I would personally not purchase the NARDI due to 3 things. ONLY available with DIN attachment. ONLY 220 EURO. Finally, not breathable air quality. For that much dough, you should absolutely be able to breath it.

Matt, You need to keep out of this.  Joe and I are contracted to provide very detailed reviews of the compressor.  We will surly note the air quality is not breathable in the review however, I should point out, neither is the air in your tires.  You know, the air you want to keep.  We may even do a side by side comparison of the game harvested with breathable vs non breathable air.  Now, if their are other things you would like to know, feel free to PM either of us,  We both want to make sure you have all the facts on performance and can make an informed decision on your future purchase.

Interesting. And who is anyone to tell me to stay out of this? I certainly hope that you are merely being sarcastic. Otherwise, we will talk in PM's and things will be said that may hurt other's feelings.

Not really seeing how I was wrong on those accounts from the product descriptions on either the electric or gas version Travis. Do explain, I am genuinely intrigued if this is the case.

I don't know about breathable air or the DIN connection but the electric I do. Pyramyd air says the plug just needs changing, wrong. It's a 220 single phase unit, that means you will need a transformer to bump up the 120v to 220v. I had this argument with people at work over a German heat treat oven. The electrician had to come back out and install a transformer.

The 220v is rated at 15 amps.

A minimal breaker for a 15 Ampere device would normally have to be at least 30 Ampere trip rated. 120V which normally is only 110V is ran on a 15-20 Ampere Single Pole Breaker where multiple devices are run. Normally this is no more than 10-12 outlets or lights. Dealing with 220 is a totally different ballgame as you are only running one device on a dedicated circuit with a dual pole breaker using two "hot" leads and one "neutral/ground".

As six stated, this is not a simple plug and go thing. I did residential wiring as well as some commercial for just shy of three years and believe me, this stuff is not to be taken lightly at all. I would not say to not buy the compressor due to this. But I don't will say that unless you have a LOT of experience with breaker boxes and even EURO wiring, just leave it to someone licensed that does. For one, a 600 Ampere main panel board does not play well with others! And lastly, if you have a fire and it isn't to code, YOU are at fault.

OK first im just sharing information from their website and also what I know personally. First you can remove the euro plug and simply replace it with a common dryer 220 plug and run it on your dryers home circuit this is what im doing so I know it works fine also they ship with a adapter for pcp for and additional $29.95 and as for breathing air I will let you read the following though I have never needed to use it for anything other than filling bottles. http://www.nardicompressori.com/en/prodotti-en/nardi-breathing-air-en/high-pressure-en/product/148-atlantic-p

These are very well built units and should last a lifetime. The gas unit is very nice for those who might want to take it in the field. I have several customers with them and Ive herd nothing but great reviews.

I still don't see how it's running right. Euro is a single 220v hot leg with a neutral and a ground.  220v American household current is 2-110v hot legs, a neutral and a ground.
