Compressors equipped with a Big Bore™ piston, cast iron pump and heavy duty crankshaft deliver faster recovery time and higher CFMs for more efficient nailing and fastening. The Big Bore™ piston and cylinder are larger than those in standard compressors, so they compress more air on each stroke. The result is increased compressor efficiency, faster recovery, and lower RPM for reduced noise. [Learn More]
Compressors are workhorse tools on the job site, and Makita compressors are contractor favorites for their faster recovery time, lower noise, longer tool life, and consistent job site performance. The 5.5 HP Big Bore™ Gas Air Compressor (MAC5501G) has a powerful Honda GX160 4-stroke engine for increased performance and superior reliability, with a “V” Twin style pump that runs cooler and provides up to 12.5 CFM at 100 PSI for faster recovery. Cast iron pump with Big Bore™ cylinder and piston is engineered to provide durability and faster recovery time for improved performance. And Unlike other Gas Compressors, the gauges and couplers on the MAC5501G are built into the base of the motor and pump for additional protection and added durability.
