My New Big Blue
I recently ordered a Quincy Max 7.5hp 80 gallon 2 stage air compressor after deliberating between this one and the comparable Ingresoll Rand version. Air recommended the Quincy since the life rating on the compressor was much more than the IR.

The compressor arrived on a drop deck 18 wheeler. It was well worth the extra $35 for the drop deck. The driver even let me use his pallet jack to wheel it into my shop. The compressor was well packaged, and also included a... more

Would Not Deliver To Alley
I placed the order and paid additional for liftgate delivery. However, they refused to deliver it to my alley where my shop is accessible (plenty of room for a box truck). I canceled the order.

I'm sorry we couldn't arrange delivery in an alley- there are some places a semi-truck just won't fit. Other customers with tight delivery spaces arrange to pick the unit up at the shipping terminal so they can use a smaller vehicle.

Our Shipping Policy says items over 100 pounds ship by semi-truck for curb-side delivery. The liftgate lowers the compressor from the truck to the ground if you don't have a loading dock, fork lift, or front loader.

Still Don't Have It
Ordered on 1-23-15, showed up on 2-4-15 damaged. I did not accept it. Looked like it fell off a loading dock, still had pieces of concrete on it from falling. I received an email to write a review and I still do not have the compressor.

My c/c has been charged. I called 3 times and was told I would get a call back or email and I haven't gotten either. On today 2-25-15 I am not unhappy I just want the compressor or an explanation.

We are sorry to hear of how long this process has taken to get the air compressor you have ordered. After tracking the replacement order I have shown that it was delivered on 2/26. The arrival took this long due to the fact the trucking company experienced some inclement weather along the way. Please let us know if we can help any further. We can be reached at 800-710-7499.

Eletric Motors Used
According to Quincy, they use Baldor electric motors primarily and WEG secondary. WEG are made in Brazil and Quincy suggests they are equal to Baldor.

Not sure about that but if they use WEG, Quincy must have the insight they are worthy of a Baldor or they would start a huge problem with their customer base.

Replacing A 20 Year Old Snap-on Compressor
I picked the Quincy for 2 reasons, one it has a lot of options and two, it was American made. So far I'm
satisfied with its operation, it sounds good, refills fast, and has plenty of air to offer.

A couple of small issues to explain. 1. it took 11 business days to ship, which was 4 days longer than advertised, so keep that in mind when ordering. My American made compressor has a "made in Brazil" electric motor on it. There is a small air leak somewhere on the unit because the... more

Our website shows this unit "Ships in 4 to 7 Business Days". Business days are Monday thru Friday, excluding holidays. Your unit was ordered on 10/2, and shipped on 10/14- the 8th business day after you ordered, which was the Columbus Day holiday.

YRC Freight shows it was delivered on 10/17, so the entire delivery took 11 business days. This is reasonable for units that need to be shipped by freight carriers; their turnaround time is slower than smaller UPS or FedEX shipments.

This unit has a 2 year Factory Warranty, so please contact the folks at Quincy directly at (217) 277-0270 for help in troubleshooting or setting up service for your compressor.
