Makita MAC700 Big Bore 2.0 HP Air Compressor Review

makita-mac700Someone that likes the do-it yourself might pass by this Portable Air Compressor in favor of an oil-free, no-maintenance model, but it’s actually one of the best on the market for the homeowner, hobbyist, and weekend warrior. There are three major factors, first, it has the quietest compressor we have ever encountered. It’s a remarkable departure in a genre of tools that normally force you to suspend conversation while it’s cycling. The Makita MAC700 Portable Air Compressor puts out 80 decibels, according to the folks at Makita, and when you compare that to the 90 and up you get from most units, that’s practically a hum. So we like this for household use, especially in a basement shop.

The Makita MAC700 Big Bore 2.0 HP Air Compressor offers individuals the convenience of a strong and powerful air compressor that is reliable and dependable.  In addition, the compressor pulls a low amp amount, so that it saves energy and there is less of a chance of blowing a breaker. The roll bar protects the compressor and the cast-iron cylinder keeps it strong. The oil sight glass makes for easy maintenance and ensures a longer life. The 2.0 horsepower motor ensures that it can handle just about any job you throw at it.
