At least he didn't pinstripe it with the coordinating yellow like Berry does.

It was a lighter gray when I got it.
didn't look right, it does now.
Buy the way, it was given to me, didn't work, took about 10 minutes to get it to work. Works perfect now and friends, kids, brothers come over sometimes, just to hear it. the only problem with that is..I have to drain down the tank some to get it to kick on. lots of air in there. I like to drain down the tank when the cat or wife is around, and not looking.

I love that green. Kelly is very popular this spring.

I think you can get that paint from Walmart Professional Paint Consultants.
Ask for the department manager, specify SlagKing Compost Greeen, with 3 e's.
It is a custom mix & the younger associates might not be familiar with it.

Champion is a good compressor. I have two.
Sounds like your centrifugal unloader isn't working properly.

Huh? Sounds like he doesn't have enough leaks in his air lines.

Jeff, No thats not it..it works fine.
It's just that I have to drain down the tank pressure to the start up pressure to get it running again. thats all.
I have 4 drains on this tank. On the pipe that goes to the filters/hose connections, is the drain I use the most. And it really makes a noise when you open 'er up. Perfect for chasing the cat out of the shop, and when the wife is noisy around the shop, I just open that drain and let 'er talk awhile.
For some reason, it makes the wife jumpy and she leaves.
