Things I liked:1. No more trips to the local scuba shop or paintball range to fill my tank!!!! As the name implies "FREEDOM"!!! I have the Air Venturi 90 Cu. In. tank (PA SKU PY-A-4708. The tank handles 4500 PSI yet the scuba shop only goes up to ~3300 and the paintball shop only goes up to ~3000. Thus, I had to make a lot of trips (my Hatsan AT-44-10 Long QE in .25 cal.)is an air hog. The scuba shop was a two hour round trip through the Austin, TX traffic and the paintball place was only open on weekends. 2. The Shoebox filled my Air Venturi from 3000 (the lowest I like to go) to 4500 psi in exactly 30 minutes (I timed it).
Things I would have changed:For over $1100 the Shoebox company could have at least supplied some white lithium grease. Not a show stopper since there is a plethora of places you can buy it but just really the only thing. I was like "really? Not even a little packet of grease?".
What others should know:Yes, the price is on the high end, but if you HATE the drive to the local scuba or paintball shop for a fill then get this compressor. Split the cost with a air gun buddy or something if you have to. Never again will I have to rely on an outside refill source, never.
Things I liked:I just got this thing today and from out of the box to filling a tank was 10min! Fills a tank ( the 90 I got ) in about a hour I guess from 3000 to 4500. It dose sound like a sewing machine ( ha ). Best of all no more going to get my tank filled!!!!!!!!!
Things I would have changed:Lower cost of corse. But I am sure it will pay for it self in time. If you have to keep having to take the cover off to live it every 2-3 hours send the Allen wrench. I would also put some slots on the cover( and I will myself) so you do not have to take the screws out all the way. For that fact why now a thumb screw you do not need tools?
What others should know:It is slow!!!! With that said I baby mine for the first charge. It kicked off at 4000. No problem cause the instructions tell you to turn a screw in one turn on the regulator. Got it to 4500! I was not really sure what it can with and what else I would need so I will line it out for everyone. It dose come with the air fitting for the "in" side you need to install your self ( 30 secs to do). It dose come with the foster connection for the out. You need a compressor that will do 125psi and a hose to got to your tank or gun.
Things 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.
