          1 of Top 2 Central Pneumatic Compressors

          This reciprocating compressor is defined as powerful and portable. User friendliness is accompanied by an oil refill window and tank and outlet gauges that let you know when it’s time for maintenance. The easy to carry handle and rolling wheels option make this compressor transportable to anywhere it is needed. A top two favorite in single stage Central Pneumatic compressor line by Harbor Freight Tools.

           

          Design

          If you’re looking for ease of use, the clear oil window provides an added advantage in knowing when it’s time to change the oil. Easy to read gauges are mounted beautifully so there’s no need to wrry about maintenance. Some have said that the wheels are a bit poorly designed as there is only one bolt holding them on, but easy enough to change if needed.

          Performance

          This Central Pneumatic model boasts a powerful heavy duty 2.5 HP Motor similar to our other top pick, the 21 Gal Central Pneumatic compressor. This model will get the job done and operate the majority of air tools without any problems.

          Portability

          With the small product size and added portability options of wheels and carrying handles, this compressor makes for one of the easiest to move around. The weight only comes in at 60 pounds and can add a convenience factor of not having to worry about lugging it around with difficulty.

          Sound

          With the 2.5 HP motor on such a small and compact product, the sound does tend to carry and be a bit noisy. This can be solved by buying an added silencer to assist.
