Makita MAC700 Air Compressor ~$200 at Multiple Retailers

Savings:
10-20%
This is about 10 to 20 percent off regular. Not often on sale. Its been this price before but not since about last September. Great compressor if you want to buy one to last you your lifetime.

IHL, JC Cayer and Amazon all have it at this price. IHL being $190 w/ a 25 ft Makita hose

Max Pressure is 130PSI.. the CFM rating is 3.3 @ 90 if thats what you mean

Ive had my compressor regulated at right around 100 PSI for probably 5 years now had to lower it a couple times though

Thinking of getting this.

Use will be mostly light stuff on the car, renovations in the house (again nothing major, maybe flooring or trim, etc), maybe use it for painting, etc.
Since it comes with the hose it seems like a good deal, but I know nothing about compressors, so I don't know if it's alright. Lots of great reviews on Amazon.

Any feedback? I don't have any air tools, but they are often on sale in kits.


EDIT - I guess it's only the one from IHL that comes with the hose - looks like that's the best deal at $190 and free shipping.
Any experiences with IHL? It's free shipping over $149

Most don't feel that oil-free is necessarily a good thing. The better-quality compressors use oil lubrication for longer life.

I got one of these a couple years ago. Hd had it as a deal of the day for about 199.
It was really good. But the regulator started leaking. Also read online after that the houses and adapter ports were swapped out by a lot of people to make it really good. Husky has a version of this too. EXACT same but Husky stamp at HD for cheaper.
If you can, get the 4620A model. More cfm at 90 psi. I would. Doesn't consistently drive my pasload framing nailer.
A little heavy too. If you're just gunna use it to trim and stuff around the house, inflate tires, get a pancake when it's on sale. Light and small. Works great.

I'm thinking the California one is less decibel

You're right. That's what sold me a couple years ago. However. It is not as quiet as it's made out to be. But yes. Not as loud. If I could go back. I would grab a decent 3+ cfm @90 psi pancake compressor. I use it maybe 5 times a year tops if that helps. So the pancake for me would have made more sense.

How about this one at Canadian Tire by Maztercraft?


https://m.canadiantire.ca/#/products/pr ... u=1995704P

Or this cheaper one of the same make also at Canadian Tire.

https://m.canadiantire.ca/#/products/pr ... quantity=1



I want a good general purpose one because I do lots of DIY projects all year round ranging from hardwood flooring to painting to machining.

Please advise!

that 4610A would not be enough to run the spray paint gun.

The 20 Gal at Krappy tire should do fine for spraying.
But, if you're hardly going to spray, and the rest is not so volume related, get a smaller tank. That 20 Gal is big and heavy!.
If you're willing to spend that much ( the 4610A originally) consider this one:
https://www.amazon.ca/Makita-MAC2400-Bi ... ds=mac2400

Double the weight of the Aluminum 4610A however.
If I could go back, I'd grab it!
The 4610 is a decent buy. But not for almost $400.

Note that the makita is oil ( which isn't bad. Just a maintenance thing to watch for )

Want the CAT still and want it new with a different label and a more accurate price for what you get?
Consider this too then:
https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.sile ... 26928.html

There are some choices.
Stay away from the mastercraft. I've seen my neighbour kill 2. Actually, I killed his last MC one lol. But I swear I barely used it. Motor just died.

oh I see, thanks for that information. The homedpeot link you gave doesn't work.

I'm looking to spend under $250 for some really good sale item.
The Makita that you linked looks like a ninja power house, outside of my budget. But very sturdy. I could by two krappy tire compressors for the price of one Makita lol.

Weird, I just double checked the link.
It's good.
Alright, open up the HD . CA website.
In the search type in 4610A.
You will see 2 compressors.
Check out the Husky for $249.
I only recommended the MAC2400 because you mentioned CAT 4610A which is in that price range.
If I had to choose between those 2, the MAC2400 for sure.

You can actually fit 3 mastercrafts when they go on sale for the price of that MAC. :)
However, it would also be a mistake. :)
