Makita’s model of MAC2400 Big Bore 2.5 HP air compressor is a new favorite with customers. The MAC 2400 model is expected to outshine its rivals with features like a robust system of Intake Air Filter along with a lower rating of 1720 RPM and the virtually noiseless motor that needs only 12.3 amps to function.  To do away with the condensation residue in the tank, this model has a ball valve drain system that operates with a lever. In addition to that it offers 4.2CFM @ 90PSI.

Durability with superior quality and trusted operation is the reason Makita2400 is getting all the attention. The purchase includes 1/4-inch universal quick coupler and oil.
