Great compressor! Great compressor! No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

I recently bought my Bostitch Trim Air compressor. from for $80.30 and UPS delivered it in a couple of days. There was no damage to either the factory packaging, nor the compressor. I am real impress so far.


  • Light weight., It is easy lug it around when I need to nail up some cabinets or trim.
  • Powerful enough to run my finish and brad nailers. I have not tried it with a framing nailer yet.
  • Noise level. At 75 db, the Bostitch I think its quietest in its class.


I have not found not so far.

For what pay for it, its a great compressor and it get the job done.

You got that for eighty bucks????


For lots of woodworkers, I could see it being a great compressor even if it didn’t like powering a framing nailer. I’m guessing that pin and brad are what most of us use, most of the time, anyway.

One thing, though, Charles: you forgot to mention how darned cute it is, too :-)

Nice tool. Nice write-up.

Nice review, I’ve been looking for a nice compressor. Too bad about the price hike.
