Air Compressors Direct Recommended

If you need the extra CFM that a 2-stage air compressor delivers, this unit is a good place to start.

Its compact design is great for places where space is limited, and it has a sturdy cast iron pump with a 2 year full factory warranty for reliability.

For multiple users, or high demand tools like sanders and sprayers, this is a good, cost effective unit to make the step up from single stage air compressors.

We are fortunate that our 3 top picks are assembled in the USA; our Better and... more

I ordered a Bel Aire that came in with shipping damage bent copper pipe, damaged on/off switch and scuffed paint. Bel Aire got the pipe to me but dropped the ball on the switch and I rubbed out the scuff.

Compressors direct called me about the switch and contacted Bel Aire and the switch was here in a few days. Great Customer Service from Compressors Direct.

I would never have received this service from Northern tool or Tractor Supply or the local auto parts dealer. The compressor is... more

Issues!
First the compressor in the picture is not the configuration that you will get! Unit came in on time but did have shipping damage, two damage parts copper pipe around compressor was bent and on/off switch damaged, also paint scuffed up! Called Belaire they got the pipe to me with in a week as for the on/off switch, still not here. As for the unit it was overfilled on oil had to let some out to proper level. The instruction manual is JUNK and should be reserved for the bathroom, if your not sure... more

Not White As Pictured
Compressor arrived quickly, but it is not white as pictured. It is grey. The pressure gauge is broken. Unfortunately, did not see the damage until after the electrician pointed it out. So far, the unit is working well.

Great For My Garage
A 60 gallon, 2-stage compressor is overkill for most, but it's better to have too much air than not enough. I've used it to paint (HVLP) and in my sandblasting cabinet and everything in between.

My old single stage was so loud i couldn't talk to anyone while it was running, this one is quiet enough to hold a conversion in the garage now while it runs. It took about 8 minutes to fill up completely.

As one review stated before, mine was overfilled with oil (only about 2-3 oz) and the... more

Up & Running
Just a follow up on the "Loud knock" compressor pump. Received the Italian replacement pump the following Tuesday. Installed it the next day and realized that there was no oil in it so drained the oil from the old pump. Looked to be pretty close to 40 or 50 weight. So ran down to TS and picked up some 30 weight as they recommend for these 2 stage pumps. Filled and fired it up.

Much quieter, but wouldn't say this compressor set up is quiet. Still pretty loud but at least it doesn't... more

Loud Knock
Received this BelAire 216V compressor pronto. ACD called to let me know it shipped and the truck was there the next day at the gate. Talk about fast! Arrived with no shipping damage. And the truck driver helped me wrestle it in the back of my truck. Awesome.

Got it wired and plumbed up and flipped her on. Much to my disappointment there was a LOUD knock coming from the pump. It came up to pressure, but sounded like a rod was trying to escape out the side of the pump case. If I restricted... more

Steve,
I am sorry you had issues with the pump- but that's exactly the kind of situation the Factory Warranty is meant to cover. I understand your disappointment, and I'm glad a new pump is already on the way.

Thank you for your business- and please accept our apologies for any inconvenience.

Steve,
We added the liftgate as an option because some customers have their compressors delivered to a loading dock and don't need it- so we can ship on a less expensive truck without a lift gate.

Great Compressor Mostly
Haven't really had the chance to use my compressor but it came in. The quality appears great only complaint is that I wired it up and found out the pressure switch was faulty. Kinda sucks being brand new coming with a faulty switch.

I needed my compressor that day so went to Tractor Supply bought a new one and now it works perfect. I will be contacting BelAire on Monday for a new pressure switch. I'm hoping they will just refund me what I paid for the new switch over sending me a new one,... more

Kevin,
I am sorry the pressure switch didn't work properly from the get-go. This unit has a 2 year, consumer-use Factory Warranty from the folks at BelAire that covers defects in materials and workmanship situations like yours.

You can contact BeAire at (877) 861-2722. Please be sure to have the serial number of your compressor handy when you call them. I understand that you needed your compressor right away, but their warranty may not cover parts and service done outside of their Authorized Dealer network- it's going to be their call.

If they ask for a copy of your invoice just click on My Account in the upper right corner of our website and follow the prompts to print one out.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience.

Does The Trick
First off, the pros:
-Shipped quick & properly packed
-It's fairly quiet compared to our current shop compressor (not to say that you'll be making phone calls with it running)
-It compresses air just fine

Cons:
-I walked into a discount chain store a few weeks after receiving it and I'll be darned, they have a compressor with the exact same motor and pump on it mounted to the same tank for about 30% less.
-Pump was leaking air from both the pressure switch and the air outlet when I... more

Michael,
If you have concerns about the performance of your compressor, please call the folks at BelAire, toll free, at (877) 861-2722. It is their commitment to stand behind their product that accounts for the price difference with no-name brands.

Great Compressor!
I did the research and made the selection after much deliberation. Being a retired GM master mechanic of many years I was looking for a powerful and durable 2 stage compressor for my shop.

I wanted the same or better equipment than what I was used to in the dealerships that I worked at. Nothing less. And I found it! It took a while to get it set up because of time constraints at the time, but it is up and running and I am extremely happy with my purchase.

It is VERY quiet. And plenty of... more

Not American-made
I ordered this product from ACD and it just arrived this morning. I have not hooked it up yet, but wanted to write about a few observations that I have made.

The "assembled in the USA" is misleading. The pump has "Made in EU" stamped on it and the motor has "Assembled in Mexico" stamped on it. The valves have "CHINA" stamped on them. The only thing American I can find on this product is the manual which reads "Printed in USA". I can't... more

Product Expert
Marvin,
The compressor is assembled in the USA from globally sourced components. In order to display Made In The USA at least 85% of the components have to come from the US.

We sell compressors that qualify as Made In The USA, such as Quincy. They do, however, tend to be more expensive.

Very Nice Commpressor
Don't be in a hurry to get the compressor. It took three weeks.

The compressor was delivered and dropped off in front of my garage. I came home from work and had it hooked up and running in one hour. Easy to wire up 220 volts.

There were no leaks, and I filled the tank very quickly. It's very quiet and delivers enough air for two sanders. You can blow out of a blow gun and it gradually fill and shut off.

I am very pleased. I would recommend this compressor for any home shop. I took a... more
