Buy in Confidence with In-Depth Air Compressor Reviews
When making any significant purchase, especially when it comes to air compressors, there are a number of factors that you need to consider when you are looking for air compressor reviews.
What do you need a compressor for, do you need it to be portable, and are you going to be using it in on a professional jobsite?
These are all questions that you need to be asking, and the right kind of review will have no trouble answering these questions, and many more.
Power Tools Ninja is here so that you don’t have to go digging to find accurate information on the air compressors that you’re considering for purchase.
Our detailed air compressor reviews look at numerous technical features, from the type of hose connectors that a particular compressor uses, all the way through to electrical requirements and the power that a compressor produces. If you want the full picture before you lay your money down, then these reviews are exactly what you’ve been looking for.
Key Aspects to Look for in Any Review
The motor on an air compressor is hugely important, because it determines how quickly air can be compressed and stored. Of course, for demanding usage, the motor won’t be able to produce enough air to power tools in real time, so a storage tank is used. No matter how powerful a compressor is, make sure that you also pay close attention to the tank section in any air compressor review.
The tank should be large enough for your needs, and it should also be of high quality, without leaks or design flaws.
If you’re using a compressor for more than just inflatable objects and vehicle tires, then you’re going to need some decent output.
Our reviews look at the CFM and PSI ratings on air compressors to determine how much air can be moved on any particular setting, and the pressure at which it will be released. If you’re using pneumatic tools, then you will be able to quickly find out if any particular air compressor is suitable for powering them.
Another key consideration, and you should always look for this in an air compressor review, is the usability of any particular unit. Large dials, clear labelling, and even portability should all be considered.
You may also be concerned with noise, and our reviews cover decibel ratings for the majority of the compressors that are reviewed.
Some Featured Power Tools Ninja Reviews
We reviewed the Porter Cable C2002, a 150 PSI compressor with a six-gallon tank. You can check our full review to find out why it is one of the best compressors for $150.
The Makita MAC700 was another portable compressor that we found to be good for brad nailers, stapling guns, smaller impact wrenches, and airbrush attachments. You can check all of the details in our detailed review.
When we reviewed the Makita MAC2400, we found it to be more expensive than some of the other models, but for good reason. It has a high CFM rating of 4.8 at 40 PSI, making it compatible with some serious tools. Find out what else we liked, and didn’t like, in the comprehensive review.
Another model reviewed was the DeWALT DWFP55130, a unit marketed as a heavy duty trim compressor. We found it to be relatively lightweight, easily portable, and good for lightweight nailing and stapling with pneumatic tools. Learn more about it in our full write-up.
