By Ed Robbert from USA on 2013-12-08 13:52:36Things I liked:The Freedom8 works as advertised and so far it works very well.
Things I would have changed:Well, I guess it would be the high price however, I expect that production costs for low volume highly specialized items like high pressure compressors for air guns might have high production cost which would drive up the cost for the end user. Where else are you going to buy one? Anyway, other than the price I wouldn't change a thing.
What others should know:Just follow directions provided by the manufacturer. For quicker refills try to keep the pressure in your air gun tank above 2000 psi before refilling and with the larger 4500 PSI carbon fiber refill tanks keep the pressure above 3000 PSI. Both tanks fill much quicker when refilling from 2/3 full rather than empty. Filling from empty is agonizingly slow. If you have problems give the folks that make the Freedom8 or Pyramyd a call. Both are very helpful and their advice can save you a lot of time and trouble.

By Robert from USA on 2014-11-22 13:00:17Things I liked:It does the job. The manual has everything you need to know.
Things I would have changed:I would write the manual a little more clearly and step wise. I would put a lever handle of some kind on the pressure relief knob. Maybe a slide through like on a vise. I would certainly put an decent output pressure gage on a unit that costs this much. I would make it a little easier to change the pressure settings, and more clearly delineated. I would ship it set closer to its rated pressure. I am getting 4100 PSI fills according to the gage on my fill bottle.
What others should know:It can be difficult to release pressure, and because its difficult its slow. If the check valve on your tank or gun counts on internal pressure for the best seal this means you will waste some of your fill each time until you can get relief valve open far enough.
