Breaker Size

What size of an electrical breaker does this require? I have 220 with a 30 AMP one and hoping it will work?
Asked by: CBSOregon
That's what I have mine running on and its fine. You should be good with that.

Does this compressor need a starter for it run . Do you hook 240 directly to motor

Asked by: Bigguy
No, you do not need an external starter....this is an all in one unit. Yes, you wire two 120v lead branches (making 240v) directly to the compressor (it needs to be hardwired...there is no cord)

60-Gal. Vertical, 208/230-Volt Electric Air Compressor is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Band For The Buck!!! Let me start buy saying I own a sand blasting and powder coating business as well as a speed shop. This compressor is quiet compared to my kobalt and ingersol rand. It keeps up with every air tool i have. i have owned it about a month. My only complaints as other have mentioned are the ball valved and the cheap pipe fittings that are rusted and filled with slag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product works exactly as advertised This compressor rocks. I did a lot of research, and actually bought a competitor product that didn't measure up. I am amazed at the amount of air that this compressor provides for the money. The product has a sturdy feel to it, and I expect it will work well for years to come. Thanks, HD, for this excellent product at an excellent price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Compressor for the money; poor design for drain valve, though. This compressor is a good value; we were looking for a relatively high-CFM rate for cabinet sand blasting, and this unit seemed to fit the bill at over 18 CFM. The price jumps dramatically when you look at higher-output units. However, there is what we think is a design flaw in the drain apparatus at the bottom of the tank. Instead of a simple threaded plug, the manufacturers have installed a 1/4" 90 degree black-iron 'street' fitting in the bottom of the tank, attached to a 6" straight pipe, and ending in a ball-valve. While much more convenient for draining the tank, this setup is vulnerable to damage, especially when moving the compressor. The unit was delivered bolted to a pallet. Even with 2 of us, it was difficult to get it off the pallet while being mindful of the drain valve, etc. We thought we got it off the pallet ok, but when we filled that tank, we found that the 90 degree street fitting was cracked, and ultimately broke off. We had to use a spiral bolt extractor to get the remains out of the bottom of the tank, and replaced it with a brass fitting, which also should hold up better to the moisture in the tank. We don't if we broke the fitting, or if it came that way. Unless they put the compressor on the pallet with a crane, I don't know how they could have done it without causing damage. In any case, it was a relatively easy fix. In all other respects, a great unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fair price the brackets that hold the air filters on were defective. All of the fittings leaked air. After calling customer service I called the company that makes them to get replacement parts. They sent me new parts without any problem. I fixed the air leaks myself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great compressor, cheap drain valve Like the other reviewers before me, I found this compressor to be great. It fills up quickly, it's quiet, and it flows a large amount of CFM. After I got it setup I went around and started sealing up miscellaneous leaks; which is to be expected on a brand new compressor... not a big deal. What was a big deal was the drain valve. After applying some sealant to the threads, and reinstalling it, the cheap chinese made 90 degree black iron piece on the bottom of the tank snapped flush. Needless to say I was pretty irritated. I will be replacing this tomorrow with some brass pieces instead. Do yourselves a favor and just replace this part right off the bat; trust me, it will fail eventually anyway.. might as well replace it right away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement for my Speedaire dinosaur... First off, the only reason I'd prefer to give it only 4-stars on Quality is four-fold: [1] The ball valves on the tank outlet and drain seem CCC (cheap China crud). Not sure why they didn't go with heavy quality valves. [2] The decals are just too numerous. I took the Espanol decals and a few others off with ease. [3] I feel like the fan shroud isn't allowing as much air flow off the flywheel as it could. My old Speedaire had the same type of flywheel and it produced a gale-force wind. The Max Air...I don't feel it makes the same big breeze. [4] The three little inlet air filters seem cheap (and I'm a 15yr filter engineer). I plan to upgrade to (3) small FRAM air filters. I've run the compressor everyday for a week and its worked perfect. I've been mostly running a big Trinco bead blast tank which consumes 25cfm @ 80psi and I do not feel like I'm overworking this compressor at all. I do run a box fan on high to cool it down more in between bead blasting runs, but only because I care. Doesn't need it, but I want this sucker to last forever. This MAXair compressor makes 1/3rd the noise my 1995 2-stage 5hp 80gal Speedaire made. Very quiet for its size, indeed. I have to actually stop the bead blaster to listen to see if its running or not. And when my garage doors are shut, I can't hear it running outside (you're welcome, neighbors!). It was delivered upright bolted to a small pallet that was nailed to a regular pallet. I'm 6'1'' 200# and had no issues walking the compressor on its feet onto the floor. Was very nice to arrive ready to run with oil already in it. I love the liquid-filled tank gage, too. Only thing it needed was a plug. I bought the 220v version and the wiring was as simple as it gets. The wiring schematic is right there on the side of the pressure switch housing, easy to read, made perfect sense. Two hot lines and a ground. Done. I plumbed it with a 1/2" tee with a 3/8" line and a 1/4" line out of the tee. PLENTY of power to my impact wrench via that 3/8" line. Also have a regulator/coalescer plumbed on the 3/8" line and inline oilers on my hoses dedicated to tools (not for media blasting or painting). Lastly, I bought (3) 5/8" rubber pads for under the tank's feet. I would 100% recommend this to anyone for a small metal/wood shop for running the basic tools, no more than two tools at once. I honestly wanted to 80gal one but they were out-of-stock then. But have no regrets with what the 60gal is providing. You simply cannot get this amount of air in anything else from the legacy brands for the price AND free curb-side delivery. The Campbell-Hausfields, Ingersoll-Rand, etc compressors the same size are not pushing as much air or don't even advertise output at all, they cost 1.5-2x more, and many of them are simply the same parts with different paint color & branding. Do your homework and you'll see this Max Air compressor is the best buy for the price & quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great air compressor Super compressor, easy to set up. Quiet and plenty of CFMs to keep up with any air tool.
Date published: 2012-09-25
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Its just OK. I read many reviews boasting about this compressor. Its nothing special. Its very loud like any other compressor. It takes a rather long time to build pressure. I dont know if the CFM is really what it says. Mine came set with the pressure switch shutoff at 150psi, and would turn on at 110. It took so extremely long to get from 110 to 150 that I turned the pressure switch down just to reduce its cycle time a tad bit and not have to listen to the thing so much. My air system has ZERO leaks. When I am not using anything, pressure will only fall 8-10psi over the span of the entire day... and thats probably just from the air cooling. It is an OK compressor and I would not say that I am unhappy with it. But, based on the specs and reviews, I was crossing my fingers for something better. Dont get your hopes up, you get what you pay for.
