Rated 5 out of 5 by from About this about a month ago it was great best cho

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent compressor Hitachi has a winner in the Ec99s. This compressor is fast and quiet. It doesn't trip breakers even when both my 12" miter saw and it are running at the same time, but the most impressive thing is noise level or lack thereof. I own another well known dark green compressor that is sold as a 60 DB quiet compressor. Using a DB meter app standing next to both compressors the quiet compressor measured 68db while the Hitachi measured 70db. Hitachi really missed the boat by not touting this compressors quietness. I'm super impressed with everything about it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good compressor. Shaky packaging This is a good compressor. It's a bit louder than I thought it would be, but still quieter than many other units. It recovers quickly during air usage and is well built. The only reason I don't give it a 5 is because of the factory packaging, which is subpar. My unit barely made it through the shipping process, which was only halfway across the country from Acme. If it had to go any farther, the carton would have failed. There's nothing in the directions about breaking in the pump, but I did so anyway as I usually do with an oiled compressor. The unit starts up with what seems like a semi soft start that doesn't suck excessive amperage and strain the breakers wherever I use it. All in all this is a great choice from among the various units available today, and I would say that with it's pricing (which keeps going down) it's a superb value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great portable air supply i recently moved to a condo. i had to sell my air compressor (vertical 80 gal). but still needed a compressor for the car, golf car, and cart to haul heavy stuff after shopping. (from the communal garage thru the building to my unit) i keep it in my storage closet outside the unit on the fourth floor. it is one of my prized possessions. thank you Hitachi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Reliability Impressed with it's overall quality and reliability. Quick recovery, holds pressure, and very transportable. Excellent compressor to support one or two carpenters.
