Q: Is there any place to find replacement air filters. IR product number in the owners Manuel is wrong. I've tried using product dimensions via silvery. It seems like there isn't anyone that can give you a part number. Thank you for your help. It's hard to believe the owners Manuel part numbers don't exist.
by Patrick Gillespie from Oregon on June 30, 2016

A: Unfortunately, we do not sell any belts or other replacement parts. Here's the link to find the nearest IR parts & service center:

Q: We are requiring air compressor with 2.5 cfm @101 psi so we bumped up our requirement to 5 cfm and 150 psi. Our querry is whether this is a good option to go with it.
by Kush from Illinois on July 30, 2015

A: Unfortunately, this compressor will not work. Single stage compressors fill the air tank to 125-135 psi but they do not turn back on until the tank reaches 95 psi. So a two stage compressor would be needed to maintain the higher pressure. A two stage compressor has a cut out @ 175 psi & a cut in @ 135 psi.

This is an awesome unit from US manufacturer Ingersoll Rand. It is portable, but you'll need some muscle to get the 200 pounds moving in the right direction.

That weight translates into durability, so it's a good thing. The cast iron pump is designed for small shops and serious do-it-yourselfers who need a continuous-duty compressor that can still run on household current.

The single phase, 115V motor will need to be on a 16 amp circuit, but no special plugs or wiring are needed. This... more

Worry About Warranty
I purchased similar unit several years ago from a big box. Immediately aware of a leak at a weld in tank. Tried to return to store but was told all warranty was through vendor - they would have exchanged if they had a unit in stock they said but item was discontinued and discounted.

Contacted IR and was told I needed to ship to out of state site for repair - told them that was cost prohibitive but they were firm that nothing would be done unless I shipped it to them. I welded and repaired... more

Ingersoll Rand's Factory Warranty on this unit covers defects in materials & workmanship for 1 year- so that sounds like your situation. You could also use Ingersoll Rand's Service Locator to find the closest locations to your zip code; they are showing 2 in your area (Livonia & Rockwood).

The terms of most Factory Warranties will say that if you alter the unit you void the warranty- I'm sorry, but trying the repair yourself has probably done that, so using another air receiver was probably the next-best solution.

Great For Me & Mine, Good For America
This model is my workhorse for medium-heavy torque drivers, texture sprayers, finish/siding/framing nailers, tire inflating, surface dusting, you name it.

It is arguably the best air compressor in this price range; it is THE best one in its CFM range. (When IR says it delivers X amount of air, you can pretty much bet it delivers X+1.) I've had it for a couple years now and I expect many more years of reliability from it.

Now, as far as the topic of IR, US-made, and all that... I know a... more

I love this nice quiet little compressor! Biulds preasure fast & easy access ball valve drain.

Heavy Duty Commercial Quality in a small package! It's Heavier than the compititon cuz it's built that much better. IR Builds Serious Pnumatic stuff at a Bargain price & this Compressor is Genuine IR Quality At It's Finest.

24 years of working with IR Tools & Equipment have led me to this purchase & I could'nt be happier!

I Own One
IR has US plants- true. The tank is US made. The motor, pump, & valve are sourced from china... stamped on the unit!

FYI- the larger units are Made In USA, we have 5 units in our plant.

If the manufacturer states an air compressor meets the Made in USA rules, we will describe it that way.

If the manufacturer tells us it's been assembled in the USA, we can also say that- but the two terms are not inter-changeable.

Awesome Compressor!!!
This IR compressor rocks! It was past time to upgrade from my pancake compressor and this machine hasn't let me down.

It's relatively portable for slightly over 200 lbs. and seems to be able to handle everything I've thrown at it so far. Impact guns, ratchets and sanders just keep on going with this beast. It will only pump up to 135 psi and seems to have a small air leak that I will try and find tomorrow, but I'm definitely impressed so far.

Ingersoll Rand has been doing it right for... more

I was extremely pleased with the way the carrier handled delivery of the compressor. The set up instructions are very simple. The initial start-up was perfect. You have an excellent product. Thanks!

Very Pleased !!!
I originally purchased a Sears Craftsman air compressor. Got it home, plugged it in, and I think it was the loudest thing I've ever heard. Plus it couldn't keep up with my DA Sander. I returned it the next day. Got online, did my research, and purchased this compressor from Air Compressors Direct. I am very pleased with the purchase. Took about 6 days for delivery, which I think was fast delivery. The Ingersoll Rand compressor is not as loud and delivers the air requirements I need. I would... more

Great Air Compressor
I never owned an air compressor prior to this one but I did a lot of research and decided on the P1.5IU-A9. The best price when compared to other similar models, same size capacity and same size HP, was at Air Compressors Direct.

I found the same model on another website that was on sale- but when the tax and shipping was added cost more than the regular price at Air Compressors Direct, which does not charge taxes or delivery. So I purchased it from here.

The compressor has worked great... more

We will work with the folks at Averitt Express to improve service in your area- you should have gotten a call from their dispatch office to set up a time and day for the delivery.

I'm glad you had a friendly neighbor to help out! We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience.

U.s. Manufacture
I think Steve is being a little misleading when he refers to it "US manufacturer Ingersoll Rand" From what I understand is that only the tank is made here. The motor and pump are made out of the country.
Steve, the Air Compressor Expert
Product Expert
Ingersoll Rand has 47 manufacturing and assembly plants in the United States; we think that qualifies them as a U.S. Manufacturer.

Have Not Received The Compressor
Freight company showed up with the compressor which was damaged. Call ACD and was re-ordered. I have not seen the compressor yet and when I called they had no info on the compressor. I have no shipping notice and no support. If I do not receive it in another week. I will cancel the order. Air Compressors Direct is not a good company.

Gary, the replacement order was shipped from IR's KY factory on 9/4, but we did not get the shipment info until yesterday, 9/17. We emailed the PRO/tracking # yesterday but we will send it again along with the contact info for the freight company.
