Eaton Compressors?

Hi guys,

After looking forever and changing my mind a million times I think I have found the compressor I want. I am looking at a 60 gal, 2 stage compressor from Eaton Compressor.

From all of my looking around they seem to be the best built around. The motor runs at 800rpm which is half of the store bought units and it comes with a lot of industrial options. Does anyone have any experience with these units? Pros vs Cons? It's a little pricy but I think it will be worth it in the long run. I also have to add another $175.00 for shipping.

If you have other suggestions or feel I can get one locally, cheaper near my home town that is just as good I would really appreciate it. I am tired of looking. I am in Maryland.

Dont really know much about Eaton. I do know that I have had a Craftsman 3 hp 20 gallon tank for 25 years. It has a cast iron pump and reed valves and still works fine. I am not recomending Craftsman just saying mine has done well and I sand blasted a school bus with it once. The air coming out of the hose was so hot it would almost burn you. If I was buying a compressor now I would get a 2 stage which the Eaton is and I would go vertical Which the Eaton is. I would look at the Quinceys. They are rated the same as the Eaton and I think will cost a hundred or two less. They are rated at 15000 hours pump life. Every once in a while Harbor Freight will have one in their catalog. I am waiting for it to be on sale once and I will get it. The only reason I am upgrading is for the higher pressure of the 2 stage. There has been a couple of times I needed more pressure to get the job done. It will also take up less room as now I have the 20 gallon horizontal tank with a 30 gallon vertical tank next to it giving 50 gallons. One vertical 60 or 80 gallon will be smaller.
