Decent compressor for the money as much power as you are going to get on a machine of this size at 2.5hp and air displacement of 270l/min, 9.5CFM. 8 bar working pressure is as much as most people will need

Great warranty on this machine of 3 years, says suitable for DIY and light trade I think it is an oiled compressor so should be more durable than the oil free ones you usually see around this price range (but don't quote me on that you should check in store if its oiled or not)

Also quite a few of air tools on sale on the same day will list them under the manufactures description

nowhere near the same quality the one you have linked too is under 2hp and 7.3CFM will also have only a one year guarantee. also this model has only been on sale once before that i know of, that was in may and it was the same price

Believe me the difference is minimal they are only good enough for DIY use and they will do exactly the same thing, have a look on Amazon there are others (I only linked to that one as an example) which are equal if not better quality including Wolf compressors for less money. Like I have already said if this was the same offer as it was previously (which I own and isn't great anyway) which included an assortment of tools it would be a good deal for the DIYer but as it is it's just an average DIY compressor at an above average price

The one from before was a lesser model. Similar to what you linked too.

You are are wrong about the difference being minimal. I'm an engineer and have been working with compressors every day for over 15 years. That 2.2 CFM can make the difference between being able to run a tool effectively or not....
You keep saying you can find a model the same for the same money..its possible but try find one as good as this with a 3 year guarantee! I bet you can't!

There is a wolf compressor on amazon which is very similar for £6 cheaper, but only has 5m air hose

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Wolf-Sioux-9-5cfm-Compressor-complete/dp/B004CRF9I0/ref=sr_1_4?s=diy&ie=UTF8&qid=1363212154&sr=1-4

When I say cheaper I mean if you add accesories pack from Aldi the total comes to £120 , but includes a 10m air hose.

I am thinking of buying this and am thinking the accessories pack is a must have.I am also going to look at Costco`s michelin 24 ltr one as well, which does include attacthments , but price seems to vary between beanches £96 to £119.

Its actually £5 more if you include shipping.

But apart from that they seem to be the same. Tho the fact the aldi one also has 3 years peace of mind would make me go for that...

I wouldn't rate the air hose that comes with the wolf one or the one with the also pack to be honest. I'm sure they will both be fine if you take care of them but not if your are dragging the hose across the ground often.

I bought this amazon.co.uk/gp/…125 as I needed to extend my regular use one and I have to say I was surprised by how durable it seems to be.. was well worth the money

I bought Aldi one, have not used properly yet, apart from blowing leaves across garage floor (had to have a shot of it really).

Thankfully I read instruction book as I was setting up , as it states that oil has to be half way up in viewing window at side of motor and that any more than half full, could cause damage.The thing was full to the brim, I had to open up the bleeding screw and drain half of the oil out.

ps noisy **** of a thing, and get a feeling that with prolonged use (fence spraying etc.) the motor will be on permanently to keep tank up to pressure ,as it kicked in after a short blast in garage

if you start spraying it will be running all the time but to be honest any machine you can run off a domestic power supply is going to be the same. make sure you check the oil again before you use it,, if you transported it on its side it may have needed time for the oil to settle

all these machines are noisy i think mine is over 90db, its an ear defender job if using it in a confined space, another reason to get a good long hose :P i mostly use mine for running a couple of nail and staple guns
