Bosch CET3-10 3 Portable Air Compressors Product Reviews
People who bought this air compressor commented that it works well and liked the fact it has a 100% duty rating or “continuous duty” as one reviewer referred to it. It was noted that it could run all day without the pump getting too hot. Another factor that the reviewers of the Bosch CET3-10 portable air compressors remarked upon was its quick pump and recover y time. It was stated that you could “still sink nails even when the compressor is recycling, which is a plus, as some compressors won’t counter sink nails until it fully recovers. “ It has been used by the reviewers with a variety of nailers including Omer, Hitachi and Craftsman but was felt that it was best utilized for finish work rather than a regular component for framing.
On the flip side, although it’s design is geared towards better balance some reviewers of this product felt that it was awkward to move around and a bit heavy. It was said to be louder than other models listed of the same db range but still allowing you to carry on a conversation without shouting while it was running. Due to vibration while running one reviewer noted “Also, if you are working in and old house with loose floor boards, it vibrates and can increase the noise and the unit can walk on you; so you’ll need to put it on a stable, clean surface (not on a drop cloth or dusty floor, rubberized feet need to contact solid substrate).”
The Bosch CET3-10 was consistently praised for being able to get the job done. These portable air compressors are built to tackle many tough work environments and keep going strong.
