Answer: 
To change the wiring from 120v to 240v remove the neutral in the panel and hook it to a double pole breaker sized correctly for the circuit... After wiring the motor for 240v follow the diagram on the motor. If the wire size is too small (14awg is only good for 15A,12awg=20a,10awg=30a etc. the nec table 310.16 will help with wire size)switch out the wire to the correct size and that's it.remember you do Read More

Answer: 
You have answers that are correct. Here is an EXPLANATION. One horsepower is about 750 Watts for easy math. 3 HP is therefore about 2250 Watts. Even though this is an alternating current motor and we don't know the efficiency or power factor, we can divide 2250 Watts by 240 volts to get a MINIMUM required amperage of 9.4 amps (actual is likely to be 14 amps). So if you were able to buy a 100% efficient Read More
You have answers that are correct. Here is an EXPLANATION. One horsepower is about 750 Watts for easy math. 3 HP is therefore about 2250 Watts. Even though this is an alternating current motor and we don't know the efficiency or power factor, we can divide 2250 Watts by 240 volts to get a MINIMUM required amperage of 9.4 amps (actual is likely to be 14 amps). So if you were able to buy a 100% efficient motor that would run on 120 volts, it would draw at least 18.8 amps (twice as much as on 240 volts) to run this motor. Since a 20 amp breaker should be at about 80% load, no more or it starts to heat and will eventually trip, you will find that 18.8 amps is 2.8 amps higher than 16 amps (80% load factor). You also must realize that even ECM motors are not 100% efficient. Your actual amperage on a 120V PSC motor will be around 28 amps. Also the start current will be considerably more. For this amperage on 120 volts you need at least 8 gauge wire too. There are single pole breakers readily available for this application (minimum 28/.8 = 35 amps), but why go to the trouble wiring 8 gauge wire when you could run 240 volt on 12 gauge for much less money.

Many of the answers posted to this question should only be done IF you understand and have experience/training on what you need to do. ALWAYS follow the ELECTRIC CODE; it's there because people die or buildings burn down because it wasn't followed. The code is difficult to understand unless you have been trained how to use it. The suggestion that you use two wires from opposite sides of the electric box will not work with circuit breaker boxes because the breakers on each side alternate which feed is used. Doing what the poster stated could create a problem (fire, destroy the compressor, fire, etc) you don't want to deal with.
Based on the way you worded your question, I suggest that if you decide to purchase this compressor, hire an electrician. While he's there, he can provide a couple of extra 240v outlets for you because if you need a compressor this big, you probably need some other 240v tools.

BUT, the breaker from each side must have the same amp rating, and it must be big enough to run the compressor, or the breakers will trip, on start up, which is when you get the most current pull.. Also, you can run a feed line from the main breaker, which is a 220-240 volt main feed, to a second box, and instal a 220 volt 30 to 60 amp breaker, what ever the compressor calls for, and run the 220 volts from that.... If you have any doubts about doing this, call an electrician.! If you do it WRONG, you can burn down your house, or get KILLED..! At the very least, get a book and read up on wiring..

I have chosen to leave mine bolted to the original shipping pallet and I have added a strap to the block wall, much like I would strap a welding tank. The compressor does not walk or move, and did not before I installed the strap. I would advise you to pad the steel legs before bolting to a wood floor solely for the purpose of protecting the floor material. If you have some 16 gauge or heavier steel you could fashion four protective plates of about 4x4 or larger with a central hole for each bolt. If you have access beneath the floor via crawl space or basement you may also wish to add some blocking where the bolts will go. Otherwise use a lag bolt into a pre-drilled hole at each leg.

I figured if it is good enough to survive the rigors of shipping, it is good enough for the vibrations. Which this compressor does not have much of. Just make sure you use a flexible line to the wall, if you are running piped lines. This will probably help spread the weight out more evenly across you floor, perhaps on top of multiple joists. Bolting the bare feet down would probably mean either just having it attached to your plywood floor (I'm guessing), or not quite where you want it.

