Alton Information

Alton Industries, the company that I believe originally offered Alton air compressors, has been “has been dedicated to building performance-driven, and reliable products in the power tool industry”.

Having said that, I wonder if they actually “build” anything, but simply source them from a host of manufacturers worldwide, and then have those sources private label the products they so choose?

Certainly, all of the compressors they offer now are of the Briggs & Stratton brand, and they sure seem to sell a lot of stuff that suits many different manufacturers.

If I’m wrong, and Alton Industries has nothing to do with the Alton air compressors brands, I would like to be corrected.

Regardless, this page is for the Alton brand of compressors and offers owners and users alike a chance to post questions about their Alton compressors, and to ask for help.

Is there a oil drain plug for Alton model 1204-6

Looking for a manual for a ALTON AT 01105

John, if it looks anything like the photo at the top, the manual for the Alton AT01204-6
is as close as you’re likely to get.
And if you need parts, the manual is not going to be helpful, anyway.

What did you need to know, anyway? Post pix if you’re uncertain of terminology.
We can probably help, depending on what’s wrong.

I’m looking to see if the engine is oiled or not. If it’s oiled, I need to know where to check it at. Also this is a dual tank system.

John, maybe you could send some pix of the thing, and we can tell. Otherwise, if it’s even a bit like the one above, if you were to turn it so the gauges were away from you, so you could see the silvery end, there would be a sight glass if it’s oiled. Otherwise it’s probably oil-free.

But again, pix, if possible, just for reference.

Pics as requested

OK, so it’s not the one above.
But we need to see the guts of the thing.
Can you get the cover off? That’s where the sight glass would be, if it has one. I’m thinking maybe it’s oil free, given the cover…but you never know for sure until you look.
