Found on Craigslist, guy wants $175. Its a 5HP 230v Two-Stage Compressor, I can't find any info on the Factor Air Products label but I do find the model number and it comes back to newer C-Aire Compressor.


It appears it 1986, do you think it being that old its worth it?

It still runs fine, everything seems good on it, wonder what kind of CFM it produces,? The pump looks the same as the newer ones which says 17cfm @ 175 PSI.

I also don't know if its missing a magnetic starter.

Generic Pump on this compressor
by: SM Edwards

Its a chinese pump, Chinook used to be the trade name, but they sell these to anybody that wants to brand their own stuff.

These are throw away units for the most part.

That said if it works and you are not going to run it everyday its not a horrible price.
