Is this product for you?

Blackridge air compressors all offer great quality at an affordable price, but this compressor goes one step beyond. Perfect for projects in both the home, and the shed, this compressor has a large 180 Litres/min air delivery, and a large 40 litre tank to help maximise up-time. Here, the compressor tank is finished in a few coats of semi-gloss grey, with a bright red handle and decals, making it standout on any worksite.

How easy is it to use?

To get up and running with this compressor, you will still need a few other bits and pieces. Aside from the air tool you need for the task at hand, you will also need an air hose, and some appropriate lubricant (such as SAE 30W or SAE 15W-40). With that in mind, this compressor is very straightforward to use. Twin gauges on the top of the tank allow the user to keep pressures in check at a glance, and the chunky rear tyres help to keep the compressor stable, even on rougher surfaces. The handle on this tank is also easily removable for transport.

Where can you use it?

Thanks to its off-road wheels, this unit is great for outdoor jobs, whilst still being perfectly suitable for workshop duties. The high ‘free air delivery rate’ of 180 Litres/min also makes this compressor perfect for small air tools like staplers, all the way through to impact wrenches, air drills and gravity feed spray guns.

Delivery Fees

Your delivery cost will vary depending on the size, weight and location of the products you choose to purchase as well as your delivery location of choice. Normally the larger the item, the more expensive delivery will be. Extremely large goods (ie. Items requiring a two man lift) will also incur higher delivery rates.

Please note: As we use couriers to deliver all parcels, products cannot be delivered to an unattended address. The courier will require a signature from an occupant at the specified delivery address at the time of delivery, if no one is available to sign for any parcel a card will be left and the parcel re-directed to the nearest Courier depot. You will then be responsible for collecting the parcel from that depot or paying an additional charge for re-delivery.

Supercheap Auto recommends all deliveries be shipped to a location that is attended during business hours, whether that is a home, work or other address, to minimize any redelivery delays and/or fees.

You may incur additional delivery fees/freight charges within the checkout (in excess of the fees and charges specified above) for:

  • Large quantity or bulk orders.
  • Express or urgent deliveries; or
  • Non-stock and/or bespoke items

Bulky Items

At checkout, you will be notified of shipping costs for your approval, these are calculated automatically by the site in accordance with our courier companies' freight charges via a courier aggregation application (supplied by Temando). Bulky items are those with either a high weight or large cubic volume. Products are allocated as bulky as determined by the shipping methods of our courier companies.

Please note if your cart contains non-bulky and bulky items your cart will be calculated accordingly.

Delivery Time Frames

We use a selection of courier services with delivery times of between 1 - 10 business days after dispatch for smaller items, and 3 - 10 business days for larger items, depending on your delivery location. Courier deliveries are made during business hours, Monday to Friday only.

P.O. Boxes and Authority to Leave (ATL)

We are unable to deliver goods to PO Box addresses as all delivery orders are sent via courier services. Unfortunately we do not currently offer Authority to Leave (ATL).

International Shipping

Unfortunately Supercheap Auto is currently unable to provide international shipping.

Reasons for order delays

  • Entry of an incorrect or incomplete address during checkout.
  • The address had no-one to sign for the parcel.
  • Incorrect payment information was entered against the order. Please double check all details at time of checkout as your order will only be created upon receipt of payment.
  • In the event an order is flagged for verification we may need to get in contact via phone before dispatching some orders. Personal details may need to be confirmed for fraud prevention if we are unable to verify the shipping destination to protect the card holder, and this may delay shipping.
  • Occasionally if a particular product is in high demand we may need to supply product from outside of our standard delivery network. This can cause delays in dispatch if orders are directed to regional locations etc.

If your order is not received within the quoted delivery period please check your order progress via our Track & Trace portal, alternatively contact our Customer Support Team on 1300 175 010 or complete our online enquiry form. We will generally respond to online enquiries within 24 hours.

Air compressor

Blackridge Air Compresso
Yes it is not to bad, It does all that is described, But I think I should have got the belt driven Compressor, THE BLACKRIDGE range is good gear
Wasn't happy about the fact that the compressor didn't come with a hose or any accessories.

