If it's a Condor pressure switch you need to turn the knob to increase/decrease pressure

To adjust differential you need to push down on knob while turning to increase/decrease

Before you adjust any pressure settings check the nameplate to see what maximum pressure is allowed, do not exceed it

This unit usually has an Allen-Bradley pressure switch, adjust the settings to achieve desired pressure

125 PSI

125 PSI is high for an air wrench.

Better to get a bigger tool. You have plenty of air, which is where the power for impacts comes from.

Low pressure GA111
by: Bill

I believe this air compressor comes factory set for an output of 150 PSI.

If yours is topping out at 100 PSI, and you haven't done something to change the pressure settings, then I suspect a maintenance / mechanical issue needs to be addressed.

Not sure off the top of my head, but why would you want to do that? You'll increase power consumption considerably doing that.
