FREE SHIPPING - Ingersoll Rand Electric Stationary Air Compressor - 3 HP, 10.3 CFM @ 135 PSI, 230 Volt, Model# SS3L3
Power, quiet, durability
I would highly recommend. I have used it now for over a year. Still runs the same as when I bought it. Easily able to keep up with my hobby work of restoring items and painting.
This compressor is surprisingly quiet for the size and capability. Well worth your investment, just keep it oiled.

So far so good
Quieter than other compressors I've been around. Fills up fast, no leaks, shiny powder-coat (one small chip in the finish around the valve but no biggie) Not using it for anything very aggressive but it easily keeps up with my tools the largest air consumer being the cut off wheel. I now need to buy a bigger stronger impact wrench to take advantage of the larger air volume of the new compressor.

bought it specifically for fab work and a blast cabinet. works fantastic. fairly quiet and really puts out the air
cons: got really hot in the closed in area where it's kept, actually melted the plastic threads off the air filter assembly.
this was solved by adding some black pipe and a cooling fan. probably would not have happened if it was more in the open

Installed inside insulated garage , very low noise level with output that could handle 2 auto body repairmen .
Came equipped with ball shutoff valve plus I like the powder coat finish .
I did install hour meter for run time .

Wow this thing is great. Shipping took several weeks but it is worth the wait. Just used it the for a week now and it keeps 3 hoses going. It is the quietest compressor I have ever owned.

Great air compressor for the money
I purchased this unit 3 yrs. ago and it has performed flawlessly. I do keep the oil changed and I have an auto-drain kit installed so I don't worry about the moisture buildup in the tank. Like others have said, I also have inline filters/lubricators. Take care of this compressor as you should any compressor and it will be around for a long time, money well spent. I use this with several heavy duty shop tools. I have a 1" drive impact to use on some old tractor wheels and have always had the volume and the compressor keeps up, I nevver have to wait on it.
You can buy other compressors for less money, but in my opinion, you will spen more money chasing and waiting on parts to repair those compressors.

I've been using this compressor now for over 4 years. I have to say it is very quiet for a compressor and has done every task that I have thrown at it. Only thing that could have made it a better deal is to include a regulator with it. Coupled with an IR air wrench I haven't come across a tire nut that I haven't been able to break loose. Also loved the free shipping when I bought it.

I recently purchased this product for home work and a restoration project on a classic car. I have invested in some pneumatic tools for my car project. This machine will easily power any tool I have used on it to this point. With properly regulated air pressure, I have operated my die grinders, air rachet, and 1/2 impact wrench to my desire without a lack of demand in air pressure. It runs smooth, recharges quick, and is much less noisy than my 110 electric compressor. It will require the connection of 230vac power cord that anyone with mechanical skills can connect without any difficulty. I am confident that it will last my lifetime.

Purchased this Compressor back around the end of 2011 it's the 3 HP single stage unit. I use it mainly for my wood & metal shop. This compressor is quite and keeps up with CFM demand of all the air tools that I use and I have been very happy with it. One thing you will need after it’s hooked up is a 2 foot piece of hanger strap and a 1/4" bolt about 2'' long with a nylon lock nut. When facing the front of the compressor run the strap over the front right side of the fan cover and use the screw at the corner to secure it. Then take the bolt and use the hole on the bottom plate that the compressor and motor are fastened to (there was a hole with nothing in it on mine) and put the strap under great pressure thru this hole leaving the bolt with plenty of threads for adjusting. With the compressor running simply make adjustments to the bolt tightening it down which is pulling the fan guard towards you. Once the rattling stops then you’re good. I got this tip from reading someone else’s review on here and thought well mine will be different and maybe I won’t need to do this well I still had to do it. Once I did this it's very quiet (as quite as it could be) and works just as I had planned.

Initially I was worried this would be a little small for my purpose but everything worked out perfectly. I bought this to use with an HVLP paint gun. Works great for this purpose and the compressor hardly runs at all. I have used it with my Ingersoll Rand IRT315 sander for hours and it has no problem keeping up. I am very happy with this compressor and have no problems recommending it.
