They still have a good reputation right?

I realize they have the whole China thing going now but you really can't avoid it.
Eaton, good reputation? maybe you should read this?

Eaton Compressor threatens to sue me over "Made in China" compressor post

And yes you certainly CAN avoid that "China thing"!

Maybe you did not notice that the US General is just a rebadged AMERICAN made Belaire compressor. It is made in the USA with the exception of the pump which is from Italy and is very good quality. Also if you want to spend more for a true industrial quality compressor then a Quincy (available at a really good price from Northern tool) is all USA built including the pump and is far better quality that the Chinese Eaton!

Some people just dismiss anything from HF but not everything they have is junk and that compressor is the best example of that. For the money it is THE best deal available anywhere for a compressor in that class.
