Our old 60 gallon Husky Compressor finally went out. It was actually because I forgot to check the oil, and it became too low, and seized up the pump. Very sad for sure.
So, on the advice of a friend, and several others in our King’s Fine Woodworking Community Group, I went with an Ingersoll Rand 60 gallon compressor. This video covers how we swapped out the two.
One interesting thing to note. Is that the Ingersoll Rand, I was told by many, is the upper end of compressors, and the Husky is the lower end. Yet the prove between the two, was only about .00. Not really a huge difference for something with a much better reputation and warranty.
The compressor was bought entirely by us, with no sponsorship of any kind. I don’t really know how good it is. But, I can use it for 6 months or a year, and then report back on it for those interested.
