Apologies, but I don't have any info but the pics. A buddy found it on a job site and the foreman said he could keep it. He wants to give it to me, but I don't know much about it.


Will 110 support this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Missing?

Only to check the motor wiring for voltage setting.

If it's set 220 and you plug in 110, that won't hurt, but if it's set 110 and you put 220 on it - not good!

(I'm jealous.)

Oh, and you probably want to check the intake air filter, too.

Ok, great. Thanks for the info. I appreciate it.

I think for a freebie, it's hard to say no to this.

I'm having a dedicated 220 line installed in the garage for my welder. Will probably just run a cord to this thing in the corner.

The plan is to give it a good once-over.

1. Check oil
2. Check blow off valve for function
3. Run up to 50 PSI and make sure it holds

Anything I'm missing? I was going to buy a regular 120 Husky Compressor or something, but this seems too cool to pass up.

Thanks!

Kudos on the pix.

Yes, the motor plate says it'll work at 110, but you'll need a 30 amp circuit for it, as it draws 22 amps at 110.

It might run for a few minutes on a regular 20A circuit, but probably trip before it would reach cutoff.

If you need to run a new circuit anyway, you'll want it to be 220 - cheaper.
