It was a tough choice to slot Better and Best. Quincy has been around a while, too- since 1924. With that much practice, like our Better pick, you can get really good at building a quality product.

They both have high efficiency parts, are built for continuous duty, industrial use, and are ASME certified. And, both are built in the US of A.

What bumped Quincy into the top spot was the 50,000 hour- or more- pump life rating. You will spend more money up front, but in the long run (some... more

Leaks
When I first ran the compressor I had air leaks on the fittings. The 90 degree fitting on the bottom of the compressor had to be replaced it leaked so bad.

The the fitting that goes out the side to the pressure gauge leaked. It had only three threads into the tank. Who ever inspected this tank did a poor job.

Gary,
Sometimes shipping is hard on a compressor- but you are absolutely correct, all of the fittings should be installed properly. I will be sure to mention your situation next time I talk to our Quincy rep!

Please feel free to call Quincy at 251.937.5900 with any issues you may have- they stand behind their products and are happy to help out.

Great Service, Great Compressor!
The Quincy QT-Pro compressor was delivered sooner than predicted. It arrived in perfect condition and, after the first week, I couldn’t be more satisfied. The lift gate service was essential and proved its worth at a very reasonable price. The Quincy was crated in a manner befitting the compressor “inside”.

It took more time to uncrate the compressor than it took to get it up-and-running. Quiet? Sure. Why not? It is significantly quieter than the clattering, leaking antique it... more

So Far, So Good
I received the compressor and it was crated very well. The driver was very helpful on the unloading and I have completed the break in period.

I have mostly used the compressor for sand blasting and with my 1/2" impact gun on a Bronco rebuild. It has not skipped a beat and I have had plenty of air.

It blows my old Pro-Air compressor away and is much quieter. I gave it 4 Stars for value since it is more expensive than other comparable compressors.

However, So Far So Good!

Almost Perfect
I had to replace a 15 year old 30 gallon oil-free compressor that's too small for my current needs. I agonized over what compressor to buy, read reviews and forum postings and articles and came close to buying a few times before I settled on the one thing that made more sense than anything--buying a Made-in-USA compressor that would probably outlive me, the Quincy QT-54 (2V41C60VC).

Delivery was nearly painless, thanks to a friendly driver who helped me move it up my sloping driveway and... more

Quiet Quincy Purchase
My purchase was made out of need for increased volume. I owned a single stage for twenty years that served me well but would not produce enough air to perform normal duty cycles, it just ran constantly when demand was high.

After a good amount of research I chose the Quincy. I was pleased with my purchase and was very happy with how quiet the Quincy is.

Nice Compressor
i chose the Quincy because of the the better pump life. I figured for a few hundred more dollars you get a 50,000 hour pump life and a 2 year extended warranty. I noticed when I received my compressor it had just been built! so That maybe why it takes 2-3 weeks to receive, which is fine with me.

This compressor will last me a life time. I've had it now for about 2 months and I only have 3 hours of run time on it. ( I installed a 230v hour meter to keep track for maintains purposes). So far... more

Great Compressor, Good Price
I have only used the compressor a few times so far, but it appears to be a quality unit. I really like the easily accessible drain valve. It is relatively quiet, compared to the 17 year old Campbell Hausfield unit that it replaced.

The compressor came securely attached to a heavy duty pallet, and had a heavy duty crate around it. I'm glad I paid for lift gate service, since it was a residential delivery and I have a steep driveway. My neighbor used his small tractor and a sling to lift... more

Great Compressor For The Serious Home User
I do a lot of garage projects that use compressed air tools. This compressor is outstanding and a big improvement over my 15 year old oil-less compressor. Much more quiet making it easier to share the work space.

Also, with the 60 gallon tank, it recycles much less frequently than my old compressor. The quality of the QT-54 is outstanding. Easy to wire-up and connect to my existing distribution piping.

Just What The Doctor Ordered!
My old air compressor had been in storage for several years, when I hooked it up the bottom blew out. I decided to purchase a quality air compressor, I wanted one made in the USA with quality parts and a 100% duty cycle. I did a great deal of research, put a lot of miles on the truck checking out local retail stores in attempt to find what I wanted. No luck!

Based on my research, many comparisons and reading I don't know how many reviews I chose the Quincy. It is all I wanted in an air... more

"My Quincy arrived in record time, had it hooked up shortly after it delivered. Instructions were clear and complete, very easy to wire. The pump was filled with oil on arrival. Great experience with Air Compressors Direct and Quincy, I contacted both of them. It is very refreshing to have a purchase and transaction go as well as this one. Like I said, I expect my money's worth and I expect service or I get very cranky. Thank you again for taking the time to answer my questions and the prompt polite service. That's how doing business should be."

My 5 hp 60 gal vertical was delivered today and I was first impressed with the crating protection provided for the unit, it even had a tilt indicator to advise you if the unit had been on its side.

It will be a while before I have it installed in the shop just getting in was a lot of work with all the snow outside and the temp being 3 degrees above zero . But the way Quincy crated the unit I was able to get it onto some dollys to move it by myself.

I'm looking forward to using this unit... more

The compressor was shipped in a timely manner and the packaging is more than adequate. The unit looks like a quality product.

After the initial break in period I noted a leak. With the outlet valve closed my tank would not hold pressure overnight. I found the plastic water drain tube leaking. After removing the line which was installed without teflon tape or pipe dope, I reinstalled the line and slowed the leak down.

