Campbell Hausfeld 6.5 HP 60 Gallon stalls out and motor will click on and off

I have a 6.5 HP Campbell Hausfeld 60 Gallon single stage compressor. It builds pressure to 80PSI then starts to stall out. The motor will click on and off and do this up until to finally shuts off at 100 PSI. What's the cause of this? It just bought it used from someone.

I presume this is on at least a 20A 240V circuit -

What is your set-up for the power - volts, amps, plugs (if any), distance from main breaker, wire size(s)?

Can you get a voltmeter across the supply near the compressor and give the voltage with the motor running and not running?