Air compressor
Great product for the price
Never Again
I purchased the Blackridge BRC180 compressor from Supercheap Autos and it worked ok for 12 Months before not being able to get to full pressure. I queried Supercheap staff about parts and maintenance kits but were told that they don't support them and only sell basic parts such as air filters, oil etc. Could not even buy basic maintenance parts from Supercheap. Very poor support (none) from Supercheap. I Recommend only buying brand name compressors where parts support is available.
Mr Mark Woodruff
Great product, great price and very quick response from the store
Noise, over priced junk. my neighbors hate this machine its loud as and everything on it keeps of breaking air leaks all over it. this thing This must be a SUPERCHEAP brand made and imported by them for sure SUPERCHEAP, i think its time that may you guys should change your names to over priced and back quality
bad service from Blackridge Manufacturer
I recently bought this compressor only to find it did not do what it stated, power a Blackridge air sander. I rang the manufacturer to be told to take it back to the store I bought it from. The sales guy at SCA was very accommodating ringing the manufacturer as well. After being told the manufacturer would ring back, they didn't. After more phone calls by the sales guy he was able to find out the manufacturer couldn't find the air sander on his computer so was told to tell me to buy a belt driven compressor instead. Even the SCA sales guy was stunned by this answer and couldn't believe the lack of service given. I got a refund but will never buy a Blackridge branded product again.
Very good
Good value for what you get

Blackridge Air Compressor Direct Drive 2.5HP - 180LPM
Compressor Runs Ok but all fittings leaked like a sieve and had to remove and refit with boilermakers tape to stop leaks. Obviously not quality tested when put together.
Blackridge Air Compressor
I could not get any parts for my old compressor so I purchased a new one. I am very happy with the operation of this compressor and this has suited my need quite well. Should have bought one of these a long time ago. VERY HAPPY INDEED
Carole Robertson
My husband was over the moon when the compressor was delivered. He hasn't stopped using it and delivery was quicker than we thought. So great job supercheap
You could do a lot worse
Relatively easy to assemble, but does require your own spanners. Works well, but is noisy. Stick it in the corner of the shed, else you'll jump out of your skin (like I did) when the compressor comes on. The brass fittings require thread tape (not supplied). Overall I'm pleased, especially for the price paid. These days you couldn't get a family meal out in Australia for the same offer price.
Grat productet
Hi flow air compressor
Very poor build quality but all round great compressor its cheap and you get what you pay for
Dont waste your money
Purchased this compressor for minor truck panel repairs and performs no better than my little ozito compressor. Do not purchase if you need to for something usefull other than blowing dirt amd dist around
Great unit
Only had it a few weeks but so far very good. easy to assemble and use.
Does what it claims, very happy with it
Compressor regulator leaked air
Great compressor... only problem I had was out of the box the regulator air tap leaked air something shocking. It looks like the manufacturer uses a paste or liquid to seal threads of the regulator and connections... the seal was broken on mine completely useless and I was quite disappointed at first. So I went down to Bunnings and bought some Gastite gas sealant tape and put some some on the threads screwed it back in and it sealed perfect - no more leaks.... I don't think I should have had to of done that for a new product out of the box running the first time though. Other than that I am happy with my purchase so far.
My new best friend
Love it works awesome
Buy it
Yeah this one .keep it out of dasty area .check oil and let out air when done at bottom .no worries better then bunnings.
Air compressor
Great price just wiish it had come with the cord but had to buy seperate otherwise good bargain
Jye lewis
Great compressor easy to put together ,quality product for sure !!!
Blackridge Air Compressor Direct drive 2.5hp
This is a brilliant compressor for the money I pad for it on an online special. It's flow rate an d volume far exceed what is required for a home user. I myself and a Trade Teacher and find this an excellent purchase as compressed air is used extensively in my work. While a belt drive always is more of the trade position this direct drive is solid and robust for most uses. The standard of manufacturing and fittings is higher then what may be expected for a tool of this price. Overall a little gem for the workshop!
Compare to price it's worth, I mean little bit noisy all other than fine .....
Very Happy
Picked up the combo deal from the Tamworth store yesterday ,very happy with the product and the great friendly staff at the Tamworth store
This compressor is really useful around the workshop and home, Good for cleaning plenty of air pressure, flow at 180 liters min for the price, brought on sale
Solid little unit
Good compressor for a lot of jobs. Comes filled with oil and is very good value. Works well and provides enough air for tools and sprayers.
Excellent value and works great
Mr Leon Carver
Great item for price. Very happy with the speedy delivery. A pleasure to buy from. Cheers Leon