I then noted a leak in the fitting at the water drain. The line and... more

Michael,
Since Quincy tests each unit before shipment, your compressor should have arrived with no leaks. I am so sorry we didn't get back to you immediately, but I'm glad you posted this review so we could contact you directly.

I've contacted the folks at Quincy to let them know about your circumstances and work with them to resolve your issues as quickly as possible.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience.

Fantastic Detail To Quality
As I recently sold my 14 acre farm, the buyer insisted that I leave my Quincy behind as part of the sale, so I named my price and he agreed. I bought a 41 acre farm, and yes I replaced it with another identical Quincy and refused to buy anything else! I love the quality and take pride in knowing they are built with dedication by American workers in Illinois!

I am a huge believer in American built products and often hunt them down! I noticed a few improvements to the new unit, which tells me... more

Steve,
I'm sorry you had problems with your air compressor. We don't see many, since Quincy tests each unit before it leaves their dock- but I can understand that you're upset with your situation.

Please, be assured that you would not have been left without alternatives. We talk to the folks at Quincy almost every day- if you'd needed us to step in and help get your situation resolved we would have been happy to. Quincy service locations are not supposed to discriminate against online purchases- Quincy does pay for warranty repair on units purchased from us.

Since the Factory Warranty is from Quincy it is up to them to decide how best to help you. I'm glad they are sending out a replacement motor to you instead of insisting that a Factory Authorized Service location does the work- it will get you up and running that much faster.

For the last 20 years I have used the box store $599.00 60 gallon compressors. I have gone through 2 of these units in 20 years. My shop is a home shop but I use compressed air daily. My Kobalt unit started knocking in the bottom end of the pump and sounded like it would grenade any minute. I decided to junk this unit before it scattered.

"As a disabled Vet, (No Legs) I knew I would have trouble getting this unit from the truck to the garage, and I had been thinking of this for some time before the compressor arrived. Come to find out upon delivery John the trucking rep was the greatest that day! He not only unloaded it himself, (yes using a lift but still very, very top heavy) he also wheeled it all the way into my garage and without any help at all! When I needed it put into the corner of the garage John indicated "no problem" and he proceeded to manhandle it off of the pallet and penguin walked it exactly where it needed to be, and with very little help from me. They normally only remove from the truck, however John went over and above his job and "NO" not because I was disabled. He does this for everyone, and I never had to ask. See, there "are" nice people in the world trying to help others and for "NO" extra money either. So I am extremely pleased with John and this trucking company, and they are a tremendous asset to Air Compressors Direct as their trucking company. It only served to make the entire purchasing experience of buying my compressor from ordering to delivery a pleasure rather than a potential headache! Extremely pleased! Thanks"

Shipped quickly and arrived unscathed. It even had an air cushion and tip detector.

Oil was full and fired up like a charm, built pressure quickly and so far so good. Paid the extra to get the maintenance kit and extended warranty but don't expect to use.

Great Compressor!
Purchased this compressor to replace an older single stage compressor that was pretty much wore out and could not keep up with the air tools that I would attempt to use.

Did some research and found out that the Quincy brand had a strong following with a lot of praise for their product, not to mention that it was made in the USA !

Time will tell but so far with minimal use to this point the unit has worked flawless, I believe this compressor will live up to it's reputation.
Pros: High Quality, Quiet, Reliable, Easy To Use

Good Except For The Pressure Switch
The compressor is a good value for the performance. Mechanicals are robust and should last.

One of the contacts in the pressure switch failed with only 6 hours of run time. The contact failed during a start. The motor pulls 22 to 23 amps when running and the switch contacts are only rated for 20 amps. The motor pulls over 100 amps when starting. Running a 5 HP motor off a pressure switch is a marginal design and the pressure switch contacts will fail at some point.

This unit has a 1 year Factory Warranty from Quincy (or 3 years if you purchased the maintenance kit and registered your compressor at www.quincycompressor.com) so you may want to give the folks at Quincy a call at 251.937.5900 so they can address your issue.

Please have the serial number of your unit handy when you call them, in case they ask for it.

I Am Very Pleased With The Quality & Performance
I had a compressor go out that I had owned for 28 years and it was another brand. After looking around at compressors I decided to go ahead and pull the trigger on the Quincy Pro 2 stage compressor this time and I am very pleased!

It is so much quieter and recovers so much faster than the other one I had. I really like the tank drain being out on the front of the unit. It was a chore to drain the old one so I didn't do it as often as I should have.

This is the one to have!

Great Compressor!
This is a very nice compressor. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars for all categories was because after the break-in hour and after retorquing the head bolts, I let the compressor fill up to pressure. When it hit 200 lbs. I had to manually shut it off.

I adjusted the screw in the pressure switch down to about 150 lbs. and it worked o.k. for a while and then wouldn't shut off again. 1 phone call to Quincy and they talked me through a few things to try and when that didn't work they... more

Great Compressor At A Reasonable Price!
When I got the compressor it was in excellent condition. The compressor was crated in a manner that there wasn't any damage or even a scratch on the item. The quality of the item appears to be real good.

