Take that compressor back! It's an absolute piece of crap. I had one. First off it has to be the noisiest compressor I've ever seen pr owned. Secondly, it will kill the cold start valve. It's a known defect. Call tech support and they'll tell you that you can buy them on Ebay. Third, it eats reed valves like they're going out of style. I dumped mine after replacing the reed valves four times in a year. Another known defect when you call tech support. They'll tell you that you can get those on Ebay as well.

Bought this one: https://www.harborfreight.com/29-gal...sor-61489.html

Yes, it's more expensive, but well worth money. I've had it over a year. I've got around 30 hours on it (it has a Hobbs meter) with zero trouble.

Dump the one you bought and pony up for the one I bought. You won't be sorry.

I modified my valve.

So far 5 years...

Itís definitely a sketchy compressor.

Your cold start valve or your reed valves? After I replaced the POS cold start valve with a good one I never had another problem with that. The reed valves? Ridiculous.

The cold start valve. I never had a problem with the reeds.

I did have an issue with the line pressure valve, but it fixed itself.

For me, I should had purchased the Dewalt.

Thanks for the heads-up guys but this compressor will be very light duty in my garage. I really only bought it for zipping off my lug nuts and axle nuts. I certainly don't expect a $147 compressor to be used as device operating all day long and last.

Let's face it, no one goes to Harbor Freight expecting to buy the best tools possible. I guess the old saying applies here, you get what you pay for.

Dynavin N7 vs Avin Avant 4 ....???

I am torn between the two. Comparable in price and functionality.

I am going to take advantage of the cyber deals today. Anybody have input on these 2 systems?

It is my understanding that the Avin with its Android operating system is more flexible and open to more customization than the Dynavin. Also, I don't think the Dynavin will give you OBC info where the Avin with the Ibus dongle and app will.

I have the Avant-4 and love it. I do not have any knowledge of the Dynavin N7 Pro but keep in mind, if you go the Dynavin route, it is a closed operating system so you will not be able to add any apps for personalization or customization.

Depending on the options you choose, I still think the Avin will come in under the Dynavin in cost.

I have the Avin as well. I love mine too. The support is also decent.
