Hill Compressor Review
« on: September 25, 2020, 08:42:15 AM »
Hill compressor review. I always enjoy Andy’s Airgun reviews.

Huzzah for the Brits Engineering and making a compressor at home in jolly old England.

Curious compressor that seems it will excel for a backyard shooter shot goes through a lot of air. I am disappointed that they really didn’t design it for filling SCBA Tanks, as the compressor also isn’t designed for remote / 12 volt use. Still... it sure seems like the future is bright for Airgun compressors.

Now let’s see an American company up the Ante and design, engineer and manufacture at home a superior compressor. Can we do it and do it competitively?

I now have two of these pumps. One for the farm (others use this pump several times a week), and one at home to replace the Omega Air Charger.

They are rather fast in refilling my Impact, and can fill tanks up to 300 BAR, or a bit short of the standard 310 BAR most of their competition does. When I say fast, it take about half as long to fill my Impact, but part of that time is a result of a larger internal volume the Omega has. Loudness wise, they're a bit quieter than the Omega, but not by much. They do use a bot less wattage which is good.

So far, neither unit has failed to live up to its expectations. This said, the second one (at home unit) pumps a bit higher than the display setting. No big, as I just set the pressure a bit lower (245 BAR vs. 250 BAR).

Currently, they're only available from Pyramyd Air here in the USA.

I have a Hill EC-3000 compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your tank as a courtesy (4,250 PSI limit).
