Is this product for you?
The Blackridge 1.0HP air compressor is the simplest and most compact compressor in the Blackridge range; however it’s not designed to compete with its larger brethren. Rather, this compressor has been designed to be the perfect air supply for your airbrush or tyre inflator.
How easy is it to use?
Unlike most compressors which require regular re-oiling, this Blackridge 1.0HP product has been designed to be almost maintenance free. With this compressor, all that is needed is a hose and the tool for the job and it’s all systems go. If the tank does need to be moved around a lot though, this unit may not be for you as this product’s solid rubber feet make it much more suited to a permanent installation. On that note though, this compressor is much easier to bolt down that its counterparts, simply by removing the rubber feet and slipping a bolt straight through into you’re tray or slab.
Where can you use it?
Although this compressor might be the smallest in the Blackridge family, it is uniquely suited to several tasks around the home. For jobs like airbrushing, a high-powered air compressor doesn’t only flow an excessively large amount of air that will just be bled off with a regulator, it will also generally be bulky and hard to store. This Blackridge 1.0HP compressor on the other hand is perfect. With an ample 8L tank and 40 Litres/min air delivery rate, this compressor is the perfect size for your artistic needs. This compressor is also great for tyre inflation and light cleaning duties.
