Air Compressors Direct Recommended

Our choice for the "Better" slot is a step up in power. Heavy Duty 2.0 HP, Dual Voltage, Solid Cast Iron Pump to help run your power with 120 volts set up or convert to 240.

The larger, 20 gallon air tank are built to last and ship right out the manufacturing facility owned by CH. A brand you can trust backed up with a 3 year warranty.

It does not get a lot of use in the winter, but I just leave it on all of the time in the summer it gets used almost... more

The regulator and support were a disappointment. The regulator had a 35 lb. swing from load to no-load. I phoned the "contact us first" number on the product manual and was directed to a local "service... more
