Q: Will this compressor run a 3/8" impact gun?
by Charles Jenkins from Florida on April 26, 2016

A: An air tool requires air flow to work.

Think of a windmill. A slight breeze lacks the power to turn the blades. However, a hurricane-force wind can generate substantial power.

Some air tools consume more air than others. Nailers and staplers require a puff of air. Sandblasters and sanders need massive gusts.

So, you basically want to know how fast the air comes out of the compressor. The air flow is measured in Cubic Feet Per Minute (CFM). The greater the flow -- the greater the power.

You simply select an air compressor that exceeds the CFM of your most powerful air tool. If the flow isnít strong enough, the air tool simply wonít perform properly.
We recommend sizing the compressor 1.25-1.5 times the CFM of your tool for continuous operation. If the compressor does not produce enough air volume, CFM, then the pressure will drop.
Reciprocating (Piston) compressors are not designed for continuous or 100% duty cycle. The compressor will cycle off & on if it is sized correctly.
Some air tool manufacturers state a minimum CFM & a much larger working CFM specification. Use the working and/or continuous CFM rating when sizing the air compressor.

Q: Does your comressors work from the 240V (in Europe)? It meens that I would like to buy it for Switzerland...
by Igor from Alaska on April 19, 2014

A: All of the equipment we sell is designed for 120V/240V 60 Hz AC power. They are not compatible with the 220V 50 Hz current used in Europe & Africa.

Rolair calls this model The Bull with good reason- it's a portable compressor with a 100% duty cycle. That earned it our "Better" rating and means it can work as long as you can, without missing a beat.

The contractor-grade components include stainless steel reed valves and a cast iron cylinder along with an adjustable regulator to suit a variety of air tools.

The Bull ships with oil for the crankcase, so it's ready to work as soon as you unpack it.

From The Manufacturer
Workaholic
The FC2002, or "The Bull" as we call it, is a 2-HP, twin stack workaholic. This compressor was designed with the contractor in mind. It is built to run every day of the week and overtime on the weekend.

It is our #1 selling hand-carry unit, and for good reason. The high-speed 2-HP pump/motor puts out 4.1 cfm @ 90 psi- plenty of air to run any gun you need. The compact tank design makes this compressor easy to move to and from the jobsite and wonít take up much storage space.

Wish It Ran Out Of The Box
Received compressor with hope to have no issues. It would not turnover when switched on. Motor hummed and reset tripped. I called and was transferred to Rolair where they gave me warranty service centers.

After hours of spinning motor by hand and running and spinning again when it would stop before completing a full cycle, I finally had it cycle normally. When it stopped during a cycle, it seemed like the motor had tightened up. Will try to cycle again, if it doesn't work I guess I will... more

Excellent Compressor
We bought this compressor for our son for his birthday. He loves it and it works great.

When it came time to purchasing a compressor for our business we knew exactly which one we wanted. When we need more we will be sure to buy this again.
Pros: High Quality, Durable, Price, Exceeded Expectations

One Week Later, And I Still Haven't Been Able To Use It!
I actually received this item two weeks ago, but was unable to try it out until last week. Upon firing it up, it pumped up quickly as expected, but as soon as it shut off, I noticed the safety pop off was leaking air. I pulled the ring to release some air and maybe get it to seat properly, which it didn't, so I promptly notified Air Compressors Direct that morning, and was directed the following morning to call Rolair directly, which I did.

After explaining the problem, they asked if I... more

I'm sorry you're having issues with your air compressors- two faulty units in a row from Rolair is very unusual, and I'm sure they will do their best to have you up and running as soon as possible.

Excellent Product
I had read most of the reviews, and had some solid recommendations from knowledgeable folks, so I knew what to expect. The Bull arrived on time and was complete.

There was some lube oil residue and some minor discharge upon initial start up, but once cleaned up there were no leaks. Once the lube oil was topped off, everything ran perfectly and charged the tanks quickly and more quietly than I anticipated, no leaks on overnight test.

In my shop I connected the Bull to a 10 gallon... more

Great Compressor. Quiet. Pumps A Lot Of Air Fast
I was looking for a compact compressor that was not deafening and this is it. I like the individual tank drains.

The book says it starts good at 40 degrees and warmer, I would say it is more like 50 degrees. My next move is to change the oil to as thin a synthetic oil that is recommended to see if it starts better in cool temperatures.

I don't like having to reset the motor multiple times to get the motor to run up to speed in cool temps.
Pros: Fast, Easy To Use, Quiet, Durable
Cons: doesn't start easily in cool weather

Outstanding Buy
I could not be happier with the product or the service. Unit arrived fast and I put it to work minutes later- came with oil and the coupler many reviewers said would be missing was on there too.

I just put on some thread tape on the connections and my hose and went to work. Price was very fair and free delivery plus no sales tax-- can't beat it.
Pros: High Quality, I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, Price

Great Compressor, Great Vendor!
I've only had the compressor about a month, great so far!

Note, the bleed valves on the tank have been changed to brass finger operated valves which are much better than the ones you have to open with a wrench that end up getting rounded off over time.
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Heavy, A bit heavy, but not a big deal

The Bull Air Compressor... Great Machine!
Compressor was delivered very quick! Cost is very acceptable because I needed a compressor for operating air nailers. The twin drain valves are a nice touch too.

I would have bought a much higher CFM if I was going to use it for impacts. That is NOT what this compressor is for. It is a semi-lightweight compressor for air nailers and inflating. It comes up to pressure very quickly and is not very loud.

Cycle time is very quick....about 15 seconds. Perfect for 90% of what I do.
Pros: High Quality, I'd Buy It Again, Price, Easy To Store
Cons: None
