  • Does this allow you to use other air tools? Or does each brand have their own connectors? What about power, is 145L/m enough? New to all this!

    • Yea you can use the compressor with all air tools most air tools will tell you what specs you need. The coupling might be different depending on the tool but you can get adaptors or the right coupling to make it work.

    • +1

      145l/m is very low, for example, my pneumatic sander uses 500l/m. In short you can use it with any tool however it will be constantly refilling and wont generate much power. this has around 4cfm which is low. it will be a great dust blower.

      • Air sander is a high-usage tool, small amount of people would need IMO.

        • +2

          I think you've missed the point of my comment. It says its a 20L tank assuming thats each one, it will be constantly refilling and being this cheap will be very loud. If someone uses once a month, its a good pick up in true ozbargainer spirit. Anything beyond that, theyre better off with something else

    Hell of a deal, don't need it, but wanted a compressor, ordered, will check it out to see if I actually pick it up.

    This kit is made of at least $767 worth of tools:

    20m Hose - Can't find a 20m by Full Boar, searching for other ones shows at least $65, while the 10M Full Boar is $79 - https://www.bunnings.com.au/full-boar-10m-high-pressure-hose…

    • Yeah I agree. Have been wanting a compressor again for a while, that was enough for me to pull the trigger.

  • +1

    My local has all the full boar air tools on clearance as well. A few Paslode ones too.

    • A few Paslode ones too.

      I don't NEED a Paslode, but …

      Very tempting.

  • Was looking for an air compressor but see there are many new 'slient' ones that run at under 60dB. These do not specify and with the small tank will likely be running quiet a lot. Anyone tried one of these that knows how load they are?

    • +1

      Better off just purchasing then trying out the unit, if not satisfied just return it. Bunnings are fantastic with returns.

      • +2

        Bunnings are fantastic with returns.

        Depends on who you get. I had a bit of a shit fight when I tried to return a Ryobi blower after 5 mins of use determined it was no better than the lower model I already had. He kept saying no change of mind, it wasn't until I pushed back saying that it didn't work as advertised, ie better than the lower model, therefore it was not performing as expected than he finally relented.

        • I've only ever had to return something once to Bunnings and it was a Ryobi fabric spot cleaner. Box looked closed and everything. Got it home and opened it all up and realized it had been used before (front looked dirty and the small bottle of included "soap" was opened and only half-full). I live 5 mins away and was able to be back to the Bunnings within 20 minutes of the time shown on my receipt. Lady at the counter tried to imply that I had used it and was returning it. The thing is, I was asking for a replacement, not a refund, and I still copped grief from the front counter for it…

          Absolute pain.

          • @michaelkr1: The problem is that you do get a lot of shitbags that think they can use any store as a try and return, when that just makes the item 2nd hand.
            So they do need to be protective in general.
            Another common thing is to people to try and return/swap an item, and it's not the actual purchased item in the box…..

            Plus boxes & internal packaging torn, missing instructions, etc… I open every item like I am doing surgery, with precision. A, because I am just anal like that and I like clean cuts, plus I am mindful of being able to return things as though they look untouched so it's quite clear an item has been used with care.

    • No mention of sound levels in the manual I thought if it was dangerous loud they had to state that.

      • Most other air compressors state the sound level in Db. Knowing that some can be ridiculously loud and annoying especially when they need to turn on every few minutes, worth knowing.

      • +1

        It is a Direct drive compressor. Probably, very loud.

        • +1

          This. There’s no way to magically make them more quiet. You have to use a different type of compressor to achieve that (ie belts or multiple smaller pumps).

          • @Yekul: There are some direct drive compressors these days labelled as 'slient' which are below 60db

            • -1

              @jar-unit: 'slient'?

              • -1

                @Ulysses31: Not actually silent but much quieter than standard compressors which are over 75db+

                From what I understand generally under 60db will be marketed as 'silent' or 'quiet'

                • @jar-unit: is that the same as slient though?

                  • @AdModnar: Definitely not slient. Probably not silent. Can still hear the woosh

    • Recently I got the compressor from Aldi, the quiet one, it is amazingly quiet. Recommended.

  • Frack thats a good deal!! I

    Unfortunately, I just replaced my compressor as my old one died.

  • Thank you, I had rented a nail gun from Bunnings which ended up costing $100 with all the consumables.

