I bought one from lowes it was a cambell hausfield (spelling?) Its the one that comes with a nail gun for a hundred bucks. I returned it the next day. Would only blow the car off for like 3 seconds or so before it would start filling. And it took a while for the air to build back up. So Im also in the market for one

I know what you mean. went thru two 100 dollar compressers before I wised up and got the real deal. So did I really save any money? Now I also use mine for occasional nail gun use (and filling tires) but otherwise it stays stored under my RC work table.

I wont need to buy another one for a very long time. all the while putting a smile on my face everytime this little makita starts up.

How long can you clean with the makita before it needs a re-charge ?. Also how long do you have to wait for it to re-charge ?. Thanks.
