  • I could easily use it in my workshop with my trim and ...
Style: MAC2400 Pattern Name: Air Compressor
I've got three air 80 gallon in my workshop for sandblasting and mechanic's air ratchets; a small, super-quiet compressor for use with trim and pin nallers for woodworking and cabinetry, and this twin tank Makita which I use for larger construction projects which require framing nailers. I've had two other contractor-style air compressors in the past and this Makita is more powerful and a heck of a lot quieter than either of the older ones. This Makita is SO QUIET, I could easily use it in my workshop with my trim and pin nailers without shattering my nerves from noise, and the air volume in CFM's it puts out easily outpaces the air I could ever use in my framing nailer To be honest, I think this Makita is the perfect, all-around compressor for nail-gun use whether on a construction project or working quietly in your home workshop. ... show more

  • been disappointed with any of my Makita power tools
Style: MAC2400 Pattern Name: Air Compressor
It's early times, but so far I'm impressed with this compressor. (I've never. ever. been disappointed with any of my Makita power tools. It's a lot quieter than my previous (Non-Makita) compressor and sits solidly and relatively vibration free on its rubber isolation-mount feet. It's early times, but I'm pleased with it so far. Relatively quiet, relatively vibration free, compact and from everything I can see of its components it's typical Makita quality. I have a lot of Makita tools and I've never been dissatisfied with any of them. So no complaints. A few comments for a potential buyer. First I wish I had bought the larger capacity model - next one up. This compressor is doing what it's rated to do but my unrealistic expectations were that it would do what my 4HP, 10Gallon compressor did. I use a compressor primarily to blow off my tractor, lawnmower, sickle-bar mower and such and to inflate the many tires around here. Perfectly adequate for inflation. For blowing out filters, radiators and nooks and crannies with an air gun the pressure on this model drops fairly quickly so I have to stop and let the pressure build-up again then resume. Not a problem, but worth a mention. Secondly, this guy is heavy, not to be toted easily, though the handle helps a lot. So give some thought to where you put it. Thirdly, the components you want access to are on all four sides, e.g. checking the oil level on the left, on/off switch on the right, tank pressure relief around the back and of course the gauges, pressure regulator and outlets on the front. Not a problem but a consideration when you're deciding where to put it. ... show more

  • Amazing Industrial Grade Compressor
Style: MAC2400 Pattern Name: Air Compressor
The Makita MAC 2400 is listed as an industrial duty compressor. My view as an engineer is that the weight, quality of finish, quality of components and every aspect of it seems to confirm this statement. I don't mind the 77 pound weight which even an old guy can tote around. The manufacturer recommends directly plugging it into a receptacle without using an extension cord and just using more hose. This won't affect the motor like the typical voltage drop of an extension cord. I would also recommend using a 20 amp outlet, not 15A although it seems to run okay with a 15A supply. My ten year old compressor that this one replaced is a similar name brand, twin blue tank commercial grade compressor, but the Makita seems superior in every aspect. It is surprisingly quiet, but supplies an enormous amount of air. After careful research I opted for the Mac2400 and definitely am glad that I did. Most of the cheap pancake compressors I reviewed don't come close to the Makita Mac2400 quality. Of all the tool purchases I have made over the last few years, this has been the best. I recommend that you look into the Mac2400 before spending your hard earned money on a cheap throw away unit. Amazon had an Amazing price and their 2 day delivery was accomplished in one day. A+ on the Makita and A+ on the delivery. ... show more

  • Excellent Air Compressor. Great Quality.
Style: MAC2400 Pattern Name: Air Compressor
This is definitely one of my most favorite items I've purchased from Amazon. Excellent air compressor. Well constructed, good workmanship, quality parts, smooth running, and it even looks great, with a quality paint job. Plus it's much quieter than the "Task Force" 5 gallon compressor that I replaced. And the performance of this Makita puts that 5 gallon "Task Force" compressor to shame. It easily runs every air tool I've hooked up to it...nail gun, staple gun, paint sprayer, etc. Also, in the questions section for this compressor, there have been some nebulous answers as to whether this compressor will run an impact wrench without difficulty. I can assure you that this compressor can run a 1/2 inch impact wrench with no difficulty. This compressor is fairly heavy. As you can see from the pictures I've included, I mounted it to a cart that I purchased from Lowes, so now I never have to lift it again. The cart came with 4 inch polyurethane wheels, but the wheels had no brakes. So I replaced them with a set of 5 inch polyurethane wheels with brakes. (I put the 4 inch wheels on my Rubbermaid mop bucket...much better than the wheels it came with). The compressor would have probably stayed firmly planted on the cart due to the compressor's weight, but I preferred to bolt it to the cart. The compressor has four rubber feet bolted to the frame, so bolting the compressor to a cart is simply a matter of drilling four holes in the proper place on the cart, remove the bolts from the rubber feet on the bottom of the compressor, then set the compressor on the cart, then run bolts through the holes in the cart, through the rubber feet, and then tighten the bolts into the frame of the compressor. The rubber feet that come with the compressor would probably be very good at cushioning any vibration from the compressor to the cart, but as long as I had them off I decided to replace them with a set of very high quality sorbothane anti-vibration pads ($30 for a set of four 2" x 2" pads). I drilled a hole in the middle of each pad then bolted the compressor and pads onto my cart. I put the rubber feet that came with the compressor on the bottom of the large case of my home-made computer. Perfect fit and better than the feet that came on the computer case. As you can see, I also bolted a retractable air hose reel onto my cart with 50 feet of good quality rubber air hose. I also put an air/water separator onto the air hose that does a very nice job of removing water from the line before the air enters whatever air tool I have attached. A push-valve on the separator allows you to drain any drops of water that it might collect with just the push of a finger. One more thing. The compressor comes with one small bottle of compressor oil. The compressor will take the entire contents of that bottle to get the oil level to the full mark on the oil sight glass. I filled the compressor with the included oil and then ran the compressor for the required break-in period specified in the owner's manual. After that break-in period, I immediately changed the oil. I used high quality Royal Purple synthetic compressor oil when I changed the oil, and the compressor runs even quieter with the Royal Purple synthetic then it did with the oil that was included with the compressor. I hope this review is helpful for anyone looking for a very decent air compressor, as well as giving some helpful suggestions for mounting the compressor to a cart. ... show more
