Motor bogs down
by Jeremy luckadoo
1.8hp 30gal. Kobalt cast iron compressor. Motor starts fine, then at 20psi. It boggs down as if under a heavy load. Compressor reaches preset max. Is this normal? I own four different compressors from pancake to 100gal. None of them do this. My best description is it acts like a two stage hydraulic pump. Thank you for your time and this site.