Connecting the air and electricity compressor was not difficult at all. I had run #8 wire to the box where I planned on setting the air compressor. I used a twist lock socket/plug. I used #10 SJ cord to run from the wall socket to the power on the unit. That is about the largest size... more

Powerful Compressor Is Just The Size I Needed
I wanted a compressor that would do it all. Provide my automobile shop air needs in the garage, provide compressed air needs in my workshop, service the lawn and garden equipment in my shed and also produce enough air pressure to blow out the lawn irrigation system in the fall.

This Quincy QT pro 5 HP 60 gallon tank air compressor does it all. I have it all plumbed in using 3/4 inch galvanized steel pipe which was more costly than plastic but worth it in the long run. This compressor is... more

"The compressor was sold to me by Power Equipment Direct and was delivered to me quickly. Since this compressor is heavy I asked the truck driver to please help me get it down stairs through my cellar hatchway. We uncrated the compressor and using a large appliance hand truck guided it safely down to the basement floor. I tipped the driver a few bucks for helping me and it was well worth it. I would recommend that you have someone help you because this compressor is too heavy to guide it downstairs by yourself. Also pay the extra money to have the trucking company deliver it with a power lift gate. It is a few bucks more but well worth it!"

Tank fills quickly and is considerably quieter than the Ingersoll Rand 30T I replaced. My 1st impressions are that if the specs on this compressor meet your needs...get one.

Best Compressor Under $1600
I was shopping used first. There were more good running Quincy compressors 30+ years old than any other. This convinced me they last.

Got this 5 hp, two stage and love it. Smooth, fairly quiet and puts out more air than we need.

Super happy with this investment. Thank you!

Quincy Air Compressor is well built, I like the USA part. I had a former compressor it looked and ran like an import.

Quincy is smooth and strong I have been using it for about 2 months no issues I bought the extended warranty.

Nice Machine- The Extra Cost Is Evident In The Product
I have had this compressor in my shop for a week or so. It came nicely crated and protected from the factory and didn't have a scratch on it.

After I wired it up I ran it up to full pressure and a week later it hasn't lost any noticeable amount. The only thing extra I did was to zip tie the cage around the flywheel and motor belt. It has a slight rattle to it when the compressor runs.

The drain out the front is a fantastic feature if you don't think so you have never had to crawl... more

Fast delivery, driver helped me push it through the yard about 200 ft. to my shop. A nice addition to my new 26'x36' garage workshop to replace a noisy 20 year old Craftsman compressor.

Will have it wired up in a couple weeks which is easy to do since I'm a retired electrician. Only downside, I see it on your site for $50 less.

Thomas,
I'm glad you're enjoying your new compressor! We post the best price we can on a daily basis. Special pricing is sponsored by the manufacturers, and will usually only cover sales during a specific period. We sometimes have some wiggle room if your order hasn't shipped when the promotion starts so I checked your order. I'm sorry, it had shipped before the promotion began.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience.

We received this compressor with no issues, but after we started it we noticed that it has a leak, so we have to turn off the power every night to keep it from running off and on all night. I can't believe this was not checked before shipping.

We also would like to see more adjustment on the regulator so we can easily control when it turns on and off as our equipment has very specific needs.

ABF freight would have called the Delivery Phone Number you gave us to set up a delivery date. If you had clicked on the tracking number on your account it would have taken you to the ABF site to show you the progress of your shipment.

Adam,
I'm so sorry you were disappointed by your compressor. Your file shows you had a problem with the internal breaker blowing on your 2013 unit from a different manufacturer as well- you may want to have a licensed electrician come in and check your wiring and load.

This unit is covered by the Factory Warranty from Quincy, so please give them a call at 251.937.5900 and have the serial number of your unit handy when you call. The Factory Warranty covers defects in materials & workmanship, but it won't cover overloading or installation issues.

I was willing to pay a bit more and get a compressor with higher review ratings....it worked out to be the right thing to do.

Elbow Leak
I am happy in all respects except one: the air compressor I received had a large leak at the tank/45* street elbow. I sent an e-mail to Quincy and have yet to receive a response.

After several business days without a response, I fixed the leak myself. I would have rated 'Quality' with 5 stars had it not been for this obvious leak (blew a 2" soap bubble in less than a second).

The purchasing process was very smooth at ACD. I paid by check to get the additional discount and had to wait for the check to clear, but I wasn't in a hurry.

The compressor came on a lift gated truck when they said it would. No issues. Installation was no problem on a 30amp circuit, 240v, 1 phase.

The difference you've noticed is the change from a 'middle of the pack' compressor to a 'top of the line' compressor- your new Quincy should serve you well for many years!

Ray,
I'm sorry the issues you've had with your Quincy compressor have caused problems at work; I understand your frustration.

Your order was processed & sent to Quincy the same day (7/21) you placed it. We say this compressor ships from Quincy in 2 to 5 business days (Monday thru Friday, excluding holidays) and yours shipped on the 2nd business day (7/25). It had to travel across the country by freight truck, and you called us to report the damage 7 business days after that (8/3).

Your replacement order was processed the same day you called us (8/3), and shipped out from Quincy 2 business days later (8/5). It took 6 business days to travel by freight truck from Florida to your Washington State address on 8/15.

I hope you've touched base with Quincy at (224) 501-3212 regarding the status of your switch shipment. If you'd like us to ask our sales rep to get involved to expedite getting the switch to you, please email me at 'service@aircompressorsdirect.com' with the serial number of your air compressor- it's probably what Quincy is using to track your order.

