Hitachi EC12 14.5 Amp 2HP 4-Gallon Oiled Twin Hot Dog Compressor

Hitachi EC12 Summary

Hitachi: Japanese for good deal

Product Description

The Hitachi EC12 is another great portable air compressor offering from a company known for good products at low prices. The EC12 is perfect for staplers, nailers, and more but not well suited for painting. Beware that with oil-lubricated compressor pumps you will want to add an oil/water filter to keep your tools safe from moisture and oil. The intake filter and thermal guard adds additional value and helps keep your compressor running like the Energizer bunny without adding a bunch of additional cost to the unit.

EC12 Features

  • 1-year warranty
  • requires oil and light maintenance
  • 4 gallon air tank
  • robust motor with quick recovery times
  • consistent airflow
  • built to last
  • Hitachi quality engineering and construction

My Recommendation

Hitachi is a trusted tool maker and has provided yet another solid compressor with the EC12. It packs a lot of power and versatility into a compact package. If you’ve had problems in the past with tripping your circuit breakers the EC12 has built-in protection against overloads. For home use and light job site work you can count on the Hitachi EC12 to keep up with you throughout your work day and without interruptions and downtime.  If you don’t grab an EC12 now you’ll regret it when Sears won’t honor the warranty on your Craftsmen compressor so snag one now.
