Makita MAC5200 Air Compressor Reviews

This air compressor is great for job sites. It’s completely steel construction makes it durable for any job site. At the same time, the machine is quiet enough to use indoors or in a shop. The machine lives up to its specs, handling any tool rated at 4.2 cfm or lower. An air ratchet rated at 4.5 will work, but just barely. You do have to watch the cfm ratings on the tools you want to use with this compressor. However, for nailers, blow guns, finishing nailers and brad nailers, you cannot go wrong with this compressor.

This air compressor is rather heavy for being portable. That is due to its steel construction, so you have to pay the price for the sturdiness of it, but watch out for the buying process. These are only good compressors if you get one that works! Several people have had problems ordering this compressor only to find it is damaged or not working when it arrives. Overall, however, once you get the compressor it lives up to its standards. Even the weight of it is not too much of an issue since it has a folding handle and wheels to maneuver it from site to site. Overall, the Makita MAC5200 is a worthy compressor to purchase.
