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 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.

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.

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.
Bought this 33 gal compressor for the home works great takes care of all the small jobs and big jobs would highly recomend .

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.
This my second Craftsman 33 Gallon compressor. My first one lasted 7 years without problem. Use my compressors at my home shop and they have fulfilled my needs to date.
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.
Fired up the first one to 165psi, next day pressure was down to 30psi. Found the check valve had leak around the threads. I could have take it apart and put some tape on it, but decided to take it back for a replacement. Second one seems like it's holding pressure. As for everything else I'm pretty happy with it; time will tell.

I just bought this about a month ago but so far it seems to work great, running quietly and filling the tank quickly. I haven't had a chance to try my air tools. I do plan to do as others have suggested and install an easier to access drain valve. I also connected a 50ft hose reel from **************.
I've had this for a couple weeks now and I must say this compressor is a work horse. It takes a little time to fill up but other than that its pretty quite and gets the job done.
