WOW! Thats cold!.....The lowest it ever gets here is about 10 degrees F. I use my compressor all winter.....it is inside my insulated shop. I have had the old Ingorsal Rand for over 25 years and its still going strong. I did have to replace the motor about 10 years ago...I upgraded from a 3 hp to a 5 hp. It sure made a lot of difference.
