Toy, That 30 AMP rating means that the motor is a true 5 HP unit (probably a Baldor on the Ingersoll) but that does not mean it should produce that kind of performance. 18.1 CFM from a 2 cylinder, single stage pump with 5 HP does not sound even close to right since that is what you would expect, maybe even a little less, from a 5 HP two stage pump which is FAR more efficient than the single stage. 12-13 CFM I might believe considering the true power output of the motor but 18.1 CFM is HIGHLY suspect!
