Makita MAC700 Portable Air Compressor Review

A slight variation on the topic comes to us with this hot dog air compressor from Makita. This electrically-powered compressor is also oil-lubricated thus requiring a bit more maintenance, but that also means an extended life expectancy and quieter operation. It is predominantly aimed toward home users and is perfect for DIY projects around the house. Pick this one if you want a compressor that will last a bit longer and if you don’t mind getting your hands dirty once in a while.

Features of Makita MAC700​

Makita MAC700

​Makita is a guarantee of quality, as it is well known already. You can expect it to last longer than many of its oil-free counterparts. It is also made to last. Materials used are cast iron, and all parts are welded on to the machine for sturdiness and stability. It weighs around 70 pounds, which is a bit on the heavy side, but that makes it stable while remaining easily transportable.

  • Quality construction – One thing you can rely on with Makita is the quality of their product. Only the best and the sturdiest materials were used and the manufacturing of this unit, from cast iron to rubberized feet that ensure less vibration and less noise.
  • Oiled-pump – Oiled-pump enables the compressor to dish out more at lower RPM. This means that the unit will be straining less to accommodate your needs. This also means that the unit will run more quietly than others in it performance range.
  • Maximum tank pressure 130 PSI – Maximum tank pressure is around 130 PSI and the pump will kick in when the pressure falls below 90. This machine can deliver 3.3 cubic feet per minute, which is enough to power up smaller tools.
  • 2.6-gallon tank – The tank size on this unit is a bit limiting, with others in its price range going up to 6 gallons. Keep in mind that you will be ill-advised to use it to power up large, industrial hand tools. For around the house use, it will be more than enough.

Advantages of Makita MAC700


  • Quiet operation – Since the compressor has an oiled pump, the level of noise is significantly lower than in other machines that perform roughly the same. The noise level is equivalent to that of a dishwasher, so it is definitely something that is manageable.
  • Fast recovery time – At the cut in point, when the pump starts operating again, the compressor needs under 20 seconds to get the tank to full capacity. This is an excellent recovery time, better than most oil-free compressors.
  • Great customer service – Makita has a top-notch customer service. If you happen to have any issues with the compressor give them a ring, they try to help you over the phone. Repairs are usually done within 72 hours.

Even though this is a portable unit, it is not the lightest one on the market. Thanks to the welded handle it is easy to grab, but still heavy to carry around. Your best move would be to invest in a small cart, which would make transporting this compressor a whole lot easier.

Bottom Line​

And here are a few final thoughts on Makita MAC700 Big Bore 2.0 HP Air Compressor. It is a great device to have around the house to power up your small tools or making inflating tires a whole lot easier. If you value longevity in the products you buy, you will love this compressor as Makita is a synonym for great design and durable equipment.​