We appreciate your business and your willingness to buy American. I believe you will have many years of good service from your Quincy once you get past these initial bumps. Please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help.

Most Impressive Piece Of Equipment
So far I have had little time to use my Quincy as it arrived just prior to an extended trip out of town, but I was most impressed with the details of this machine when I had it in front of me. The little things like the drain arrangement and the 1/4 turn valves for the output air were all signs of a well-designed piece of equipment.

The compressor arrived in just days of ordering. It was very well secured. Set up was simple, wiring instructions were simple to follow. Has performed as advertised without even so much as a hiccup. I have had to turn down the output pressure some because I didn't have a filter/regulator that was capable of more than 150 psi.

I would recommend Air Compressor direct to my friends and definitely purchase from them in the future. The Quincy compressor is working great in my home shop.

Excellent Purchase
I bought this to run air tools, hvlp paint guns, blast cabinet, etc.....i used it first on the blast cabinet. At 90 psi continuous use it builds pressure and cycles off while I'm working.

Runs d/a sander no problem. Right angle grinders also no problem. Best piece of equipment I've bought in years.

Some say its noisy, I really don't think so. Compared to other smaller compressors I have, it's quieter.

I researched many compressors because I wanted something good and that is going to last. I just received mine last week and yet to hook it up. It was a breeze to activate my extended warranty.

The unit is well built and I am sure will be my last compressor for years to come.

Great Compressor For The Home Garage
First off I will preface this with stating that my previous compressor was a 30 gal maintenance free Craftsman @4.5 CFM. This compressor more than meets my needs for bench top sandblasting, powder coating, and automotive air tools. Compared to the old compressor it is much quieter. Inside the house it sounds as if the washing machine is on as opposed to rattling the walls. This surprised me as the motor is 3450 RPM.

I did add an hour meter to keep up with the maintenance and followed the... more

I am glad you are pleased with your compressor! Every freight shipper we work with knows they are supposed to call our customers to set up a delivery day and time- and mostly they do.

I'm so sorry this didn't happen in your case. We will work with the folks at ABF Freight to improve service in your area.

So far, with fairly heavy use, the compressor has exceeded all of the expectations. It arrived in perfect working order, well crated, and easy to set up. It's more quiet than expected. I was tentative about the purchase going in as there are very mixed reviews about it here and elsewhere.

Each of the major parts, like the tank and the motor, are made in America..not just assembled as some others have said of theirs. I assume that this is standard now?

The next test will be to see how it... more

Michael,
Quincy sources as many of it's components as possible from USA manufacturers, and assembles their compressors in America. In order to use the legal term "Made In USA" all of the parts- even wires, bolts, connectors, etc.- must also be made in the USA. That's really hard to do in today's market.

Compressor Is Well Made, Setting It Up Is A Chore
I purchased this as a home owner. I opted for the lift gate service, and unless you have a tractor or a fork lift I would advise you do the same. It came well crated. So well crated I only had about an inch of clearance for height in my garage door when bringing it inside.

After removing the outside crating I had to figure out how to get the compressor off of the pallet. I ended up cutting a side of excess pallet off so I could slide my engine crane over it. There is no readily evident way... more

Beware, this compressor does not have a 50,000 hour pump as the description and 'expert' review state. Take a look at this picture, and you will see it is only 30,000. Talk to Quincy yourself. They will confirm this has been the case for at least 5 years.

We build our website pages based on the promotional material we get from the manufacturers, then we ask the manufacturers to check the pages for accuracy. This one got past both of us.

Thank you for sending the correction to us- we'll update our pages right away!

The folks at Quincy tell us the other QT models are rated at 50,000 hours; the 2V41C60VC is considered an economy model, hence the shorter pump life.

Air compressor worked great and was maintained during the year until one of the screws on the reed valves came loose and wrecked havoc on the valve plates and one piston.

I didn't see an account for you in our database, so I can't tell if you got the Extended Factory Warranty on this unit. The regular Factory Warranty is for 1 year, and it can be extended to 3 years if you purchase the the oil change kits, register the warranty, and do the required maintenance.

If you'd like to contact Quincy directly to find a more polite Authorized Service location, just give them a call at (217) 277-0270 or use their Service Locator.

I got this compressor about a month ago to run a variety of air hammers. These hammers eat up air from 8-15cfm, so I wanted something that could handle this.

When the compressor arrived I got it wired. The first time it turned on it cut out at the correct PSI, but shut itself off also. The second time I turned it on it kept going to 200psi as I watched it- and I turned it off. I drained the tank and tried again, this time I let it go until the relief valves popped open.

Lester,
We are sorry to hear of the issue with the pressure switch on your Quincy air compressor. It looks as if we are reimbursing you in the amount of $50 to offset the cost of the new pressure switch you need to buy. We understand the inconvenience this has caused and hopefully the resolution has helped get your compressor up and running. Here at PED we take pride in handling these cases as swiftly as possible to keep our customers satisfied. Our apologies again and be sure to let us know if there is anything further we can do to help.

Cons: Low Quality, Noisy Poor Quality
Steve, the Air Compressor Expert
Product Expert
Dave,
You may find that adding vibration isolators to the feet will help with the noise, as well as making sure the belt cage doesn't rattle (a cable tie or two will help stabilize it if it is). If it's located in a corner, adding sound-deadening materials (acoustic ceiling tile or foam) to the walls of the corner also help cut down the sound.