Blackridge Aircompressor direct drive 2.5HP - 180LPM
This is a great bit of kit!
Good product, compact a bit noisy but to be expected at the price
sturdy strong rugged and transportable unit ideal for the Dad who has everything
Exc value for money
Excellent value for the price i paid
Good all round compressor light and easy to use.I use it a fair bit over my 3hp 100L compressor because of ease of use it seems quite a robust item it should last a while but time will tell.
Very good little air compresor, good value for money
Good little compressor, excellent value for money
Street Machine/ Car customiser
Keeps up with spray gun with what I have painted so far
Product works fine, however plays up when used with a long extension lead. Needs full voltage. Generally very happy with it.
depends on expectations, good value
I wanted this for working on my car and using the ratchet and undoing nuts bolts, difficult ones as it can be taxing on energy. But this didn't work out for me and i returned it straight away. It struggled to even get tyre nuts off. Now this could have been a faulty unit im unsure as im new to compressors but it did open my mind to them? And i did not want to risk going through the set up agin to find it couldn't handle it. It would be great for spray painting and general stuff around the house and id id prefer the Stanley one if i had the cash but for value you cant beat it. I had the usual excellent service from SCA which I am always pleased with.
Works as it should
Purchased to run framing nailer and does so with ease. 1 min 30 to fill tank from empty is pretty good. No complaints at all works as should. Online purchase was a breeze, ordered the night before and was avaliable during the first hour of the shop being opened.
Very good product
This Compress is so good I nailed a Divider wall it never gave up
Parts missing from box ... not happy
Lugged this heavy thing into my garage, only to find upon opening the box that the wheels, handle, manuals, screws, and oil valve are missing from the package! Couldn't even try it out. Bummer. Thanks to the reviews on here I know to take it back within 1 week so I don't get a run-around. Hopefully I can get a refund smoothly. Fingers crossed///
Good but a little noisy
This product for me is working good have had no problems at all was easy to assemble, moves around easy and freely just a little more noisy then expected when refilling tank, but I believe most cheaper units are.
easy to assemble but mine didn't come with the trick red handle, having said that its not gonna worry me... great value for a 180lpm free air...but still only a DIYers machine!!!
Noisy and leaking oil.
There is no doubt that this thing is noisy. You will NEED hearing protection while using it. Mine came over filled with oil which i suppose is a little better than the alternative, so i had to drain that a little. Yesterday was the third time total I've used the compressor and it started leaking oil out the back plate. I tightened the bolts holding that on just a little more, so I hope that fixes it because if it doesn't it means I have to send the thing back to the manufacturer. I wish I had of bought a different one on the noise issue alone, I don't think the neighbours are impressed either.
Complete junk, Avoid like the plague.
Out of the box it leaked out oil from behind one of the bolts holding the head on. Like turned it on and it literally came out like a tap. Who knows why, poor tap job, thin metal walls, probably all of the above. Luckily they did a straight exchange since it was within a weekold. Outside a week I would have to actually send the damn thing back to the manufacturer for repair, not just drop it at supercheap??? If I bought it at Supercheap, as far as I'm concerned it should be their problem. The replacement worked when I put it together and tested it. Next time I pulled it out the pressure relief valve seems to have died as it just keeps on pumping. First time I noticed it the thing had run up over 150psi and was still happily pumping away. Surprised the thing didn't go off like a pipe bomb. So I now have to go through the above mentioned stuff around to get it fixed. Again. AVOID AVOID AVOID
Broke down
I bought this compressor after comparing to others of similar price at other stores. I bought because it came with free extras. I followed all the instructions to work it in etc and it worked fine the first time I used it to inflate a bike tyre. Two weeks later it started but then stopped after about one minute. I took it back to exchange and was told it needs to be repaired as it is older than one week. I am now without a compressor and await the return of a repaird compressor. I should have bought a refurbished better brand that would havecostmethe same as i paid. Very disappointed. I had a cheaper compressors froma hardware store that lasted over ten years without fail. I did not expect to have such a run around having the compressor repaired as I have had. I made a bad decision buying this compressor.
Car painting
This budget high flow compressor does a excellent job on car painting. Best use is only on intermittent only spray when compressor is not pumping air. More or less do not try to continue painting until compressor refiils air & stops. It is ideal for painting one panel at a time, I found it is best at around 12 seconds before air runs out.
Excellent for home use
Cheap and easy to use.
Just what I was looking for
This is the second compressor that I have owned and I am very happy with it. The build quality is not too bad but the air taps do feel a bit flimsy. It is a single cylinder model but it fills the tank quickly. Suitable for medium duty applications. The on/off switch could be better labelled. Overall it is a resonable compressor at an affordable price that can do most jobs around the house/garage.
