The Best in this Range...

" This compressor is fairly quiet, builds pressure quickly, and does not leak down. It's rated for longer operation than most other units in this range. For the little bit extra cost, you can't go wrong with an American made Quincy compressor. "

" First let me say that I am very happy with this air compressor. It is very quiet and powerful. It can even keep up with my HVLP sprayer running 6 CFM at 60 psi without a problem. It is nice and quiet too. With it running in the garage, you cant even hear it once you come inside the house, unlike my last direct drive oil-less compressor which could wake the dead.
Quincy compressors is one of the few american made compressors that do almost all of the building here. I say almost because even on this model the motor is made in Mexico. However it seems to be of good quality. Everything else appears to be of superb quality. The tank is finished beautifully. The compressor unit is well made. The regulator is from SMC so you know it is of good quality. The electrical is definitely up to the task of handling the high power this unit draws. Make sure you have a 20 amp outlet and breaker for this unit.
The Air Master series is the entry level for Quincy compressors but is great for home use or a small shop. This unit is big but is still portable.
However sometimes I think it may have been smarter to sacrifice the portability and gain some more power by buying the Q13160V model.
Overall I am very happy with this compressor and I am glad I made the choice to step up and pay a little more for a quality belt driven oil lubricated compressor. I know with proper maintenance this one can go at least 20 years and its flow rate and duty cycle is all that I will ever need. You can't say that with an oil-less compressor! "
