I bought a second Bostitch compressor!
This is an easy to carry model. I bought a second compressor for my daughter who's compressor broke recently. The price was too good to pass up.

Well worth the $
Out of the box every thing worked. Yes the air pressure knob appeared to be stuck but following other reviewers comments I found it needed just a LITTLE extra force to get it lose. Now hand pressure is sufficient to adjust the airline pressure. Both air hook-ups at first appeared inoperable because they didn't grab. I though that I would have to rework them but a little patience while experimenting with air hoses resulted in gaining the knack required to hook-up air hoses. I own several homes so this compressor gets a work out. It has enough capacity to run a tools without frequently turning on & off. It is very portable, so I no longer have to wrestle my main compressor to and from sites. Both gauges work well. Even though this is a reconditioned unit it appears to be brand new. So, yes, I am completely happy/satisfied with this purchase.

Great compressor
This compressor replaced a 3 gallon one. The 3 gallon just didn't have enough air reserve to do much. The duty cycle came on more often than not.

This Bostitch 6 gal seems to have the right air reserve with 6 gallon. It is also easy to move around. The included air hose is a little chincy IMO, but I have several good rubber ones, so it is of no concern.

Great little investment.
Handy little portable that paid for itself in one or two jobs around the farm. I have run a nail gun and a stapler off this compressor at the same time and it did well. Handles an impact wrench good. Pumping tires no problem at all. My only complaints are that it is a bit loud and it loses pressure when left overnight. All things considered it is well worth the money.

2 refurbs in a row were duds!
Purchased refurb at really good price. First one received in 3 days. Would not get past 90 psi. Called customer service, then emailed and got RMA for an exchange. Second one arrived in 2 days. It was a complete dud. It did not even attempt to start. Of note regarding the second one: there was evidence that the tank had been re-welded and painted at the seam (rough spot at the seam and yellow overspray on one of the legs of the compressor). Labels were also faded and one appeared to have been taped back on. Hardly what I'd call "like new" or "as good as new." I bought this compressor because of the Bostitch name in other tools. I would suggest that you avoid this product if you are considering a refurb. I would suggest that you read as many reviews as possible before even buying this product new. This is my second review of this item as the first one apparently did not make it.

Great product at a great price!
I am a retired contractor and have used many different brands of portable compressors in this size and class over the past 35 years. My last unit was the Bostitch 6 gal steel unit. This was a very good compressor, however, at age 69, I needed something lighter to use. This unit fills the bill perfectly.

can this compressor run -16 scfm @90 psi
burrrent on Apr 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, this product delivers 2.6 SCFM at 90 PSI.
I have this 6 gallon compressor and am thinking of using air to spray my wood projects ( furniture etc. ) with the polyurethane finish I use. In doing some preliminary research, I seem to get the impression that a 6 gallon compressor is not big enough. Please advise.

BEST ANSWER: While not ideal, it will do the job ok. It may take continuous resupply, and the motor is designed to run continuously, though it will probably wear out faster doing that. If you do it in short bursts, it will will be loud, but will work. For that job, a bigger tank would probably be the better bet.

dpar on Sep 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, the BTFP02011 does 3.7 SCFM at 40psi
Bought it today. My first compressor like this. Followed the instructions and started up. Got the pressure up to where I wanted it and shut it off. Now it sounds like it's hissing n leaking around the release valve. Is this normal?

Anyone ever had issues with it not filling up (no pressure) when running. Mine is a few years old now, and has been in storage in our garage. Last time I turned it on, it ran, but no pressure built up and no leaks are heard...
IT has some pressure in tank (can pull relief valve and it hisses), but is weakly filling and not gaining any pressure...
Since it is oil-less, wondered if this is the issue?

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.
