Mastercraft Air Compressors


Mastercraft air compressors are the house brand of a nation-wide, Canadian company, that markets a broad range of homeowner and light industrial tools and equipment, all under the Mastercraft brand.

The basic brand - Mastercraft - is their name for their household type tools and equipment. If you are seeking equipment that's more industrially oriented, you would look for their Mastercraft Maximum line.

This page is a forum only for folks that own Mastercraft air compressors originally from Canadian Tire in Canada.

Like many (most?) big box stores, Canadian Tire does not manufacture their compressors themselves, but has companies around the world manufacture Mastercraft air compressors private labelled for them.

Canadian Tire big box style stores offers little, if anything, in after market compressor parts. If you have a problem with your Mastercraft air compressor and you have owned it long enough that it is out of warranty, good luck getting parts for it.

You can try contacting their customer service desk at this URL: http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/customer-service.html . Odds are good though that they will not be able to help in getting compressor parts. You might also try a store clerk where you purchased your Mastercraft compressor and ask if they send compressors out for rebuild under warranty to contact that company for parts. I suspect though that when a low-cost compressor comes back under warranty, they simply give you a new one and junk the returned compressor rather than trying to fix them.

Mastercraft air compressors are inexpensive


By and large Mastercraft air compressors are cheap. On sale, you can often purchase a new one for under $100. With a retail price at that level, there is nothing in that price that allows handling costs for shipping compressors out for repair, or stocking parts. Further, from one year to the next it might be a whole different company making the Mastercraft air compressors that year. Compressor shapes, sizes and capacities seem to change at whim, as Canadian Tire adapts compressors to meet the changing needs of the market.

When you have a problem with your Mastercraft air compressor this forum is a good place to try to find information and parts sources.
