Munky332: so how goes this compressor? still going strong?
Photon Media: About how loud is this? it seems very loud in the video. Is it bearable to stand next to with no hearing protection?
cloudsifter11: 6 month review update?
Geoffrey Morrison: Better tools often are stolen, too. Thieves prove more likely to overlook HFT tools--they can't get much for them used. Even if shop HFT tools fail and need re-purchasing, your shop-guys definitely come out ahead.
Hand tools don't fail very often. Power tools: Reviews help. Other makes offer their problems, too. Quality has improved over the years,: The PRC now focuses on pear-head rachets--the other type is rare. Pear-head proved a huge favor from US makers: A crumb or two, please!
Geoffrey Morrison: It's a business, and it's likely a good decision. If they buy Snapon or something like that, they face financial crucifixion! (Craftsman, Kobalt, etc. comes from the PRC, too--what's the point?)
Note what's happened to guys who relied upon tools during the financial meltdown: To get an idea, visit pawnshops which try, in vain, to unload the millions of tools they have now. Snapon, MAC, Matco, Craftsman (even their large and fancy rolling tool caddies)--and practically anything else, too....
Geoffrey Morrison: I note this 3-gal model every time I visit HFT. (Don't get CH's 1-gal.) For topping off my tires outside, I obtained the HFT 5-gal airtank, instead. It appears to function OK--fittings are somewhat cheap. (Not for pros!) To drain water, instructions indicate removing the hose and plumber-taping it to reinstall--I'm afraid that after every use re-install will kill any remaining integrity of the fittings, though. What I should have done was to install the dryer on my compressor beforehand....
Geoffrey Morrison: This isn't directly related: Some time ago, I noted that Porter-Cable sold refurb 6-gal pancakes online for about $100. That compresssor model is really poplular--it's oil-free, though. (Oil-serviced compressors last longer.) Perhaps Porter-Cable sells other compressor refurbs, too. I haven't checked again in a long while. I wouldn't know about how PC gets compressors to such retail customers, though: Free shipping?
PudgyK: My buddies run a custom motorcycle shop and they are becoming well known too. Guess where they got every single one of their tools.. HF. :)
PudgyK: They sell an air brushing compressor, gonna buy it soon. Looks legit.
Peter Hewel: I need a compressor that can sustain 125 lbs pressure for 60-90+ seconds. I clean air ducts with a 1/4 hose and a skipper ball. The feed from the compressor is 3/8 to a check valve. The air drives the line down the duct and when I pull it back, loosens debris. Could this do that? The loose debris is pushed by the system and sucked up by a vacuum about 2x the power of good shop vac. Thanks.
origionaldz: Mine is still holding up pretty well, its due for an oil change again. I had one problem where the automatic shutoff contact stuck closed and kept running, luckily the pressure relief valve opened and no harm done. I have it in the basement and was working outside with the air and I didn't know it until I went back in the house. Other than that its been ok. I can't say for sure about the bad reviews. I had a bad experience with harbor freights customer service both in store and on the phone
anthony diodati: yeah,i got a "good" Sanborne compressor, ~ 20 gallon, but the tank has a pinhole. Cheapest 22 gal. tank I can find is close to $300.00 & shipping. Hate to take a chance on craiglist, might get a tank thats ready to leak again.
Is the HF compressor still holding up well?
The reviews seem good, but do the really post the bad reviews?
origionaldz: You probably should but I leave the air in it. I just drain the tank to get the water out periodically.
anthony diodati: yeah, but l guess your really supposed to drain it after every use,are you not?
Jake Rhoten: im looking at the harbor freight small pancake compressor for my airbrush, but im concerned about the noise level. is it loud?
Jake Rhoten: cool
GrayWraith: I am looking at this compressor too. I am hesitant because it is sold at Harbor Freight. What kind of reliability has everyone seen?
origionaldz: Yea, when the tank is empty she takes a bit to fill completely up, top off isn't that bad though.
felipe maldonado: Haha I fell asleep after listening for 5 minutes . Then I woke up when it stoped
