I knew it wouldn’t be any good for painting anything larger than a small panel, but a friend wants to borrow it to paint his boat. Simply log into and you can order anything you want for USA delivery, from sturdy Craftsman lawn and garden tools to dependable Die Hard car batteries Whether you’re planning on picking up your order in an American Sears location or shipping to an American address, the process is simple and hassle-free. In the meantime, I bought a pair of ear muff style ear protection that hangs above the oilless compressor if we are in the room with the compressor running.
For $300 dollars or less, you’re really not going to get an air compressor of any good quality that’s going to last more than maybe a year or two. One is the date on which you changed the oil and the other is the total hours the compressor was turned on. If the compressor had been on for more than 300 hours, it definitely requires new oil. I had a similar one for a few years and finally replaced it with the 60 gallon that I have now. These Oil-Free Air Compressors were sold under the Porter Cable brand name and were sold by various stores including Home Depot, Lowes, Menards, Ace hardware, Costco, Wal-Mart, Sams Club, Sears stores, Carter Lumber and other fine retailers throughout the country.
Personally I would find a portable unit that supplies enough CFM that will run what you want it to and your generator will run it if you have one. Many people will recommend a 60 gallon (or bigger) air compressor and while I love my 60 gallon, my old 30 gallon would still do everything that I need. So how i look at it I ended up with a $1500 compressor for just under $500 and itll never run out of air on me. Plus I have a backup pump if ever needed. I always let the air out of it and allow it to dry out, then blowing it out when I start by leaving the valve open for a bit.
My current Sears compressor is bolted to a chain supported shelf, high on a wall in my garage. Instead, go for rugged durability backed by a name synonymous with quality, such as a Craftsman air compressor. I have now converted most of my electric power tools to air and love the results. As the time passes, the oil starts getting thick and forms a black coating and gradually makes the compressor less efficient. Once you have got the delivery of the product, you will be all eager to use the compressor.
So, I have a call in to the IR recall number and waiting on someone to tell me what they will do…either another unit or some sort of monetary number (which I can’t imagine being too much). I think there is a couple of companies that market the same compressor only with different paint and name. For what it’s worth, I got my Kobalt oiled 30 gallon for about the same price last month. When you are done, all you have to do is wrap up the cord and wheel the compressor away on its two convenient wheels.
When I realized the compressor was on the other day, I turned it off, but didn’t disconnect the hose. Before putting everything back together, I plugged in the compressor and boom, lights out – it tripped the breaker but not until after I turned the compressor onÂ by the power lever (wire fixed!). This compressor was only $400 I would recommend it to anyone, my only complaint is it is a bit noisy. This 80 gallon vertical air Craftsman Professional air compressor works for a long time and is extremely durable. However the compressor does have 2 air outlets and I happened to have an older large tank laying around. There are alot of factors to take into account when selecting an air compressor.
Craftsman-brand compressors were sold at Sears stores nationwide from July 2003 through December 2008 for between $279 and $329. Originally sold by Sears, Craftsman air compressors are more than tire and air mattress inflaters. Brushes probably wore out because I can spin the fan and get it to fire up. A new motor from Sears is 230 BUCKS. Most of the owners complained about the air pressure regulator which broke after some months and resulted in leakages. In a shop that anyone might ever want, which includes running a paint sprayer, a plasma cutter, and Air Arc or and particularly- run various air tools includindg an impact wrench etc.
I found a thread on a DIY forum about someone have a compressor problem, tripping the breaker. I found a used 60 gallon compressor on craigs list for $250 and that works great for painting and running tools. Just pull the line from the old broke compressor off the tank, install a T fitting and run it inline with your new compressor. Federal law bars any person from selling products subject to a publicly-announced voluntary recall by a manufacturer or a mandatory recall ordered by the Commission.
Buying a new compressor of the size I need is simply not in my budget at the moment so in a bit of desperation I decided to try and see if someone could fix it even temporarily and get me through the rest of this year. It’s absolutely vital that you muffle the noise somehow or install the compressor away from your work area. The good news is the 110-120 v, 15-amp craftsman air compressor can with an extension cord also!
I came across a compressor that the PO said would not build pressure, and that it sounded like there was a leak somewhere in it. To drain I simply place a rag over the plastic tube open the ball valve for a few seconds or until only air is coming out. But I made do with that until I built the 80 gallon compressor I have now, so yes it can be done but I wouldn’t spend too much on that compressor. If you are using the lubricated compressor in the scientific field, it may cause problems. Stay away from the sears oil free or any other, they are all the same for this price.
