I have the Mac700, and yes, it is heavy. However, it is very quiet, has great output, does not blow circuits, and is oil lubricated for long life. It really is a fantastic compressor. I also have the Senco PC1010, which is also a great compressor. I have never used the Senco PC1131, but I believe it's the same as the Rolair Bull, which is also known as a good compressor.Hey guys I need some help.
I'm looking to upgrade from hf compressor to a better one. I've narrowed my choices to three, hitachi ec89, senco pc1131 & makita mac700.
I'm liking the hitachi because I can get it from my locals lowes, returns and warranty would be easier to handle. The reviews on it is mix, some good & some bad.
I like the cfm numbers on senco. The reviews have been pretty good and seems like allot of people like senco compressors.
The makita has good cfm numbers, small size, but heavy for its size.
I'm currently leaning towards the hitachi at the moment or should I order the senco and wait couple days?
For this application the Senco PC1010 is a perfect tool. Very light weight. It is a small capacity compressor but it will drive 2" crown staples and any 18 or 23 g pins in any wood/cabinet I have ever needed to add trim to. I don't think it would like Ipe or Jatoba or a few hard maple boards but 99.8% it's a perfect tool for what you are asking about Rich.I'm in the market for a small compressor I can throw behind the seat of my truck..
portable and light... Just to shoot some pins and brads nothing big.
What about those hotdog tanks?
Senco, makita and rolair has some decent looking ones... what do you think?
