Superior Design for Industry-Leading Pumps

Engineered for Durability

The last thing you want to worry about is your compressor breaking down in the middle of a job. The NorthStar® 2 HP, 20-Gallon Vertical Air Compressor has been engineered with superior technology to keep you working without interruption. The durable cast iron V-twin pump has oil lubrication and cast iron heads for long service life. Bearings are placed on both ends of the pump’s crankshaft for superior support and less wear and tear. The result is reliable, dependable operation of your NorthStar air compressor, year after year.

Longer Pump Life

Heat can be a powerful enemy to the longevity of your air compressor pump. That’s why this NorthStar 2 HP, 20-Gallon Vertical Air Compressor has been engineered with a V-style cylinder orientation to eliminate hotspots and provide consistent cooling, resulting in longer pump life. Copper finned inter- and after-coolers provide effective heat dissipation and less moisture. The pump cylinders, heads and crankcase are made of cast iron for extra-long service life. Thanks to this excellent technology, you can count on your NorthStar® air compressor to perform flawlessly for many years.

Quieter Operation

The belt drive oil-lubricated pump on this NorthStar 2 HP, 20-Gallon Vertical Air Compressor runs quietly and efficiently. That means you’ll have less compressor noise in your shop or garage as you work on projects with air tools.

Portable Compressed Air At Your Command

Portable and Versatile

The NorthStar 2 HP, 20-Gallon Vertical Air Compressor comes equipped with a portability kit with smooth-rolling steel ball bearing wheels and no-flat tires, so you can maneuver this powerful compressor right next to your work area or project. The vertical design leaves a space-saving small footprint. This quiet unit is great for automotive and home repairs and has plenty of power to operate impact wrenches, nailers, ratchets and other air tools. It’s an ideal compressor for the serious do-it-yourself homeowner or tough enough to use in a small commercial repair shop.
