Hoping to order this compressor soon but having a hard time finding a lot of reviews on it. I know it doesn't have a tank. Anyone who has it can please share their experience. Thanks

I don't like tankless compressors . They are low pressure and I don't think they perform as good as one with a tank . Unless it's very cheap invest in one with a tank . And if your thinking about getting any air tools get a compressor that will cover all your bases .

I have a tankless grex compressor and I love it. It's super quiet and so long as you have the wherewithal to attach a good length of hose - before - the pressure regulator to act as a little tank you're smiling. Mine delivers pressure up to nearly sixty pounds. Won't run an air tool mind you but I rarely need pneumatic hammers in my modelling nook

You never know when you might want to redo the modeling room ?

I love my Smart Jet Plus - not much more money than the Pro and has just enough of a tank in the handle (.45l) to smooth out any pulsing. Very nice little unit.

I have the smart jet lite and it provides more than enough pressure. Its fairly quiet too.
