Belt Drive Air Compressor

September 5th, 2014

There are some things in life that you can get a great a great price on, but it was just wishful thinking buying a cheap compressor for $160 thinking it was going to last.

My little direct drive 2 Hp unit just could not cut it any longer. Every time I required large amounts of air, it would run continuously at a less than satisfactory pressure. My advice is to spend a lot on a decent machine, it will save you money in the long run.

I decided to bite the bullet and dig deep for a reliable and powerfull compressor. I purchased a 3Hp Eagle with a 50 litre tank.

The continuous rated supply ability of this unit is 273 litres per minute at full pressure.

Now I am finally able to run the die grinder, spray gun and plasma cutter not all at once of course.

This compressor has an aluminium head, twin pistons in the one housing, 50 lite tank. 3 Hp 2800 RPM single phase motor, a water trap and one outlet.


Here you can see the twin air inlets on the filter mounted to the head.
