    It's only 11 miles to their warehouse from here, if it's still on after Christmas I'll have a punt.

    Very tempted, I'm always worried about getting an asbo when my compressors are running.

    its a funny thing about noise levels, my wolf dakota compressor seems to be quieter than my previous direct drive compressor, but the istructions says that the dakota compressor has a slightly higher noise level in decibels, I guessing it seems to be quieter is because the tone is lower on the belt drive compressor than the direct drive ones

    I came across the same thing with the dB numbers which originally put me off as I already had a 50l direct drive comp which number wise is quiter but still deafening. A member on here mentioned in a you tube review about its noise level being much less compared to a small direct drive his replaced so I bit the bullet, glad I did, night and day different

    Good stuff. Supposed to be good for the money. I saw the deal a couple of weeks back but my wife didn't order until Thursday so didn't want to miss out. Compressor was delivered today so good service too.

    Oh well, I couldnt resist. Bought one to tide me over until I get my 32amp wired up. It will make a nice wee nail gun compressor for doing up the house.

    Tried to order one yesterday but BT had managed to disable the internet locally for 24 hours. When I looked this morning they were out of stock but then found that Amazon had them for £215.93 with free shipping.

    Still from UKHS.tv though, another website Mano Mano sells them but they are from the same source.

    Got mine out of the box. Doesn't come with an electrical plug and does come full of oil. Will connect straight into the socket in the dome end. It is 1/2bsp and need a 10mm Allen key to take out. Loctite 545 is suitable for breathing air and works a treat sealing threads.

    Can I ask why you are not connecting using the regulator supplied? I need to find myself a hose and some tools and couplings now. Thanks for the info
