I went whole hog and bought an Ingersoll Rand 60 gallon (vertical tank), 2-stage, 230 volt compressor a couple of years ago from Northern Tool. Big mistake. The motor burned out (spectacularly) after only about 10 hours of running. Northern Tool wouldn’t answer my emails and Ingersoll Rand wouldn’t either. Did some Google and found this to be a common occurrence. Crap Emerson motor and nobody would do anything about it. Bought a replacement motor for almost $300. Shoulda bought a cheap compressor with a better motor. I’m sure the Ingersoll compressor is a good one, but I’m also sure that Northern and Ingersoll are still selling the same unit I bought with the Emerson motor. Just my experience...
