than 10 minutes to fill up the whole tank from empty. Overall, this is still to me an acceptable compressor.

Gets the job done

Purchased this to work with a heat press for our business. We have used it everyday for the past three weeks and it has gotten the job done. The only issue that we have is that it is louder than the one that we had before.

Disposable

I was able to get about 8 years out of my craftsmen compressor with only occasional use. Parts are available, but the motor for my old one is not. This is due to the way Sears changes vendors for it products. No alternate motor is provided. I would spend the money for the more expensive 2 stage that will allows oil lubrication. Otherwise your expensive little helper is disposable.

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.

aircompressor

owning many air compressors over 30 years, I have to say this air compressor at 165 psi is the most powerful I've ever used even those I used at work don't compare to the output that this craftsman can produce. I was using my 1/2 inch drive impact gun and it broke lose a lug nut on a trailer that I've been trying to get loose for two years with less quality air compressors. This thing is a monster. Can't wait to do some spray painting with it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