    This seems like a steal plus all the other attachments you can use in the future!

  • No stock showing for me. Any stores near South west Vic have stock?

    Anyone comment on how overkill this is for use inflating/seating bike/motorbike tyres and for general light compressor use?

    Don't have one but been thinking about one for a while and I do froth a good ozbargain deal.

    • Wondering the same thing for car tyres.

    • Very overkill.
      You can pump tires up with a small electric inflator.

      Sure it wont be as fast but its fine.

      • They're asking about seating the tyre bead onto the rim.
        I thought seating a tyre takes a pressurized tank greater in volume (than the size of the tyre you're trying to seat) at a rapid rate.
        Correct me if I'm wrong please… I've never actually tried seating a tyre with a little hand held inflator. Maybe with a sealant or special grease?

    Slightly off topic but one of my favourite “fails” was “Married with Children” when Al decided to get rid of a gopher using dynamite. When Bud said “ isn’t that dangerous?”, Al replied “If dynamite was dangerous, do you think they'd sell it to an idiot like me?” Yup, he blew up his backyard and the gopher was still running around. Reminded me of Caddy Shack.

    In the kit description it says that the Pump Type is "Oil free Direct Drive".
    But if you have a look at the manual for the $498 (seems to be identical) compressor, it talks about changing out the oil.

    Does anyone with more knowledge than me have thoughts on this discrepancy?

  • There were 3 left at the front of the tools section in Gungahlin ACT, now there are two left. Thanks OP!

  • Thanks OP, bought one. Been looking for a cheap compressor for home use. Looks like there's a few left at Mernda and Mill Park, VIC.

  • Tks OP!

    Been meaning to get meself one of these for DIY work around the place. Been checking various ones out at this price point.

    Atleast this one comes with tools and hoses to boot.

  • Anyone have any experience with this compressor or these tools?

    I don't actually need either, but tempted to buy them!

  • Not available in WA for click and collect or delivery….

    • Just placed order for Rockingham. Also seems to available in Mandurah

    • +2

      I just got one from Midland - but am having serious second thoughts. It looked like a great deal but I really don't need it.

      • Many of us are keen to have it fired up and see exactly how loud it is, would be great to have that feedback.
        I have it ordered, but will not pick it up until I see some feedback here, or get a better idea on how good/dumb a move it was to jump on it.

        Like you, I don't need it, but I have wanted a compressor for a long while for the occasional use where it sucks to not have it.

        • Yeah - I should have said I bought one online from Midland and just got confirmation it is available for pick-up.
          I won't be able to get there until the weekend anyway, so we'll see if I go through with it.
          Of course, if a fellow Perthite makes it worth my while, I'd be happy to onsell it.

  • Thank you! it looks like a beast. I've been looking for one for a while so pulled the trigger. About to go pick it up now.

    • +1

      @TommyGun, are you able to report back on noise levels? im after a silent one!

    • Also interested in your opinion if you have a spare few min

    • Okay so.

      The compressor unit itself is pretty small, well at least smaller than I expected.Think of two fire extinguishers welded together with a motor next to them.

      • The whole thing has a footprint of a large microwave.
      • It is a bit heavy to constantly move around but it has a handle and you can pick it up with one hand without much struggle.
      • It's not quiet, but its not what I would call very loud. You don't have to wear ear protection but you and your neighbours will hear when its running.
      • The hose is seems very good quality and is long. The accessories seem fine but i haven't used them yet.
      • I bought a blow gun attachment and had a go. Totally fine, and the compressor will switch on after about 10 seconds of continuous use.

      Overall I think it's totally fine for your regular home garage use, although some of the air tools I saw at Bunnings say they require about 160 L/m so might be under powered for the bigger tools which i probably won't need anyway.

      • Are you getting any of this experience form other buyer? - https://www.ozbargain.com.au/comment/14537616/redir

        • +1

          It happened on the very first time, but there are a couple of pressure adjusters next to the house connector which were fully tightened, I made a quarter turn and it's working perfectly now, shutting off at ful pressure.

          • @TommyGun: Hey TommyGun, any info on how you managed to get this going? Cannot find any way to adjust the specific relief valve I have on the unit I bought.
            Does the one on your unit looks like this one?
            Probably going to bring back the unit back in today and hope for a replacement (also hope they will let me inspect it in store).