We've found that Quincy will offer excellent service to make sure our customers get the best performance from their compressors. I checked our database and didn't see where you purchased your unit from us, so you may want to get in touch with the place you bought the unit and ask them to get their Quincy rep involved.

Steve, the Air Compressor Expert
Product Expert
Shawn,
Most shipments arrive in in the same condition that they left the manufacturer's warehouse, but unfortunately that is not always the case. We ask our customers with freight deliveries to follow these steps when receiving a delivery:
Damaged Products
You must take the time to inspect the goods before you sign the delivery receipt from the carrier. If you sign the delivery receipt without inspecting the shipment you will be responsible for filing a freight claim and arranging for a repair or return of the damaged goods. Concealed damage claims must be reported immediately.

Suspect Damage
On occasion, the outer carton may look damaged, but the product inside the box is perfectly fine. If you suspect concealed damage, notate "Possible Freight Damage" on the delivery receipt while the driver is present. This way, if you discover later that the product is damaged, the remedy of a freight claim is less of a hassle.

Obvious Damage
Do not sign for damaged products. If your product arrives damaged, please (a) REFUSE DELIVERY and (b) Call Us Immediately so we can process the appropriate claims and coordinate an exchange for you.

When a customer takes delivery of damaged items they need to work with Quincy or their local Quincy dealer network for cost of repair and ordering of the parts. The customer would also need to work with the carrier for the reimbursement of the parts cost via a freight claim.
Quincy will not assist in this process.

We appreciate your business and sympathize with your situation. There are specific procedures that our contracts with the compressor manufacturers and freight companies require where damages are concerned, and we need to follow them- that's why we advise customers to refuse delivery of damaged items.

Good Ones Aren't Cheap And Cheap One Aren't Good.
Crating was better than expected.
Compressor fairly quiet
Came with ball valves and gauges--saves a couple $$$.
Moisture dump valve at bottom a very nice feature.
Wiring super simple.

About the only thing that ticked me off--- When I had previously seen these in other shops and at brick an mortar stores they had 4 feet/anchors at the base.
When I received mine there were only 3 feet. Obvious cost-cutting measure... may not be a big deal to most.. but SUBSTANTIALLY decreases the... more

Excellent Compressor In This Price Range
When I do projects, I usually make a point of adding at least one new tool to my toolbox. I have been wanting pneumatics in my garage for a while, and decided to go with a full standing compressor to take on anything I might likely be doing, including nailers, sanders, impact wrenches, bike tires, etc.

The Quincy QT Pro 5-HP 60 Gal Two Stage compressor had high ratings across numerous web sites, and ultimately I decided to buy through Air Compressors Direct in the fall of 2013 to run my... more

Great Compressor
The delivery was on time without damage.

I hard wired it in to a 30 amp breaker checked the oil and turned it on. The pump came complete with the proper level of oil. The pump kicked on and took 6 min to pump from 0 psi. to 150 psi where I had set the pressure relief.

I then realized that the main air supply tube to the tank was loose. I tightened the fitting and the compressor sat for two weeks with no leaks. I was impressed that the compressor built pressure even with a completely... more

Long Overdue Purchase
After a few days of researching 60 gal single stage compressors and not really seeing anything with stellar reviews I decided to spend a little more and get this 2 stage since it had solid reviews. Took a couple weeks to arrive directly from Quincy. Build date on the tag was 3 days prior to receiving it at my house.

Came well crated on the pallet, and the delivery driver was nice enough to wheel it into the garage for me. I was nervous about the weight of it and being able to move it... more

Beat My Expectations
This is a very nice unit and has so far beat my expectations. This runs quiet for a unit of this size, just be sure to use vibration pads.

This was bought with the intention of using it primarily for media blasting. I'm currently running a 90 lb ALC media blaster and this compressor keeps up with no issues. It actually will shut off while I'm still blasting!

Over all very happy with the quality and overall look. Being made in the good ol USA helps too!

Excellent Compressor
I upgraded my shop compressor to this unit from a Craftsman Portable 33 gallon single stage. What a difference!!! I can run any air tools I want and do not run out of air.

It is unbelievable how obnoxiously loud the Craftsman compressor is compared to this unit. I made my decision on this unit based on the reviews from this site.

Excellent quality and price. Shipping was fast also.

After reading many reviews and searching several sites for my new compressor, I decided to buy the Quincy 5HP 60 Gal upright from Air Compressor Direct. Taking their free shipping and no sales tax (for me) into account, they were almost $400 less than Amazon. The unit arrived here in Southern California in about a week in perfect condition.

Great Product
I have a 230 volt Quincy two stage, 60 gallon, vertical, air compressor. I am no longer sure of the model number but it looks very much like the one pictured as Model # 2V41C60VC. I just had to spend about $60 on it to replace the pressure switch and the stationary contact in the motor. The unit has been in service for over 25 years! Obviously I have no regrets about this purchase and can highly recommend it.

New Quincy Compressor
I received my compressor a week or so ago. I had to communicate with The Quincy factory since they didn't have me scheduled for a lift gate delivery. I Had paid for that service and the compressor weighs 500 lbs.

When it arrived the crate was coming apart on two sides, but it looked intact. The driver helped me get it into the building, which I really appreciated. When we got it set down I heard the pump rattle, only to see that the pump was not bolted down. All four bolts were in place,... more

Good Value For The Price
The unit arrived well packaged, so in good condition.

