First deal post......go easy.

Browsing the HF website, I have found a GREAT deal, if it will actually ship. They have a 60 gallon 165 PSI two stage air compressor for $159.97. **IT SAYS THAT IT IS "FACTORY RECONDITIONED, FACTORY PERFECT"**


http://www.harborfreight.com/5-hp...55391.html

I calculated shipping to northern California to be just under $100, with lift gate service extra. I am very sure that this is a price mistake (OH NO, I said it), as the exact same unit under a different brand name is $799. This is a pretty highly rated compressor, and a STEAL, even with shipping.

If I hadn't bought a similar model in August, I would be snatching this one up. Good luck

I can't believe this just hit FP as I just had the worst experience ever with this item and HF. I purchased this same refurbed unit in October for $639.99, it arrived with dents in the tank and the electrical cord near the switch was severed and repaired with electrical tape. I emailed Product Support and after a month they had the shipping company pick it up and they sent another refurbed unit. This time it was missing parts and the oil inside was milky brown like it was left out in the rain and of course there was no top cap where you put the oil in. This unit also had some deep scratches on the tank so I emailed Product Support and asked for a third and they said they were clean out of stock and that they would give me a full credit including the freight delivery. This was literally 3 weeks ago at this point and I just received the credit yesterday after almost 4 months. Now they are selling this for $159 when they literally couldn't supply a replacement to me 3 weeks ago? Someone is either getting the two units I returned or a ton of people had the same experience I did.

You've been warned.

It is cheap because it is Refurbished. Or as the description so elegantly puts it "Factory reconditioned, factory perfect"

Yeah and the only place it says this, as far as I can tell, is at the very bottom of the description in small font.

Thanks for the heads up, I now see that it says Factory reconditioned (I didn't know that HF sold reconditioned stuff on their site). I still think that this is a really great deal. You cannot even find an air compressor this size used for this cheap. I have updated the original post.

At this price and since it is reconditioned, I highly doubt it, but you can always check and report back with your findings.....Even if they did, they would be sold very quickly.

Keep in mind that's discounted from the refurb price!

The price for NEW is $789.

edit: shipping for me is $96 ...

edit: what are the wiring requirements? 220V?

Looks like it according to the manual [harborfreight.com].

Still seems like a pretty good deal for 15.8 CFM @ 90 PSI, even with shipping charges.

Hmm. Need to paint motorcycle fairings. This, plus the cheapo paint gun would come out cheaper than having them professionally done...even after shipping. Decisions...

Don't compare the two, they're different brands. The more expensive one has much better reviews. You're better off buying from Home depot or Lowes if you're going the expensive route.

They are both Harbor Freight brands, they are likely EXACTLY the same, just the Chicago Pheumatic is their new brand name. Also, most 60gallon compressors in the sub $1000 range are nearly identical, Husky, Kobalt, Porter Cable, etc.

This is well worth the price.
