Overview

Editor's Review: Tool Test: Compact Compressors

review date: July 12, 2012

Feature: A heavy duty roll cage gives the Industrial Air compressor a tough look. A quick fill up and recovery time set this larger compressor apart from some of the smaller ones. Two built in hose outlets allow for multiple tools to be run at the same time without needing a splitter. The gauges and hoes outlets are well located and easy to access.

Flaw: At 47 lbs, the Industrial Air is the heaviest of the under 2 gallon compressors reviewed. At 91 dbs, it has a loud and rather “clack-y” sounding motor, with a strong vibration.

Bottom Line: Heavy and loud would unfortunately be the first two adjectives to describe the compressor. It also vibrates enough to bodily move itself across the floor when the motor kicks on. And while it does have a good recovery and fill up time, for the price, there are other compressors for nearly the same cost that arenʼt as loud or heavy and have comparable specs.
