I am looking at purchasing one of these compressors. They all appear to be made by the same company.Is there any difference? They all have same cfm,same tank size.Two have dual voltage motors.One has 1/2 inch air outlet instead of 1/4 inch.Any advice would be appreciated .thanks

It is my opinion that low cost compressors are actually manufactured by only a few companies in the world, and those companies brand them for whatever "compressor company" they are building them for.

So, it is quite possible that two different brands of air compressors have the same source, and are, except for cosmetic differences, exactly the same.

So, if I'm looking for a new compressor, and it appears that the compressors I want are similar, compare the differences. Which has a better warranty? Which has a demonstrable source of spare parts when you need them? Who will fix the compressor when it breaks? These are the criteria I would use.

Cheers,

Bill

quincy - one relief valve is blowing off on one head

qt-15 one relief valve is blowing off on one head the head is much warmer then the one that is not blowing off any idea what is causing this?

Tom, just a semi-educated guess? Is it the second cylinder where the PRV pops? If so, look to the intake valve or high pressure valve failing on that cylinder.

compressor will run fine until it reach about 130 lbs in tank then some timen it will slow down. I thougt it was the motor , put on new one same problem.

Brad, that it only slows down sometimes suggests to me that it was a run capacitor or wearing out motor that might be the issue.

Dump the air, clean the intake filter if you have one, and disassemble, clean, and reassemble the check valve.

Let us know if this works, will you. If not, I think it will be motor and capacitor load-test time.

Cheers,

Bill
