5hp Sanborn Black Max Air Compressor

by Craig
(Birmingham,AL)

I have recently purchased a 5 hp sanborn black max air compressor 60 gal. It didn't have a owners manuel with it and I need to change oil in it, have been told I could use 30 weight non detergent oil in it, is that right? Also do you check the oil level with the dip stick screwed in or out. Thank You Craig

What oil in Sanborn
by: Bill

In the absence of a manual, and for an air compressor out of warranty, I always default to an oil that is labeled air compressor lubricating oil.

I typically check the compressor oil level with the oil dipstick screwed all the way in.
