Sorry to revive this old thread but I have a sanborn 60Gal 2 stage compressor and its begining to take a long time to build up pressure. I have taken the topend off and the cylinders look great. the valve plate look a little worse for wear would it help to replace them?? or any other ideas?

I'm a little late for this conversation. I have a friend with a roll back. It works great to unload heavy loads. Just back up to my truck, wench it on the roll back then let it down. With straps it even worked to unload a 30" bandsaw and a milling machine. Both very top heavy.

Air compressors.

Noticed all the talk about air compressors. For small to medium shop owners, I very much recommend the Eaton 3 cyclinder 80 gallon. For everything you get with this compressor, they far exceed all others. Look at the cfm. 37.5!!! Along with that, super quiet, especially nice when the compressor is in your work area. You can stand by this machine, while it is running, and have a conversation on your cell phone. I dont know of any other manufacture of a piston pump compressor putting out this much, for that kind of money, And Ive done research for 3 months. Most others max out at the 17 to 21 cfm range, with out the long warranty of the eaton. I just ordered my Second Eaton, 1st being sold with my shop in florida,

take care and good luck

The Eaton is a good compressor and there has been many good reviews here on them but you are getting pump displacement confused with output CFM, The Eaton is good but it does not produce 37 CFM.