If you wish to bolt it for stability a wooden floor, providing it is strong wood such as a well supported 3/4" sub floor it is fine, and actually has an added benefit of the wood's ability to absorb some vibrations. I have not mounted mine to my garage floor which is level concrete, as this model is heavy enough and balanced enough to work just fine against a wall where nothing will be around it to tip it.
If I ever do choose to hard mount it, I will place dampeners of hard rubber between it and the floor with the bolts going through them. That way vibrations and some sound dampening will help the noise levels. If my unit was in the middle of the garage floor and not against a wall, I would definitely mount it to the floor.
Btw, I have this unit for approx. 7 months now and used through one PA winter and it has worked very well for small things like inflating tires as well as such things as Plasma cutting and using an air die grinder which I was unable to use with my previously lower CFM air compressors. Read Less

60 Gal. Stationary Electric Air Compressor is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 122.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall satisfied A little louder than expected. On/off pressure switch will only accept SJO cord. Do not plan on running MC or any other type of wire. I installed a 220v 20 amp twist lock receptacle and made a short cord with a twist lock plug for my setup. The compressor does have some adjustability on the pressure settings which is a plus. Pay attention to the tank orientation when installing. If you follow the manual you will have a real hard time changing the belt. I placed mine so the intake side faces the wall (meeting the required clearances) and the other side (motor) faces out into my garage space. That leaves plenty of room to remove the belt cover for easy access. Fill time is reasonable. I would definitely recommend this unit for any home workshop.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from "So far so good" I use this compressor in my DIY shop. I've rebuilt my truck its motor and painted numerous parts and panels. It ran all my air tools, paint guns, and sanders. The recovery is sufficient. Granted it won't give you unlimited air you have to pace your self and your work. If I had the room and money I would prefer the 80gal. I haven't attempted to operate two air tools. you will spend some extra money on the setup. I'm very happy so far with this compressor. Con- the drain valve was always hard to use and completely failed less then a year. Remedy for that is the husky drain valve extension kit.

I did not mount it the floor as I am not sure what its permanent location will be at this point so I took a few of the review peoples advise and left it bolted to the pallet and it seem to be fine that way, no movement at all. This replaced my portable Porter Cable twin tank 4 gal compressor that couldn't keep up with my gravity feed paint gun. With this compressor I can spray non stop and never run out of pressure, what a difference and stress reliever. I can spray for several minutes before it even kicks on the pump to replace used air. Follow the directions and make sure to run the break in steps. I also bought the 3 year warranty just to be safe after reading a couple of the reviews, hopefully I wont have to use it ever. The bottom line is I am very happy I made this purchase and this so far is a GREAT compressor. My one recommendation for improvement would be that the place where you bring in the 220 line will not accommodate a locknut, I ran flexible conduit from a pull out disconnect box but was unable to use a locknut on the compressor side, I thought this was odd.

Main reason for purchasing was to upgrade the 2.5h 25gal with one. I starting using my Harbor Freight Sandblasting floor standing cabinet. The 25gal just couldn't keep up. The 60gal does a nice job allowing continuous 90psi so I can blast without stopping. Like I said worth the money hands down!

Bought this compressor and at the very first start up, it started spraying compressor oil all over the garage. I opened the back door to block some of the spray during my second use and it was covered after about an hour of reasonable use. I called the service provider and you should have heard the sigh the woman let out when she told me that these units are junk and I'll always have problems with it. So, I guess I'm returning it and looking at a Dewalt instead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Compressor I bought this compressor for use at my barn. As other reviews have indicated, it's a good idea to check the oil level for the pump prior to the breakin run, mine was over filled also. One other review suggested changing out the drain plug for the tank. This IS a great idea & makes draining the tank after use a cat's meow! I bought all the 1/4" brass fittings to do this at Home Depot. I used one 1/4" elbow male to female to replace the plug, two 1/4" brass pipes 4" long ea. with a coupling & added a 1/4" ball valve on the end with another elbow to direct the discharging air toward the floor. It works absolutely great and very much easier than trying to twist the small drain knob with your fingers up under the compressor...
