Q: What is the advantage of a 2 stage unit versus a single stage unit on a 5 HP compressor.
by Tom from Illinois on July 31, 2014

A: A two stage compressor compresses the air twice resulting in a maximum air pressure of 175 psi. A single stage compressor will only achieve a max pressure of between 125-135 psi.
The air flow, CFM, is usually a more important factor when choosing an air compressor.
Some air tools consume more air than others. Nailers and staplers require a puff of air. Sandblasters and sanders need massive gusts.

So, you basically want to know how fast the air comes out of the compressor. The air flow is measured in Cubic Feet Per Minute (CFM). The greater the flow -- the greater the power.

You simply select an air compressor that exceeds the CFM of your most powerful air tool. If the flow isnít strong enough, the air tool simply wonít perform properly.
We recommend sizing the compressor 1.25-1.5 times the CFM of your tool for continuous operation. If the compressor does not produce enough air volume, CFM, then the pressure will drop.
Reciprocating (Piston) compressors are not designed for continuous or 100% duty cycle. The compressor will cycle off & on if it is sized correctly.

Q: I am in Australia and was wondering about using this compressor over here. Do you know if it is compatible. Do you have the specs so that I can check with the electricians over here. Thanks for your help.
by Cristos Zisopoulos on December 04, 2011

A: All the compressors we sell are designed for 120V or 240V 60 Hz AC only.

Ingersoll Rand has been a quality name since your grandfather's time- with good reason. Since 1905 they have been building tools that stand the test of time.

This unit earned our Better rating because it has more features than our Good choice- and the price is, not surprisingly, higher.

What you get for the money is a durable, reliable air compressor with high efficiency valves, air filters, and intercooler; along with OSHA compliant housing on the flywheel, belt and motor sheave.

Excellent Compressor
I purchased this compressor 5 years ago. I use it in my shop for air tools and for painting. There is nothing I can't do with it.

Very happy and no issues at all with it.

The Best Compressor I've Own!
I bought my IR 5-hp 60gallon from sears in 2005. It was a display model that was decommission and replace with a newer model!.. My garage is 100feet away from my service panel so I run a heavy duty 10 guage 3 wire extension cord to my garage where my IR is located!

"Pretty much happy with the whole experience. The only thing I had to wait for was a confirmation of shipping information. After about a week of no updates I finally sent an email. I had a very quick response to my email and also received shipping info. I guess even though it takes a little while for that information, I would probably suggest some kind of confirmation or info just to keep a customers mind at ease. Thank You!"

Daniel,
Thank you for your feedback. Our website says this ships from Ingersoll Rand in 2 to 5 business days (Monday thru Friday, excluding holidays). We sent the shipping information to you on the 5th business day. If your order didn't ship within that period we would have followed up with Ingersoll Rand and let you know what was going on. We don't collect payment until your order ships, so we watch the shipping dates very closely. We're always happy to hear from you, and it was no problem to check on your shipment for you!

My Air Tools Are Much More Lively
The compressor arrived 12/8/2015 in great shape. Did not get it wired until 1/15/2016.

It works really good, it replaces a single stage Ingersoll Rand compressor that is 16 years old and still running.

Really enjoy the 2 stage as my air tools are much more lively.

Bad Emerson Motors
I owned and used lightly for four years. Electric motor shelled. Ingersoll will not do anything. New motor $430!!! Had a $300
Craftsman 30 gallon doing same work for same time and it still runs. Do not waste your money on this brand. Just check forums
out and you will hear same story on Emerson motors and IR compressors.

Assembled In The Us
You advertise American made; the pump was made in India. I will never buy IR products again.
Steve, the Air Compressor Expert

Pete,
We advertise "Proudly built in the USA". This unit is assembled in the US from globally sourced components.

In order to qualify for "Made In The USA" at least 85% of the components need to be made in the US, and it needs to be built in the US. We sell units that meet those requirements, such as Quincy; however they tend to be more expensive than globally sourced units.

Never Again With Ped
Bought thru ebay, waited a strong week before shipped. Delivery excellent, appeared like all is well from outside. When opened drain in bottom of tank before running compressor at least a quart of water/oil came out. 2/3 oil 1/3 water.

Called ped they immediately pasted me off to ingersoll rand. Now ped has washed there hands clean and have nothing to do with item. Called ir and they will not replace it, just want to warranty what ever went wrong, yet they don't know what is wrong.

Motor Doesn't Last. .
I have owned this compressor for 5 years with minimal home use. The start capacitor went out 2 times. I call OR and talked to tech support and they where unable to help. The only choice I have is to spend $500 for a new motor...not much help..

Good Luck
Bought the compressor, it arrived shortly after. I read a few reviews stating poor instructions. That's where I must have gone wrong...forgot to read them. Seemed pretty easy to install without any.

I purchased the 230v 1ph unit. Unit works well.

My only complaint might be that it came without any oil in the compressor, nor did it come with any oil....but for $100+, you can buy a kit. Go to a chain store for the oil and the remaining $1000 worth of electrical conduit, wire, plumbing... more
