The tank itself was(seemed) to be in perfect condition when it arrived. No dent's, nothing seemed broken. Looking at the pressure gauge, I thought, wow, a glycerin filled gauge, so I thought nothing more about it, until I took it to be filled with air. Upon picking it up, I noticed the "bubble" didn't move like it should have, so I touched the glass and found out it was actually cracked and thus, fell inside of the gage.
Since this is the only imperfection I see, so far, I will eat the cost of a new gage and not waste my time/energy of packing it back up and waiting on Amazon to replace it.
The item came very heavily packaged, so I know this was not damaged during shipping.
I can not recommend this brand because of mine, and other's complaints.
* Tank has loose grit inside, of unknown composition. * Manifold and pressure-relief valve pull-ring were contaminated with sticky, gooey pipe thread sealant. * When filled to 70 PSI, and air valve is closed fully, tank leaks 3 PSI per hour, all the way down to zero. * Shipping weight is given as 20 pounds, but tank with hose weighs only 15 pounds. (that's good!) * Tank has small dents, dings, and irregularities which are probably just cosmetic. * Manual says (and depicts) product comes with a "Universal Adapter" locking tire chuck, but product has only a non-locking tire chuck. * Manual says product ships with air hose disconnected from tank, but air hose was connected to tank. * Box says product includes a regulator, but product does not include a regulator. * In the Spanish section of the manual, the figures are in English. However, in the French section the figures are in French. * I recommend adding rubber feet, especially on...
This is a great buy, much cheaper than similar tanks anywhere else. It is light and easy to transport. The issues with it are an inaccurate gauge and every fitting will leak slightly if you don't remove them and reseal with joint compound. I say this b/c I know a lot of people don't have tools or don't want to mess with it but then you need to be prepared for it not to hold air very long. I think a lot of the real negative reviews come from it not holding air for days. It is understandable to be bothered by that but for DIY types resealing the fittings takes just a few minutes then it is good to go.I bought this mainly to use for remote locations around the house where I'm using my brad nailer/stapler. I got tired of dragging air hoses all over the place just to do baseboards and trim. I did about 100' of baseboard and trim and the tank never dropped below 90 psi. Worth every penny but I added my own quick connect hoses since all it comes with is a tire inflator. Can't go wrong on the...
