I have used this compressor for about 6 months now. It has replaced both my 2 hp 4 gallon and my 1 hp 2 gallon units. I use it for everything from trim work to framing. Now mind you I don't do production framing, just your run of the mill small remodeling stuff, but it works great with my Paslode PF350. It has a 75% duty cycle which is pretty impressive considering its size. The two features that sold me on this unit were the output and the noise level. The output of the dual compressor heads is enough to keep up with my small framing tasks and its super quiet. I no longer put the compressor in another room or outside. I just use it right where I need it. I can work with my head right next to the unit and its no problem at all. Clients seem to love the unit as well.
