It does require oil for running as its not oil-less. There’s an oil sight gauge on the side of the pump. You should keep the oil level in the center of the red dot all the time.

If your air compressor won’t start in cold weather, you should try to use special oil which rated for low temperature.

Customer Review:
Assembly was a little bit of a pain because it has hex screws which screwed into a bushing mounted in the handle. If you look back there you can see the bushing. The bushings were loose so I had to get behind that area with the pliers to hold them down. These screw threads are really tight.

I recommend you screw them into the handle before it’s managed to get the threads loosened up. Also put some oil on the handle screws before you screw the handle on.

Overall it looks to be well made I’m hoping it’ll last a long.