The unit was easy to install with some minor piping to accommodate the line set up from the old unit.

Only running for a week now, so a bit premature to rate such things as durability and quality although it appears to be well constructed.

Somewhere in one review or two a comment was made that it was quiet or maybe they said quieter than their previous compressor. I don't think I would characterize this unit as quiet at all.... more

You may want to try adding anti-vibration pads under the feet to help quiet the unit down. If it's mounted in a corner, adding sound-absorbing foam to the walls will help keep the noise down, too.

I checked the Quincy website for you and they do have a QT-5 Parts Manual available as a free download.

You can either click on the link above, or go to www.QuincyCompressors.com, click on "Download Literature", select "Search Type- Parts Books", and use QT as the keyword. There's quite a bit of other information available, too- including QT model Tear Down & Rebuild Instructions.

Go Big Or Go Home
I haven't had the chance to use my sandblaster with it yet, which is the reason why I got it. But I will never have the worry of running out of air.

Shipping was a breeze. Setup was very easy. People complain of the wiring box being too small- it's a tight fit but it wasn't hard at all. I wired 10 gauge Romex line to a 30 amp breaker, and it purrs like a kitten.

It almost didn't fit in the garage. It's a beast of a machine for a homeowner like me. Go Big Or Go Home.

Only shortcoming is the on/off switch box which is very small and a little tricky to wire but can be done. Extended drain valve is a nice feature.

Can't Beat The Performance
I wanted a more powerful compressor that would fill fast, have enough PSI pressure to run a 3/4 impact, be reasonably quiet, and recover quick enough so I didn't have to stand there and wait for it to catch up.

My new Quincy definitely fit the bill. It'll fill from 0 to 175psi in less than seven minutes, runs very quiet for its size and actually refilled to capacity while using an angle grinder to clean off gasket material.

The power cord/switch box is a little tight but I made it work.... more

Then make another mark (the same width of the key-way on the motor drive shaft) behind the first mark to provide even more... more

I'm sorry to hear you're having an issue with your compressor! You didn't mention where you called, so I'm not sure if you know the Quincy Factory Service location within 20 miles of your zip code can be reached at 855-978-4629; it's in Orlando. Please be sure to have the serial number of your unit handy when you call them; they will need it to process the warranty claim.

If you need a copy of your invoice just click on "My Account" on our website and follow the prompts to print one out.

If you don't hear back from the local folks please let us know at 1-866-437-8002; we will be happy to work with our rep at Quincy to make sure you are well taken care of.

It "outruns" My Blaster Cabinet.
I'm an after work and weekend warrior, not a production shop.

The true test was running the bead blaster cabinet non-stop for quite a while. The compressor would catch up and cycle off for a while. My previous compressor would never keep up and the pump would run hot.

I love it so far.....

Great unit with one exception. The on/off switch would not shut off. It finally worked after "exercising" it 20 times. The cover over it is also kind of cheap and does not fit well.

Good Choice For The $
I use this in the optical field and require 10.5 CFM... not a problem for this compressor of course. However, it uses that 10.5 CFM at about 25 psi of tank storage at a time.

The compressor runs about 2 minutes (to take the tank from 125 psi to 175 psi) so the compressor runs for 2 minutes and is off for about 6 minutes most of the day.

Heads up, you will need to tighten the cylinder head bolt and the inter-cooler lines before the 1st 30 days are up!

Best Compressor For The Money
I must say I'm happy with my purchase, however shipping although free seemed to take forever, 3 weeks if I remember right. Also there were two air leaks. One was the pressure switch assembly wasn't screwed on tightly and leaked. Another was the large nut in the tank itself. When I soaped the area it showed a slow but significant leak. If there was a final inspection of the unit done it was completely ineffective.

Did research on this unit. Bought this unit and the kit for the extra warranty. Shipment came quick and driver was very helpful. Installed where I wanted it and also installed the RapidAir kit in my garage. Runs quiet and never had any issues with this purchase. I did have a question with the tech service and called Quincy direct and found out what I wanted to know. That is why the four stars only.

Several times I have tried to save money by getting a less expensive compressor or a used model. I was constantly plagued by problems and mechanical failure.

Finally I bit the bullet and committed myself to going for a high quality unit. I got the Quincy 5 hp 2-stage vertical 60 gallon model (QT-54 Pro Air).

Fit and finish is excellent. Louder than expected, but very balanced and runs with very little vibration. You can tell that this is truly a 5 horse unit and not "peak horsepower" impostor. If you could see this unit side-by-side with other comparable brands, you would buy this compressor.

They shipped my Quincy compressor quickly at a busy time of year. I had it in 2 days.

It's quiet, compressor charges air very fast. Excellent compressor...

The only downfall was CONWAY out of Springfield, MO. They ship by semi only thus I had meet them at nearest town 10 mi. away. But CONWAY was courteous and did everything to work with me. It turned out to be a good experience. I would recommend them anytime.

Buy Good Quality First... Don't Waste Your Money On Junk
A few years ago I bought a shop compressor and "saved" money by buying a DeV high noise, high RPM, direct drive compressor. I have hated it since the day I bought it. You could not carry a conversation in my 40x50 shop due to the noise. And its air production was not impressive.

