Things 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.
Things I liked:The convenience, noise, compactness, amd performance.
Things I would have changed:The price seems high for what is a relatively simple device. Can't really see why it costs 5x the price of a shop air compressor other the low demand. It needs a carry handle.
What others should know:You should install a filter/desiccator between your shop compressor and the Shoebox to ensure clean dry air for your PCP. You will need some basic mechanical skills/tools as you will need to disassemble the cylinders to replace worn o-rings periodically. The F8 comes with 6 complete sets replacement of o-rings. A set of snap ring pliers is required which not everyone has in their toolbox..
Things I liked:The size, performance and noise level are right for home use.
Things I would have changed:A carry handle would be nice. Mine arrived with some dings that didn't affect performance and they didn't bother me enough to return it. Package was OK so damage must have occurred at the factory. Price seems a bit high for a relatively simple divice.
What others should know:Fills my Benjamin 90ci take from 2k to 3k in about 25 minutes. My 20 gallon shop compressor only runs 1-2 times for the 2k-3k fill and is 10 times louder than the Shoebox. The Shoebox sounds alot like a sewing machine.
