  • Any disadvantage in getting this compressor

    I am in the market for a compressor and have narrowed my choice down to these two models:

    This one is a 300 liter, 5.5hp, 26,6cfm compressor with a V belt drive and two cylinders. It works at 950 rpm.

    This one is again a 300 liter, 5.5hp, 26,6cfm compressor. But it has only 1 cylinder and works at 1450 rpm. Also, in this model, the tank is upright and takes very little floor space.

    I want to get the upright one because of the lesser space requirements, but I am concerned about the high rpm. It will probably be more noisy and will have a higher wear.

    What do people think about these two types of compressors?

    The two cylinder unit with slower speed would be my choice, even though it is horizonal. I'm sorry I cannot read Turkish language but one thing you would also want to look for would be cylinders made of cast iron. They are much more durable than aluminum.

    Good luck.

      if it was my money id go with the lay down model. its quieter will fill faster less ware and tear, it does take more space but it has many advantages not found in the upright model. i would not worry to much about cast iron heads or aluim reall ymakes no difference, the aluim ones usualy have a steel linner for the piston any how, and being thats its going to run slower and fill faster you dont have as much run time for heat up , just make sure to follow the break in times that the manule calls for, even if they fill at the same rate you still have less heat build up in a 2 cyclinder where as the single its going to run almost 2 times as fast and louder and heat up fast ,

      so it boils down to where you want your money to go and how long you want this stuff to last you..

        Some aluminum cylinders have a steel or cast iron liner and others do not. The ones that do not generally have some sort of ceramic baked in liner. I guess they are OK but they are not something I'd care for.
