rating 5 out of 5


Arebos 50L

Editor’s note: 5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

vertical compressor arebos 50lPerfectly equipped with its 13 accessories included! The Arebos 50L has been designed to be able to meet most expectations, whether in the garage, workshop or even for hobby use. This versatility is guaranteed by the numerous valves supplied which allow, among other things, to inflate bicycle tires, balls, air mattresses and which can also be used for swimming pools and boats. Thanks to the inflation indicator with pressure gauge, the pressure is always perfect, while the Y-shaped quick coupling offers the possibility of connecting 2 devices to the compressor. Its practicality does not stop there since it also has 2 wheels to be transported and moved easily, its feet guarantee optimal stability and its high and narrow design prevents it from being bulky despite its good storage capacity of 50 L .

My opinion : It is difficult to decide between vertical compressors which generally have the same specificities, but this Arebos 50L remains my favorite, the one which left me the best impression among all those I have tried. This is mainly due to the fact that in addition to having a large capacity and having a pressure that goes up to 10 bars, it comes with a whole set of valves and this is what allows it to stand out from its competitors. It is also very easy to use, its maneuverability is excellent thanks to its wheels and I confirm that it is perfectly stable once in use. It can be a little loud at 97dB, but that’s usually the case with all devices of this type and therefore cannot be faulted. If you had to recommend just one, it would definitely be this one!

Einhell TE-AC 24 silencer

Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

Silent vertical compressor einhell te-ac 24Ultra quiet operation! The Einhell TE-AC 24 Silent vertical compressor stands out from the rest thanks to its ability to emit only 57 dB in operation, a very low noise level compared to conventional models. However, it does not compromise on performance: thanks to its 750 W motor, it easily finds its place in the garage or workshop. Especially since its 24 L tank is more than enough to paint, blow, sand or simply inflate tires, balls or mats. It works in these different applications thanks to a pressure reducer (max. 8 bar) and the presence of a quick coupling and a pressure gauge. Thanks to its handle, it is surprisingly easy to move, its feet effectively dampen vibrations and its oil-free motor requires no special maintenance.

My opinion : What silence! Before trying it I hadn’t really realized the difference it would make to go from 80/90dB down to just 57dB and it’s actually quite remarkable. If you ever work regularly in your workshop with a compressor, opting for this Einhell can bring you real additional comfort: although it is obviously not completely silent, the noise it emits is much more pleasant, especially over time. . . This is not its only asset either, since it is of good quality, well designed, perfectly stable and easy to handle with its handle. This silent technology is paid for, the price difference is quite obvious, but for a more comfortable working environment, it is an excellent investment!

Mecafer 425090

Editor’s note: 4 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

vertical compressor mecafer-425090Maintenance, DIY, painting, hobbies… he can do it all! The Mecafer 425090, which is also found under the name Fifty in reference to its 50L tank capacity, is as efficient as it is practical. It has a maximum pressure of 10 bar and thanks to its 2 HP motor it responds when it comes to inflating, blowing, stapling, etc. Optimally designed, it has a full-height design to take up little space when it comes to storage and, being equipped with large wheels as well as a handlebar, it is very easy to move it to take it wherever it is going to be used (its power cable also has a length of 1.80 m). Its engine finally has oil-free technology, that is to say that it does not require any maintenance on the compression head.

My opinion : Among the whole range of vertical compressors, I would put this Mecafer in the category of good value for money. It’s solid, easy to use, its tank is generous in size and it turns impeccably, nothing to complain about. I also liked the fact that it does not vibrate too much, that it is very stable and above all that it is very easy to move, transport and store. Obviously it is not perfect, and its main fault is probably the noise it emits: it is quite present and perhaps even more so than with other more sophisticated models. But it is a detail that we generally know, so it is not disqualifying either, especially since its price is attractive and it is even offered with or without a hose, depending on whether you are equipped or not. .

As for its design, it is equipped above all with large wheels to move it easily and with feet which, in addition to damping vibrations, give it perfect stability during use. Solid and of excellent quality, it should also be noted that its tank benefits from a 10-year guarantee against corrosion.

My opinion : Einhell is an excellent brand of equipment and tools, and if you ever have a good alternative to the Arebos that I presented to you at the beginning of this selection, this model should interest you. Located in a similar price range, it has exactly the same capabilities and features, that is to say, in particular, everything that one expects when buying a vertical compressor. It is solid and of very good quality, hyper functional, well designed with its handle and its wheels and it is also available in different versions. You can choose it, for example, more or less powerful, and above all without accessories or with those that interest you between a blow gun or a hose.

Scheppach 24L

Editor’s note: 4 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

vertical compressor scheppach 24lA vertical compressor in a compact format! The Scheppach 24L easily finds its place in any garage thanks to its small dimensions, its low weight and its carrying/storage handle. This is partly due to the fact that it is limited to a capacity of 24 L, which does not however prevent it from being useful for many everyday tasks, whether for DIY or for inflating tires, balloons , mattresses or buoys. In fact, it is equipped with a maximum pressure of 10 bars, a quick coupling for tool change, as well as a pressure gauge and a regulator to use it optimally according to need. Like the most advanced models, it also works without oil, which greatly limits the maintenance required.

My opinion : If you are looking for a small inexpensive vertical compressor, I recommend this Scheppach 24L! One thing is certain, it is not made to equip large pneumatic tools but, on the other hand, for all more traditional domestic uses, it has no difficulty in responding. Its reservoir capacity is more than enough to inflate your tires and its small size allows you to easily store it between uses. This obviously does not escape the big flaw of these devices, namely the noise during use, but I found that it was not unbearable either, which is a good point. For occasional use and troubleshooting when needed, you won’t regret having it at home!
