Great little compressor
21 Feb 2015
By GraemeP
, Farnborough
" A great little compressor that is easy to move around and use in places it would be hard to drag or lift a standard size one. And best of all (for me anyway) it easily fits in the boot of my car. "

Brilliant
7 Jan 2015
By Thumbs1
, Surrey
" I required a portable compressor to check tyre pressures on the cars in the family
It is brilliant, small compact light wieght and very portable ideal
The most amazing feature is how quiet it is when operating not deafening like other compressors
With the price reduction it became a product i could not be without i am very pleased

Small but perfectly formed
26 Nov 2014
By Driscoll
, London
" This compressor really is FIVE STAR. Small, very portable but man-enough for the job.
Works perfectly with our nail gun, being used with 40mm nails through 9mm ply on to 50mm timber.
All round great buy.

Best allround compressor
16 Jun 2014
By foodwalla

" I bought this compressor to take with me where there is no electric as the small start up motor was brilliant to work with the small generator I bought from Screwfix this machine will work my very large Bostich 4inch nail gun better than my older larger compressor and very easy to store away "

Very good low power compressor
25 Sep 2012
By MinimagCo
, Lingfield, Surrey
" One of our manufacturing processes requires a small amount of oil-free air at 4 Bar. This Stanley unit provides us with exactly what's needed in a compact and reasonably quiet package.
The machine has no unloader valve, but the combination of universal motor and gearing to the single-cylinder compressor means it starts easily into 6 Bar, the cut-in point. The output regulator copes very well with the 6 to 8 Bar receiver pressure change, so our process gets a virtually constant pressure.
We leave it on a timeswitch, safe in the knowledge it will always start up.
NOTE: This is a low-power machine by design. Buy a workshop compressor if you intend inflating lots of tyres, paint spraying or using garage air tools. "

does what is required
18 May 2011
By woodworkdave50
, berkhamsted
" this is a great little compressor for small burst requirements
easy to carry and store
no it wont do spraying or any constant air requirments - for this you will need a far larger tank - 50 ltrs or more
i am very pleased with it as a tool for nailing - 15 - 20 pins and its filling again very quietly i will say - very pleased just what i wanted

Value for money.
16 Mar 2015
By Bibio
, Middlesbrough
" A great little air compressor for the money, it was on offer. It would not have been
worth it if I had paid full price. light and easy to fit in the boot of a car.
The air line fitting was the wrong type and had to be changed,that was extra cost and time. Works OK with my Nailers 18G and 16G. fast recovery rate. Have not tried it on anything
bigger yet, would probably struggle I think given the size of the tank.
Not as quiet as I expected.

Light and portable
10 Jan 2015
By Horticulturist
, Kent
" Ideal for winterising mobile home. Modern mobile homes have lots of non-return valves in the water system so water cannot be just drained, but needs to be blown through. Compressor costs only about half the annual charge of having it done by Park maintenance, so has paid for itself in the first year and can also be used for other purposes. "

Good but only for 16 months!
8 Sep 2014
By Agile
, London
" I bought it for occasional use and particularly for topping up my vehicle tyres.
So only occasional use for say a few minutes every 2-4 weeks. Hardly significant use at all!
Now it has just failed after only 16 months!
The warranty is only for 12 months.
Not the kind of reliability one would expect of anything bearing the "Stanley" name! "

By DartmoorKid
, Dartmoor
" Bought this as a secondary unit for portable use cleaning gas injectors etc. Non-UK standard fittings a pain which means extra cost as soon as you buy the unit. Worked well until it burned out which was sooner than I had expected. No-one knowing anything at all about paint spraying would buy this to spray with! "

Ideal for small jobs!
2 Dec 2010
By zebs
, Anglesey
" Below stated power, Only 0.3HP(60Ltr\Min).
At last, a small compressor for cleaning inside Pc's etc when out on site (cans cost a few quid each).
With a small tank it's uses are limited as most things need plenty of air flow, but for what I need it's fine. It will inflate 1 tyre at a time on a tank-full when not connected, or will refill in 90 secs between each tyre.
It sprays air through the direct nozzle at a quick rate emptying the tank in 30 seconds with the strong blast just for the initial few seconds. All round good little compressor but for small jobs only.
