Air Hose Leaking
The black air hose started to leak around the swivel part after a year. They're sending me a replacement and we'll see if this one leaks. Overall though it's an excellent product for the price.

Bought over the winter
Used it today and found out that it dose not like to be left out in the cold, motor started turning very slow and popped breaker on power bar. After a few tries it finally started working faster. Recommend keeping in warm place prior to use.

Used it once then the motor seized. Tried to exchange it but the only option was sending it for repair. Not very satisfied because of the return policy

Purchased this on sale. It's very loud but works good. Makes trim and minor wood working a breeze. Lots of power and maintains pressure well. Guages are nice and placed well. Very heavy so if you are using this for mobile work, install the handle, otherwise purchase a smaller lighter unit.
Installed this in my garage with the air hose reel that goes on sale and it's a sweet setup.

Worth the price...
I purchased this compressor while it was on sale, so being it was only $99 - is it still worth the price?
I've used off and on for the last four days, and it has not missed a beat. Lots of constant air pressure for spraying air and pumping up tires.
It is worth the price at $200+. I would like to mention the great customer service and helpful staff at CT, they get a A+ rating.

Small compressor for small jobs - QC issues
This compressor has worked well for multiple applications from roofing, brad nailing to tire inflation and just general dusting. It is very portable and fairly solid construction.
Keep in mind this is a small compressor with a small tank and intended for jobs where the tool only requires relatively small amounts of air. For example, not suitable for sand blasting, spray painting or use with an impact gun or die grinder tool.
The issue my compressor had was the weld joint for tube on which the regulator sat was leaking. It was a poor quality weld that should not have passed QC (must have been a Friday afternoon) and I did not notice it. The leaking sound I heard I passed off as the typical poor quality fitting connections. Not so.
The bottom line is this is a good compressor for small jobs but you will have to perform your own QC inspection of the assembly prior to putting in use. Keep your receipt for the warranty period as you may have to go back to CT a few times before you get a good one.

not built to last :(
After using this only a handful of times, it is already losing most of it's power.
That combined with difficult returns and I cannot recommend.

Only used it a few times with a brad nailer., it started smoking and died.
Wish i had a receipt.
