The Makita ACOO1 weighs in at about 27.4 pounds and with a 1 -gallon gas tank, it is clearly a light duty compressor for the indoor uses. The whole compressor measures about 14x15x15 inches. This one is made for home usage.


The Makita ACOO1 is built with the sole purpose of delivering a sucker punch. It has a very powerful 1/6 horsepower output from its induction motor, delivering up to 125 PSI of compressed air. This competes favourably with its fellow from Makita, the Makita MAC5200 which delivers 140 PSI but weighs 100 pounds and has a 5.2 gallon air tank.

Tripping of circuit breakers and startups can be annoying when you plug in your compressor to the mains. The Makita AC001 draws a small amount of current so you have smooth running operations.

The compressor has the ‘roll cage’ construction which covers the motor and pump assemblies from impacts.

Pump Type

This pump uses an oil less pump which is very basic. It is very good for you who does not have good mechanical skills as the pump requires no maintenance at all. Even if I did require the good mechanical skills, the best option would be to throw it away and buy a new one.

Noise Level

Having a noise level of 72 dBA, it is 22 decibels less noisy as compared to the Makita MAC5200. The slow moving parts lower these noise levels.
