Good deal on an air compressor



Russ, thanks for the head's up on this! :)biggrin

smile That is a VERY good deal on a twin torpedo style compressor.
I am IMPRESSED, and that price INCLUDES SHIPPING. Very Nice!

It is my guess at that price they are using a GAS ENGINE motor like the ZONG SHEN from China or similair.

They are cheap but seem to have proven themselves with decent longeveity from my research.

The same basic engine is used on many Hypro pest control pump/ motor combo setups nowadays.

The Compressor pump SPECS says CAST IRON head but it doesn't say if it uses forged or aluminum Conecting rods and wristpins.

Aluminum rods and wristpins make the air compressor pump a throw away item basically after it's servicable life EXPIRES.

We would need to research the MTBF factor ( the mean time between failure rate) to see how effective price to value level that this compressor reveals to us.

I am pretty sure that that would do just fine for a Yamada NDP-5 which is the smaller 1/4" Poly pump (they do not make any in KYNAR but the Poly pumps are cheap and plentiful) and until you get into the 1" KYNAR versions, at least from Yamada) and with this air compressor and a $200-$250.00 POLY Air Diaphragm would give most roof cleaners the flow they need for most residential roofs 3,000 sq. ft. and under and would probably last several seasons, allowing most to get a good handle on their individual markets and get the dollars to at least start to flow in initially.

And I think it would be more reliable from a servicability standpoint than some other methods of chemical delivery for startups.

With larger roofs the compressor would just run non-stop and that shortens engine and air compressor pump lifespan because of the constant cycling. The psi seems adaquate but anything with a CFM rating of under 12 is best left to the small 1/4" air diaphragm pumps and intermittent use.

The Yamada NDP-15 Poly 1/2" and Ingersol-Rand 1/2" ARO series Air Diaphragms in Kynar editions require much more CFM and a larger air storage tank to keep the air diaphrgm from stalling and starving for air when used in a roof cleaning application.

IMHO- This has been my experience.

Great find Russ!

That is a very good price.

If you had problems with it, I wonder if they stock parts for the compressor?

has anyone every used a large generator (say 8000 + watts) and a electric air compressor with a larger tank so that you wont have problems with air supply. I am talking about a 30 to 60 gallon version.

What advantage does the air driven pump have over a gas? Is the air driven a non metal diaphram pump? I have a AR-30 diaphram right now, but I dont think it would last long with this roofing solution. So the dual tank compressor runs the pump, correct?

For the Yamada air pumps. They are the most chemically resistant and do not require unloader/regulators which will fail from the roof mix. Traditional gas powered chemical pumps do not come even close to the durability of the Yamada air pump system.

Also the most fuel efficient, air compressors have low-idle auto throttle adjusters when the pumps are not in use.

Mike,

Thank you for that. Thats what I thought you might say. I looked online, but had a bit of trouble finding a price for the pump. Am I assuming that you guys use 5/8 ID hose with the smaller 15, while the 25 should use 3/4 hose? And does the larger 49gallon pump work ok with the dual air tanks? I thought I read someone was thinking about a larger electric compressor maybe to combat with the compressor playing catchup?

Superior chemical resistance & durability, plus it does not require an unloader/regulator which will fail from the roof mix.

Yes, it's non metal diaphram. Kynar is superior chemically resistant to bleach.

You're right about the AR-30, it would be toast.

Yes, the compressor runs the pump.

Yes, 5/8" for the 15gpm is what Chris and Dave use.

Dave is the only one I've seen that uses those monster pumps bigger than 15gpm.
He must be on crack, HAHA!! jk.

49gpm is just a ridiculous amount of flow, and only needed for large commercial jobs.

It might be too much if the complex did not have a drainage system.

The Yamada 15gpm is plenty.

I also agree with all the guys about the compressor Russ posted at the top.

That is the best deal I've seen for a 12 CFM compressor. Perfect for the 1/2" 15gpm air pump.



-- Edited by Mike Sullivan at 20:40, 2009-02-26




For reference,

I use 1/2" , 5/8" and 3/4" hose, SOME of my reels have 1/2" Kuri Tec Agricultural type 600psi burst strength.

I also have a 30" Summit Reel with a 1" Manifold and it has 3/4" Green AG hose which was costly.

I also have a large 28" Titan Aluminum and SS Reel with 5/8" Kuri Tec.

I mention this so you all realize I have a variety of hose dia. and types.

Everyone ALSO needs to know that under normal job circumstances, the YAMADA NDP-25 in KYNAR which we own, can deliver a max. of 49GPM and is 1" in/out, but, for MOST, average roof cleaning situations is way OVERKILL.

Yes, like the wife says, bigger is better,LOL, but in this case, not always so.

I have it SPLIT into TWO 3/4" hoses and with 200' of hose on each reel its liquid delivery is, to say the least, MASSIVE.

