      • Makita MAC2400 = EXCELLENT Compressor!
      • January 17, 2012
      • Verified Purchase & Recommended Product

      The Makita MAC2400 is the second air compressor I have owned in the last ten years. The first one was a Craftsman maintenance free / oil free compressor of which I bought without conducting any research. Although the compressor did what I needed it to do, it was very LOUD! Also, there were just some minor issues I had with it over time which would keep me from purchasing another. However, this time I decided to perform some significant research before my next air compressor purchase. Out of all the air compressors out there, I had narrowed my search down to the Makita MAC2400. The reviews I received, both online and in person were outstanding for the Makita MAC2400. It seemed as though it would fit my needs the best. Keep in mind, an air compressor is nothing more than a tool. What may be great for me, may not be so great for you. It all depends on what type of projects you intend to use it for. If you intend to run a die grinder or some other tool which would require a great deal of air, this may not be a good choice. The most important factor to consider when buying an air compressor is the PSI and CFM ratings, not necessarily the tank size. After using the Makita MAC2400 almost daily for the last couple of weeks, I cannot say enough good things about this compressor! It is an EXCELLENT compressor and has performed everything I have needed it to do without the least bit of trouble. Also, this compressor is VERY QUIET compared to the maintenance free models out there, including my old Craftsman. I would have no problem firing the Makita up in my garage at 3AM if I needed to. It is seriously that quiet. I would not disturb any of my neighbors. In fact, this compressor is even quieter than some of the more expensive two-stage compressors I have seen & heard. I would DEFINATELY recommend the Makita MAC2400 to anyone who is looking for a very dependable, well built, quiet and reliable air compressor. This compressor is great for airing up tires, balls, rafts, running 1/2 inch impact drivers to bust loose lug nuts to rotate or change tires, running air ratchet drivers, cleaning areas with an air gun, operating two (2) 90 P.S.I. nail guns at the same time...of which I did for two days straight...no problems whatsoever! For the money, this is truly an excellent machine and I don't think you could ever possibly go wrong with the Makita MAC2400. Good luck and I hope this review was helpful to you!
