Posted 24th Mar
I have bought one of these seems like a decent little air compressor for the money and comes with 2 year guarantee and has an oil free motor.

You can get £5 off a £30 spend when you sign up to b and q club membership and also next day delivery is free.

They had a few left in the Leeds store but can order these online for collection.

These are still a bit overpriced for what they are. They are noisy and produce only 4 cfm of free air delivery (check whatever air tool you may be wanting to use from any compressor before buying one. Also remember to double that figure on the tool of it says average or 50% on it). If used regularly the piston seal quickly wears out along with the barrel (no real piston rings here). They are also belt driven from a small brushed motor and again the brushes wear quite quickly and destroy the motor commutator. If that's not enough they even waste some of the air they do make the to not fitting a pressure switch which vents air when turning off the unit... To overcome this and stop the motor from stalling upon turning back on (due to back pressure) they drill a small hole in the side of the barrel!
If you wish to check what cfm any compressor is producing then just multiply the tank size in litres by the cut out pressure in bar. Then time now long it takes to fill up with air. Now divide the first answer by the fill time in minutes (eg. 3mins 12 secs will = 3.2). Now divide this answer by 28.3 and you will get the cfm free air figure.
The bottom line is, this compressor is ok for short runs of low air requirement tools... If you don't mind the noise.

Can you use these to paint walls and doors?


No, it's too heavy. Your arms would get tired.

No.
These are great for inflating tyres, swimming pools etc but won't have enough umph to use with most air power tools. We have an Aldi 24l one - fine for tyres and spraying underseal on the car we are restoring (in short bursts) but not up to use with a sand blaster or air ratchet.
Seems to be out of stock?

I want one so I can stop buying cans upon cans of air duster. I restore a lot of dusty old stuff and just a good supply of compressed air to hit it with would be a big help.

Awesome info cheers


I bought one as an experiment as starting a few upholstery projects and need it to power an air staple gun.
get one from Aldi or Lidl, much bigger pump and more air flow. Also 3 yr guarantee.

Aldi & Lidl both do theirs at regular intervals and they MANY many times better than this - usually £69 or £79 quid.

This would be fine for that.

Would agree but I personally needed a small one as have limited space to work with in the garage and should be ok for one staple gun for a bit of upholstery, the aldi and lidl ones werent available also last i checked
