Excellent compressor
Hitachi has a winner in the Ec99s. This compressor is fast and quiet. It doesn't trip breakers even when both my 12" miter saw and it are running at the same time, but the most impressive thing is noise level or lack thereof.

I own another well known dark green compressor that is sold as a 60 DB quiet compressor. Using a DB meter app standing next to both compressors the quiet compressor measured 68db while the Hitachi measured 70db.

Hitachi really missed the boat by not touting this compressors quietness.

I'm super impressed with everything about it.

Keeps up with everything I give it!
This compressor is absolutely great! Last two compressors wouldn't keep up then blow thermo breaker. That gets old! I run two nail guns framing no problem with this one. Also kept up with two roof nailers . It's also lighter than any other compressor I've had . For the price in comparison about $70 cheaper than others I was looking at at the time of purchasing. I can't find anything bad to say about this unit at all

Great little compressor
Does everything I want it to. Even though it is heavy that indicates the quality of the compressor. It would be nice if rollers could be attached somehow.

Excellent Reliability
Impressed with it's overall quality and reliability. Quick recovery, holds pressure, and very transportable. Excellent compressor to support one or two carpenters.

Used once so far.
I have used this compressor only once, but it is not bulky which makes it easy to carry. The instruction manual is well written and easy to understand. It was also convenient that it came with enough oil for the initial startup which meant no extra trip to a store. I can't judge durability and performance on one use, therefore I choose the middle rating.

Good Compressor
I do not Like at all the Oil dip stick - Very hard to see the oil level , when you pull the plastic dipstick up it has to be tilted to miss another compressor Part . looks like a one size fits all Dip stick - Very poor design in my opinion! this is why the average Rating .

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
