Default Craigslist compressor.

Not too bad of a deal.. I picked this up for $350.00 Seems to be quite a nice running unit. Was turned on a few times, but basically new. Love the valve that turns the compressor to full time run. It's perfect for running off of my Genny..
I did have a Emglo just like it years ago, and is comparable..Pump might be a bit better on the Emglo,but this wins on features.. Still nothing wrong with the made in Italy Chinook pump. Both are very quiet running.. 1740 RPM motor, and 780 RPM pump speed..

It will run my Plasma cutter well, when out and about..

That one looks new enough, or cared for enough to make it a bargain. What I don't like about CL compressors is the lack of care & draining the tank (tank rust) that seems to follow most of those units.

I have an Emglo just like that one that was given to me with a bad motor. I now need a tank set for it...

One year old, and turned on twice, is not going to rust the tank out. Well placed lever drain valves makes it easy to drain..I never had one speck of rust out of my 20 year home tank,Means I get the drill. Cool running portable too.

I do agree that you have to be carefull with buying used.. I would buy my Curtis from myself..

That was the point of my post above.....especially with compressors.
