Good evening LJ’s,
1. It came with an air hose
2. Dual couplings
3. Goodies, Goodies,Goodies
A few more of the great features are that it is oil free No oil to maintain, the controls are up front and easy to use, moisture drain is easy to use and operate, and the air ratchet, impact gun, and hose seal the deal. Out of the box the finish is nice and the overall quality is great but where this excels at is with my HVLP gun Although it is labeled for occasional use with spray guns I don’t see Woodworkers spraying 8 hours a day 7 days a week so this will be fine for me now anyway :) The instruction manual was easy to read and understand And the fact that only the air fittings had to be put on the hose made it all the sweeter. My only complaint is they really need to give enough couplings for the tools they give you I just happened to have an extra available and need one for the impact gun. I would recommend this for any beginning woodworker or someone looking for an affordable upgrade

Yesterday afternoon my little harbor freight 5 gallon hotdog compressor died with a bang (literally It smoked the plug and tripped a breaker) After finding the problem to be a locked rotor and non fixable I was screwed for finishing a cabinet I was working on. After telling my friend Ann about the situation she assisted me in getting it. (In the middle of a job no money and rent due) I picked this beauty up at Home Depot. What make this get five stars is

Love it. I am in need of an upgrade to. Sounds nice. How loud is it?And how long does it run to recharge its pressure?

Wish I had bought this size Air compressor.Bigger is better when it comes to air compressors. I bought a pancake size unit with a nailer witch wasn’t a bad deal but when trying to spray finishes SCFM are the key.smaller compressors can’t keep up the volume at the rate required.Good buy! Add an air dryer when possible.

I’ve got the HF 8 gallon hotdog type compressor. It works. That is really all I can say for it…. I really want a compressor with bigger capacity…
