Craftsman air compressor allows seconds of tool use after tank is filled.
by Eric Davis
I have a craftsman 6 horsepower, 33 gallon air compressor. The tank holds air great with no other problems.
I noticed that when I use my air impact gun to break loose lug nuts the air gun would be good for about 5 seconds then I have to wait for 20 seconds before I could use it again.
The tank would still be full but no power to the air tools.
I purchased a new piston kit and replaced the piston thinking this would help the matter but it didn't.
I did noticed that the air line would fill up with air but when the air tool is used the air in the line is gone out then I have to wait again.
