  • What buyers say about Makita MAC5200 3.0 HP Big Bore Air Compressor

    After 30 days, I'm very happy with the quality of this compressor, it's sturdy, and it arrived within 3 business days of my order.

    I wanted to use a 3/8" hose and fitting as recommended by the manual, so I swapped one of the quick connects out for a 3/8" female with a 1/4" male thread.

    The new Makita is really nice, it's operation, quietness, design and compactness are all great.

    When it freezes, they leave enough water in the line to cause it to crack. This Makita MAC5200 does the job and saves me $100 every year.

    The compressor I have had for almost a decade has been reliable, and it has not had a single leak, failure, or issue since the wheels that affected older compressors were fixed.

    Common Questions


    Does it cycle running a 1/2 inch impact wrench because of the small tank?


    I've used it for my flapper die grinder, doing a bit of wheel sanding on edges, but keeps up the pressure very well, quick recovery time.


    Is it possible to change the female air couplings out for high flow couplings or are they not removeable?


    Yes. The compressor manifolds have two 1/4" female NPT connections, and this was very easy to replace.


    Is it manufactured in China or Taiwan?


    The rear of the machine, it says, was made in taiwan.


    Has anyone used this compressor with a plasma cutter?


    I use it with an Eastwood 40 cutter rated 5-7 CFM at 20-60 PSI and it works well. I haven't cut for lengthy periods(short cuts only,) the compressor runs a lot but it works.


    I want to see if I can attach my hose reel with a U-bolt. What is the diameter of the frame tubing?


    I measured 1.4” on a nub and think it's accurate.
