Rolair "Bull" slow to start some times...

I have a Rolair "Bull" series portable compressor that I Use out on construction jobs.

It has been slow to start or restart on occasions.

Enough that I replaced it with a Dewalt one.

I would like to get it fixed to have as a backup.Do you think it is the capacitor and how can you test it?Thanks. Jody
If you are using an extension cord, make sure it is a heavy gauge, or don't use one at all.

Could be the cap. See the page on this site about testing the cap for help in how to do that.
