Quincy air compressors

I just got a new Northern Tools catalog and they now carry Quincy air compressors! While these are not exactly cheap they are priced about like an Ingersoll Rand and all are two stage. These are a different design pump than the older models which were legendary for dependability (mine is about forty years old and it just keeps going and going! ) but if their reputation is an indicator these should be an excellent compressor for those who want the best. These outfits have large slow turning pumps and heavy motors that along with other quality parts should last a long time even in heavy service. Quincy is an old name in compressors and one of the most respected in the industry so anyone in the market for a good two stage outfit can now find it as close as Northern Tool.

Cool find, O.R. I would like to print some of the info you guys share on air compressors and post it at the local Home Depot and H.F. next to the junk they sell there. I don't think they would let me do that though...

Wow, a 50,000 hr rated pump If I didn't already have my Eaton I would seriously look into that one though the Eaton will probably outlast me given the amount of use it gets. That rating is higher than I have seen on a piston type compressor. For the price of 2 big box store compressors you can get a real compressor that will outlast most original purchasers, that's a deal

With proper upkeep, those Quincy units will outlast the first, second, and half of the third owners' life. Rock solid units (we have a couple at work--1,000,000 sq.ft and 9 compressors). Makes me wish I needed a new unit.


In a while, Chet.

That's the type of tools to have, things like Quincy compressors & Mohawk lifts where you can pass them down to grandkids & great grandkids

Has to make you wonder, though, how Mohawk and Quincy can stay in business. When items last that long, there won't be a repeat sale to that customer.... (But I think it's great to have companies take that kind of business approach. )


In a while, Chet.
