Q: Puma 5-HP 60-Gallon (Belt Drive) Single-Stage Air Compressor $925.00
What's the duty cycle on this unit?

by Gary Pennington from Texas on July 04, 2016

A: Most manufacturers do not state the duty cycle of their compressors, but a 50% duty cycle is common for most consumer grade compressors.
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.

This Puma unit has a 3-cylinder pump so it provides a longer service life than an aluminum . You can drive large air tools, or support multiple users for repair or fabrication work.

Our Best choice compressor runs on 208/230 volt single phase power, so it's easy to work into your garage setup.

Awesome
Dealing with ACD.was awesome. Placing the order to be delivered, I received the compressor in about 4 days after placing my order. ACD has great customer service as well.

The compressor never misses a beat. Runs my grinders, DA, and my paint guns. I never have to wait for the air to build up.

It is really quiet for its size. I think this is the best compressor I have ever owned.

Buy one- u will not be disappointed.

Puma 5 Hp 60 Gal
This compressor runs quiet but does put out a lot of heat. It was easy to wire up to my existing 220 from my previous compressor. The delivery truck driver was great and used a pallet jack to move the compressor as close as he could to my mounting location. The packaging was strange with a pallet nailed to another pallet and vertical wood beams as support.

These beams scratched the paint off the tank but no big deal. My biggest surprise was when I was at Northern tool and saw the exact same... more

Excellent Compressor
I first purchased a 5 hp Puma in 1996. That compressor never failed. I felt it was time to upgrade so my choice was of course another Puma.

It was delivered in perfect condition. Runs like a top and very quiet.

Highly recommend this compressor!!!

Good Value
Compressor runs hvlp gun, grinder and da sander, one at a time. Compressor runs continuously with cheap/low quality da sanders.

Electric motor pulley came loose and flew off from electric motor shaft, also pump pulley is dual belt and motor pulley is single belt drive.

Delivery service was awesome. Driver helped push compressor up a incline driveway and inside the garage. No shipping damage to compressor.

Would buy again, just make sure to dismantle the belt cage ( pain ) and tighten... more

Buying Experience Went Well
Buying experience went well.

2 things slight problem.1st: pulley on motor was loose so had to take apart cage to fix.

2nd: wire on/on off switch is12 wire to motor. I had to run 8 wire from panel because of distance to compressor so I put in saftey switch then ran 10 wire into on/off switch.

Compressor Runs Great & Not Too Loud
Received Puma 5hp 60 gal. compressor without any hang ups.

Check the Sheaves/pulleys, set screws and belt alignment before starting. I had to re-align and tighten motor sheave set screws 15 min.

Compressor runs great no leaks and not too loud.

Impressive
Pro's surprisingly quiet, low vibration, eye appealing, and cost effective. Impressive.

Con: first run, unloader continued to hiss, I had to remove the check valve and remove a metal chip that was stuck in the valve holding it open. I realize that this could happen on almost piece of new equipment. I would still give it Five stars at this time, we will see how it holds up in the years to come.

Note: I am the type of owner that will change the oil occasionally and check the belt.
Note: I... more

Good Compressor At A Good Price
My experience with this compressor, and with the delivery / customer service from Air Compressors Direct has been positive. The lift gate service dropped the compressor at the street as committed, so I got it up my driveway on a small utility trailer.

I called Puma technical support and got some good advice regarding installation, used concrete wedge anchor bolts, shims to get it level, and cut squares of old tire for vibration dampening.

Followed manufacturers recommendations for... more

There Were Few Issues
The compressor was delivered wrapped in foil and attached to a pallet. It came undamaged. No single scratch anywhere.

The first issue was apparent shortly after I turned it on. It was extremely noisy. Initially I thought that it was bad bearing in the motor but I very quickly found that the small belt pulley didn't have tightened set screws and and rattled on the motor shaft.

After the pulleys were aligned and set screws tightened it works as expected. It is quieter than my old Sears... more

Ladislav,
Please make sure that you have followed all of the set up and break-in procedures described on Page 8 of the Owner's Manual. (You can download a copy under the Specs tab on the product page of our website).

Step 1 is "Check to see that nuts and bolts are all snug." Steps 2 and 3 tell you how to set up the belt.

Steps 10 and 11 advise 20 minutes of no-load running to lubricate the the bearings and piston; then close the valve and allow it to reach maximum operating pressure. Step 14 advises to stop the compressor and re-check the oil to complete the prep and break-in.

Just What The Doctor Order
This is my second Puma. the first was the 6060 this one is the 6560.

It does just what i wanted it for- I needed the CFMs to run an HVLP sprayer, never missed a beat.

I had great service with Air Compressors Direct, easy and smooth.

Thanks for a great product.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Quiet, Reliable
