Hitachi EC119SA portable air compressors Product Reviews
Hitachi EC119SA Portable Air Compressors had mixed reviews by people who purchased this product. It was found by several commentators that the air compressor had difficulty starting in colder weather and could take several attempts. Also, attention to power requirements should be noted as several people who purchased this product mentioned blowing circuit breakers within the unit itself or house breakers. However, it did perform well in warm weather environments. Once started it was stated that it “it works great and provides ample air”. Reviewers of these portable air compressors put it to use doing projects ranging from filling tires, tool clean up, framing up homes and trim work.
Another point that came up frequently with purchasers was the oil levels fill requirements of the air compressor. It’s been noted that the level must be consistent with manufactures instructions. One reviewer of this product who had experienced issues with oil level documentation stated “After speaking with a customer service I found out the supplied oil is premeasured and ALL THE OIL SHOULD BE ADDED” It is also noted by this consumer that this air compressor should not “operate at more than 10 degrees angle” or “the oil will not get to the crank and the unit will seize”
Additionally, some reviewers of the Hitachi EC119SA portable air compressors remarked on the weight of the unit. At 65 pounds it was heavier and more difficult to transport but that was credited to the fact that it’s made with the liberal use of metal verses plastics.
Overall, the documented experiences that were researched for this review reveal that there were several negative issues noted by consumers that outweigh the positive aspects of the unit and so the Hitachi EC119SA portable air compressors would not rate a high recommendation.