A neighboring cabinet shop has a Quincy 5 hp and 80 gallon tank and it was very productive and quiet. I finally bit the bullet and bought a 5 hp, 60 gallon Quincy. Now I am smiling every time it runs.

Great Compressor! (except The Switch)
I would highly recomend to anybody looking to buy a new compressor to seriously consider a Quincy!

Everything about this compressor is quality, except the piece of junk Square-D pressure switch that has virtually no room in it for wiring.

If the cover isn't on box just right it throws off the pressure with which it turns on and shuts off at. I actually had it blow off the safety valve twice because the cover was slightly distorted with wiring and it was touching the mechanism that... more

Really Nice Compressor
Researched many compressors with same specs and chose Quincy for their reviews, pricing and quality.

Just wished they put a lite more time in quality control with the fittings. Had to remove a couple because of air leaks, fittings had no sealer at all on pipe joints. Fixed myself and leak free.

Other than that satisfied, well crated.

I wanted to buy a good, 2-stage, American-Made compressor. I am very happy with the form & function of this compressor, and so far it has worked flawlessly. (Admittedly, it does not get used very hard in my garage).

One thing I can say for sure so far... Filling up truck tires to 100psi is no longer a chore! The only problem I had was with the pressure relief line that goes to the pressure switch. The fitting on the pressure switch is made out of garbage pot-metal. The male threads... more

I just bought this unit and installed it on a 50 amp breaker as required with a 60 amp disconnect my choice. This assures me when the power is off it's off without counting on the compressor switch.

The compressor started right up and ran quiet. I let it run with the tank open for a half hour. The next day I let it fill the tank so I could check for leaks; it pumped to 165 PSI and shut off. I checked it the next day and it was still 165 PSI.

Greaty Compressor
Compressor was delivered on time - I got lift-gate service and they brought it into my garage. Had an issue when I first turned on the machine - the engine started and then died. There was a burning wire smell coming from the pressure switch (on/off switch).

I called Quincy and they recommended a local repair shop called Brehob. They actually came the same day, replaced the pressure switch and the unit has worked great since.

Has To Be The Best Available
I did significant research in evaluating which compressor was best for my needs. There were certainly ones that were less expensive. After receiving and installing this Quincy model # 2V41C60V.

I must say the extra cost is worth it. Not only is the unit far cleaner and more heavy duty than all the other units I evaluated but, I think the extra cost will be returned in far more service life than the other units. Once I did the math it really was a slam dunk.

Delivery was impressive with all the crated material to protect it. Easy to hook up.

Runs quiet and smooth. just wish there was a way to tighten all the head bolts after break in. Some are impossible to get to. Customer service at Quincy instructed me to just not worry about it. I am one to dot all i's and cross tees.

Bought Quincy air compressor based on Internet reviews. Appears to be well made. But, electrical/ switch box is too small and needs to be totally redesigned. It's very difficult to hook up 8 gauge wire. Also, connectors provided don't work for thicker wire, either.

Otherwise, compressor appears well built ...

Love the air compressor, I was never worried about its quality as I know someone who has the same model.

Works great with my sandblasting cabinet- I never have to wait for it to catch up. The only thing I was concerned about was the shipping after reading many reviews about a long wait but I figured it's free so I can wait if I have to.

10 days later it was here, in Colorado, no issues and I couldn't be more pleased.

I am so sorry for the error, and any inconvenience it may have caused! Since the compressor shipped from the factory I didn't get the chance to check the footprint in person.

We pull information by model number, so if the folks at Quincy haven't updated a file, put a unit in the wrong group, or got the model numbers mixed up we will wind up with the wrong information.

Thank you for letting me know so I can work with the folks at Quincy to correct the information.

I could not be happier! I really have zero complaints. If I had to complain about anything it would be that it makes all the other stuff in my shop look old!

I just happened to have to go to chain store the other day and thought that I would compare my Quincy to their "made in USA" model. What a joke! If I were blindfolded, I could tell the difference!

I noticed that some folks were complaining about the size of the pressure switch as far as hooking up power goes; I really... more

Amazing
Replaced a Kobalt 3.7hp 60 gallon. Quincy is in a different class! Runs cool at continuous run unlike Kobalt that was hot all the time including the tank- which made for moisture in lines.

Runs my 4 ft blasting tank like a champ as long as I need to use it. Runs quieter as well.

Quincy is lifetime equipment!

Compressor was shipped ahead of schedule, installation was easy, unit is quiet for its size. Installed it with the 3/4" Rapid Air system in my custom furniture shop. Very good system.

Jury Still Out
Shipping was excellent, compressor runs very strong. My issues are mine has smoke coming out of the vent when compressor runs. Called Quincy and they were very nice and they told me to change the oil and when the rings are fully seated it should stop.

Well I've changed the oil and it has been a couple months and it still smokes similar to the amount a cigarette might put out. Plan on making another phone call soon.

My only other complaints are there is no sight glass for the oil, it's... more

Easy Installation,
After a lot of research, decided to go with the QT Pro. Installation was easy as Quincy provided the wire connectors at the switch. I went to Lowes and bought a set of vibration dampeners for $12 10/2 wiring. Checked the oil, flipped the breaker, and turned it on. Seemed fairly quite. Quincy placed a decal to ensure proper belt rotation which came in handy. I know there's less expensive 60-gallon compressors....hope this one is as good as the reviews stated. Oh, recommend curb side... more

What An Upgrade
We were using a CRAPSMAN, yes I spelled that right, that I rebuilt the compressor pump on that lasted for a few years and now it needed it again and no parts were available for the rebuild, so we purchased the Quincy Two-Stage QT Pro Air Compressor 2V41C60VC.

