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 isnt strong enough, the air tool simply wont 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.

Questionable Assembly
Fine except the drain valve reducer had been damaged during install. I had to remove the reducer, tap the port and replace the valve with a new fitting. Not what I expect from a highly reputable brand.

The pump check valve seems to be leaking by allowing the system to loose pressure when not in use, this is a great waste of energy. My only question is how it passed a pressure test.
Pros: Quiet, Reliable
Cons: Low Quality

It's Working
I haven't used this air compressor enough to say anything about it besides it came leaking from the little pipe between the tank and presser reg. I'm sure it was damaged from shipping.

I put on a new pipe and it's good as new. Updates on performance later.
Cons: Packaging

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.

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.

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

Love It!
I have had mine for 2+ years now and absolutely love it. It has not had a single issue.

The quality is awesome, it's powerful, quiet and durable. One of the best power tool investments I ever made.

Love It!
I love this compressor. Of course I'm basing it off my experience with a 20 year old Sears Craftsman that's as loud as a Speed Boat.

Shipping wasn't as quick as I would have liked, but packaging was fine. It's quiet enough for me too.

Hard Time Wiring It In
Come to find out this particular compressor has a motor that is notorious for breaking, mostly due to over-powering the wiring for it.

I had to wire my own plug and whip on the compressor itself, still haven't wired 230v outlet for it in the garage, so I have yet to see how it performs.

I have however had a heck of a time trying to figure out how exactly to wire it, figured out that 10-2 wire is needed with a 30a 2 pole breaker and 30a/2p/3w plug and receptacle.

As far as shipping... more

Leo,
If the Owner's Manual doesn't have all the information you need, you can always call the folks at Ingersoll Tech Support, toll free, at (800) 866-5457.

The Factory Warranty covers your air compressor for 1 year from the day it was delivered. This should be plenty of time to reveal any defects in materials or workmanship- but improper wiring would not be covered.

Ingersoll Rand does not use any refurbished parts on their new units. Components are painted to match each unit's color scheme, but they are all new parts.