I don't have enough buckets and can't seem to look at the timer while filling, in time before all the buckets I put out are FULL. It's maybe not not quite as fast as that sounds but it is amazing how much liquid this pump can actually flow, and you still have to take into account FRICTION LOSS yet this pump still is like a mini FIRE HOSE and is hard to hold onto at full pressure and flow.

Mind you that is with a 3/4" hose open flow and no restrictions. When I put nozzles on the end of the hoses and run the pump, with the compressor I have now, it does not have anough CFM to run this monster pump continuously without stalling which is why I recommend anyone seroiusly think of doing big jobs or multi hose reel rigs with a big pump go to a 30 or 60 gallon tank and a 13 hp honda motor and at least a twin cylinder but preferably a V4 air compressor pump to keep up with flow and demand and air consumption.

The air compressor offered by Water Cannon is a good deal price wise but it is a CHINESE built Asian made compressor. If it fails it may be very hard to get parts for and to have serviced. The air compressors parts may not stand constant cycling of the compressor as the tank that is storing air is only 9 gallons.

It is my experience that a tank with 30 gallons will be much more effective. You could buy this Portable compressor from Water Cannon and get an Add-On Storage tank at auction or make your own from a broken compressor by taking off the broken motor, plugging the outlets except for one in and one out. This may work well.

Another thing to consider, air compressors are like cars and and there are many choices and models and quality varies greatly.

A few things to keep in mind is that Cast iron or FORGED, HARDENED RODS and Wristpins last much longer and are replaceable, as compared to, aluminum or Stamped, which wear out quickly.

And Reeds in the Air Handling pump do not last and are not rebuildable most times in the "throw Away" style compressors that are lower priced.

However, Discs in the Air Handling Pump are the Commercial and preferred way to get long pump life out of a quality built air compressor.

Also, VERY IMPORTANT is RPM (revolutions per minute), this little abbreviation can be the DEATH RATLE to a compressor. The rule of thumb is less R P M = Longer lasting Compressor and Motors. Get the LOWEST RPM compressor you can AFFORD.

Also from my research, WARRANTY is usually a PRO-RATA type on less quality compressors where as if you spend a little more you can have a 5 year bumper to bumper warranty from a company like EATON COMPRESSOR that stands behind every compressor they buildand they build them in the USA, in Ohio, and try to use mostly ONLY AMERICAN MADE parts, and have been in business, I believe, for 31 years.

Yes, This Yamada NDP-25 is way more pump than most of you will ever need, its just that I wanted to try to build the ULTIMATE ROOF CLEANING RIG and that was and still is what this Yamada NDP-25 Kynar pump will be used for. I will show you the pics when I get this MEGA roof Cleaning Rig finalized and completely "DIALED-IN"...Until then...

I have been testing this just so I could have it online and READY when the big commercial roofs come along, here and there. And they do from time to time.

For all practical purposes, the Yamada NDP-15 in 1/2" flow IN/OUT in Poly or KYNAR (PVDF) and the (Ingersol-Rand) ARO 1/2" Kynar that I and Chris T. Of Apple Roof Cleaning have are the best of the best in chemical delivery system solutions for minimizing downtime and maximizing ROI.

These air diaphragm pumps are what most roof cleaners will one day eventually want to move into purchasing but for many the cost to play in the park with these pumps and the additional compressor cost keep most out of this buying arena.

Th bottom line is that once you try using a air diaphragm pump system and deliver chemical to the roof using this method over the other available methods, you will most likely be sold on the concept and will upgrade all other rigs you own to this chemical delivery method.

The REASON....They work, they are a lot more simple to operate and they don't breakdown most times, and if you go with the ARO model with the uneven crankset for the motor, it will almmost NEVER even stall, with a decent compressor and a 15 or 20,30, 60 gallon buffer air storage tank.

The key is always have a backup pump in ready and in wait for when the PRIMARY pump fails, and believe me, it will FAIL one day, when you least expect it.
But with a backup, just unbolt the base of the broken pump and sned it out for service or rebuild it yourself and put on the SPARE pump, tighten the bolts and liquid fittings and you are off and spraying again.

Sure your out a few bucks on the front end but on the back end you will be cleaning more roofs and spending less time in the shop.

You do the math!

All the Best to you all, Dave- Roof Clean USA

Great post thank you! Am I to understand by your post that even the 15 with a small gas 9 gal compressor you are getting some air flow problems?

To clarify:

The Yamada NDP-15 in POLY or KYNAR is a 1/2" pump and will STALL if overloaded and not provided with enough air (CFM). The Compressor used to provide air volume has to be in proportion to the maximum the pump is capable of pumping full on.

On the Yamada Pumps depending on the model you have a reset button you can press and the pump will work again but it is very inconvienent if you are on the roof or ladder when the system stalls and you have to reset. It is a waste of time and is frustrating to say the least.

