Air compressor

I have been looking for new air compressor for some time. Was at an auction this weekend and bought a black max. From what I understand they don't make them anymore, sold to colelman in 1994. Parts are still available. It builds up to 175-200lbs. CFM [email protected] has 5hp electric motor. Is two stage unit. Came with water separator, regulator, plenty of hose. I bought it for $500. What do you guys think of the buy? Rod

MrRod, sounds like you got a fair deal. Have you fired it up yet?

I also bought a used compressor that I'm pretty happy with and came with lots of extra goodies (not the stuff on the wall - I added that!)

Air compressor

Hey Rambo, Yes I did hear it run, sounds good. Everyone on here was stuck on two stage compressors, so that is what I went for. Mine is not as pretty as yours, but think I will be happy with it. Thanks for the reply. Rod

I got lucky on my compressor - it was used only in a private home garage so even though it's 10+ years old it looks really good.

I know you'll be happy with a 2-stage setup. It should be more than enough to make you happy!
