        Efficiency and quality construction are the hallmarks of this 2-stage compressor from Ingersoll Rand. High-efficiency is what Ingersoll Rand strives for. These high-efficiency features include: an intercooler that lowers compressed air temperature and reduces condensation, stainless steel valves, and inlet air filters with sound attenuation baffles. With all these components, you're looking at a longer pump life. This unit is perfect for applications where air demands need to be consistent. The over sized bearings and belt wheel deliver 100% duty cycle air power when and where you need it. As always with IR, you can count on all units being thoroughly tested prior to shipment. Lastly, take Ingersoll Rand's 1 year Factory Warranty and bump it to 2 years with the purchase of their start-up kit. You're going to need the oil since these compressors ship dry. Why not kill to birds with one stone?

        Expert Review
        Large and in-charge: that sums up this 2-stage unit from Ingersoll Rand. It's a Fully Packaged unit- that means it has everything you need for constant demand, dry air as well as low maintenance. We're talking an aftercooler already mounted and piped, a low oil level shutdown switch, an electric drain valve, dual control for start/stop or constant speed, and a relief valve/discharge ball valve. If an air compressor runs cooler, it will last longer. Deep finned cylinders along with oversized bearings and belt wheel combine for reliable, durable performance. These units are made in the USA, and are fully pre-wired and thoroughly tested prior to shipment. Ingersoll Rand has been around for over 135 years- it's no surprise that they are really good at what they do.
