Air Compressors Direct Recommended

This compressor by Rolair secured our "Better" slot because of the features that make it ideal for inside contractor jobs.

There is no gas motor with fumes and exhaust, and we like the intake filter with a silencer & replaceable element for quiet running.

The 1.5HP electric motor uses ball bearings for greater durability, and it plugs into regular 115V service, although it can be rewired for a 230V plug if needed. The air-cooled aftercooler helps prolong the life of the... more

Best Wheel Barrow Compressor
Best wheelbarrow compressor I've owned (I've owned at least 5).
Great compressor, starts in sub freezing weather and has no problem keeping up with 3 men on Framing guns.
I will buy another one of these!!!!

Doesn't Keep Up With A Framing Gun
I own 2 of these and hate both of them. They will not keep up with one framing gun that is shear nailing.

I am going to pick up a new 2 hp Jenny; hopefully it is as good as the old Emglo's...

Colin,
Regardless of the brand, the CFM of the tool must match the CFM of the compressor- this unit is rated at 6.9CFM at 100 PSI. Some of the big framing nailers run about 5 CFM at 70-120 PSI; that's going to make this compressor work to keep up.

Rolair has an excellent factory warranty program that covers defects in manufacture or workmanship on this unit for 1 year. If you feel the compressor has not been assembled properly, please give the folks at Rolair a call at 920-349-3281. They will be happy to help you.
