    This compressor is great! I bought it to shoot brads or small nails into crown molding and it works perfect. The compressor itself arrived looking brand new and has continued to work flawlessly since I got it.

    The Capacitor broke off due to the vibration of the unit. It lasted only about 6 months before the capacitor broke. I would not recommend this unit.

    Great product, just what I wanted. Use it roughly every week and have had it for over a year now. It is not a big one, of course, so not good for big projects, but for airing up the occasional tire and smaller jobs (like air blowing the garage floor) it works great.

    Good morning, I purchased this compressor for the purpose of installing hardwood floors. This product has been up to the task. We use it every day and it has held up very well. I would rate this product very high. Just as good as buying new. Thank you, THE SANDMAN

    I bought this compressor to use around my house for small jobs from trim installation to adding air to car tires. It has successfully accomplished all the jobs I have put in front of it. I am very happy with this purchase.

    Have only used it once and it appears to be a solid product. Time will tell as it is going to get put to the test soon and I will comment back in a year.

    I used it for trim work and it did a great job. My neighbor who's owned a Porter Cable pancake compressor foe several years was envious. The Hitachi EC79 is much quieter and recovers quicker. I'm very pleased

    Has worked great for a year now, no problems. Take a little longer than my other compressors to build up pressure.

    I purchased a Hitachi 6 gallon compressor from Recon Sales in March of 2009. This is one of the best tools I have ever owned. Came to me promptly and was in new condition.I could not find a flaw. The compressor has performed beautifully since I received it. I will not hesitate to shop here in the future. Garrett