            • @stampella: Replaced the unit. Two remained in my local store and one had the same manufacture date, so I assumed/feared the same batch and opted for the other, a lovely '21 vintage (the unit I originally had was manufactured 11/22).
              Other than a damaged box and some oil spilled in the bag (was clearly put upside down/side at some point in its history), the replacement unit works as expected and needed no adjustments. That valve doesn't actually seem adjustable to me.
              Also, no swarfs in the air inlet and no signs of rust on the exterior of the tanks.

              Might have a slow leak, but I'm much happier to deal with that than any of the other problems.

              So…I clearly got a dud originally. Still, it's noisy for its output, but right now I'm ok with that.

  • Good enough for spray painting?

    • +5

      No, the tanks are only 10l, so you will empty that pretty quickly with spraying. It will have the pressure and volume out fo the gun, but the motor will be running non stop to try and catch up.


      A simple calculation is 1 CFM equals approximately 30 LPM. All references are also at 90psi unless stated.

      Tyre inflator - 1-2 CFM / 30-60 LPM
      Air blow gun - 1-2 CFM / 30-60 LPM
      Degreaser gun – 2 CFM / 60 LPM
      Air stapler / brad nail guns - 2-3.5 CFM / 60-100 LPM
      Air Ratchets, Air Hammers, Air Drills – 4 CFM / 114 LPM
      HVLP Paint spray guns – 4 CFM / 114LPM at 40psi
      Air Die Grinder – 5+ CFM / 150+ LPM
      1/2in Impact / Rattle gun - 5+ CFM / 150+ LPM
      Sand Blaster – 15+ CFM / 450 LPM at 150psi
      Air Palm Sander - 17 CFM / 500 LPM
      Air powered Grinder – 22 CFM / 650 LPM

      Small 1hp units / small capacity tank – Good for tyre inflation, short bursts of air through an air gun

      Medium 2 -2.5hp units / 40+ litre tank size – Will do the bulk of home / garage jobs but will run out of puff over continued use. Can handle spray painting for short periods of time

      Large 3+ hp units / 50+ litre tank size – Usually comes in a belt drive compressor configuration – Good for all air tools and longer periods of work / Spray painting.

    • Should handle an Airbrush ok.

  • thanks, good deal

    Wasn't looking for an air-compressor kit, but bought one "just in case".

    This post doesn't help inflation…

    • hopefully not deflationary

    • +3

      Yo dawg, we heard you like inflation so we bought you this discount air compressor to inflate yo' currency while you inflate yo' tyres.

  • +1

    If it says out of stock at your store, call them up. I just called up my local to see if they could get it in from another store and apparently they have 5 in "top stock" which apparently doesn't show up in stock, and I can pick it up tomorrow

  • +1

    Does anyone have any suggested air tools to use with this?

  • -1

    None at Bankstown

  • Yeah, I also managed to find stock at stores that were showing 0 on floor but had units in top stock. Definitely worth calling around

  • Would this be suitable for automotive painting?

    • +1

      No, this question has already been answered, look at prior reply for detail as to why.
      You are going to want a unit with about 100L capacity from what I have seen.

    • +5


      The above video features a compressor with similar specs. This is the absolute minimum you could get away with and it involves using the right gun with a small tip and leaning into professional experience to compensate for the undersized compressor. This means you're working on a car in sections, having to pause occasionally, and getting worse atomization. Some paints (particularly clear coats) apply worse than others under these conditions.

      Now you can still get good results, especially if you're using black paints, working in low humidity, and are willing to thoroughly wet sand/polish the paint afterward; People are able to get decent results with rattle cans with the right products/techniques after all. However you'd probably be much better off just hiring a better compressor from bunnings or elsewhere.

      • Thanks for the detailed answer, appreciated!

      • Thanks for posting that.
        That is a 6 gallon tank, which is 22.7L. This deal is for twin 10L tanks, they do not look to be connected, so you're getting less than half the capacity of what is used in that video.

        • Ah good spotting, my bad

          • @TrulyUnicorn: I am probably wrong though, although not connected to each other, they will both be providing pressure, so it's should still be effectively 20L capacity.

    • +1

      Not even close.. try this what I use for painting


  • +3

    The compressor is as loud as you'd expect for a direct drive model (90+ db likely).
    It is not oil-free (good…well, depending on who you ask and what you need to do with it) and yeah, is a small-ish unit.

