I'm just up the road from you in Vulcan county and also thought of having one shipped to Sweetgrass.
Prefer to buy a truly US or Cdn. built product but the Eaton features and warranty do have appeal.
About the only real Cdn. built unit would be a DV Systems for more bucks. Prefer to keep my dollars at home or with friends and neighbours and not send any of them to the far east.

|motofan||DONT GET AN EATON,, at least not a 5hp 2stage. I purchased new approx 6 years ago. Replaced the first pump under warranty at 2.5 years.. Replaced pump head again at the 4 year mark. Problem seems to be in the cheap Chinese valves. My final fix was to find a Dayton Speedair compressor with a bad motor and use that pump on the Eaton. This Eaton was the model with the 2 cylinders inline, I am not sure if the "V" design pump is any better or not. My recomendation is to spend the $$ and get a Quincy..|

have 2 eaton comp
I have 2 of the 10hp screw type compressors. They are running in a work environment 60 hours a week for about 5 years. They ran around the clock for about 12 months. The compressors have never required any maint. except oil change. The electric motors have both required bearing replacement. The electric motor quality is lower than the rest of the unit, and they look a lot like ones that are made in China. Except for this bearing issue, they are good units and are certainly more efficient to run that the old Gardner Denver units they replaced. Parts service is fair at best.

You might check out what wikipedia has to say about that, casting some doubt on the liklihood of that ever happening in the forseeable future....

Are you going to apologize, Mr. Cain?
Or are you just going to copy-paste some kindergarten spin onto this forum?

From the desk of Matt Cain, President/CEO of Eaton Compressor
My name is Matt Cain President and CEO of Eaton Compressor and Fabrication. I would like to share with the public a little bit about the history of my company and the values and principles that guide Eaton Compressor today.
At the age of nine I began working with my father who founded the company in 1977. I am proud of the growth and support of all my loyal customers over the years.
The dialogue on any forum is a great way for the buying public to obtain information regarding any number of products, with that said I would like to directly address the public with information regarding Eaton Compressor and Fabrication and our line of products.
Here at Eaton, we understand that quality is the key to growth and success and my goal is to offer the highest quality product at a competitive price, it’s that simple.
Here at Eaton we have experienced growth that will allow us to build a new factory and create jobs here in Ohio. One of my greatest levels of satisfaction is seeing my Eeployees together with their families and knowing that they rely on the jobs here at Eaton Compressor for their lively hood.
I would like to invite the buying public to compare my product with any product in the industry. In an effort to assist the buying public, I have put an attachment on my website, called the “product disclosure form”. Feel free to present this form to any company selling compressors, including us here at Eaton. This form will allow you to compare everything about the unit including where every component is manufactured and how it’s built inside and out.
If you would like to discuss this issue with me personally, feel free to call me any time at 937-***-****, this is my personal cell phone number! I will be more than happy to discuss this issue or any issue regarding Eaton Compressor and Fabrication.
Thank You and God Bless,

That would affect my buying decision as well. Help your neighbor (even one in another state) keep his job by buying American!
I suggest we start hoarding American made vise grips. Fbleepk the chinese and their crap.

[QUOTE=stepside454]alot of wheels, ironically including American Racing Wheels come from China. [QUOTE]
I beg to differ, my Torque Thrust wheels are NOT made in China. When I was looking for wheels for my 34 I was torn between Cragar SS and American Torque Thrust. The deciding factor was when I discovered Cragar is made in China. Some American Racing wheels may be made in China, but not my Torque Thrust's.

I work with weapons at work and am kind of a history nut, so I've done a bit of research into weapons manufacturing. Not sure it applies for other manufactured items, but for weapons one way of getting around import laws is there is a certain amount of parts allowed to be used from, say, China or Russia, as long as the remainders are made in America. This allows the weapon to be branded 'made in USA', allowing the company to sell for a higher price, build for a lower price, and sell a model that would otherwise be illegal to import.
It makes me question 'made in USA' products that I see for sale.

That's about $5.75 more than they will pay in China!

|onebadmerc||I hear that Western Forge in Colorado Springs has shut down, they use to be a manufacturer of Craftsman pliers and adjustable wrenches. I guess it just costs Craftsman too much to have a American Company make tools for them. I applied there about 10 years ago and their starting wage was like $6.00 hr., it wasn't enough for me to commute one way 35 miles a day, so I passed on the job. If a company like this pays barely above minimum wage how can it be too expensive for a larger company to purchase their products???|
