Rodger, (I can spot a real expert when I read one) and anyone else with experience with Eaton air compressors.
Eaton makes several different 7.5 hp models that they claim has a oversized pump, that is underspeed at 600 RPM. The motors are apparently top of the line, what about the pumps? They are V4's. Good quality or not? worth it or not? How is the company to deal with? anyone offer any personal experience?
I presently have a Husky (mfg by Campbell-Hausfeld) 7.5 hp, 80 gal, about 24 CFM, vertical unit. It has a "made in USA" (or so says the bolt on endplate on the pump, could be just the endplate is made in USA, dunno) and a made in Mexico motor. It seems to work OK and is only a little too loud and they claim 15,000 hr life which is forever for a 49 year old home shop user (I intend on using it with a blast cabinet I haven't bought yet, along with the usual air tools and blowing off stuff, etc)
Probably should not be dreaming of bigger and better, but cannot help it. Possibly I'll sell the nearly new condition Husky and buy an Eaton.
Thanks for any insights anyone has.
