Pretty darn good for home use

This little guy works great for my around the home use. I use it for cleaning pc cases, air brushing, and the occasional tire filling. The 3 gallons does not last that long but enough for me to work with. In more extended uses (heavy construcion projects) I recommend buying a larger tank, but even when psi drops in tank u just need to flip on the switch to fill up again (fills from empty to full in less than 3 minutes or so). This model is surprisingly not that loud despite what others might say. I have been around a few other small air compressors (small ones usually louder) that can sound like jack hammers or jet engines but I was surprised when I could still hold a fairly normal conversation with friends while charging up the air. I did alot of online browsing and store searching to find a cheap yet efficient air compressor for small projects, something small and preferably under $100. Kmart generously priced this baby for $60 which trust me is a steal for it's quality, efficiency, and accessories it came with. For simple project uses I highly recommend this model.

This compressor isn't strong enough to drive 2" 18 gauge nails. It's also VERY loud. I attempted to fix one piece of base molding, and couldn't get even one nail to penetrate the trim. The nail gun also jammed every time I attempted to drive a nail with it. I had this system for one hour, and had to put it back in the box before I smashed it with my framing hammer.

TNT Compressor/Nailer Combo

Hose to Nailer connection was leaking. I bought $3 piece to replace the existing connector which was missing special washer inside. Nailed some baseboards and worked perfect. The only complaint is too loud. But for the price it is a very good tool.

Great Buy For The Money!

I bought this unit for its portability and mainly for keeping proper tire pressures on my vehicles. I have a motorcycle and three cars, and this compressor works great on all of these. I looked at the Sears unit and the TNT unit, and they are the same, just a different name and paint scheme. K-Mart offered this unit for $10.00 less than the Sears unit and it came with a two year warranty, unlike the Sears unit which only has a one year warranty. Both units came with the same accessories. I would recommend this unit to anyone that needs an Air Compressor for LIGHT jobs. Great buy for the money!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Decent unit with a perk of a brad nailer

works great, is just a little slow; but it is small enough to handle. I've used the brad nailer and it works just fine on this unit. It's worth the sale price and now I have a nailer for trim work, putting together some bird houses, etc.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

open box with missing parts

the box was definitely re-closed with packing tape and parts were missing including air hose. I cant use it, so unable to comment on its working performance. K-Mart site did not mention it as open box or with missing parts. I may have to return it.

TNT suits me to a T

I recently bought a TNT Compressor and it works perfectly. It came with accessories and I just love it. I just used it to pump up my tires on my van and it took no time at all. I am sure that I will be using this item for many years to come and it will be very useful when I do some house restoration seeing as it came with some accessories. It is not too loud and works very well-efficient! The price was very reasonable also-got it on a good sale price.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

TNT 3 gal. air compressor w/2 in. Brad Nailer & 10 pc. Acc. kit

I received this compressor from my wife as a christmas gift, I read both books that came with it. I worked the unit as instructed and found it to be a great little compressor. As I drove a few brads into some 2x4's I found it had plenty of power to spare. I started out thinking about a craftsman compressor, but I am very happy with this unit. 12/25/2011

Overall for the price, it was an amazing with tools, etc.  I have used it several times and the only downside to this product is the built in storage for the accessories is too small to contain the accessories.

Great for the price paid

The compressor is great for what I wanted it for... inflating lawn equipment tires, cleaning parts, etc. It is a little slow charging up the tank and kind of noisy but still great for the price paid.

The brad nailer does its job just fine. Small tank on the compressor needs to recharge after 15-20 brads but this is not a problem.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

TNT compressor is a good bargain

We recently purchased the compressor in hopes that we could change some parts on the axle of one of our vehicles. As far as the preformance, it is decent. It's definitely not made for auto parts replacement, but it did serve it's purpose. As for the price, it is definitely a good deal, as long as it is used for smaller scaled projects.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Very nice suprise from this little guy.

I purchased one of these little Evolv 1/3hp, 3gal compressor with the nailer. It apparently had everything returned in the box. I purchased it for about 35% below retail($51). I got home read the instructions carefully, then plugged it in and "shot away". After 3-4 adjustements I shot a 2" brad through three  3 1/2" oak plywood peices. NO PROBLEM! It still had power to spare. I'm tickled to death so far!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

This 3 gal. Air Compressor is More Like a Firecracker than TNT

Okay, it's a small 3 gal. air compressor and it is not fair to compare it with the big boys. Still, I also have another Craftman 3 gal, compressor and I am happier with the performance of that one when they are compared. As noted in the pros, the TNT model is lighter and maintenance is easier as there is no oil levels to maintain. The problem it that it takes a  *v-e-r-y  l-o-n-g* for it to fill. The compressor with the oil fills faster.

But, if you would like a small compressor to fill up pool toys or to top off the pressure on the wheels of your car, tractor, snow blower, or, if you would like to finish that novel you started while waiting for it to fill - the TNT is a good choice. If you would like to drive power tools or airbrush, you would be better served by saving your pennies a bit longer and then buy something with a little more oomph.

As for recommending it, it really depends on what it is going to be used for. It is really not a bad unit but I like my other 3  pounder better - even though it is heavier and the oil levels have to be monitored .

I would recommend this product to a friend.