This compressor is awesome and does everything we need and installation was pretty simple and straight forward. I added a 90 degree fitting on the drain valve. We even received it 2 weeks early. I would recommend this compressor for... more

Awesome Compressor
Needed a two stage compressor for airing my motor-home tires as well as blowing out my underground sprinkler system. This has got air to spare. Easy to hook up electrically, and full of oil and ready to go when it arrived at my house. Well crated, so no shipping damage either.

A Little High Priced But Worth The Money
I received the compressor in perfect condition. Not a lot to hook up to get it started. It worked to perfection when I turned in on. Its the quietest compressor I've ever had.
Pros: High Quality, Quiet, I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use
Cons: Expensive, Heavy

Love The Quincy
Went to local HF to buy compressor but they were out of them. It was my lucky day. Went home and ordered the Quincy. Took a long time to get here but it was well worth the wait.

This thing is very high quality. Very easy to wire up. Couldn't possibly be happier. Great compressor.

Thanks P.E.D.

Quincy Compressor Does The Job
Shipped on time, deliveryman put it right in my garage where I planned to install. Easy to uncrate, made a nice 3 way plug for easy connect and disconnect.

Started right up, nice and quiet. Powers all of my air tools, buffer, DA, sandblaster. Installed an IR regulator which I have set to 90 psi.

Couldn't be more happy with this product, made in USA. So far so good, highly recommend this to anyone to run your garage, I use it for all my hobbies. It replaced my CP 110 volt 6CFM unit which... more

Last Compressor I Will Buy
I was looking for a high quality reliable air compressor and after doing a lot of research I decided on a Quincy- and couldn't be happier.

I knew I was buying a quality compressor but as soon as it was delivered I was even more impressed by how well it was put together. From top to bottom this is the best air compressor I have ever worked with and it performs even better than it looks.

I don't think I will ever need to buy another compressor this one is just so solid.
Pros: High Quality, Durable, Fast, Reliable

You Can't Go Wrong With Made In The Usa
This compressor gleams with pride in workmanship.

I previously had the unfortunate experience of buying a China-made compressor that was delivered damaged, and was made of plastic in several areas. Even the engine block was something other than metal.

The Quincy electrical hookup is easy, and everything is super solid. Runs like a champ!

Keeps Up A Good Air Stream
I bought this mainly to run a blast cabinet. This unit never runs out of air and will actually shut off as it can keep up easily.

I have only had it a little while but I expect it to outlive me.

Seems Like A Fantastic Compressor Thus Far
My brother works at quarry, he uses a similar Quincy compressor every day that he reckons was made circa 1961. Hopefully mine will last half as long.

My other brother worked for Baldor- he says motor is top shelf.

I would agree with the other reviews that the box that houses the contactor / pressure controlled AC relay is way too small.
It was very difficult to get 12 gauge wires in when I should have used 10 gauge but there was no making them fit.

The wiring diagram instructions... more

My New Compressor
I am very happy! It is much quieter than I expected.

The instruction manual states that vertical units should not be mounted on isolation pads. My only complaint is the unit vibrates the concrete floor of my shop, and I'm wondering it shouldn't be on isolation pads. I installed the unit as directed, with the anchor nuts loose from the feet, double-nutted, but not tight on the feet.

Other than that I am very satisfied.

More Compressor Than The Home Handyman Will Ever Need...
After many years spent wishing for a heavy duty compressor, I finally bought a Quincy. I had always thought I'd purchase an IR compressor, but after comparing specs and reviews, I decided the Quincy was a better compressor.

Quincy calls this an "economy" model, but make no mistake - this thing is built to last. Everything about it is quality, from the American made Baldor motor to the 4 cylinder, two-stage compressor. It is well assembled and beautifully finished.

World Class Example Of American Manufacturing
Following approximately 1 year of research and procrastination, I made the decision to go with Air Compressors Direct and Quincy.

In the end my decision was between IR and Quincy and based on various reviews from multiple sites I felt Quincy was the best overall value. I was very surprised to see the compressor arrive at my house in less than one week! Quincy had the unit crated well and so the compressor arrived bright and shiny and without a scratch.

While I did pay for lift gate... more

Quincy+acd=winning
After having a Quincy at the shop, i decided i needed one for my home as well. This compressor may be called the Economy Series but it is by far the best bang for your money.

The motor is a solid Baldor unit and the pump is a cast iron 4 cylinder. The tank could be bigger but that really isn't a deterring factor. I have mine run in series to another 35 gallon tank and the pump doesn't kick on as much.

The noise level is bearable and the duty cycle isn't nuts. The pump compresses the air... more

Quincy Is Quality
I purchased this unit about 4 months ago. It was delivered in a couple of weeks and set up was easy. I did not receive a maintenance kit that I ordered with it. However, I called and one was sent out immediately.

The service was very good and the Quincy definitely meets my expectations. I am a gunsmith and use the compressor quite often doing sand blasting.

I highly recommend this unit to anyone needing a medium duty shop compressor. Don't let the Economy Line mislead you. It might be... more
