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.

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.

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
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.

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

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.

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
