Anyone have any good or bad info on this brand of compressors?

There are a myriad of Chinese all-in-one-box compressors, and they all appear to have the same 12 VDC motor and compressor. The "features" are a bit different (auto-shutoff, gauge, LED readout, etc.), but all share the same moisture trap assembly. If you shop around, you can buy one with all of the goodies, for about half the monies, the same compressor sells for, with someone's name on the outside. You'll have to wait to get it, especially now with the west coast backup of container ships.

On their web site, at least one is the same compressor as the Air Venturi unit. They don't list pricing however.

You didn't ask.... The choice of compressors depends a lot on how much shooting you do. I average about 250 rounds per week, so I can't have an "iffy" compressor. I currently own two Hill EC-3000s, and have has very little issues save for one. And Hill took care of that quickly. Omega makes several models (I used to have their smaller unit. Steve has it now). They're flawless, but they use water cooling with a radiator and fan. So they're continuous running, even when filling am 88 cf tank from empty to 4,500 PSI (300 BAR). The Hill, and others, use just a fan, but cycle off and on automatically. My advice is to think hard about it, and spend more than you intended to. You'll be glad you did!

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).

Thank You Alan,
I purchased a New Warrior compressor last week form a local store that buys things on skids and then resales them.  It was in the original box and still had everything with it. It had no oil in it and I don't believe it was ever run.  A tag on the compressor says that it passed QC inspection on 2020/07/12. This is a 110 volt unit and it looks like a Yong Heng compressor I owned 2 years ago. I will try it out this week and report back. I paid $200.00 for it.

You got a bargain! Steve (our webmaster sort of guy) knows how to fix a lot of the lessor priced models. So if things are correct, make sure you ask him for advice.

Compressor works great and it is not too noisy. Time will tell.

Yong Heng compressors are pretty awesome as long as you pay attention to:

1. Change the oil regularly, especially early on.
2. Check all connections regularly, and have spare Dowty seals. I keep a bottle of soapy water on hand and every fill I spray the compressor down.
3. Get rid of any brass fittings! I had one come apart on me at 4K pressure. Danger!
4. The cigarette filter drying thing is worthless. Get a big filter that uses 3 or 4 types of media.
5. Bleed here and there while filling to purge moisture.
6. Open bleed valve to start the compressor or you will break som.
7. I use a five gallon bucket of water to cool, and usually fill it partway with ice. Heat kills these things.
