The ones that have given it high marks generally say that this product works extremely well for many different applications, but you should know exactly what you can and can’t use it for. It is a good product for general contracting jobs, but for heavy jobs it gets a little bogged down. The also comment that is product is much better made than other similar products, durable and long lasting. They like its lightweight, compact size and quiet operation.

The two one star reviewers complained that it broke down quickly, didn’t perform well, and the pressure knob failed quickly. One of the biggest complaints here was really that it lost pressure after only a few good uses. Other complaints were about return policies, which were poor or entirely non existent.
