This compressor earned our Good slot with its combination of features and price.

This unit is a budget-wise step up from single stage units if you need the more CFM to supply larger air tools or multiple work stations.

We like that it's ready to go- no need to purchase a starter, has a built-in pressure switch, and high-end features like stainless steel valves and an oil sight glass.

An added benefit is that the folks at BelAire test their tanks at 100% full pressure before they leave... more

Works Great!
I looked and looked for a compressor that would supply enough CFM for my new cabinet sand blaster. It had to have the CFM but it had to have 220C-AC single phase and not draw more than 30 amps. I was afraid my 30 amp breaker wouldn't be enough but it is and it works great.

It fired right up and delivers 90 PSI and doesn't run out of air while blasting away. I do need to get an air dryer on it to keep the sand dry- I noticed the sand is packing a little.
Pros: Quiet, I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, Fast
Cons: Heavy

Ken,
Im glad you found a good match for your sandblasting cabinet! Here's a link to our page for 5-HP Air Dryers, and this Tsunami Painting Dryer would also work for sandblasting.

Quiet & Quick To Fill!
Ordered this compressor to replace a previous one I had, worlds better is all I can say.

It is really quiet for an oiled compressor, and fills decently fast. Couldn't be happier.

Looks cool as well!

What An Upgrade!
We could only get 90psi out of our old unit. The BelAire is great.

It was not shipped on a flimsy skid, it was very easy to hook up, and Air Compressors Direct made the purchase easy and beat any local price by a mile.

Needless to say, I'm Happy!!

Hope It Lasts Another 30 Years
I bought the Belaire for a couple of reasons-

The first reason i needed one that could run a sand blaster with no down time.

The next thing that i wanted was one made in the USA like the one I had for 30yrs.

It was time for a new one- I picked Belaire 318vn. After I got it hook up it was so quiet I had to check to see if it was running- I never heard a compressor so quiet.

I hope that this one will last 30yrs. very pleased with it

Can't Believe How Quiet It Is!!
I have a medium volume auto dealership moving 30-50 units a month, I just put up a 40x40 2 bay garage with all new equipment, we do it all, body and mechanical so I needed a good solid performer. A friend told me to check out the 7.5 I&R fully packaged which I did and after researching it heavily I decided it was not reliable enough and way too loud.

Even though this site rates it as a best buy, the reviews do not reflect it, the other reason was the warranty, a full 2 years versus one... more

I was somewhat apprehensive about ordering from a company so far from my home, especially when required to send payment "up front" with a check to a company I had never dealt with, even in order to save 2% on the purchase price.

However, my total experience with Air Compressors Direct was completely positive. My order was processed quickly and I received my compressor 13 total days from the date I placed my order. It arrived in perfect condition, undamaged, was easy to hook up,... more

Great Value
I did a lot of research and kept coming back to this compressor. It was delivered right away. The trucker had a pallet jack, and put it right where I wanted it.

Had an electrician put a plug on the end of the wire and flipped the switch. No issues at all. Ran galvanized pipe along the garage with a Tsunami water separator and an air regulator. The compressor handles ALL my tools (grinders, sanders, cut off wheels) with ease.

Haven't painted yet, but don't anticipate a problem. To top... more
