At what pressure is my Craftsman Model 919.167783  supposed to automatically shut off?

I got this unit for free.

The label states 175 psi MAX.

I am wondering at what pressure is it supposed to automatically shut off at?

I made sure there was no water in the tank, and fired it up. It ran nice and quiet and built good pressure. However, I began to panic when the pressure needle reached 150 psi, and I shut it off. Am I just being paranoid? Should I just let it run? I’m confused.

Free is a good price, and particularly, when the air compressor runs so well.

The approximate cut in pressure is 145 PSI and the approximate cut out pressure is 175 PSI, Mark.
