Q: Re the Rolair VT25BIG. I blow out home plumbing systems when winterizing and want to know if I can plug this compressor into an outlet served by a 15 amp breaker and not have it trip the breaker.

Thanks
Darrel

by Darrel Suthergreen from Washington on October 28, 2011

A: This unit is rated as 13.8 amps, so it should be fine on a 15 amp circuit as long as it's the only thing pulling power through that circuit.

If the homeowner is running other appliances on the same circuit it could pop the breaker.

This unit from Rolair has a smaller tank than our other picks, but that doesn't make it the runt of the litter- it's earned it's "Good" spot on our list.

It has a 115V industrial-grade electric motor S-1 rated for a 100% duty cycle- it will work as long and as hard as you do.

We like the unique setup of the frame and tank, too- it's plumbed to let 2 people work at once (or 1 person to switch quickly between 2 tools...), but the frame protects the motor and provides a handy... more

From The Manufacturer
Big Equals High Output
Our model VT25BIG lives up to the ‘BIG’ in the model number.

This compressor is our highest outputting direct drive unit at 6.5 CFM @ 90 PSI. That is almost as much as an electric belt drive compressor!

Not only will this compressor handle your work load, but it will run on a 15-amp circuit. The VT25BIG draws only 13.8 amps while running, making cold weather start-up a breeze.

The framework of this compressor suits the model number as well. The pump/motor, pressure switch and... more

Nice While It Lasted
I'm a plumber and purchased this compressor (not from this site) for draining the water in cottages for the winter. After draining about 30 of our 100 or so, it would only pump up to 25 PSI, and normally runs steady at 55 PSI.

We have sent it back. The oil in the pump is grey and full of aluminum shavings, and it's only (at most) two months old. Our past compressors have been Delta and Campbell Housefield, and lasted for years.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight
Cons: Low Quality, Durability

The Only Air Compressor You Will Ever Buy!
This air compressor is so very handy and portable. It never runs low on air and works excellent with any air operated tool. It maintains the pressure you need when you need it.

It is easy to move around and easy to store thanks to the handles being collapsible. I would recommend this air compressor to any handy person amateur or professional.
Pros: Durable, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality, Easy To Store
Cons: A Little Pricey But Is Well Worth The Extra Money
