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 per minute air delivery rating, 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 per minute 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.

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

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.
