Maybe that has something to do with the name change? The REAL Eaton may have gotten enough flack from irate customers of the phony Eaton to get their attention to the name game? Probably not since Eaton compressor is just a tiny player in the corporate world and probably of no concern to a company like the real Eaton but then who knows what with the internet and all?
Ah so. You are correct. I was thinking Eaton Corporation. I did not know there was an independent Eaton Compressor company. Thanks for the correction.

Just sayin'....

Ugh, Eaton is one of those companies. They purchased Cooper Industries and moved corporate HQ to Dublin, Ireland because the tax rates are much lower and they could use those savings to help purchase Cooper.

The U.S. Has become so manufacturer unfriendly that it is almost impossible to ignore the other options. You couldn't open a new foundry operation in the U,S. If you wanted too....or at least a profitable one. The ones still operating are grandfathered under EPA regs and the ones that closed during the Great Recession can't be re-opened.

TJP Another company practicing the same strategy is Hein Werner. I bought one of their 3 ton made in usa floor jacks and it began leaking on day 3 of use. They sent a replacement hydraulic unit. It was still in its rice paper box with Shinn Fu mfg. all over it. It lasted 3 weeks.
A bit of research showed that a company had bought the rights to use all the old well known floor jack names and were pumping them out ( pun intended) with overseas parts and using the "made in USA" loophole. Wound up with an OTC Floorboss and a Milwaukee (OUCH) but they are both working well

BuzzLOL . About the best can be done is send something back immediately if it arrives with Made in China on it when expecting Made in USA quality... guy over on Ford trucks forum got a Weiand Ford 400 intake right after switch from USA to China parts... it wouldn't even bolt on, hit the thermostat housing... he sent it back and they found a NOS USA unit for him... the company didn't know it would be from China because of drop shipping...

Ghetto Jet Somehow I missed all this, but I will never buy one of their products now. Matt Cain is a giant ******.

Pretty funny, if you Google "Matt Cain Eaton" this is #2 on the list. I'm sure plenty of family and friends have seen it. haha

TJP Just found this site and joined due to the subject matter, Specifically Eaton compressors
I bought one of their units 5 years ago. It has puked 2 pumps and 3 switches in 4.5 years. After 2.5 years it took a bit of arm twisting to get them to honor the 5 year warranty
The unit it replaced was a 15 year old craftsman 2 stage that had performed flawlessly under the same use/conditions, IE: I did nothing to it other than service it regularly.
The eaton was supposed to have more CFM but running my blast cabinet said otherwise. HMMM Blast cabinet???? yeah they eat AIR . OK so after learning the "EAT ON" unit was only rated for a 20% duty cycle I was somewhat disappointed I am assuming that is why the unit has had an appetite for pumps, .
So it is out of warranty and I am now in the market for a RELIABLE compressor "think QUNICY". It won't be an eaton.

I was watching an old episode of Bob Villia the other night. Never bothered to watch his show other than his recurring charecter on Home Improvement. Anyway, the power of Youtube and bordem. It was on shipping container houses, and the creator of the houses/ company said that the US is no longer a manufacturing country, hence the millions of abandoned shipping containers. Pretty sad

. Figures lie and liars figure...

. If the Eaton motor and pump are made in China and the tank in USA and they are claiming 60% USA Made, so can have a 'Made in USA' sticker on it, they must be measuring in inches... height of tank is 60% of height of tank/motor/compressor... LOL!

. Japans Nikkei 225 stock market index has fallen from like 80,000 long ago to only 15,728 today... but our DOW is highest ever at 17,000's... much higher than the 6,000's BushJr. dragged it down to from the near 12,000 he got it at...

shine depends on how you rate it. per capita japan leads , china is the #1 exporter . we have lost entire industries over the years. a lot of the manufacturing counted here is just assembly with parts made in mexico and elsewhere. the only country with a higher tax rate is japan . which is what is crippling them now. it is one of the big issues with their new government .
