I'm looking for a 250hp, 125psi, @1200cfm, Air Compressor that will be stationary in my plant. What is the best all around compressor?


I'm trying to determine which brand to purchase. I'm partial to Sullair but am open to other brands.

Best all round compressor?

John, your question is one that's asked by almost everyone that has ever had to decide what compressor to buy for their plant.

What first has to happen is to determine for you what are the criteria for your compressor?

Obviously HP and flow, but what about after sales service, what's the best warranty, who is closest in terms of getting help when you need it.

I was assigned a project a couple of years ago to do exactly what you've asked me to do here for a local company. It took me a couple of weeks of digging to find out what was important to the client.

No, it wasn't the price, it was the brand of compressor that had a local 24 hour service dealer that could be relied on getting the compressor back up and running in the shortest possible time that was their most important criteria.

Perhaps you might look at the list of criteria found on this site, right here: about-air-compressors.com/buying-an-air-compressor.html for some guidance.
