2 out of 2 reviewers would buy this item again.
It was a nice cheaper replacement than OEM parts. The documentation could be better though! It would not allow air to build up and I could not find any info on the problem. I ended up opening ta valve a little bit and now it works great.
I use these soft start/dump valves on our machinery. The pressure gauge is a plus over competitors units. They have performed as expected, on the many machines Ive built, when the air supply is clean. If your air supply is questionable (lots of water, rust) I would recommend upgrading the filtration used prior to this valve to 5-micron. Two-years ago I had to replace 2 units due to a customers dirty air supply and I had used 40-micron filtration (the failure was the valve remained "on" when power was dropped). Overall, I think theyre a good value.
