Nice Little Compressor
Our company used the larger, wheel barrow style Rolair gas compressor and we were very happy with the quality but it took 2 employees to load onto a truck.
These compressors can be loaded or unloaded by 1 person and still have plenty of capacity to run two air nailers.

I'm sorry you're having trouble starting your compressor. Our rep at Rolair said it sounds like you are flipping the toggle on the pilot valve "up". With the toggle up, it tells the engine to go to idle mode, unless there is not air in the tank. Which makes sense why you could start the unit with no air in the tank. He says you should leave the toggle down, there's no reason to flip that up.
He also suggests that you should start the compressor with an empty tank. One, it will drain the moisture out and two, it is easier on the engine and pump until they both get warmed up.
If these tips don't help, please give the folks at Rolair a call at 920-349-3281- they will help you troubleshoot, and can refer you to Warranty Service if needed. Please also have the serial number of your compressor handy when you call them.
