Bad Pressure switch and motor stalls
Bought this morning, managed to get it together easily enough. Ran to expected 140psi. But as soon as it switches off, the pressure switch leaks faster than an airgun and when it hits 100psi, the motors attempt to runm but stall and wont get enough current to start until the tank is less than 20psi. Now its up to me to spend the 2 hour round trip to return a product that should never have left the factory.

Does exactly what it says it does
Bought the 50L model a year and a half back, still works like new. Ive bought many compressors in my day and none have lasted this long for the work we do.

Excellent quality unit
I recently purchased the AEG 60 litre 3hp air compressor, initial thoughts its packaged well upon opening the unit you'll find 4 airfilters these need to be screwed into each unit, the bolts for the handle, the wheels and bolts for the wheels, the rubber vibration mounts for the front leg these are tapped into section of the foam packaging assembly only took 5 - 10 minutes it is heavy 76 kg so probably best to get assistance to put wheels on and vibration mounts under the front leg, I plugged it in and turned it on with my decibel meter I was ...reading 74 DB at 1.5 meters it is very quite compared to my old belt drive machine which use to reach about 100db. It took 2 minutes 30 seconds from cold start up to fill the tank and shut down which I thought was fairly quick, the build quality appears to be top notch I went over the unit after testing it, nothing was loose the tyres appear to be filled with hard rubber compound so no more flat tyres it runs my 3/4 rattle gun, 250 litre sandblasting cabinet and other various air tools with no problem at all, I have no hesitation in recommending this unit for any serious diy people or small workshop. I started it up 6am filled tank went back about 7.30 pm and hadn't lost any pressure, while I was in workshop I never heard it cycle once during the day so holds air well.
