Makita MAC700 Big Bore 2.0 HP Air Compressor Review
There’s nothing better than taking care of common mechanical tasks with a pneumatic tool; instead of using old fashioned wrenches and drivers. In fact, if you’re like us, you would probably agree that anyone who works with tools needs to have a dependable air compressor in their shop or garage. And if you’ve been thinking about investing in a compressor, but don’t want to go overboard, you can still get plenty of power for at-home mechanical work and projects, with the Makita MAC700 Big Bore 2.0 HP Air Compressor.
There are lots of rinky-dink air compressors available these days, but most of these smaller models are simply not built to last. If you look at some of the cheaper models, you’ll find that many of them are made mostly of plastic, and simply lack the durability you’d expect from an air compressor. And that’s what makes the Makita MAC700 Big Bore 2.0 HP Air Compressor such a breath of fresh air. This air compressor is built just like the big, commercial grade compressors that you might see at the local auto workshop. The pump is made of cast iron, and designed to last for years of ongoing, regular use.
But just because the Makita MAC700 Big Bore 2.0 HP Air Compressor is built to provide serious air compression – just like the commercial models – that doesn’t mean that you should have to put up with excessive noise levels. The Makita MAC700 Big Bore 2.0 HP Air Compressor is built to run quieter than most air compressors. And while it’s not what you’d call “whisper-quiet” it is significantly quieter than most other air compressors of comparable power.