The ARO series Ingersol-Rand Air Diaphragms are made differently and take stalling into consideration and are built with an uneven, unbalanced crankshaft. This improvement means that with the ARO series STALLING is virtually eliminated when using the right comprssor and tank that is CORRECTLY matched to support your pump.

The Yamada and the ARO 1/2" pumps are both good. But the new design of the ARO model, makes it a cut above.

That MIGHT be MY next air compressor !!
The Rigid we have been using is no longer sold at Home Depot.
I HAD one of those Chinese Compressors like the water cannon one in this thread.
Gave it to my Cousin, couldn't keep it running long!
The Chinese Motor no match for a Honda.
Had to pull it several times to get it started, put too much strain on recoil mechanism.
It was constantly breaking!
It DID have a LOT of air, when it worked.
The Norther Tool Compressor you found Mike has a 20 gallon Tank!
THIS is a GOOD thing.
I think this will be MY next Compressor ?
Good Find man !!

LOL! Cool! I thought you'd like it.

Plus it pushes more CFM's than the Ridgid. You guys also mentioned if the CFM's are less than 12 the Yamada 1/2" tends to stall.

This compressor should prevent that, I think.

Would a compressor like pictured above, but a honda, rigid or something with a 9 gal be enough for the ARO series Ingersol-Rand Air Diaphragms 15gpm? What is the CFM I should be looking for? I dont want to by chinese, but would like to know what combination air compressor and pump works best. I would mostly be doing res work for now. I have some Delevans but I use them for something else. I could use a compressor anyway so this would be just another reason to buy one.

This is what I personally feel may be the best compressor for what we do.

*hp 30 gallon Eaton Gas Compressor-5 yr. Warranty
Eaton GAs Compressor- Roof Cleaning Recommended
8hp 30 gallon Eaton Gas Compressor-5 yr. Warranty, Roof Cleaning Recommended


It is not to big and not to small and has a PROVEN, elcetric start HONDA motor with a 2 year warranty and a 5 YEAR BUMPER TO BUMPER WARRANTY, plus, a 30 gallon tank.

I am discussing the bulk purchase of this compressor with this company at this time as I need several of these. I may be able to get these for 80.00 to 125.00 lower thabn the WHOLESALE DIRECT price on their website.

This is everyone's OFFICIAL notification to SAVE if you are interested in a truly PRofessional application AMERICAN MADE Gas Compressor with a SOLID warranty- see EATON's Testimonials, they are TOUGH to beat.

Yes they are more expensive than CHINESE made crap that can be had for less but you get what you pay for, is my motto.

I am trying to get all that are looking to make the air diaphragm and compressor way to clean their preferred method of cleaning to voice theri opinion here.

What do you all think of think of this compressor?


You ALL just heard what Chris said about the Chinese compressors, well the truth is that the NORTHERN compressor may be more of the same and I don't want to see anyone have to spend money twice for TWO compressors.

I am not trying to hurt ANYONE'S feelings here, so please don't take what I am saying the wrong way.

I just have personally been down this road with other foreign tools and equipment and spending the money upfront so we all can show up for work everyday and have equipment that will perform when we are ready to work rather than CRAP out on us when we need it to work, that costs MUCH MORE with gas, time and rescheduling , than getting a quality unit from the start.

Look guys I know what some of you might be thinking and your right, upfront I will tell you that after MUCH research I am choosing EATON COMPRESSOR for my compressors.

Why?

I am trying to save money like we all are and know that buying cheap asian made equipment has bit me before.

Honestly, I am not going to hide the fact that if others buy from this company it might save me maybe, $50.00 or so bucks down the road at some point on one of my compressor buys, but, I don't own stock in this company.

The main reason I am recommending this company and their line of compressors is that I am going to buy from them because of their expertise, build quality, warranty and reputation of 31 years in the industry.

This is the company I would recommend to a FAMILY MEMBER if they asked me for advice on where to find the bast value for a compressor, I would direct them to EATON Compressors.

All I am doing is exactly what some of you are doing, I am trying to make the best buying decision, like you.

And after looking at many different brands, comparing warranties, parts, build quality and proven longevity for over 6 months, I think this company and there products are SOLID.

All I can ask guys is before you spend any money, go to this companies website.

Check them out.

Look at ALL there Gas Compressors and their WARRANTY and then read their TESTIMONIAL page.

If after you have done that you don't think this company has YOUR next compressor then that's ok.


You still owe it to yourself to check these compressors out before you make a final decision.

http://www.eatoncompressor.com/catalog/item/536572/437924.htm

If you do find like I have that this may just be YOUR next compressor, don't just thank me, tell a friend or other roof cleaner about your experience and PAY IT FORWARD :>)


All the best to you in what ever you decide,
