COMPRESSERS

HI I GOT A 150L COMPRESSER BUT THE MOTOR IS NO GOOD I GOT A QUOTE ON A NEW PETROL 13HP HONDA BUT THEY WANT 1200 WAY 2 MUCH I WANT 2 MAKE IT SINGLE PHASE .CAN A 3HP ELECTRIC MOTOR WORK THIS TANK.CAN SUM 1 GIVE MA A CHEAP IDEA.

Comments

I have a 3HP single phase motor running on a 160L tank with no worries. It will also depend on the air pump if the electric motor will run it. The motor will however require a 15amp plug on a good circuit. Try Compressor Care in Queensland, thats where i got all my stuff from, they are very well priced with good customer service. They also have all the prices on there website.

Cheers
Danny

Compressor care sell both the motors and pumps so they might be the best bet even just to get a few ideas. They would probably know more about your options than i would. Having said that it would be a bad idea to invest a large amount of money in a new engine only to find out that the pump or tank are not in the best condition.

Whats wrong with the honda?
Can it be rebuilt? Rings are only about $40
It would be worth rebuilding if you could do it your self, if the bore is stuffed - Chuck it
