Hey! This site is reader-supported and we earn commissions if you purchase products from retailers after clicking on a link from our site.

The Bostitch CAP2000 compressor is typically a job site or small workshop oriented unit, quite portable (about 40 lbs weight), is non-lube, has an upper pressure limit of 150 PSI output, and can produce about 2.8 CFM at 90 PSI.

This model has been superseded by Bostitch. The newer versions look identical to the original Bostitch CAP2000 compressor.

I have received quite a number of questions via the ASK page and the Bostitch compressor forum page about the model CAP 2000, so I have decided that this model of air compressor merits its own page for folks using this air compressor, that may or may not have had problems with them, and would either like to ask a question or to post a comment.

Constant air leak

From where on the compressor, Jimmy?

It will not hold pressure no matter how I position the regulator knob. Pretty sure I need to replace the regulator.

Are you certain the air is leaking from the regulator?

I am trying to remove the black plastic cover from my Bostich CAP 2000 and am having trouvle with the two long screws that go all the way through the lower part of the cover. One end looks like a plain round 1/4 inch rod. The othe end has what looks like a locking nut with a slot across the middle. I have turned these nuts many times. They are sort of loose but will not release from the bolt . Are you familiar with this compressor? Any recommendations? Thank you. Jimmy

Off the top of my head, no. Perhaps someone out there knows about this specific model of Bostitch.
