  • Harbor Freight 60 gal 2 Stage refurb'd compressor $159 + $99 shipping

    This is a sensational deal IMO. I have the single stage (cheap) version of this compressor and it has served me excellent. All out I paid double this when it was on sale.

      No kidding- to the point I'm suspicious I missed something. But I cannot figure out what.

        Reviews are hit and miss on the refurb. Reviews are good on A-stock.

        I called HF to see if any were available for local pickup, and unfortunately none are. I may still give it a gamble on the CC.

          IF I were to buy it, I would surely give it a workout in the first 30 days of ownership to ensure that IF it were to fail, it would fail then. Maybe a controlled leak so it keeps cycling?

            The 2 complaints I saw: (1) leaks around threaded fittings and (2) faulty pressure switches. Both of these are fixable. Even if you buy a $50 pressure switch, a 2-stage compressor is like $1000, so a pretty good deal.

              Agree- compressors are simple and relatively similar across most brands at this level. I've had zero issues with my HF single stage, though it doesn't get used much regularly, it has been use a lot at times. I think the leaking thing goes for most things chinese-tool.
