Default Air Compressor, what's the catch?

Bought one of these off Amazon.

http://www.amazon.com/Grizzly-CE7000...productDetails

Why is it so cheap, keep thinking something's up here?

Whoa, I might have to jump on that in case they honor the deal.

Yeah, Summit is almost $2000.

I'll bet you get an email soon stating there was an error in the listing and they cannot sell it to you at that price.

and wow, what a steal. they probably got the numbers wrong. I bought like 5 air tanks when they had a price wrong ($3.xx) for a 5 gallon tank. they emailed me back a few days later forcing a refund and said they refuse to sell the tanks at such a loss and an error in setting up the page.

Maybe they are sending it in pieces. That is the catch, it is cheap because you have to put it together yourself.

Shipping weight says 60 pounds, I'd assume it was a replacement compressor.

Northern Tool shows the same thing. In fact, it looks like the exact same listing except for the name and price.

I ordered one also. I might have to rent a forklift to get it off the truck but at that price I don't care.

That's how many other 'stores' sell it, not how many are in stock.
