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.

Air Compressors Direct Recommended

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.

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.

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.

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..

Certainly Not Commercial
Emerson motor shorted out after 4 years of light use. I thought I was getting good quality. The tank is good the two stage pump is good the Emerson motor is sub standard.

Leaks Oil...
I ordered this compressor and it works great, aside from the fact that it leaks oil out of the fill plug... I tried to contact Air Compressors Direct, and they told me to call Ingersoll Rand... Not very happy... Guess I'll keep adding oil every week. Great customer service...
Steve, the Air Compressor Expert
Product Expert
Nick,
If it's a manufacturer-related issue, it's most efficient to contact the manufacturer. We don't do repairs here, so we'd follow the same procedure of contacting the manufacturer and acquiring the part(s). Then we'd send the part(s) to you. This could take quite a while.

Therefor, we recommend you contact the manufacturer directly so they can send the part(s) straight to your home or suggest a local authorized repair shop to take it for repair under warranty.

We simply want to do what's best for you in this situation, which is to have you directly contact Ingersoll Rand's customer support line at (630) 530-3843 and let them know what's going on.

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!

Great Compressor.
Bought mine in 2003......it was in a sealed box and came with oil and instructions.
It had a problem with the pressure switch last year, but a replacement on eBay was overnighted and the compressor was back in business quickly.

Due to having only single phase power, I made sure it was situated next to the electric panel and have never had trouble with the motor or starting capacitors.I'd buy another 5-HP IR compressor in a minute!