    I'm fine with loudness and middling air supply rate/tank size. What I'm not fine with is the 10 bar safety valve fitted on a 10 bar compressor, which means that it will reach 10 bar, the valve will open to close down at 8 bar and the motor will basically never turn off.
    Also, the tank has a spot with raised/bubbled paint (likely rust underneath) and the thread of the air filter had plenty of metal shavings; I cleaned as much as I could, but I wonder what's inside that poor cylinder and inside the tanks themselves.
    I might be expecting too much, but after all, this should be a ~$500 small-sized compressor…I wonder what's the price proposition for this unit at full price.

    Can any other user that picked this up check if it's the same with their unit?

    • Thanks, this is pushing me in the direction of cancelling my order.

    • Hi Stampella, thanks for your insights here.
      So just to clarify, if you turn it all on and then don't actually use a device (nail gun, tyre pump, whatever), the unit just operates constantly as it fluctuates between 8 and 10 bar. Is that correct?

      • +1

        That is correct. Motor never shuts down.

        The valve appears to open exactly at 10 bar and I have no idea what the set pressure on the pressure switch is.
        On the manual for this compressor page 13 states: "Note: The compressor will automatically cut off when the tank pressure reaches 8bar and
        will automatically start up again when the tank pressure drops to 6bar."
        This is of course not happening and the reason why I wanted this compressor is the 10 bar max pressure (I already had a small 8 bar one).
        That note is against the rest of the manual stating 10 bar operation.

        Found the same on a review of another Full Boar compressor so it appears they must have someone designing this stuff who really knows what he/she's doing.

        I could fix this problem in 5 seconds voiding the warranty and assuming full liability in case of failure…I am not tempted to do so though, given the other signs of poor workmanship on the unit.
        I will contact Full Boar first to understand what's their take on a 10 bar compressor that can't reach 10 bars.

        • Many thanks Stampella.
          If you have the time, it would be great if you could post what Full Boar say - thanking you in advance for this :-)

          Out of curiosity, what is the 5-second fix (that you aren't doing)?

          • +1

            @clintdb: 155/160 psi (~11 bar) PRV should fix this while guaranteeing that a healthy tank rated for 10 bar continuous use will not fail due to overpressure (unless the PRV failed closed with a pressure switch that also failed closed).
            I have no idea at what pressure the pressure switch operates, so it might also require adjusting it to bring it to 10 bar max.

            Both can be done in 5 mins and, realistically, this is how the thing should have come out from the factory. Both would invalidate the warranty, plus the PRV exchange would cost me a new PRV, so I really hope that Full Boar will stand to fix what effectively is, at this stage, misleading advertisement and a really piss poor quality display.

        • I adjusted mine to stop at 120 PSI

  • I just bought this UNIMAC 50L air compressor this week (10% off takes it down to $255 delivered).

    More specs for the unit here: https://www.edisons.com.au/unimac-portable-electric-air-comp…

    Not sure how this compares to the one in the post, but might be another option for some of you.

    • How loud is it? Can you please measure with phone or sound meter for actual db result?

      • @snuke Will be loud too. The models you are looking for have motors looking like this one and usually have ratings in the low 60 DBs.

        I have one (20l, 8 bar max, unrated and terribly low supply rate) and is certainly an incredible difference noise-wise, but can tell you that it fairly quickly became somewhat noisier (and I've seen the same reported in other reviews, like in a review here https://www.bunnings.com.au/aeg-60l-3-0hp-silenced-air-compr…).

        Also, I can't trust something like that to run for a very long time, so you need multiple units paralleled (as you can see on some bigger "silent" compressors).

        In my experience, the chart tracking noise vs output vs reliability at consumer prices can only be reached with belt-driven compressors. Those are not silent by any means but are heaps better than direct-driven ones.

        • Thanks, I fully expected that one to be noisy as hell too. They also do other models marked as "silent" and provide actual db ratings.

          Given your further info above, I think it's pretty clear I will cancel this one and maybe do noting, maybe wait until the Chicago ones are on special at Sydney Tools and lose no sleep if they are never on special, and never get one.

          I am likely to go several months with never touching it, so oil free, "silent" and lower price is where it should be.
