 Features and Specifications BTFP02011

  • As a 6-gallon Pancake Air Compressor, one of its most outstanding features is the maintenance-free, oil free pump. Contactors realize the advantages of the oil-free pump as it means virtually no maintenance will be required, resulting in zero downtime. The six gallons of the tank size is sufficient to store adequate air supply when needed, this mean the compressor pump does not run continuously and ultimately saves on wear and tear of the pump and the motor. The fact that it is electric adds to the advantages as being environmentally friendly and when considering the rising gasoline prices, you appreciate the electric motor.
  • Providing 0.8 horsepower, which is relatively low, it is still remarkably efficient and you will be able to run several tools without any problem. If air delivery is one of your concerns, you can put it safely to rest when looking at the CFM requirements. The 150-PSI maximum reserve tank delivers 2.6 CFM at 90 PSI. If you wonder, what these numbers say in simple language it simply explains that you can run tools on it for a long time and recovery is quick. This level runs several small air tools and nailers with great ease.
  • It is very compact and small for an air compressor with the dimensions as follow; Length is 16-inches, Height is 19, 1/2-inches and Width is 16-inches with a weight of only 33 pounds. It takes up very little floor space and when not in use, it is easy to store. A lightweight feature adds tremendously to features and advantages as it makes it more portable to move around a house and lifting from trucks, etc.
  • Additionally it is outfitted with a draw valve for safety making emptying the compressor easy and thorough. For added protection and safety, the controls are inset and the multi-functionality of the machine is improved by the fact that it features two interval couplers, this allow for two users simultaneously.
