Help stop My Craftsman 3 Gal. Compressor from walking

3 Gallon Craftsman Compressor

3 Gallon Craftsman Compressor

I have a 3 Gallon Craftsman Compressor that likes to walk on the concrete garage floor when running. It has four hard rubber padded feet that came with it. It can only go so far due to the power cord, but its a little annoying. Wondering if those 4 x 4 Vibration Pads will do any good?


Thank you

grating

YES!

I don't have that problem, but I'd guess the grated drawer liner (E.G. from Harbor Freight) might work.

I solved the problem. My dad had some old industrial rubber grating (kind with holes or perforations). I cut a narrow piece from the overall square piece. Now it does not move at all. I realize not everyone will access to heavy duty rubber grating pieces however, but it worked :-)

Same here

I have the same issue. Thinking about putting a softer vibration foot under the existing feet, so that the pad has enough give to take the vibration without scooting across the floor. Otherwise, this is a great little compressor so far.

Pads

Probably. But there's nothing stopping you from trying them.

Maybe if you made a wood thing kinda like a pallet and put it on that? (I'm thinking more surface area on the floor might be enough to stop it.)

Floor is level with your standard smooth trowel concrete tract house finish. Wondering if those vibration pads would still move around since it is not exactly a heavy weight.
Thanks.

Maybe...

But is the floor level with all four solid on the ground?

I'd probably use a small chain to hold it if all else fails.
